Coaches Comments: We were a very young team last year that went two rounds deep in the playoffs and are now ready and poised for a long run into December. We will have to stay healthy all year and should be a team to contend with. I think the playoff spots are pretty much in the air except for Pflugerville and Westwood. Other teams that should be strong are Round Rock as well as new comer to 5A, Pflugerville Hendrickson. Should be a dog fight each week.

Key Players:

* Mason Castaneda (OL) a dominant force up front, returning 1st team all distrct

* Demetrius Wilson (FS) the QB of our defense is returning as 2 year starter
* Casey Winn (OL) Versatile Lineman who will play Tackle for us in the fall
* Victor Bevis (DE) Big and tall and will cause problems for opposing QB's
* Adrian Price (DE)
* Jayvon Dempsey (DE)

Notes:

  • Mike Says: The Panthers have a lot of returning starters from last years young playoff team. The defense will need to get better after giving up 28+ points in 8 of their 12 games. Look for them to go 7-3 or 6-4 in the regular season and come in 2nd in the district behind Round Rock Westwood.
  • Chris Says: I still can't watch the Pflugerville Panthers play without thinking of the Dillon Panthers from Friday Night Lights.  These Panthers are not playing off a script however, they are playing off pure heart.  Look for them to take the next step to improvement this season.  They will notch a few more wins and look strong going into the playoffs.  As long as they don't run into a team of destiny like they did last year with Spring DeKaney, they could even last longer this time.
