Outlook: Lakes, Grant, Vernon Hills, Antioch and North Chicago all could average 200-plus yards per game rushing in what is almost a no-passing league. Lakes probably has the best defense.

Top five players Ht. Wt. Yr.

RB Direll Clark, Lakes 6-1 215 Sr.

RB Arnold Shead, North Chicago 5-11 175 Jr.

RB David Starkey, Wauconda 6-0 225 Sr.

QB Kyle Whitman, Grant 6-1 190 Sr.

RB Austin Klotter, Antioch 5-10 170 Sr.

Quote: ‘‘We had three 1,000-yard rushers last year. They were good, but they didn’t get those yards by themselves. It helps having an experienced offensive line.’’ — Grant coach Kurt Rous.

Predicted Finish: Lakes, Grant, Antioch, Vernon Hills, North Chicago, Wauconda, Round Lake.
