  • Mike Says: The Panthers will field a pretty good team again this year. Look for them to win 7 or 8 games in the regular season. Once in the playoffs, Abbott will be the team to beat for them to get past the Regionals.
  • Chris Says: Oakwood brings back less than half their starters, but should do well in the district anyway.  These Panthers know how to score and Coach Heckathorn can get the younger players up to speed with some of their early games.  A repeat of last season's record is very likely.
