Panchyshyn to continue football career at Maryville College

Polk County senior Devin Panchyshyn has been a member of the Wolverine varsity throughout his four seasons.

Polk County senior lineman Devin Panchyshyn has verbally committed to play football at Maryville College.

Maryville is a Division III program that competes in the USA South Athletic Conference along with schools such as Brevard College and Methodist College. The Scots finished 5-5 last season after posting back-to-back eight-win seasons in 2015 and 2016.

A three-time all-Western Highlands Conference performer, Panchyshyn proved a mainstay on Polk County’s offensive and defensive lines throughout his career.

Polk County head coach Bruce Ollis said a ceremony is planned for Panchyshyn and other potential college-bound players once all destinations are determined.
