The start of the 2015 season is only days away! Once again, the Mighty Panthers will kick things off with their cross-river rivals, Henderson County in the season opener for both teams. The Colonels are coached by former Reitz leader Tony Lewis.
The Panthers won last year’s encounter, 34-13, but Lewis led the southerners to a win at the Bowl in 2013.
Reitz leads the series, eight games to five. Coach Hape is 19-6 overall while Lewis is 114-40. They are 1-1 against each other.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. at Reitz Bowl.
