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: Lyons Township

Head coach: Kurt Weinberg

Assistant Coaches: Mike Morrison, Mark Kropke, Tim McAlpin, John Beutjer, Jason Brauer, Bryan Bergman, Jayvee Williams, Sheldon Harris

Biggest storyline in 2014: Can the Lions avoid getting off to a slow start?

Name to watch: Senior RB Leonard Ross has major college offers and recruiting looks this summer.

Biggest Hole To Fill: The Lions will start the 2014 season with four new starters in the defensive secondary.

EDGY's Early Take: Lyons Township has seven starters back on offense this fall and senior lefty QB Tommy Fiedler has experience. If Lyons can fill a few key holes, they have a chance to make some real noise this fall.
