Biggest storyline in 2014: Can the Blazers hang tough against an improved West Suburban Gold Conference? Addison Trail has talent and experience returning, but so do the likes of Hinsdale South and Downers Grove South.

Name to watch: Senior wide receiver Jaavion Bradley (6-foot-3, 190 pounds) has all of the makings of becoming an impact player for the Blazers.

Biggest question: Getting off to a good start. The Blazers open the season against Glenbard South, Hinsdale Central and Downers Grove South. They need to be ready to go the moment the bell rings this fall.

EDGY's early take: The Blazers and Parpet Jr. have the pieces in place to have a winning season. Senior quarterback Mike Rybarczyk is back in the fold, plus four starting wideouts. Addison Trail could be playoff bound this fall if they survive those first three games.
