CTK: Lenoir City Panthers

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - The Lenoir City Panthers enter 2014 with a new head coach. Jeff Cortez takes over the top spot after working as defensive coordinator with the Panthers the last few years. Cortez is bringing a new offensive system that has a bit of a West Coast influence to it.

"What we are is a West Coast pass philosophy team, and then we've mixed in some option football. We hope that for people here it is something different. And that's what we like about it," says Cortez.

The Panthers are good up front on both sides of the ball. That is one aspect of the team that Cortez particularly likes. The Panthers open the season at home against rival Loudon in Week 1.
