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 29.

School: TF South

Head coach: Tom Padjen

Assistant Coaches: Bob Padjen Trent Jensen Paul Massat

Biggest storyline in 2014: Can the Rebels make a state playoff run in 2014? TF South always is a factor in the South suburbs and look to remain near the top of the heap. 

Name to watch: Senior RB/DB Torian Lewis (6-foot-0, 175 pounds) will be asked to lead the Rebels on both sides of the football this season.

Biggest Hole To Fill: TF South will have some talent on offense including QB Cody Petrich but can they reload at several other key spots? South will have some real inexperience starting the season.

EDGY's Early Take: TF South head coach Tom Padjen enters his 38th season (217-148 record at TF South) and Padjen consistently has his teams ready to play. If the offensive skills can gain experience quickly, the defense should be a real positive this fall. I expect another state playoff appearance for the Rebels in 2014.
