Head coach: Bill McNamara
How they fared in 2015: 7-4 (4-2) North Suburban Lake Conference. Stevenson made the 2015 Class 8A state playoff field. The Patriots defeated Conant then lost to eventual 8A state champion Loyola Academy in second round action.
Biggest storyline in 2016: Can the Patriots go farther this season in the Class 8A playoffs?
Names to watch this season: WR Henry Marchese; LB Sam Marks
Biggest holes to fill: Who steps up to replace graduated standout QB/WR Jack Sorenson (Miami of Ohio) ?
EDGY's Early Take: The Patriots welcome back nine returning starters (four on offense, five on defense) from a season ago. If senior QB Aidan O'Connell (6-foot-4, 180 pounds) can continue to show progress and can also reload a bit on the offensive line? Stevenson can make a strong push in the newly realigned North Suburban Eight Conference and beyond.
