PETAL, MS (WDAM) - Petal high school football players are putting in work and getting it done this preseason.
Petal had a strong 2015 season.
The Panthers fell just short of a state title, losing to Starkville in the title game.
Head Coach Marcus Boyles is encouraged about the team's focus entering 2016.
One area of strength will be the defensive line
"I think it starts with Chris Monroe right in the middle, our nose guard who had a really good junior year and has gotten bigger and stronger over the summer. So I think he's going to have a great year," said Boyles. "Another guy to look out for I think is Kane Roberts. Defensive end. Started for us last year. Those two guys are kind of our leaders up front on defense."
