Last Year: (1-9, 1-5) District 6-2A DI
Coach: Mikeal Miller (28-17) 4 Years
Last Post Appearance: 2011 Regional Semifinalist DII
Players to Watch: OL Connor Mayes, WR/DB Jared McMakin, DE Dalton Jones, DB Trent Alexander, WR Kearon Redmon, K Collin Fagan, LB Bryce Himmelreich, OL Seth Caraway
Preview: After going 9-4 in 2011 the Panthers suffered one of their worst seasons going 1-9 in 2012. Miller is ready to move on and make some noise in the district with OL Connor Mayes taking care of the line. A strong senior class including DE Jared McMakin and DE Dalton Jones will give this team the edge on Friday nights.
Miller still needs a QB to emerge, but can count on OL Connor Mayes to help him along. It's a tough district, but Van Alstyne should expect nothing less than playoffs. Having the correct mindset is half the battle.
