Coaches Comments: I look for a team with good strength and speed. However, we need to fill a few holes at the skill position.

Returning Starters: Offense: 5 Defense: 6

Key Players:
* Jakari Dillard- Big and physical WR that can make people miss then run away from them. Texas Tech commit Good looking, Plus-athlete, who excels at multi-sports. Should play right away for Kingsbury. TOP 30 WR 610 yards receiving 1st Team All-District WR & P

2012 JV Record: 9-1

Primary Offensive Formation: Spread

Primary Defensive Formation: 4-3

Notes:
* Have gone 17-7 over the last 2 seasons
* Have a new head coach this season

  • Mike Says: The Panthers had their best season since 1974 last year. This years team brings back lots of speed and toughness and should be pretty good. The offense should be solid with QB Blake and WR Dillard leading the way. Look for them to continue their winning ways and win 8 or 9 games in the regular season with their game against Melissa being for the district title. One or two rounds in the playoffs should do it.
  • Chris Says: Coach Lee Wilkins takes over a program in good shape and will try to continue the momentum.  He has a good chunk of his starters returning plus some JV athletes moving up with a lot of skill.   Don't look for a big letdown nor a big uptick... just good Princeton Panther football.  Once in the playoffs, they should be good for two rounds.
