2012 Record: 0-9 (0-6 SouthWest Suburban Red), did not qualify for playoffs.
Head Coach: Tyrone Richardson, 0-18 at the school and overall
Assistant Coaches: Rolland Jason Royal, Christopher Hales, Norris Fields, Quinlan Porter.
Returning starters: 10 (7 offense, 6 defense)
Top Offensive Players: Tevin Newman, Sr., RB/WR (650 yardds from scrimmage, 2 kick return TDs); Antonio Johnson, Sr., QB (800 yards passing, 13 TD passing; 300 yards rushing).
Top Defensive Players: Deonta Moses, Sr., CB; Christopher Trotter, Sr., SS.
The Times Breakdown: The Falcons were outscored 369-76 last season, holding only one opponent under 34 points while scoring more than eight twice. They haven't won a game in Richardson's two years at the helm. But, the coach notes: "We were playing freshmen and sophomores. Now they're juniors and seniors." Moses (4.4 40-yard dash) and Newman give the Falcons blazing speed. Johnson brings experience and versatility under center.
Quote: "Honestly, my plan is to shock the world. Everybody is counting us as a win ... I honestly think we have a very good chance to make the playoffs." — Richardson
