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: Wauconda

Head coach:  Dave Mills

Assistant Coaches: Shawn Rudolph, Steve Ziolkowski, Chris Prostka, Joe Ryback, Davis Mills, Brandon Mize, Josh Christan and Tyler Sinclair

Biggest storyline in 2014: Can the Bulldogs live up to it's high expectations in 2014? Wauconda has 12 starters back this fall including 9 starters on offense.

Name to watch:  Senior OT Mike Bianchi (6-foot-6, 285 pounds) and senior OT Logan Bullish (6-foot-6, 290 pounds) give the Bulldogs twin towers at the tackle spot. Expect both players to draw more recruiting looks this fall.   

Biggest Hole To Fill:  The Bulldogs will need to develop 9 new starters on defense this fall. 

EDGY's Early Take: Wauconda will easily have one of the biggest offensive lines in the Northern suburbs in 2014. If the defense can come around the offense is capable of leading Wauconda to a potential state playoff berth in 2014.
