Birmingham-Southern College brothers help spark historic season for Panthers

The Division 3 Birmingham-Southern College football program historically hasn’t been something to talk about, but this season, the Panthers broke numerous records en route to their first 10-win season ever.

The program once disbanded in 1939, returned in 2007 after a 68-year hiatus. After the 2020 season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Panthers had its best season in program history, hosting and playing in an NCAA Championship Playoff game all for the first time.

Brothers Clay Youngblood ’22, Garrett Thrash ’24, Owen Phillips ’23, Luke DeFur ’23, Andrew Smith ’24, and Zion Thomas ’24 were all part of the ride that helped set a new standard for Panthers Football.

The historic season came to an end on November 27, losing 42-7 to Mary Hardin-Baylor in the second round of the playoffs.

It was the first season the program hosted and played in a playoff game, meaning it was the first time the team won a postseason contest.

Congratulations to the brothers on a historic season.
