Notes:
* Last playoff appearance was 2008

  • Mike Says: The Panthers only return 5 starters from last years squad. This years team will depend a lot on quarterback E.J. Speed. Look for them to go 4-6 or 3-7 in the regular season and come in 5th or 6th in the district. Two more district wins would get them in the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: North Crowley has struggled since their championship run in 2003 and it looks like the struggle will continue in 2012.  The Panthers bring back very few starters and not even a decent number of lettermen.  I expect the Panthers to do similar to last season and miss the playoffs, but build some experience for next season.
