Prep sports coordinator Anthony Zilis had a whirlwind weekend with all the weather playing havoc with area football schedules. What did he learn after Week 2? How good is the Champaign Central football team? What other fall sports are catching his eye? Anything is fair game in his weekly chat, which gets started at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, and pepper him with questions beforehand.
