OFFENSE

Head coach Phil Webb leads the Harrah High School football team into the 2018 season, looking to improve off an unfortunate 2-8 finish a year ago. Webb, who is in his sixth year in charge of the Panthers, will have a big job on his hands, as only two starters from the 2017 campaign return to the offensive side of the ball in 2018. That won’t stop Harrah from competing, though, and coach Webb will have them ready to go. Jeff Roberson (6-2, 215, Jr.) will move over to running back this season, after starting every game at quarterback in 2017. A dual threat type of player, Roberson ran for more than 1,000 yards as quarterback, so he is definitely comfortable with running the ball. Carson Bell (5-10, 215, Sr.) will be a good and reliable target for the incoming quarterback. Bell has strong hands and is a versatile receiver for the Panthers.

DEFENSE

Keeping with the inexperienced narrative, the Harrah defense will also have a lot of new faces lining up for this unit. That can be a good thing, though, because it means there is less familiarity for opponents and Harrah will want to take advantage of that. Brian Byers (5-10, 170, Jr.) is the lone returning starter from last year’s team at defensive back. He will need to assume a leadership type role as the only player with great experience. Harrah will play an “Okie” style defense, which will likely look like a type of 3-4. Coach Webb said both the offense and defense will have a lot of young, new faces, and he expects this group to be more athletic and competitive than previous years. It should be an exciting year for Harrah and you can expect the players won’t back down from any type of challenge.
