*Milford Center Fairbanks (5-5): The Panthers started 1-5 last year but won their final four games, including key victories over Lehman Catholic and playoff team Waynesfield-Goshen, to capture a share of the Northwest Central Conference title with Fort Loramie.

The goal this year is to win a league title in the program’s first year in a new league (the MOAC) and earn the program’s first playoff berth since 2007 and second since 2000. Several key pieces return.

Senior QB Hunter Burnett (6-1, 190) is back after throwing for 2.082 yards and 22 TDs last season. He also ran for three TDs. Joining Burnett in the backfield is senior RB Brent Nicol (6-1, 185) who ran for 1,009 yards and 13 TDs last year.

On defense, Fairbanks returns its top two tacklers in senior LB Connor Smith (5-11, 195/70 tackles) and junior DL Will Day (6-1, 180/59 tackles)

The schedule is totally different.

The only remaining opponents from 2012 are non-league foes Mechanicsburg (Week 2) and Triad (week 3). Galion comes aboard in Week 1 and the MOAC, which includes Jonathan Alder, Marion Pleasant and North Union, starts in Week 4.

Said head coach Dave Gebhart: “The road to success is always under constuction.”
