Biggest storyline in 2014? How will West Aurora fare in a new conference in 2014? The Blackhawks will leave the DuPage Valley for the Upstate 8 conference, West Aurora played in the old Upstate 8 conference from 1963 to 1997 before moving to the DVC.

Name to Watch: Class of 2016 RB/LB Drake Spears (6-foot-2, 200 pounds. Spears has been very impressive this winter in spring in various camps and 7 on 7 events. Spears will be asked to lead a team that is deep on experience in 2014.

Biggest hole to fill? Quarterback.

EDGY's Early Take on the 2014 West Aurora Blackhawks: If the Blackhawks can find a a quarterback to replace graduated three year starter Quintez Jones (Northern Michigan) West Aurora could surprise in 2014.
