Panthers WR Laviska Shenault gets new uniform number

·1 min read

Carolina Panthers punter Johnny Hekker has already changed uniform numbers for a new, incoming teammate this summer—going from No. 6 to No. 10 for quarterback Baker Mayfield. So will he be doing the same for Laviska Shenault, who wore No. 10 with the Jacksonville Jaguars?

Nope. There will be no third number for Hekker, which may have been some sort of record for a player that hadn’t even recorded a snap with his team yet.

Instead, Shenault will be taking up the No. 15.

Shenault’s new digits are, perhaps, a callback to his high school career. The DeSoto, Texas native attended DeSoto High School, where he donned No. 2 and No. 15 for the Eagles.

As far as who has worn No. 15 for the Panthers, the list of past occupants isn’t exactly a prodigious one:

  • WR Joe Adams (2012)

  • WR Marvin McNutt (2013)

  • WR Chris Hogan (2019)

  • TE/QB Tommy Stevens (2020)

  • WR Seth Roberts (2020)

  • CB CJ Henderson (2021)

Henderson, by the way, has since switched to a chef’s kiss of an aesthetic  with No. 24.
