Head coach: John Ivlow
How they fared in 2015: 5-5 (4-3) Southwest Suburban Blue Conference. Bolingbrook made the 2015 Class 8A state playoff field. The Raiders lost to Naperville Central in opening round action.
Biggest storyline in 2016: Can the Raiders offense kick things into gear this season?
Names to watch this season: DE Izayah Green-May (Wisconsin); WR Kendall Smith (Illinois)
Biggest holes to fill: Gone is four-year varsity starting LB Tuf Borland (Ohio State), who is now in Columbus.
EDGY's Early Take: Bolingbrook has a ton of talent back for 2016, including several BCS-level recruits. The Raiders offense gets a new look under new offensive coordinator Doug DiFusco, who comes over from Nazareth Academy. If the Raiders offense can click sooner than later this team could be very dangerous.
