Strong Offensive Line Leads Panthers in Preseason Scrimmage

Head coach Eric Meyer said he's please with how well the Mehlville High School football team did in a preseason scrimmage Friday.

Coach Eric Meyer said his team was tired of beating each other up in practice.

But on Friday, the Mehlville football team got plenty of practice beating up other teams during a preseason scrimmage at Oakville, where the offensive and defensive lines were dominant.

The eight-team scrimmage had the Panthers facing Seckman, Riverview Gardens and Roosevelt high schools in 12-play mini-games.

“I thought we had some good things that worked,” Meyer said. “You come out and try to iron some things out and we know there’s more things we have to work on.”

The team returns quarterback Brendan Moore, who stepped in last season for an injured Jeff White. White graduated and Moore will take over the offense.

Senior Kirkland Burton started the Panthers’ game against Riverview Gardens by scoring on the opening drive. Meyer said Burton, along with Greg VonderHaar and Andy Fountaine, had great carries in the scrimmage.

The Panthers also have several returning starters that play on both sides of the ball.

Jimmy Sellers, Dwayne Lewis, Zach Hughes and Patrick Partee will be leaders on both offense and defense, Meyer said.
