In his first two games of the 2015 season, senior quarterback Isaac Stiebeling and the Fort Wayne Snider Panthers would face two of the top football recruits in the nation. In week one action, the Panthers annihilated the Wayne Generals and the number one prospect in the state in Michigan State recruit Auston Robertson. Robertson and the General’s defense were left frustrated Friday night by the offensive attack of Stiebeling and company. The Panthers went on to route the Generals in a 49-0 victory.
The Panthers bolster as many weapons as any team in the state. Led by Eastern Michigan recruit, quarterback Isaac Stiebeling. Add a pair of division one recruits at receiver in senior Malik Bramley and junior Mac Hippenhammer, you have a deadly combination. Senior David Turner, a speedy receiver is no slouch and is garnering college attention as well. The ground attack features a pair of aces in senior running back Dominick Smith and junior running back Money Woods, who is considered to be one of the top recruits at his position in the state.
Stiebeling dismantled crosstown foe Bishop Luers last Friday, throwing for 298 yards and 4 touchdowns. He also added a rushing touchdown against a Luers team that featured division one prospects in Ohio State recruit Austin Mack and quarterback Noah Wezensky, who is slated to sign with Miami Ohio in February. Still, the Snider Panthers went on attack and handed the Knights a 55-27 loss.
It’s safe to say the Fort Wayne Snider Panthers are an early favorite to reach Lucas Oil out of the North section of the state tournament. With 104 points in the first 2 games, Stiebeling and company will be lighting up scoreboards all season long.
