South Panthers Announce Team To Face The Bahamas


The South Panthers, fresh from their win over the Capital Selects, have announced their larger roster to take on The Bahamas in their NACRA opener on January 9th in Nassau. The team has many of the same players that have performed well for the team in the past as well as in their matches against the Capital Selects and Life. A few of the more notable names include Matt Hughston, who has been on tour with the Stars and has been in Eagles 7s camp, New Orleans standouts Jeff Reuther and Chance Doyle, and MVP against the Capital Selects Ron Omondi. Also on the roster is Amir Khan from Detroit. That club certainly isn't in the South but Khan is trying to get as many high level matches as he can to try and reach a higher level.

Most of the players come from clubs throughout the South, including Atlanta Old While, New Orleans, Raleigh, Charlotte, and more. At the same time, there is once again a selection of college players available including Casey Davidson and Nathan Driggers from the University of Georgia and Ben Lopata and Thomas Savoie from Louisiana Tech.

Take the jump to read more.
The team will take on The Bahamas with the potential of playing in more NACRA (or whatever it's called now) matches later on in the year although it is World Cup qualifying for NACRA so there may be a different format this year.
