The Mighty Panthers are no strangers to undertaking a big challenge, and ReitzFootball.com is doing the same!
As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the website and almost 100-year history of Reitz High School, we are setting a big goal for ourselves in digging deeper into the history of the Mighty Panther football tradition.
That’s why we are proud to announce PantherPlus, a brand new premium extension of ReitzFootball.com created to preserve the history of Reitz Football!
“When Coach Hape told me there were old game films going back to the 1940s,” remembered Dan Engler, who created The Unofficial Reitz High School Football Homepage in 1996, “I wanted to find a way to share them with the Reitz Nation and keep them from being lost to time.”
That sparked an idea and has lead to the creation of the PantherPlus membership area.
As a PantherPlus member, here’s what you’ll get:
- Videos: PantherPlus is like the Netflix of Reitz Football! We’ve already got game films from the 2009 state championship season and several from 2010, plus a ton of other videos. We’re adding more all the time, too!
- Statistics: We’ve dug deep and compiled the most complete stats possible for 1971, 2009 and 2015. With these as a foundation, it is our goal to one day have stats for EVERY Reitz Football game…ever!
- Player stats: Another long term goal, we’ve got an all-time leaders board for several different statistical categories and will be adding more information as it becomes available!
- Vote for Player of the Week & Year: We want to reward those who support the website financially by giving them the chance to nominate and vote on each week’s Player of the Game. Then at the end of the season, you’ll get to nominate and vote for Player of the Year!
- Special discounts: As a member, you’ll get access to special discounts on Reitz Football t-shirts!
- Historical rosters, regularly scheduled features + more!
To complete this goal, we need your help. Invest in preserving the history of Reitz Football for future generations!

“This is a project of immense proportions,” added Engler. “No other high school football team in the country has ever tried something like PantherPlus. Of course, there’s no other high school football team in the country quite like the Reitz Panthers!”
