Observations: The three coaches all were members of Centennial’s 2008-09 team that won a Class 3A state championship, as were O’Neil, Jordan Johnson, Kinney and Piper. That talent will mix well with the abilities of more recent graduates, including former Parkland College products Nottingham and Makabu. Centennial’s alumni team could have been even more potent, too, but former Illini Rayvonte Rice and Michael Finke had professional conflicts.
