After Friday's win, coach Bob Wilson praised Simon's game management, primarily with some of his checks at the line of scrimmage last week, changing into plays that turned out to be more productive than the original calls would have been.
Friday's win was big for several reasons. PC North (4-2 overall, 2-1 District 6A-3) has already matched its win total of the last two seasons. The Panthers are close to assuring itself of a playoff spot with some winnable games ahead. PC North hosts U.S. Grant (1-5, 0-3) at 7 p.m. Thursday at Putnam City Stadium.
“We want to be the class that changes stuff around here. We want to be the class that gets us to the playoffs and ends this drought,” Moore said. “A lot of people don't believe in us, and we want to show them that we can do it.”
