By Margaret BarnettThe Panthers ended their 2013 season with a record of eight wins and four loses. They placed second in District Play, won Bi-District, and fell in the Area contest against Stamford. The Dream ended sooner than anyone in the town of Panhandle wanted, but the ONE TEAM played together until the end.
Offensive MVP was Tyler Hall, the Panthers’ quarterback for the past four seasons. Named to the District 1-1A Offensive All District team were Austin Terrell and Travis Jewett as receivers. Tanner Barnett was a unanimous selection for his play on the offensive line. Second team selections on offensive were Patrick Shadid as running back and Kyle Weiss on the line. Second team selections on defense were Jason Durham, defensive line, Dalten Luman, outside linebacker, and Ryan Shemwell, linebacker. Honorable Mention honors on offense went to center, Adam Jones and lineman, Elijah Tompkins. On defense Kollin Abbe earned Honorable Mention for his play on the line.
The 18 seniors will leave huge hole to fill but with the remaining returning underclassmen and the talented players that will move up from the Junior Varsity, next year’s team should do just fine. Next year the Panthers will be re-classified as 2A, but in reality it remains the same as this year. It is just the UIL removing the classification of 6-Man, and renaming it 1A. The District realignment will not be announced until February, so the Panthers’ District foes will not be known until that information is released.
Tyler Hall finished his senior year with great numbers. He carried the ball 192 times for a total of 1,094 yards and 17 touchdowns.
