   A group of home-schooled students will face a new test Saturday when they play their first ever high school football game.  

   The Central Panthers junior-varsity team is the brainchild of Coach Bob Schembre, an associate pastor at Rockport Baptist Church in Arnold.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Schembre formed the Mid-East Missouri Homeschool Football Association and the team in the spring after discovering interest among families in his church who home-school.  

   The 14 boys, mostly 12-14 year olds, will play both offense and defense when the Panthers travel to Clarksville, Missouri to play the Clopton-Elsberry Indian Hawks.

   Schembre told the paper that next year, he hopes to add a North team of players from O’Fallon, Wentzville and St. Charles, and a South team with players from the Jackson and Cape Girardeau areas. He'd also like to add a varsity team next year.
