George Panos is one of six offensive linemen in the 2014 class, as head coach Gary Andersen and offensive line coach T.J. Woods continue to reload the offensive line with a very talented bunch. Panos helped lead Hartland Arrowhead to consecutive state championships, and the future looks bright for the son of former Wisconsin walk-on and captain Joe Panos.
