  • Mike Says:The Panthers will rely on a great trio of wide receivers this season. That and 15 starters returning will get them back into the playoffs. Look for them to go 7-3 or 6-4 and fight Melissa for the district championship.
  • Chris Says: Princeton is in a tough district but it helps they are bringing back so many returning lettermen and starters.  Melissa will be tough to get past, but even if the Panthers don't win district, they will be going to the playoffs.  How far they go in the postseason will be determine by how well Coach Dillard has done at convincing his team they are winners and how much they like their recent success.
