THE HISTORY

The youth of Pontiac were participants in the Lakeland Lakers Youth Football Association of Sylvan Lake until 1987 at which time the Lakers dissolved their franchise. Louis Laster was determined to continue to provide activities for Pontiac’s youth. In 1988 he established the Pontiac Panthers Youth Football Association along with several coaches which included; Curtis Nash, Jerome Chaumley, Perry Humphrey, Kenneth McClendon, and Valorie Cottingham as the cheerleader’s coach.

The Executive Board included: Louis Laster, President; Curtis Nash, Vice President; Sandra Rolle, Secretary; and Mary Laster,Treasurer. Those who contributed monetary gifts to start the Franchise were lifetime members Hank Thomas, Jerome Chaumley, Louis and Mary Laster. The Panthers were accepted in the Suburban Youth Football Conference in 1988 until 2005. They enjoyed a 5 year tenure in the Northern Youth Football League (NYFL) from 2005-2010, prior to this year  becoming a part of the newly formed Michigan Youth Football and Cheer Conference (MYFCC) this year.
