  • Mike Says: The Panthers return 14 starters from last years Semifinal team. This years team led by RB/DB Mathis will be just as good. They are a TOP 10 team and will go 9-1 or 8-2 in the regular season and win the district championship. Once in the playoffs, Falls City will be their toughest competition in the region.
  • Chris Says: Burton brings back a ton of experience from last season and that will ensure another great run.  New Head Coach, Jason Hodde inherits quite a bit with these Panthers and should win district in his first year as a head coach.  Expect a deep playoff run as well.
