The Parkway Panthers are gearing up for what they hope to be another super successful season. The Parkway Panthers are gearing up for what they hope to be another super successful season.
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The Parkway Panthers football team lost 35 seniors last year, and one of them was Brandon Harris, who is now the LSU quarterback. 

But the team had an historic season, making it to the state championship game, and did it all playing on the road throughout the entire playoffs. They want to make it back to the top again this year.

This year's schedule will be tough like the 2013 season. The big question is who is going to step into the driver's seat. Keondre Wudtee will take over the quarterback position and lead the Panthers' offense. Wudtee will be joined by senior wide receivers Demetrius McAtee and William Mcknight.

"Wudtee is certainly unproven but I believe he is going to be the best quarterback in the country," said head coach David Feaster. "People have asked me to compare him to Brandon, I don't want to compare him to Brandon, I don't want to compare this year's team to last years team.

"I think this year's team is going to be great and I think Wudtee is going to be the best quarterback in the country."

Senior lineman Kameron Eloph will help lead a young offensive line. One positive is that they've been to the Promised Land and yearn to make it back. Feaster believes that last year's state championship run was an eye opener for his entire program.

"The whole off-season, the whole summer, they wanted to get back to the Superdome and they know now that its possible," Feaster said. "Up until now, it was kind of a pipe dream or just something to talk about or maybe it could happen or who knows. Now we know it's possible."

William "Bo" McKnight will be a senior this year and hopes that the Panthers hard work this off season will get them back to the Dome. 

"It was a good feeling because it was the first time that I been to state in my high school career," he said. "We are going to try to do it again and this time we are going to win."

On the defensive side of the ball, Parkway will have speed and athleticism and a quick scoring offense.

"I think over the past few years we've played very good defense," Feaster said. "We've had some really good defensive players but what we are getting now is some guys that are so athletic and are running the sprints on our track teams. If they were on another team they would be getting the ball every play,"
