Summary: The defending Division VII state champions will move Aaron Davis from WR to QB, replacing Tanner Schroeder who graduated. He was the leader on the field for the Panthers in 2018. The Panthers have to replace him along with linebackers, running backs, and defensive backs. A lot of young sophomores need to mature quickly and play fast. Alge says his players are coachable and work hard. He now has to get them to play assignment football. They have seven seniors this year. They only had nine last year and won it all.
