Parkview High parent Julius Eric Turner remembers the 2012-2013 season of the beloved Panthers football team, which made it to the quarterfinal round of the state championships.
On a picture perfect, cool Friday evening, I was standing in the end zone of The Big Orange Jungle at Parkview High School daydreaming and thinking back to six months ago when this journey began. I stood on the cool damp grass, motionless with my camera equipment packed away in my backpack looking as though I had never taken a photograph before. As the final seconds ticked away to the end of the 2012 football season, I began to reflect back on how wonderful it was to be on the sideline to take pictures of the Parkview football team, as well as have front row seats to see my son play every Friday night. Watching these kids grow up has been so exhilarating and exciting to witness. This year’s team was not just any Parkview Panther football…

Panthers' season to remember ends in the Class AAAAAA quarterfinals.
Parkview’s 2012 season came to an end with a 31-15 loss to Colquitt County in the Class AAAAAA football quarterfinals Friday, but head coach Cecil Flowe found no reason to complain. As difficult as the final outcome was, this was a season to remember for the Panthers (9-4), who endured several key injuries and kept plugging along to make a deep playoff run. The four-time state champions returned to football glory by knocking off Grayson when the Rams were ranked No. 1 in the nation. They soundly beat neighborhood rival Brookwood and came a whisker away of winning the Region 8-AAAAAA title. That’s not all. They won two overtime games on the road in the playoffs to reach the quarterfinals for the first time since 2005. They also advanced …

The Parkview Panthers football team won in overtime against the West Forsyth Wolverines.
Parkview’s final play in Friday’s 26-23 win over West Forsyth in the second round of the Class AAAAAA football playoffs didn’t go exactly the way it was drawn up. That may be a bit picky, considering it resulted in the game-winning touchdown. “Honestly, I was supposed to hand it off to Shaq [Vereen],” said Justis Rosser, who ran virtually untouched around the left end for a 15-yard TD on Parkview’s first play of the overtime. “I fumbled the snap. It was supposed to go to Shaq, but then we just played it out.” As they say, all’s well that ends well. Rosser’s run not only helped Parkview beat a very talented West Forsyth team, it propelled the Panthers (9-3) back into the state quarterfinals for the first time since 2005. The four-time state…
