It is easy to be overlooked when playing in the same district as Vian but the Panama Razorbacks are looking to turn heads in 2013.
Brandon Ellis returns 19 starters from a team that reached the playoffs in 2012 and expectations are running high in Panama.
Gabe Harp returns at running back after totaling 527 yards rushing last season and tied for the team lead with four touchdowns. Receivers Ryan Shirey (11 catches for 128 yards) and Ben Whiteaker (15 catches for 270 yards and three touchdowns) both return as threats on the outside.
Harp will also anchor the defense as he made 97 tackles last season while Shirey added 68 from the secondary.
Panama opens the season on Sept. 5 at Gore-
