CSNChicago.com is your top destination on the road to the 2015 high school football season. CSN preps contributor “Edgy” Tim O’Halloran will take a look at 100 teams in 100 days, counting down to the opening night kickoff on Aug. 28.
School: St. Charles East
Head coach: Bryce Farquhar

[MORE SEASON PREVIEWS: Lake Zurich]
Biggest storyline in 2015: Can the Fighting Saints reload? With just seven starters back from a year ago (four offense, three defense), this will be an inexperienced team to start the season.
Names to watch: Kicker/punter/wide receiver Nick Candre has D-I level kicking and punting abilities, and quarterback Zach Mitchell returns as a starter in his junior season.
Biggest holes to fill: Overall depth. The Saints have a strong group of underclassmen that has an opportunity to step up in a hurry this fall.
