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: Morris

Head coach: Alan Thorson

Assistant Coaches: John Courter, Bill Lauer, John Wodziak, Keith Anderson, Greg Larsen, Matt Seidel, Dan Hoffman, Derek Johnston, Jon Lanning, Justin Zink, Ryan Clauson

Biggest storyline in 2014: Can Morris play more like Morris in 2014? The Redskins spent a rare postseason at home in 2013 and that won't cut it in Grundy County.

Name to watch: Senior quarterback Griffin Sobol leads an experienced offense in 2014. Sobol has size and tools and is a definite name to watch in recruiting circles.

Biggest Hole To Fill: Morris plays in one of the toughest conferences in the Northern Illinois Big 12 East where they will need to compete every single week. The Redskins can't afford to take any weeks off in the regular season and that means depth will be tested.

EDGY's Early Take: Morris has experience back with 15 starters in the fold. They key will be if the Redskins can get out of the gates strong and a good early start could translate into a good 2014 season.
