Spring Hill Hopes Experience Carries Them To Playoffs

It's scrimmage time in Spring Hill where the Panthers are hoping to punch a ticket to the playoffs for the second straight year.  Third year head coach Robert Bero hopes experience will help carry the Panthers, who have 10 starters and more than 20 seniors returning with varsity experience.

"We feel good about it now," Bero said, "but there's a long way to go and there's a lot of things that can happen between now and the end of the season."

Bero should know. His Panthers teams have been hit hard over the past two seasons with injuries, especially at running back. But then again, that's where experience will come into play.

"If a guy goes down this year, I think our football team will know how to handle those things," Bero said.  "We'll just go on, somebody will step up, and we'll continue to go."

That plan worked for them last year when their fourth string running back helped lead them to the playoffs. Two of those injured backs return, as do their quarterback, a wide receiver, tight end and lineman.  And, with a team fully emersed now in the Bero system, a district title is not out of the question.

"I think this team has really bought into his system, the way he plays offense and defense," said senior tight end/defensive end Winston Manley,  "so it's going to look good.

"We really believe if we play hard-nosed defense, and we move to the ball our way on offense," said senior quarterback Chris Lee, "we can beat anybody who steps on the field with us."
