The Panthers will go up against East Central this Saturday at Reitz Bowl for the Regional Championship.
The Trojans (10-2) were ranked No. 7 in the final AP poll of the season after winning the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference Division 4A title.
Reitz head coach Andy Hape, now 39-9, has never coached against East Central. He did, however, play against them in 1992, when the Panthers won in overtime, 28-21.
The Trojans are coached by Justin Roden, who is 34-16 in four years at the school. This will be Roden’s first meeting against Reitz.
