Middle Park High School (MPHS) Panthers football team held a scrimmage last week in Rifle. These early season scrimmages help the team maintain unity and develop focus.

Marc Loberg, Coach at Middle Park High School said, “The kids did great!”  The Panthers played a team who usually carry about 90 kids on their football roster and have made it to the final 4 in the state playoffs last year.  “We had many bright spots on both offense and defense and the scrimmage will serve as a building block for the rest of the summer team activities.”
