Junior running back Alvin Bryant hits the corner vs. Bloomingdale (2014)
EDIT: Varsity Football schedule is set. Please see the schedule on the right.
The 2015 Varsity Football schedule is virtually complete and the Panthers will have their work cut out for them as a six-game stretch to start the season is easily the most difficult slate in school history, and that's exactly the way the coaches want it. While not all locations for the games have been determined just yet, several games, including District contests, have been. DP (12-1 in 2014) will open up with the Kickoff Classic August 21st at home against Jones, the first time the Panthers have played the Tigers in a varsity game since 1998. Week one features Wekiva (8-3) on 8/28 followed by Lake Mary (11-2) on 9/4, West Orange (11-1) in week three on 9/11, Apopka (11-4, State Champions) on 9/18, at home against Daytona Beach Mainland (13-1, State Semifinalist) in week five on 9/26, and at Oak Ridge (9-2) on 10/2. After an open week DP heads to Freedom 10/16, returns home against Olympia 10/23 for Homecoming, followed by Senior Night against Cypress Creek 10/30 and the season finale against Evans 11/6. A spring game opponent has yet to be determined. The final schedule, including JV and Freshmen games, will be posted on PantherZone upon completion.
