OFFENSE

The Panthers return six starters to run mostly out of I-formation. A strong O-line is solidified by Mason Valliere (6-4, 265, Jr.), Reggie Weygandt (6-1, 240, Sr.), and Josh Carlisle (5-10, 275, Jr.). Taking the reins at quarterback, Alejendro Flores (5-8, 145, So.) will have a couple of steady targets to watch for. Jaxon Ward (6-1, 245, Sr.) will be essential at fullback, and Dalton Ward (5-9, 150, Jr.) will contribute at wide receiver. 

DEFENSE

Valliere and Weygandt will shore up the defensive line as well with Jaxon Ward at end. Valliere is an explosive athlete who can disrupt from the D-line and has speed to pressure

the QB. He will only get better with maturity and strength. Cornerbacks Dalton Ward and Flores will work to create turnovers on the field and break up passes. Ulisis Cortez (5-10, 160, Jr.) will be another asset at linebacker. “After a slow start last season the team rallied together to win three of the last four to make the playoffs,” said head coach Lance Williams. “The Panthers hope to take that success and build on it for the 2022 season.” Coach Williams is joined by assistant coach Brad Bradshaw.
