Much Improved Panthers Boast Talent

oboro panthers football01OWENSBORO, Ky. (7/28/14) — Competing with familiar foes McCracken County and Henderson County in Class 6A, District 1 leaves Daviess County little room for error when it comes to the pursuit of a district championship.

The Panthers, who finished the 2013 season with a 6-5 overall record, will look to challenge Henderson County and defending champion McCracken County in Class 6A, District 1, which also features Marshall County (1-10).

Top returnees back for the Daviess County offense are junior running back/linebacker Chase LeCroy and junior running back/defensive back Samuel Spiceson.

A productive offensive tandem, Spiceson and LeCroy ranked as Daviess County's top-two rushers last season, combining to rush for 959 yards and 10 touchdowns.

The versatile LeCroy also led Daviess County in receiving, reeling in 22 catches for 335 yards and two scores.

Quarterback Luke Bailey (100-of-186 passing for 1,362 yards and eight touchdowns) must be replaced.

Defensively, Daviess County lost its top-two tacklers - Zack Edlen and Jacob Nanny - to graduation.

Senior defensive end Easton Phelps (77 tackles) is the leading defender back for the Panthers.

After dropping its first two games last season, Daviess County notched four straight wins. Central Hardin blanked the Panthers 48-0 in the opening round of the 2013 Class 6A Russell Athletic/KHSAA Commonwealth Gridiron Bowl.

Daviess County's regular-season wins were victories over Apollo, Grayson County, Muhlenberg County, South Warren, Marshall County and Ohio County.

The Panthers dropped regular-season games to Owensboro, Owensboro Catholic, Henderson County and McCracken County.

Daviess County captured its last district championship in 2008.

The Panthers will visit longtime rival Owensboro for a regular-season opener Aug. 22. Kickoff for the Daviess County-Owensboro football game is slated for 7 p.m..
