The Fort Stockton High School Panthers released their 2019 varsity football schedule. Perhaps, the Panthers should adopt a "Road Warrior" theme for the upcoming season.
The team has just four home games while traveling for the remaining six games.
It is a flip from last season, when the Panthers had six home games – and won all six – in route to an 8-3 record and and third-place finish in district. The team lost in the first-round of the playoffs to Estacado.
Including a scrimmage at Del Rio, the Panthers will log about 2,000 miles in their team bus. The Panthers have a particularly quelling stretch of three road games, with non-district matchups against El Paso Riverside, San Angelo Lakeview and the district opener against Pecos.
The homecoming game will be Oct. 4 vs. Snyder.
The Panthers are currently competing in 7-on-7 passing leagues. The team hosted games June 11. They will travel to Iraan 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 18.
