5 Players to watch
DeKalb, Jr., RB
The best running back in the area features four Division-I scholarship offers, including Illinois and NIU. His production should only go up in his third year on the varsity.

The lone returning linebacker for Kaneland in 2013, Koehring is a huge presence in the Knights’ run defense.
Genoa-Kingston, sr., RB/DE
Lopez was injured towards the end of the season last year, but should be valuable two-way contributor for the Cogs in 2013.
Sycamore, sr., QB
Mottet appeared to get more and more comfortable as the 2012 season wore on, running a textbook two-minute drill in the playoff loss to Montini.
Sycamore, sr., WR/S
Niemann has committed to Iowa as a prospective linebacker, but will play wide receiver and safety for the Spartans in 2013.
