Coaches Comments: We expect to be a playoff team and think we can make a deep run in the playoffs. This being said we are looking at a very,very tuff schedule with a mountain of travel. Our schedule will be extremely challenging having 6 road games and only 3 home games.We will also be playing many ranked teams. We must stay healthy and rely on our younger kids to step up and fill some roles. District Outlook: 1.Oakwood 2. Apple Springs 3.High Island 4.Chester

* Mike Biedrzycki -RB/QB/DB 5'9137 Jr. All District as Soph.

Notes:
Won the district title last year

  • Mike Says: The offense should have no problems with Durham and Randle leading the way. Brummett will be a force on defense. Apple Springs and High Island will be a challenge in district but the Panthers should be the favorite. Once in the playoffs a trip to at least the Regionals is in the plans. Expect them to finish 9-3 or 10-2.
  • Chris Says: The Panthers should take district behind a healthy Branson Randle's running game and the Damiyne Durham show (he made major contributions at multiple positions.)  They may be better suited for a playoff run this season than last.
