Yazoo County High School has had some great football teams over the past decade.
In recent years the Panthers have made strong playoff runs, only to be eliminated by the eventual state champions.
This year the Panthers have made history, and the team enters the Class A State Championship Game with a perfect record. What an incredible season this has been!
We sensed that this team had something special early on. The offense is loaded with talent led by quarterback Kenneth Gainwell, who was recently recognized as Class 3A’s “Mr. Football.”
The offense has plenty of talent, and is a passing and rushing threat, but what may be the key to greatness for this year’s team is that its defense is equally talented. Yazoo County has one of the most aggressive defenses we’ve seen in over a decade of covering high school football.
We will be proud of Yazoo County no matter how Saturday’s game turns out, but we are confident that our Panthers will be bringing the state title back to Yazoo County.
