FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Panthers have playmaker backBy Stephen Dawkins Published 9:38pm Thursday, September 13, 2012
“He has a presence when he’s out there that breeds confidence in everybody around him. He’s a great leader as well as a good player, so we definitely missed him. Still, that’s no excuse to not play well every week.”
WHO WILL WIN?
Jemison let off the gas after building a big lead over Oak Grove last week. It’s the perfect teaching opportunity for the coaching staff: the team plays well and improves over the previous week, but there are enough mistakes to bring up so that the players continue to work hard. The Panthers will provide more evidence Friday that they are becoming a dangerous team.
Pick: Jemison | Picks record: 3-5
