How they fared in 2014: 0-9 (0-7 Southwest Suburban Blue); Joliet Central failed to qualify for the IHSA state playoff field.
Biggest storyline in 2015: Can the Steelmen earn it's first varsity level win? Joliet Central hasn't won a varsity football game since the school district separated the sports programs of Joliet Central and Joliet West back in 2010 (0-45 record).
