Meet the Punchers August 18th, 10 a.m.
Wednesday, August 15, 2012 • Posted August 15, 2012

The annual "Meet the Punchers" will be August 18th 2012, at the Puncher Dome. The meal will be fried catfish and all the trimmings with donations gladly accepted.

There are a lot of questions that face this year’s squad with the graduation of 17 seniors off of last year’s State Championship team. The Punchers enter the season with a pre-season ranking of number #4 in the Dave Campbell’s football magazine and a ranking of #3 among the coaches in the Coaches poll.

Offensively we will have to rebuild as we only have two returning veterans with Rio Schmidt at fullback and Woody Watson at Tight End. Elliot Bibb will be the signal caller for this year’s Punchers and based on his performance at Strong Safety last year we have high expectations that he will be able to guide us at Quarterback.

Defensively we lost quite a few players as well and there will be quite a bit of shuffling by Coach Burns to find the right mix. Who will fill the void of the 17 graduating seniors? That question along with some others will begin to be answered in the scrimmage against the 2A Bulldogs from Hamilton. Go Punchers!
