POTENTIAL EXPECTATIONS:
Expectations are always high for the Panthers and 2020 will not be any different.  Their schedule and conference should prepare them for anything they may see in the post-season.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
There is talent.  There is culture.  There is  a commitment to how the Panthers will prepare and play.  2020 will be a fun year to watch as several of the Panthers top talents are younger.  The transition of roles from one year to another can be tricky but is typically handled with ease by an experienced coaching staff.

QUOTE FROM THE COACH:
“Expectations are always high here at Providence. If we can keep things simple and compete it should be an exciting year.”
