[MORE COUNTDOWN TO KICKOFF: 93 Days to Kickoff: Wheaton North]
Biggest storyline in 2015: Can the Spartans make a strong run this fall? North welcomes back 12 starters from a season ago and welcomes in a junior class that posted an 8-1 record at the sophomore level in 2014.
Names to watch: Senior running back John Clark will be asked to carry the load, and offensive/defensive lineman Dimitrije Milutinovic is a two-way leader on both Spartans lines.
Biggest holes to fill: The Spartans will need to find some answers on the defensive line.
EDGY's early take: Glenbrook North looks ready for a strong regular season. My early measuring stick for the Spartans will be a Week 3 Central Suburban crossover game vs. Evanston.
