Did You Know That..Brooks College Prep has posted three straight 3-6 seasons?

Top Impact Player for Brooks Prep in 2017? Junior QB Darrin Cotton Jr. Cotton Jr. has a chance to become one of the most sight after signal callers in the CPL and potentially Chicagoland in the Class of 2019. Cotton Jr. has already been identified by several college and recruiting services.

Biggest Concern heading into 2017? Brooks Prep will again need to deal with a loaded schedule which includes two tough early games including Kaneland and Solorio plus the usual tough suspects in the CPL.

EDGYTIM's Way Too Early Take on the 2017 Brooks Prep Eagles?

Brooks and head coach Benjamin McCall will have some talent back this fall and includes some younger names to watch as well this season. If the underclassmen group can come along and develop sooner rather than later, the Eagles could challenge for a winning record this fall. .

EDGYTIM's Way Too Early regular season record prediction for the Brooks Prep Eagles? 5-4/4-5
