A day after the sale of the Carolina Panthers to hedge fund manager David Tepper became officially official, Tepper was introduced as the new owner in his very first press conference. Tepper shared a number of interesting tidbits in his appearance — including the fact that he’s contractually obligated to keep the statue of former owner Jerry Richardson outside of Bank of America Stadium — but perhaps the funnest thing he mentioned was his interest in hosting high school football championships in the future. Currently, the ACC schools have been taking turns hosting a couple high school football championships each season, but giving North Carolina kids the chance to play in an NFL stadium could be pretty cool. We’re all about this idea, but like we said yesterday … here’s hoping Tepper’s championship dreams stretch a little beyond Friday night lights.
