The Panthers will open District play on Friday night when the Fulton County Pilots come to town.
The Pilots, who are 0-6 and have been outscored 141 to 275 this year, will be looking for their first win of the season.
Fulton County has two players that have rushed for over 300 yards for the year, number 9, Justin Jones and number 5 Arron King. King as quarterback has passed for 383 yards for three TDs and has four interceptions.
On paper the Panthers should dominate this game.
The Panthers top two rushers, Joshua Bigbee and MJ Jones, have rushed for 741 yards and 606 yards, respectively and the RHS squad has four other runners that average in double-figures for rushing yards per game. And QB, Jaylyn McMurry, had thrown for 248 yards, seven TDs and no interceptions.
The Panthers have further motivation to have a good game this Friday. It is Senior Night at Rhea Stadium and senior football players will be recognized in a ceremony beginning at 6:30 pm. At halftime, the 1950 WKC Championship team will be recognized.
Additionally, players that participated in the Alumni Football Game are invited to attend and will be granted free admission. Alumni Game players should enter at gate 2 (located on the east end by the band concessions) as there will be a pass list with their name on it.
And this will be the final regular-season game at home in Rhea Stadium for the Panthers this year. The RHS squad finishes the regular season with three road games, after an off-week next week.
The Logan County Cougars are off this week. After a close loss, 13-12, last week to Hopkins County Central, the Cougars are making preparations for a match-up at LCHS against District powerhouse Hopkinsville next week.
