The Mehlville Junior Panthers Football and Cheer Organization is a team that functions to give children the opportunity to play football and cheer for grades 5th-8th grade. Our workers are volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to make this organization one of the best in the St. Louis County area. The coaching staff for both cheer and football consist of parents of players, proud Mehlville Alum who are coming back to aid the future of the Panther name and others from around the area looking to teach today's youth about football and cheer.
