Team Outlook: Since I’ve been here we have changed the culture.Huge step what we did in 2022. Make it the new normal. Changing the narrative. 2023 season update, the Panthers record is 1-3 currently.

It all starts with the offense with a new starting QB in Evan Crappell who got some reps at quarterbavk in 2022. The offense has some skill talent around the young QB in three-year starter WR/CB Luke Tarver (5-9, 165), RB/OLB Namon Bennett (5-11, 200), a four-year starter leader with 4.59 speed and power, RB/LB Cole Morris (5-9, 190) who has power and is a tough runner, WR/SS/OLB Carter Whipple and four-year starter FB/MLB Gage Toups (5-10, 215) another 4 year starter, tough leader, and a 2 way starter. The lineman will make the difference this season and it is led by three-year starter DE/OL Harrison Blaze (5-10, 240), Center Donnie Adams (5-11, 245) who is a three-year starter, second-year starter DT/NG Trey Lique Pratt (6-0, 250), OL Dylan Armond (5-10, 260).

The skill talent on both sides of the ball leaders back are strong Safety Luc Leleux (5-8, 170), a three-year starter, returning starting safety Rhett Ratcliff (5-9, 165, Sr.) and two-way starter CB Luke Tarver make up a pretty good secondary.
