WACO, Texas (KWTX) The Midway Panthers have been a model of consistency under head coach Jeff Hulme. All they did after making it to the state championship game in 2017 was turn around and go 11-2 and make it four rounds deep in the playoffs in 2018.
After losing big to Trinity in the first game of the season a year ago, the Panthers didn’t lose again until they faced with powerhouse Allen in the playoffs.
The problem this year however, is that you don't have James Fulbright to carry your offense. An offense which at times could look stagnant when he wasn't in the game or they couldn't get him going.
The Panthers will still more than likely find a way to score points because even though they were “inconsistent” at times, the Panthers still averaged 47 points a game in district play.
Hulme and his staff will have to find a way to get Nebraska commit Will Nixon the ball in space. They will also have to decide who is getting him that ball. With Tyler Webb moving over from Bosqueville after a great sophomore year for the bulldogs, Hulme will have some thinking to do on who will be his signal caller going forward.
The Panthers will start the season with a rematch with the Trojans of Trinity on the 30th.
