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: Neuqua Valley

Head coach: Bill Ellinghaus

Assistant Coaches: Rodney Jones, Clayton Figi, JR Niklos, Gary Steinbach, Jason Berry, Nick Benson, Mike Matthieu, CJ Robertson

Biggest storyline in 2014: Can the Wildcats continue to be a power in Class 8A?

Names to watch: Senior QB Broc Rutter gave Indiana State his verbal commitment a few weeks ago.

Biggest Hole To Fill: Can the Wildcats find a running game in 2014? And which running back will carry the load?

EDGY's Early Take: Has any program made more strides over the past handful of years than Neuqua Valley? With 13 starters back from a season ago, look for the Wildcats to again be a force in their last season in the Upstate 8 conference and in Class 8A for 2014.
