After the devastating floods that have impacted much of the Woodlawn community, members of the Panther football team are looking to return to the gridiron. The team was able to practice on Thursday for the first time since flooding hit the area last Friday. The Panthers will look to practice once again Friday at 3 pm, before travelling to Live Oak Saturday. The Panthers and Eagles will have a twenty-four period practice, with a scrimmage period to end the practice. The teams look to begin the practice at 5 pm. The teams will be fed by Live Oak boosters following the practice.
While the practice schedule for next week is still up in the air, the Panthers look to have a normal game-week schedule. The Panthers will finish the week Friday when they meet McKinley High School in the East Baton Rouge Parish Football Kick-off Classic Jamboree. The schedule for the Jamboree has changed due to the flooding. Woodlawn will battle McKinley, but the two teams will no longer meet in JV action. The Panthers will kick off at 6:30 pm, followed immediately by Glen Oaks vs. Tara.
