Did You Know That...John Hersey High won the 1987 Class 6A state title?

Top Impact Player for Hersey in 2017? Senior QB/LB Owen Goldsberry. Goldsberry has been a main target for multiple FCS level colleges this spring and summer. Goldsberry is drawing recruiting looks at QB/LB and is one of the top names to watch in the Mid Suburban Conference in 2017.

Biggest Concern heading into 2017? Will it all come together this season for the Huskies? Hersey will feature a nice mix of veteran names along with a strong underclassmen group.

EDGYTIM's Way Too Early Take on the 2017 John Hersey Huskies?

Hersey has been down for the past few years, but the program has been reloading over the past two seasons and this team could be on the verge of a breakout. With 13 starters back (7 offense 6 defense) plus some nice star power in hand look for the Huskies to challenge in the MSL East and beyond this fall.

EDGYTIM's Way Too Early regular season record prediction for the John Hersey Huskies? 6-3/5-4
