The varsity football team took another win Friday, Oct. 19, 76-32, against Eastpointe. They broke the school record on most points scored in a game and also made the playoffs for the second year in a row. In this last home game of the season, everyone on the team gave their jersey to a teacher who had an impact in their years throughout high school. The hand-picked teachers made a tunnel before the game to welcome the  team onto the field Friday night.

Junior quarterback Javon Osterhout rushed for 292 yards and threw for 137 yards. Junior safety Martell Turner had two interceptions as well.

“Although we’ve had struggles making field goals in the past, we did pretty good on Friday,” Osterhout said.

This week, Osterhout is up for offensive player of the week, and Turner is up for defensive player of the week on the Detroit Free Press website. On Friday, Oct. 26, the Panthers will travel away to go head to head against Lakeview for the playoff game.
