WATERVLIET, Mich -- Watervliet has punted this year, once. The Panthers employ a strategy where they don't punt, always go for two and often onside kick.
"We're not going to punt the football," 12th year head coach Jeremy Andrews said. "That's just the philosophy we kind of moved to a year ago where we decided we were going to take four downs every time."
So far, it has worked. The Panthers (4-0) are off to a great start averaging 57 points per game so far this season, Friday night comes their biggest test yet when Kalamazoo United (4-0) visits Panther Stadium.
The Titans are pretty good on offense in their own right averaging over 40 points per contest this season.
