2017 IC Prep Knights summer Camp/7on7 plans


Illinois Wesleyan

Did You Know That...Head coach Bill Krefft, an IC Prep alumnus has posted a 49-19 overall record in his six seasons in charge of the Knights football program.

Top Impact Player for IC Prep in 2017? Senior QB Luke Ricobene. Ricobene was one of the Knights keys on offense in 2016 and is back this fall. Ricobene, who has been drawing steady looks this spring and summer has a great chance of having a huge senior season for the Knights.

Biggest Concern heading into 2017? So who becomes the go-to guy for the Knights in 2017? Gone is standout All State two way impact player Jordan Rowell (NIU) from a season ago. So who becomes The Man?

EDGYTIM's Way Too Early Take on the 2017 IC Prep Knights?

I have no reason to not think that IC Prep won't again be one of the top small school IHSA teams for 2017. .The Knights bring back a stable of experience on both sides of the football and have more than enough underclassmen talent on the way.

EDGYTIM's Way Too Early regular season record prediction for the IC Prep Knights? 9-0/8-1.
