Notes: last season the Panthers had their best season in 5 years, reaching the regional finals. They would fall to rivals Longview by 1 point. The Panthers will look to replace running back Isaiah Phillips but Polk should be a force down field. Garcia will switch to defense full time to add to a stacked line. Thompson will lead the defense that has plenty of DI offers.
