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: Nazareth Academy

Head coach: Tim Racki

Biggest storyline in 2014: Can the Road Runners live up to the preseason hype?

Names to watch: Senior OT Jack Shutack leads a big, physical and experienced offensive line which includes four D1 level recruits this coming fall. Shutack has several early scholarship offers.

Biggest Hole To Fill: Who will the quarterback be in 2014 for the Road Runners and can they find an effective play action passing game?

EDGY's Early Take: This could be the most talented Road Runners roster I can ever remember. With at least 10 D1-level prospect on the roster, much is expected from this group. Depth however is a real concern for the 2014 season and if the Road Runners can stay healthy they could challenge for a state title in Class 5A.
