EUGENE, Ore.--After a statement 31-14 win over Sheldon, the South Medford Panthers are Southwest Conference champions for the second straight year.

It was a winner-take-all game in NewsWatch 12's Game of the Week, and in a match that featured numerous Division I-bound collegiate players, South Medford running back/linebacker Jaylin Parnell stole the show.

Parnell, who has not received any DI offers, rushed for 245 yards and a pair of touchdowns and added a pick-6. After the game, Panthers' head coach Bill Singler told Hayes Gardner of The Oregonian that Parnell "is the most underrated player in the state."

Panther wideout Chase Cota, who is scheduled to make his official visit to Alabama this weekend, also added a touchdown grab.

South Medford (7-1, 5-0) closes its season against South Eugene at Spiegelberg Stadium (1-6, 0-5) with a chance to extend its winning streak to seven heading into the playoffs. A win would also mean an undefeated run through league for the second year in a row for the Panthers.
