"I could not be more thrilled on the outcome of our two weeks of summer camps!" Head Coach Matt Mumme said. "Our staff worked hard at getting the word out and that success showed up for sure. The 763 who attended is a tremendous number for us and really made the LaGrange College Football program much more visible."

This marks the ninth straight year the two teams have opened the season against each other. The Panthers will host Berry in their home opener at Callaway Stadium on Sept. 10.
