Top Impact Player for Washington in 2017? Senior QB/Db Caleb Fisher. The Fisher family has had more than a few standouts at WCHS over the years. Caleb Fisher will be a multi-year and multi-positional starter again in 2017 and will lead the Panthers on both sides of the football. Fisher will also be asked to help bring along a talented yet young underclassmen group this fall.

Biggest Concern heading into 2017? The Panthers have talent on both sides of the football but admittedly they will need to make sure it's offensive line develops sooner rather than later this fall.

EDGYTIM's Way Too Early Take on the 2017 Washington Panthers?

The Panthers will no question be a team to pay close attention towards in Class 5A this season. Washington has a ton of talent, especially in it's 2019 class. If the 2019 group can come to play and contribute sooner rather than later, this team could become a state title threat in the new landscape (no Peoria/Montini/Naz/SHG) in Class 5A.

EDGYTIM's Way Too Early regular season record prediction for the Washington Panthers? 8-1/7-2
