“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: St. Charles North
Head coach: Robert Pomazak
Assistant Coaches: Dan Meyo Var (DL); Rick Magsamen (Var LB/OL); Jared McCAll (Var OC/RB); Tom Poulin, Eric Bostrand, Tim Pinks, Todd Genke, Joe Nemetz, Ed Stahl, Brett Wikerak, Justin Brennan, Dan Duncan
Biggest storyline in 2014: Can the North Stars get to 6 plus wins in 2014? St. Charles North just missed a state playoff bid in 2013 because of a lack of playoff points. A sixth regular season win would secure a state playoff bid regardless of the strength of schedule.
Name to watch: Senior OLB Jordan Bergren (6-foot-4, 225 pounds) is an athletic and versatile player for the North Stars. Bergren could play several different positions at the college level.
Biggest Hole To Fill: The North Stars will need to reload on the offensive and defensive line in 2014. Senior OL Brendan McCarthy (6-foot-3, 245 pounds) is the only returning starter on the line back in 2014.
EDGY's Early Take: The North Stars and head coach Robert Pomazak has worked hard to get the North Stars into a contender. If the line play can come around look for St. Charles North to again challenge for a state playoff spot.
