Panther Football Team Off to Great Start

Coach Hyatt's Panther football team defeated rival Porter Ridge Friday night with a score of 19-9 to improve to 2-0 on the season.  Our Panthers are off to their best start since 2003, due in large part to a very tough defense.  According to Coach Hyatt, "We are very excited about our start.  The team has done an outstanding job of preparing themselves for our season.  A huge praise goes out to our assistant coaches.  These guys are committed to this football program and these kids.  Through the first two games, our offense had been able to control the tempo of the game, and our defense has played really well."  Week three brought Parkwood to Panther Stadium after rain postponed the game on Friday night.  The Panthers won big with a final score of 51-26 and now face the Forest Hills Yellow Jackets in Panther Stadium on Friday.
