PLAYOFF HISTORY: 2 years, 1-2. Last appearance, 1997.
OUTLOOK: With one year of Youngstown City Schools reorganization in the books, the Panthers have a new coach and a new home. The well-established Jim Vivo leads East in their first season at the new Rayen Stadium. The fresh digs should give the Panthers an added edge, especially with Rayfield Bell and Marquis Thomas returning as receivers and in the secondary. The lines are secured by Tra-Vail Scott, Lavonte Perry and Traylen Smith — all returning starters.
COACHING STAFF: Jim Vivo, head coach (1st season, 39-16 overall). Assistants: Jeff Bruno, Matt Zuppo, Nick Cantenno, Brandon Dotson, Dwayne Thompson, John Spencer.
