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: Lakes Community

Head coach: Luke Mertens

Biggest storyline in 2014: Can the Eagles make another postseason run in 2014? Some big names have moved on, but the roster is far from bare at Lakes.

Names to watch: Senior OL Ryan Mullen (6-foot-4, 270 pounds) has made his early college choice; he is verbally committed to Miami of Ohio.

Biggest Hole To Fill: Who steps up to replace graduated QB TJ Edwards (Wisconsin)? 

EDGY's Early Take: The Eagles will bring back a ton of experience on both sides of the ball in 2014 with 17 starters in the fold. If Lakes can fill in at a few key spots, look for the Eagles to again make the postseason in 2014.
