Player of the Week
“He was a defensive leader, [and] he made a lot of tackles,” head coach Chad Phillips said. “[Ethan is] very inspirational and very influential to the team.”
In last week’s 3-0 loss to Trinity, the Panthers held the Lions to 120 rushing yards and 47 passing yards. The entire game was a tough defensive battle between both teams.
Trinity’s 21-yard field goal to begin the fourth quarter broke the stalemate. For Starr’s Mill, the loss marked the team’s lowest production on offense this season, gaining only 86 rushing yards and 65 passing yards.
“We’re going to fix the fundamental stuff and get the ball rolling on offense,” Bramblett said.
After last week’s loss, the Panthers are now 4-2 and 1-2 in region play. The team hosts Fayette County tonight in Panther Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
