Spring football: Dwyer’s youth shows in loss


The team that Dwyer will field next fall will be young and lacking much varsity game experience, and it showed Thursday night in the Panthers’ 30-10 loss to visiting Miami-Dr. Krop in a spring matchup at Blum Stadium.

Aside from one big play that resulted in a touchdown in the first quarter, Dwyer’s offense never found any rhythm while alternating quarterbacks throughout the game. The contest also was marred by several penalties that slowed the pace of the game.

Dwyer also lost two fumbles, had two punts blocked by Dr. Krop, which also scored two safeties on poor snaps from center.

All in all, it was not the way Dwyer coach Jack Daniels would have liked to close out spring practices.

“We had a really good spring,” Daniels said of the past three weeks of practices. “But we graduated 37 seniors (from last year’s team). We’ve got a bunch of young guys. It’s a great group of kids, but they need game experience. That’s what this game is for.”

An interception by Seth Verilus stopped a Dr. Krop drive deep in Dwyer territory and set up the Panthers’ only touchdown of the game. Jamari Gaines snagged a pass in the flat from quarterback Paul Whitely and weaved his way 40 yards for the touchdown midway through the first quarter to give Dwyer a 7-0 lead.

Dwyer’s defense came up with some big plays, but the Panthers had no answer for Dr. Krop running back Lawrence Papillon, who scored four touchdowns, including an 82-yard punt return. Papillon also scored on runs of 50, 1 and 5 yards.

Dwyer’s other points came on a 27-yard field goal by Nick St. Amand in the fourth quarter after Dr. Krop had scored 28 unanswered points.

Daniels said four quarterbacks competed during spring drills, but it’s still up in the air who will earn the starting job come this fall.

“They haven’t really separated themselves,” Daniels said.
