With the first week of practice behind them, the Panther football team is anxiously looking forward to the upcoming 2016 season. The Panthers look to continue to build on recent success, which has included playoff appearances in each of the last three seasons.

Fans will be able to get their first look at the 2016 version of the Panthers on August 18th. The Panthers will travel to Live Oak for their annual fall scrimmage that will begin at 6 pm.

Woodlawn will then look ahead to the East Baton Rouge Parish Football Kick-off Classic Jamboree at 6:30 pm on August 26th. The Panthers will face former district rival McKinley in a JV/Varsity doubleheader. Each game will consist of two twelve minute halves.

The regular season begins on September 2nd as Woodlawn travels to Hahnville. Week 2 opponent Destrehan visits Woodlawn on September 9th. The Panthers are then on the road Weeks 3 through 5, travelling to Lafayette on September 16th, St. Amant on September 23rd, and West St. John on September 30th. The grueling pre-district schedule should help to prepare the Panthers for District 6-4A play.

The first district game brings Belaire to Woodlawn on October 6th for Homecoming. On October 14th, the Panthers will host Tara. The Panthers then welcome Plaquemine to Woodlawn on October 21st for the annual “Shirt Off My Back” award night. Woodlawn travels to Louisiana Leadership Institute on Week 9 to face St. Michael. The Panthers end the regular season on November 4th, Senior Night, by hosting Livonia.
