Published: Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2013 5:54 p.m. CDT


Coach: Tom Fedderly (49-17, seventh season at Kaneland)

2012 record: 10-1, 5-0 Northern Illinois Big 12 East; lost in Class 5A second round to Lincoln-Way West

Key players: Drew David, sr., QB; Jesse Balluf, sr., RB/S; Gary Koehring, sr., LB; Alex Snyder, sr., OL; Jaumaureo Phillips, sr., DL / OL; Dylan Nauert, sr., WR / LB; Matt Rodriguez, sr., K, Kaneland; Justin Diddell, sr., DL/OL; Joe Komel, sr., DL/OL

Key losses: Zack Martinelli, WR; Zach Theis, OL

Fedderly's take: “We know that a lot of people will be breaking down that film [of the playoff loss] and seeing how to defend us, what to attack, so we've got some things that we had to work on over the summer and things that we have to repair. And of course we've got some new looks that we're going to put in.”

Our prediction: 9-0
