It is a sad for the Reitz Nation as Panther legend Jim Byers passed away today.
Byers was an all-state player for the Panthers’ 1953 state championship team and also played for the University of Michigan. He went on to have a wonderful coaching career and was a member of the University of Evansville, Missouri Valley Conference, Indiana Football and Reitz Football halls of fame.
The staff of ReitzFootball.com would like to extend our prayers and condolences to the Byers family.
