Stettler Panthers has been practicing rigorously throughout the past week ahead of their first pre-season against Red Deer Hornets in Stettler on Saturday, Sept. 12.

With only six players from last year and the rest being all new recruits, Panthers will have to figure out a game plan.

“I feel we’ll know more after there first game,” said Zeke Ryan, coach and defensive coordinator. “We’ve been working hard and these young gentleman are amazing.”

Ryan added that Panthers would be going with a new offensive scheme, which he thinks would work well.

Ernie Shireff, coach and offensive coordinator said, “My expectations are always simple, I expect the boys to practice hard, play hard and have fun.”

Having coached the Stettler Panthers for over a decade, Ryan will continue to coach Panthers with added help from Shireff this season.

“It will be a very tough first game,” said Shireff.

Anticipating tough competition from Red Deer and later in the season, Lacombe, Panthers are getting ready for the Saturday face-off.
