Replacing Ja'Quinden Jackson
and Chris Thompson Jr.
is near impossible but the Panthers bring back a loaded roster that features some of the best talent in the state. They were scheduled to face No. 6 St. Thomas Aquinas (Fla.) at a neutral site in late August but that game got canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. They will now face Houston Westfield to open the 2020 season.
