Catholic High will look to go through a rebuilding transition with inexperienced talent that will need to step up quickly and carry the team this year.
Although the Panthers possess a small senior class, it's a group comprised of committed guys who want to see the program succeed.
A demanding non-district schedule with showdowns against Vermilion Catholic, Parkview Baptist, Erath, Leesville and Eunice will prepare Catholic for a competitive district slate.
The Panthers will have many players going both ways, so being conditioned at the start of the season is imperative for their early success, and will have to catch some breaks with guys not getting injured throughout the season.
