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.
Head coach: Matt Weckler
Assistant Coaches: Dan Smaha, Tyler Bell, Tyrone Williams, Dan Sanders
Biggest storyline in 2014: Can the Barbs make a back-to-back state playoff appearance in 2014?
Name to watch: Senior running back Dre Brown will go down as one of the top athletes in DeKalb High School history. Brown is verbally committed to Illinois.
Biggest Hole To Fill: DeKalb will need to find a quarterback this summer. The offense will still rely heavily on Brown, yet someone else will need to take advantage of teams loading up to stop Brown.
EDGY's Early Take: The Barbs have some experience back and have a chance to get back to the state playoffs, yet the the Northern Illinois Big 12 East conference is loaded again.
