CAMP POINT, Il. (WGEM) -- On the surface, a lot has changed in the off season for the Central Panthers.
For one, they're no longer co-oped as Central-Southeastern, which will drop Brad Dixon's team from class 2A to class 1A.
Plus, some of the biggest pieces from last years state semifinal squad are gone, including WGEM Player of the Year Drew Miller, and the lethal backfield combo of Doug Weese and Dalton Heubner.
Changes aside, the Panthers might have their best shot yet to win a state title this fall, which has been the goal ever since a loss in last seasons 2A state semifinal game.
