 2016 Preview 

       Marengo completed the 2015 season with a 7-5 record. With their 4-2 region record and a third place finish in Class 1A region one, the Panthers earned a spot in the playoffs in 2015. Marengo reached the second round of the playoffs before falling to Maplesville by a score of 50-6.

       The Panthers won as many games as in any season since 2008.

       Since 2010, Marengo has gone a combined 25-39. Their 39.0% winning percentage ranks 36th in Class 1A over the past six seasons.

       Over the past 25 seasons, Marengo has managed to compile a record of 130-136. Their 49.0% winning percentage ranks 27th in Class 1A and 199th in the AHSAA.

       The Panthers are led by head coach Eberne Myrthil who is entering his third season at the helm. He has compiled a record of 13-9 over the past two seasons at Marengo. Under his direction the Panthers have qualified for the playoffs once. They have not won a region crown with Coach Myrthil.

       Coach Myrthil's overall record as a head football coach in four season stands at 20-22 (47.6%). Over the course of his career, Coach Myrthil's teams have qualified for the playoffs a total of one time .

       The Marengo Panthers will play in Class 1A region one during the 2016 season.

       The Panthers will be in the mix for one of the last two playoff spots in region one this season. Marengo simply does not have the numbers to be competitive on the football field at this time. With just 58 students, the Panthers are one of the smallest schools playing the game and have little chance of being successful.

      Quarterback Cordarius Pritchett returns for his senior season after completing 110 of 200 passes for 1,668 yards and 19 touchdowns as a junior last season. He also rushed for another 606 yards and 14 scores.

      Michael Kennedy returns after catching 45 passes for 749 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2015.

       The Panthers open the 2016 season at home against non-region opponent Choctaw County on Friday, August 26 at Panther Stadium. Last year the Choctaw County Tigers finished with an overall record of 4-6 and in sixth place in Class 2A region one. The Tigers closed out the regular season with a loss to Millry by a score of 20-18.

       Marengo and Choctaw County have met a total of 6 times on the football field. The Panthers have a 4-2-0 record against the Tigers. They last met in 2015 with Choctaw County winning by a score of 36-30.

       Marengo returns 1A All-State Senior athlete Cordarius Pritchett. He was named to the first team last season. The Panthers also return Junior defensive lineman DeAngelos Crispin. He was named to the first team. The Panthers also return Junior receiver Michael Kennedy. He was named to the first team.
