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: McHenry

Head coach: Dave D'Angelo

Assistant Coaches: Dennis Hutchinson, Evan Kozlowski, Brian Wilbois, Zac Romme, Kyle Owens

Biggest storyline in 2014: Can McHenry's underclassmen success translate at the varsity level in 2014? The Warriors' incoming juniors (5-4) and sophomores (8-1) have won at the lower levels and will be asked to add some much-needed depth at the varsity level in 2014.

Name to watch: Senior quarterback Mike Briscoe has been drawing several FCS level recruiting looks this summer.

Biggest Hole To Fill: The Warriors will need depth and all hands on deck in 2014 with a schedule that includes Marian Central Catholic, DeKalb, plus the remainder of a loaded Fox Valley (Valley) slate.

EDGY's Early Take: The Warriors will have a real offensive threat in Briscoe, and if the underclassmen can contribute sooner rather than later, McHenry could make some noise.
