Minter’s Playoff Connection

Campbell Football head coach Mike Minter knows a thing or two about postseason football in the state of North Carolina.

Minter, a team captain from the Panthers Super Bowl XXXVIII squad, spoke with WCCB in Charlotte comparing his success during the 2003 season with the current No. 1 seed in the NFC (15-1), who host the No. 6 seed, Seattle Seahawks, in the Divisional Round next Saturday at Bank of America Stadium.


At the time of his retirement in 2006, Mike Minter held Panthers franchise records for starts (141), consecutive starts (94), fumble recoveries (11) and interceptions returned for touchdowns (4).

The former Panthers standout led his team to the promised land defeating the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game before recording a career-high 18 tackles in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots while playing through a broken foot that he suffered during the third quarter.
