A BIG shout out to Central-Southeastern High School football team.

The Panthers were just one win away from going to the Illinois State Class 2A State Championship game in Champaign, Illinois. This team went deep into the playoffs. This team did not know about the word "quit." They gave everything they had and left it on the field. No, the Panthers did not make it to Champaign, but they did make believers out of many people who went to the games, who cheered them on until the last play of the game.

Thanks for the ride Central-Southeastern. This will not be forgotten for many many years.
