Panthers look to climb in PCL 3A standings

The squad, again headed by coach Jason Silbaugh, is aiming to improve from last year’s 4-6 record.

The Bonney Lake Panthers finished the 2017 season on a high note, scoring 48 points during a victory over Spanaway Lake and then, a week later, defeating Central Kitsap in a hard-fought, Week 10 contest.

Now, the task is to build on that momentum. The squad, again headed by coach Jason Silbaugh, is aiming to improve from last year’s 4-6 record.

To accomplish that goal, the Panthers will rely on some familiar faces. Among those is Amitri Allen, a senior who lined up on both sides of the ball last year, starting at both wide receiver and defensive back. When the season wrapped up, he was an honorable mention selection in both roles when Pierce County League 3A coaches picked their all-league teams.

Others back for another season in the teal and black are Pulutatasi Richardson, a senior offensive lineman; Cody Coffey, a senior running back; and Roman Casey, a senior defensive back. Richardson was a second-team all-league pick last year, while Coffey and Casey garnered honorable mention.

The Panthers will jump into a new season this Friday, Aug. 31, hosting a nonleague encounter against the Franklin Pierce Cardinals. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Sunset Chev Stadium.
