Top Impact Player for Galesburg in 2017? Senior TE/DE Jacob Carl is one of two returning tow ways starters for the Silver Streaks in 2017. Carl will be asked to provide leadership on and off the field this fall.

Biggest Concern heading into 2017? Can the Silver Streaks reload? Galesburg will look towards a younger but talented incoming junior class to help fill some key spots.

Galesburg is attempting to make back to back state playoff appearances in 2017 for the first time in school history. Hall of Fame head coach Tim Dougherty and staff no question has the program headed in the right direction but this fall will all depend upon if the incoming talent can step up.
