Countdown to Kickoff: Cumberland Gap Panthers

Knoxville, (WVLT-TV), It is game week on the high school level folks and we continue our countdown to kickoff with
Cumberland Gap.

Neal Pucciarelli returns for his 5th season
at the school and last season wasn't a good
one for the Panthers, who finished 2-8.

That's the bad news, the good news is Cumberland Gap
returns 15 starters, including 8 on offense.
Experience and team speed will go a long way
to helping the panthers turn things around.

Coach Pucciarelli:"...We're very excited we've got alot of amends to make after going 2-8 last year we want to prove to everybody we can get back on track and have a real good football season."

Trey Treece( Panters TE):"...We didn't finish many games, we started out good and finished awful but this year we're trained and really ready to play."

The Panthers open the season this Friday, August 19th, against Wartburg.
