Top Impact Player for North Chicago in 2017? North Chicago senior RB/LB Garrett Turner is a major impact player on both sides of the football for the Warhawks this fall. Turner has been drawing some recruiting looks and will draw even more this fall.
Biggest Concern heading into 2017? Can the Warhawks build enough depth? North Chicago has a good core back for 2017 but can add more depth in a handful of key spots? Also can North Chicago's defense come to play and improve upon a rough 2016 season?
EDGYTIM's Way Too Early Take on the 2017 North Chicago Warhawks?
Could the Warhawks soar again? North Chicago looked pretty solid in 7on7 at Wheaton South and have good slills and speed. Head coach Addonte Adams could also be the right hire for a North Chicago program that's had struggles with the coaching position. Adams is a long time assistant coach who knows the school and North Chicago community well.
