Ridgeview’s summer plans: Remain connected, bonded

ORANGE PARK – It’s a bond like no other.

As the Ridgeview Panthers embark on the 2023-2024 season, the focus for the team is to keep the bond between them on and off the field.

One of the senior edge rushers, Hunter Creech’s main focus during the summer is “to be connected to the team and to really bond with each other over the summer and get bigger and stronger to be able to play Friday night.”

Flipping to the opposite side of the ball, senior running back Rayhn Hutchinson is coming off a solid junior season with more than 400 rushing yards on offense and defensively having more than 50 tackles.

Rayhn looks to have more looks toward a 1,000-yard season.

The Panthers’ spring game was shorted due to a running clock, but the team still caught a glimpse of the talent they have in store.”

“A lot of young wide receivers had to step up like Micah Burdetsky, Smith, Deshun Green, and Christan Felder,” said coach Bryan Arnette. Played in a jamboree style, Ridgeview faced Keystone Heights in the first half and Santa Fe second. Keystone won the half, 8-0, but the Panthers earned a 14-14 tie with Sante Fe.

“Our potential is maximized when our guys play for each other,” Arnette said.

With the 24 class leading the way with guys like Jak Jones, JJ Moore, Hunter Creech, and Rayhn Hutchinson, Ridgeview is in good hands. The 25 class with guys like Alex Fennell, Wain Sulph and Gavin Huey “and the Views” future also looks bright.
