The Timber Lake Panthers will have some new faces at key positions this season. Graduated senior running backs Tanner Kraft and Austin Pateneaude and multi-year starting quarterback Jett Peterson helped lead the Panthers to a 4-4 record last season. All four of TL’s 2014 losses were against teams that made the playoffs. But the Panthers will not be without returning starters or varsity experience, as the roster is loaded with seniors and juniors.
