Part of the success of the Panthers comes from their experience. Coach Zeleznik says he has eleven seniors that can all play, and when firing on all cylinders, his team can be a lot of fun to watch.

Many coaches over the past few years have not been happy with the regional format the IHSA has gone to to determine seedings. Zeleznik believes part of the fun of the playoffs is getting to see new teams and traveling to other areas of the state.
