Any good sports section should be open to public service announcements so the following is on behalf of Platt football coach Jason Bruenn, healing his staff and his Panthers. It is directed primarily at the Platt family but at city fans should also take heed.

“It’s tough coming from Platt. You don’t get a lot of respect. You don’t get a lot of respect from around the state period,” Bruenn said, after the Panthers excelled at every facet of the game in trouncing upset-minded Bristol Eastern, 52-17, Friday night as the Lancers tried desperately to win the first game on their recently refurbished on-campus facility.

“I can’t speak for Maloney but we’ve got some good players and we saw some good things tonight.”

David Spence may be little, but he’s come up big for the St. Marcellinus Spirit lately.

The Grade 11 runnngback has looked strong as the Spirit’s starter and he hopes he has one more good game in him on Thursday, Nov. 17, when the Spirit take on the St. Marguerite d’Youville Panthers in the Region of Peel Secondary School Athletic Association (ROPSSAA) senior Tier 1 football final.



Last season, the Carolina Panthers lost one regular-season game. This season, the Panthers have won one game.

There’s only one thing that will turn Carolina’s season around, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said.

“We don’t need no messages,” Newton said. “We’re out of messages. We’re out of things that need to be said. We’re out of big rah-rah speeches. Everybody’s saying, ‘Believe.’ Listen, we’ve got to win. That’s it.”




Case Keenum and the offense were booed several times and fans at the Coliseum called for rookie quarterback Jared Goff in a 13-10 loss that extended the Rams losing streak to four games and dropped their record to 3-5.

A week after complaining that officials were not calling penalties for illegal hits against him in the pocket, ambulance Newton completed 20 of 32 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown as the Panthers improved to 3-5.

Keenum completed 27 of 46 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown, with an interception.




(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — The Carolina Panthers’ rookie class traded their football uniforms Tuesday for Halloween costumes to visit families at a local children’s hospital.

The 11 members of the Panthers’ rookie class spent nearly two hours visiting kids one-on-one and partaking in Halloween traditions like pumpkin carving with patients at the Levine Children’s Hospital at the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.




CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Cornerback Josh Norman didn’t hold back when he was asked about how the Carolina Panthers, who rescinded his franchise tag in April, allowed 300 yards receiving to Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones in a 48-33 loss Sunday.

“You get what you pay for,” Norman said Monday on ESPN’s The Dan Le Batard Show.

Norman, now a member of the Washington Redskins, has come up in several interviews involving Carolina players and coaches over the past 24 hours because of Jones’ performance.

Norman prided himself the past two seasons on holding Jones in check. He held Jones to a combined 10 catches for 107 yards and 0 touchdowns in 2014, when Jones averaged 99.5 yards receiving per game.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera indicated on Thursday that if quarterback Cam Newton is cleared from the concussion protocol he will play Monday night against Tampa Bay.

Rivera said he won’t know the status of the reigning NFL MVP until later in the week.

“I’m going to listen to exactly what I’m told,” said Rivera, whose team is part of a probe by the NFL and NFLPA into how the protocol was followed when Newton was not taken out of the opener after taking several hits to the helmet.

“That’s the thing I want everybody to understand. I’m going to do exactly what the doctors, the professionals, the people that study this, tell me. Then I’m going to look to the young man. I’m going to treat him exactly like I treated Luke Kuechly [last season].”

That was Rivera’s response when asked if he would consider holding Newton out even if cleared. In 2014, Rivera did not play the quarterback in the opener against Tampa Bay even though Newton wanted to play a few weeks after receiving fractured ribs in a preseason game.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — With an offensive outburst that featured great balance, the Tennessee Titans have arrived at midseason with a 4-4 record thanks to a 36-22 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night.

Not bad for a team that won only three games all of 2015 and just five in 2014 and 2015 combined.

Bruising running back DeMarco Murray had a big night, with 21 carries for 123 yards and a touchdown. The headliner of the Titans smashmouth offense has surpassed his 2015 totals with Philadelphia in those categories in half a season in Nashville.

And a crisp Marcus Mariota threw two touchdown passes, becoming the first Titans quarterback to throw multiple touchdowns in four consecutive games since Kerry Collins way back in 2010. Mariota finished 18-of-22 for 270 yards, without an interception or a sack.

As they recover and enjoy a mini-bye, the Titans could hold a share of first place in the AFC South come Sunday night, though they wouldn’t hold a tiebreaker with Indianapolis or Houston.

The division-leading Texans (4-3) host the Lions on Sunday; the 3-4 Colts host the Chiefs.

“There’s a pack here right now at this stage of the year with a lot of teams around [the same] with wins and losses,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said. “And we’re going to try to stay in it and come out of this pack at some point. We need to stay in it and we did that.”
