Centreville Wildcats
   Head Coach: Gerry Pannoni, second year.
   2007 Record: 6-5 overall, 3-3 Concorde District (lost in
first round of Div. 6 playoffs)
   Returning Starters: seven offense, four defense
   Key Losses: RB/DB Darryl Hamilton; LB Donnell Carpen-

   Top Returners: OT Luke Bowanko, Sr., 6-6, 270; QB David

Brandon Carpenter, Sr., 6-0, 180; TE Zack Glatter, Sr., 6-5, 250;
   Must win: Week Four, Sept. 19 at Herndon
   Fun Fact: Centreville’s defense only allowed 112 points all season, the lowest in the
Northern Region. Heading into the ninth game of the season, the Wildcats only relin-
quished a gaudy 5.4 points per game.
   Aspect to Watch: Centreville had a solid season in coach Gerry Pannoni’s first sea-
son, but was overshadowed by Westfield’s undefeated season. The Wildcats return a
senior quarterback,
along with offensive
stalwart         Luke
Bowanko, but inex-
perience at wide re-
ceiver and in the sec-
ondary could be po-
tential snags. The
season         opener
against West Potomac
will be a huge litmus
test.
