Team chemistry will be a big focus for Little Miami this year as they make another run at the playoffs. The Panthers have an opportunity to make the playoffs for the fifth straight year, a feat many have become used to after the 26-year postseason drought was ended in 2018.

Little Miami is on the younger side looking to make an impact in the field with grit and hard work. “We have a lot of talent and our team will be young. We will compete in everything we do giving relentless effort, being mentality tough, and playing together as a team,” says head coach Caleb Jones. The fourth-year coach looks to improve upon his 15-17 record behind a young core that can make some noise in the ECC.

The Panthers will kick off their 2022 campaign at Mount Healthy on Thursday, August 18th.

Division II, Region 8
2021 RECORD:  2-9, 1-7 ECC
COACH: Caleb Jones (15-17 at Little Miami, three years; 15-17 overall)

Aidan Whittington, Sr, OL – A towering 6-foot-6, 290-pound force of nature will give his young quarterback plenty of time to work with in the pocket.


Jayden Wayne, Sr, WR – An experienced senior looking to be a leader on the defensive side of the ball. As a junior Wayne recorded 49 total tackles bringing his career total to 105 total tackles.

Grant Maupin, Sr, WR/DB – In his junior year the wide receiver collected 12 receptions totaling 195 yards and a touchdown while coming up with an interception on defense. He can also be a threat to throw the ball as he has experience under center putting up a 57.1% completion rate last year.

Sam Dooley, Sr, OL – A returning starter on the o-line. The 6-foot-3, 285-pound Dooley is a leader up front. He has an offer from Centre College.
