School: Gelnbard North
Head coach: Ryan Wilkens
How they fared in 2015: 7-3 (6-2) DuPage Valley Conference. Glenbard North made the 2015 Class 7A state playoff field. The Panthers lost to Mount Carmel in opening round action.
Biggest storyline in 2016: Can the Panthers survive the DuPage Valley schedule and make a state playoff run?
Names to watch this season: WR/DB Jace James (Northwestern); WR/DB Tyrik Henderson
Biggest holes to fill: Can the Panthers reload on the offensive line?
EDGY's Early Take: The Panthers dropped out early in the state playoffs a season ago, yet this is a team that has played a ton of young talent on both sides of the football. The Panthers receiver and secondary group could very well be one of the state's top groups. Senior RB Vittorio Tricase along with junior WR/DB Greg Newsome are just a few more names to watch this fall.
