MT. VERNON —
Taylorville has missed the football postseason the past four seasons and has a combined record of 12-24 during that stretch. The Tornadoes had a stretch of seven straight playoff appearances from 1997 to 2003.
Charleston has made two straight playoff appearances and have a combined 20-4 record during that time. From 2008 to 2010 the Trojans fluctuated between four and five wins each season.
“Taylorville is just a good, solid football program and Charleston's had that same thing going on the last four or five years,” Shaner said.
