Road Trip: Seymour Looking to Reload

Seymour lost only one regular-season game last season,and that was to the eventual state champions from Stamford.

But the Panthers will look a little different this year, after graduating a slew of starters on both sides of the ball. Senior linebacker Oscar Munos says that they have a good group of underclassmen ready to fill those shoes.


"Many upcoming JV players showed a lot of leadership over the summer in seven-on-seven," Munos said. "[They] came up to every workout."

A big addition to the Panthers' offense last year was transfer running back Tristan Shepherd, who came in from Electra in the off-season and added a big spark to the Panthers rushing attack. With new head coach Hugh Farmer, the Panthers will look to Shepherd again this year, but will still aim for an effective passing game and a balanced offense.

“We're going to spread it out; they're accustomed to that," Farmer said. "It’s going to look similar to last year. We're going to try and throw the ball when we can, and run the ball when we can, too.”

"Last year when I got over here, we ran the ball a little more," Shepherd said. "But I think this year we're going back to passing; we're going to pass a lot more. Open it up with some running lanes for our running backs to go through, just have a more versatile offense."

Even with a younger, more inexperienced roster, the Panthers confidence hasn't wavered. Shepherd does expect that they will go through some growing pains, but still believes they have what it takes to come out on top at the end of the season.

"I believe that we be win district champs." Shepherd said. "I mean, it's not going to be as easy as it was last year, but I believe we have a good shot. Not everything is going to come easy to us; we have to put a lot of work in. We'll struggle here, struggle there, but I think we will make it."

Seymour opens their season on the road at Memphis August 29th at 7:30 p.m.
