West Gadsden High Mascot: Panthers
Class 1A District 2
2008 Record 8-2
Head Coach: Antonio Bradwell
Team 2009 Outlook : At the beginning of the of the 2008 season no one had any idea that Coach Bradwell’s squad was prepared to have a 8-2 season. This year, like last, the verdict is still out. Replacing All-American defensive tackle Gary Brown and QB Antonio Bostic will be tough. This year’s version of the Panthers has our voters somewhere in the middle, thinking if it’s possible or not to repeat the success of last year. Newcomer WR La Rico Dickey and FB Dustin Chason will have to carry an inexperience group this fall.
Strengths: Team speed and athleticism
Weakness: Team youth
Players to Watch: FB Dustin Chason, WR La Rico Dickey, LB Charles Shaw, S Darrion Lowery, CB Marcus Horne
