Make no mistake based on Chapman’s  second-round playoff exit in 2020. 

The Panthers were undeniably one of the best three or four teams in Class 3A, and had it not been for the buzzsaw that was Daniel last fall, maybe coach Harris Cabaniss’ team would have had a different end result. Even with three big-time departures from the Class of 2021, Chapman will very likely spend the majority of of the upcoming season among the top of the state rankings again and have every shot of even more playoff success.

A big reason why is plenty of returning offensive firepower that all has a chance at a spot in the the NCAA Division-II (or higher) ranks.

Quarterback Drew Settle (6-foot-3, 175 pounds) threw for 1,651 yards and 18 touchdowns in eight games last fall. He completed 62 percent of his passes and was picked off just four times. The true pocket passer certainly has some high-end targets.

Receivers D.J. Black (6-foot-1, 170 pounds), Walt Waddell (6-foot-5, 200 pounds) and Tim McClurkin (6-foot, 170 pounds) area high-school quarterback’s dream trio. They each had at least 29 receptions, combined for 95 total and hauled in 1,380 yards and 17 touchdowns.
