CSNChicago.com is your top destination on the road to the 2014 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 August 29th.

School: Grayslake North

Head coach: Steve Wood

[COUNTDOWN TO KICKOFF: Crystal Lake South]

Assistant coaches: Brian Johnson, Andy Strahan, Karl Jennrich, Jonathon Hadnott, Brian Horn, Dan Wilson, Jon Sawyer and Greg Geiger

Biggest storyline in 2014: Can the Knights play better defense?

Name to watch: Grayslake North senior running back/defensive back Titus Booker (6-foot-1, 190 pounds) gave Indiana his verbal commitment earlier this summer.

[COUNTDOWN TO KICKOFF: Lincoln-Way West]

Biggest hole to fill: The Knights will be loaded at the offensive skills positions, yet have just one returning starter in senior offensive lineman Dan Krajewski.

EDGY's early take: Grayslake North returns both their backfield and receiving corps from a unit that averaged nearly 40 PPG in 2013. If the Knights can find any sort of defense they will be a state playoff team this fall.
