6 Sports Two-A-Days: Shade Panthers

Updated: Friday, August 16 2013, 03:09 AM EDT

Coming off their first playoff appearance since 1989, the bar has been raised for the Shade Panthers. Don Fyfe takes over for Michael Pribish as head coach, and thanks to a successful junior high program, he will have over 40 players on this year's team, the most in recent memory. The 2013 season won't come without growing pains though; Shade lost a great deal of talent from last year's playoff team. Fyfe will have to sort through the youth in training camp to see if the Panthers can be a contender.
