Palo Verde Flag Football 2013-14 Capsule Preview



Head coach: Kevin Hagood, second season

2012-13 record: 21-1

Returning letter winners (starters): 13 (eight)

Top players: C Morgan Myers (Jr.), DE Mariah Kelly (Sr.), DE Taylor Shrader (Sr.)

Outlook: The Panthers bring back 13 letter winners from the squad that captured last year’s Clark County School District championship.

“Palo Verde has some big holes to fill,” Hagood said. “The Panthers lost their quarterback and running back from the championship team.

“The team will be inexperienced, but has some returning athletes that were key contributors in winning the title.”
