The McComb Jr High football team lost last night to the Red Devils of Arlington.  Yes the loss hurt but it shouldn’t cloud all the great things this team accomplished.  They finished in second place of the BVC-Blanchard Conference with a fine -  5 wins – 3 loss record.  They showed great improvement since that first day in August when they began their season.  They always worked hard and strived to improve their football skills.  They jelled as a TEAM and encouraged each other to be better.  They were great to work with. They had fun.  The young Panthers of McComb Jr High should walk tall and proud knowing that they have wrote their chapter in the Book of Panther Football and it is good.
