Parkview produced 487 points last season. That’s an average of 40.5 per game. The Panthers scored 40 or more in six games and were never held below 28. The offensive punch helped put the club in the top 10 all season and led to an 11-1 season, where the Panthers lost a heartbreaker to Archer in the second round.
Most of those offensive players are back, leaving the Panthers with high expectations this season.
“Our overall offense is very dynamic,” said coach Eric Godffee, who is beginning his sixth season with the Panthers. “I wouldn’t necessarily want to play against our offense”
Quarterback Jordan Williams returns to lead the attack. He threw for 1,976 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2018.
“He’s one that’s a great general on the field,” Godfree said. “He takes care of the football and knows what to do with it. He doesn’t get rattled.”
It helps to have a back like Cody Brown, who ran for 1,588 yards and 25 touchdowns as a junior last season. Brown (6-foot, 210 pounds) is a big body with the sort of speed that doesn’t match. Once he breaks the line, he has the potential to score. Brown ran for 200 yards and three touchdowns in the playoff loss to Archer. Brown already has a mailbox full of offers, including Georgia, Georgia Tech, Auburn and Florida.
