QUICK HITS: Ladell Betts, Pine Crest Panthers Ready For The 2020 Season

While the Coronavirus is dictating high school football, across the country, we can understand the need for ongoing exposure.

Because we promote high school football in south Florida year-round, there is no need to stop right now.

In the coming weeks, we will have a brief look at the school in south Florida in a segment that we call “QUICK HITS”.

Today, our “QUICK HITS” is back in Fort Lauderdale to check out Pine Crest.

Summary: While last season was certainly a learning one for first year head coach Ladell Betts and his team, this coming season will be one that really sets the tone for the future.

Finishing 4-5 with some veteran players, Betts, a one time NFL standout, saw exactly what it takes to be successful at the high school level.

While the emphasis has always been about the balance between academics and athletics, Pine Crest student/athletes understand that while the objective is to play this sport at the highest level possible, paving a way for a career path is always a priority.

With many experienced players moving on to the next level, this is a program that will rely on seniors up front, but look to a number of underclassmen – many with limited experience.

The objective is to continue to lay a solid foundation – and Betts and the Panthers are doing just that.
