  • Mike Says: The Panthers are looking to get to the playoffs for only the 2nd time in 6 years this season. They bring back a lot of lettermen and starters. Their defense should be better with DL Villalobos and DB Foster coming back. Look for them to get 5 or 6 wins in the regular season and have a chance at that 4th playoff spot.
  • Chris Says: Keller Fossil Ridge is in a very tough district so don't look for them to take that title.  They will make it into the playoffs this year if they can pick up a key win or two against some of the middle-of-the-road teams in District 4-5A.  Once in the postseason, that Region is so tough, I don't see the Panthers lasting past two rounds.
