9. Providence (8-4): Celtics are counting on trio of three-year starters in tight end Jameson Geers (Minnesota), quarterback Kevin Conway and running back Aaron Vaughn to keep chains moving. Michael Alvarado, Dakota Straight and Brayden Garrigan play both receiver and defensive back. With lack of experience on both sides of line, Kevin Spelman will perform double duty.
10. Crete-Monee (10-1): Warriors boast pair of impact linebackers in three-year starters Ray Arebalo and Terry Elias. Defensive line looks to Xavier Slayton for production and leadership. Three-year starter Matt Simpson anchors O-line. Quarterback Chuckie Smith, running back Ryan Mastin and receiver Jamari Cobbins should produce plenty of excitement.
