NORTH SUBURBAN PRAIRIE
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.

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.
