Coach: Darin Ward (54-23, in eighth season).
Last season: 8-3 (Lost 49-6 to Charlestown in the second round of Class 3A sectional).
Outlook: Look for new signal-caller Buck and receiver Lander to team up for big gains on offense. The Panthers open with a visit to Perry Central. “That’s always a physical game,” Ward said. Other key games on the schedule include conference matchups against Brownstown and Salem, and at Charlestown on Oct. 4. “We always want to be playing our better football toward the end of the season.”
