League: Principals’ Athletic Conference.

Coach: Jim France, 42nd season at Manchester, 43rd overall.

Coach’s record: 349-90-3 at Manchester, 352-97-3 overall.

2012 record: 8-4, 6-1.

Players to watch: Dakota Craig, Sr. S; Jake Hanzel, Sr. OT/DT; Aaron Hoxworth, Sr. WR; Austin Klein, Sr. RB/DE; David Gresham, Sr. C; John Beavers, Sr. RB/LB; Jesse Winters, Sr. DE; Chandler Stahl, Sr. QB

Outlook: Quarterback Nick Peyakov is gone and France might now return to his offensive style of run first, run second and ask questions later. In Peyakov’s place is senior Chandler Stahl, who was a quarterback at the junior varsity level but moved to tight end for a year. France says the Panthers won’t be returning to the running game he used to operate with, but fans can expect that Manchester’s offense will be run heavy until Stahl gains some experience.
