7D Sports Settings

I'm a dad with a camera and I shoot my son's football games. I started with a Canon 20D when it came out and moved to a 50D when it came out. In shooting sports, I shoot in AI Servo on high speed, using the center point for focusing and the back button to activate the focus lock. I almost exclusively use a Canon 70-200L for sports. Nothing high end, but I'm all they've got.

I'm borrowing a friend's Canon 7D to try it out this weekend. He is not into sports shooting, so I can't really ask him about focus settings. I've heard a lot of chatter about the 7D focusing system. From what I can gather, it is great, provided you set it up correctly for what you're trying to accomplish. I'm not going to have a ton of time to experiment with the body, so I was hoping that sports shooters could supply the settings they use for sports.

Thanks in advance.
