Fresh off their Super Bowl 50 loss to the Denver Broncos, the Carolina Pathers are ready to defend their NFC championship in the hopes of taking another trip to the world’s biggest stage.
Training camp kicked off a few weeks ago, and the Panthers are already making history. Yesterday, they became the first team in NFL history to practice alongside a high school team.
As part of the NFL’s Play 60 campaign, the Panthers engaged in warm-ups with the Spartanburg High School Vikings at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Surely it’s an unforgettable experience for these kids to be able to practice alongside last year’s NFC champs. Panthers players offered advice and also just socialized with the kids, as Thomas Davis even encouraged them to trash talk to Cam Newton – you can imagine how that probably went.
For the Panthers, they can only hope this will propel them back to the Super Bowl.
