Panthers Find Different Type of Victory

In the past couple of years, the Panther football team has displayed a knack for second half comebacks which has made for some wild finishes. That the Panthers were a fourth quarter program also became evident this season. Whether it was the narrow, last minute road victories against Eureka and Crown, or the thrilling homecoming rally against Northwestern, the football team always rose to the occasion whenever adversity was present.

GC Football, Coach Schomaker, Overcome Obstacles

Overcoming adversity has characterized the Greenville College football season. No one knows this better than interim head coach Robbie Schomaker. It was a day during June when coach Schomaker would come to find out that Greenville’s head football coach, Ordell Walker, would be stepping away from the program. On that very same day he also got news that a player on the team, Luke Moore, was diagnosed with cancer. Not long after, conference offensive player of the year Manny Gamble would suffer a career ending heart condition. The football team also lost their assistant head coach during the summer. The Panthers found themselves facing all of this before the season had even started, and it was into such a climate that Robbie Schomaker assumed the role of interim head coach. However, coach Schomaker and the rest of the team were ready to face the challenge. “A lot of credit could be given to the senior class. They were really built and trained for adversity, and they've responded extremely well,” said coach Schomaker. In fact, the Panthers have responded so well that they stand undefeated with two games left in the regular season. The mental toughness of this team can easily be seen by the numerous victories the Panthers have been able to pull out of several incredibly close games.
