Playoffs: No Playoffs

Returning Lettermen: 26

Returning Starters: Offense: 4 Defense: 5

Key Players:
LB Derek Burk (from Yoakum...coaches son)

Caney Creek will have a tough time making the playoffs but their new coach will be trying to turn things around and get the Panthers to the playoffs for the first time since 2006. They traded coaches sons over the off-season. WR Glenn Hill left with his dad to go to San Antonio Churchill but they get a very good LB in Derek Burk whose dad is now the new head coach. With 26 letterment returning, look for the Panthers to go 5-5 or 6-4 this season and fight for that last playoff spot
