Paschal Football is ready for their most promising year of District play. Paschal has not had a winning season since 2013 – 2014 and Panther Football has been working hard  for  one since Spring of 2021. 

Coach Keith says in his 5 years of Coaching Football at Paschal “the 2022 – 2023 team is the strongest team I have ever seen come out of the Panther Weight Room”. 

Paschal’s Captain and Quarterback Will Henry has high hopes for this season because of all the hard work they put in throughout the week. He says  “Mondays are dedicated for film to prepare more effectively for the upcoming opponent and the rest of the week is nothing but teamwork and dedication to the game”. 

And according to Will Henry Paschal’s not so secret, secret weapon “CJ (Gee)  will be mostly utilized as RB1, (he) is extremely talented, a freak athlete and … most the teams we face will be beaten by running our offense through CJ Gee”.

 CJ Gee also has a good feeling about this season after Rushing 1000+ yards last season with more expected this year. 

 CJ says “ We have been preparing all off season for district, I having nothing but excitement not just for myself but for everyone involved in Panther Football”. 

Panther Football has a bright future ahead of them for district play and are expecting a winning season.
