Panthers wrap up season with banquet

A happy end to a great season – Peewee Panthers said goodbye to their coaches on Thursday

Stettler’s peewee Panthers wrapped up their 2010 season with a banquet night on Thursday, Nov. 18, when the stellar players were awarded for their effort and all participants had a lot of fun.

Panthers head coach Gary Sorenson said it had turned out to be a quite successful season given that they had started with so many new players.

He said almost half of the team members would be graduating from peewee football and transferring to bantam Cougars in the next season, but that he would be looking forward to having all of his remaining players on the field once again next year.

Following players were awarded for their successful performance:

Russel Steen-most valuable player

Brett Roper-most versatile player

Clayton Page-most improved player

Terrance Burks- contributed the most with least recognition

Jordan Lane-best offensive rookie

Santiago Sierra- best defensive rookie

Joey Wiebel and Jordan Bauer – best offensive linemen

Kyle Lawrence-best offensive back

Hunter Berger-best defensive lineman

Teron Garbutt-best defensive back

Tim Gardner-best receiver

Casey Wright-sportsmanship award

One of the major highlights of the night, drawing a lot of laughter, was a successful impersonation of defensive coach Zeke Ryan by Teron Garbutt, which included donning of a wig.
