Did You Know That...Glenwood has missed the IHSA state playoff field just once (2002) since 1996?
Top Impact Player for Glenwood 2017? Junior WR/DB Devin Foy will again be a two way starter for the Titans in 2017. Foy is already on some early recruiting radar screens for the Class of 2019 in Illinois.
Biggest Concern heading into 2017? Can the Titans reload upfront on the offensive line? Glenwood welcomes back just one returning starter in senior Ethan LaFountain.
EDGYTIM's Way Too Early Take on the 2017 Glenwood Titans?
You can pretty much ink in the Titans to finish towards the top half of the CS8 year in and year out. With 14 returning starters back (9 defense 5 offense) including most of it's offensive skills from a season ago, look for Glenwood to push the top half of the conference this fall.
