Plano East FB

Plano East senior Daniel Fayombo (4) is congratulated by his teammates after scoring the first of his three touchdowns in Friday's 47-40 win over Naaman Forest.

MURPHY — Part of head coach Tony Benedetto's plan for rejuvenating the Plano East football program is cultivating an even-keeled mindset. That resolve has already shined through in both outings of the Panthers' 2022 season.

On Aug. 26, East mounted a fourth-quarter rally with a 93-yard, go-ahead touchdown drive to overtake Rowlett for a 31-27 victory. And on Friday, as Naaman Forest conjured a second wind with 13 consecutive points bridging the second and third quarters to seize a lead, the Panthers wasted no time mustering a counterattack of their own.
