Biggest storyline in 2014: Can the Friars reload on offense and handle a rough schedule?

Name to watch: Senior defensive back Aaron Garland (6-foot-0, 190 pounds) is a top-notch defender and leads an experienced Friars defense this fall.

Biggest hole To fill: The Friars offense welcomes back just one starter from 2013 in senior offensive lineman Greg Lazzara (6-foot-2, 230 pounds).

EDGY's early take: Having former Benet Academy and Iowa verbal commit in senior quarterback Jack Beneventi (6-foot-5, 215 pounds) end up on your doorstep for the 2014 season is a real boost for Fenwick. If the Friars offense can come around they will be another real threat in the Chicago Catholic League and beyond.
