2017 St. Edward Green Wave summer Camp/7on7 plans

June 17 at St. Eds June 24 at St. Eds July 15 at Downers Grove South July 22 at Washington HS July 28 at St. Eds under the lights

Top Impact Player for St. Edward in 2017? Senior QB Dylan Mlinarich. Mlinarich has been easily one of the more impressive quarterbacks I've seen live all summer at various college camps. Look for Mlinarich to draw continued recruiting looks this fall, and I would not be surprised to see say a FBS level or FCS level school offer either a scholarship or PWO.

Biggest Concern heading into 2017? Overall depth. The Green Wave welcome back 2o of 22 starters from a season ago, but if needed does the Green Wave have enough reserves to provide some much needed depth?

EDGYTIM's Way Too Early Take on the 2017 St. Edward Green Wave?

The Green Wave ran into a brick wall in 2016 once they hit the meat of it's Metro Blue schedule and wound up on the outside looking inside come state playoff time. While this is a team that has some talent and experience back, the Metro Blue for 2017 might be as strong as it was last year. I look for the Green Wave to scrap and battle it's way all season long. Again have I mentioned how touch the conference will be this fall?

EDGYTIM's Way Too Early regular season record prediction for the St. Edward Green Wave? 5-4/4-5
