Panthers announce Keep Pounding Game for Week 4 vs. Cardinals

Interactive fan elements include a Keep Pounding Fan Wall for fans to sign before the game.

Mills led the Panthers to the 1996 NFC Championship Game in just the franchise’s second season, and then became even more of an inspiration when he joined the coaching staff.

While fighting his own battle with cancer, he gave his “Keep Pounding” speech prior to a playoff game against the Cowboys, which was part of their run to Super Bowl XXXVIII.

Panthers assistant general manager Dan Morgan played for Mills, and they became close friends, but Morgan said the strength Mills gave to the team during his fight was real.

“Obviously it’s something you always remember, it’s imprinted on your mind,” Morgan said. “Sam didn’t want anyone to ever feel sorry for him. We knew what he was going through, but he never skipped a beat. I also remember how matter-of-fact it was, the way he said it. He was genuine, it was from the heart.

“You could tell how much it meant to him to be there in that moment. It was a little emotional, but not like you’d expect. I don’t think he ever wanted to be a big deal, but he definitely wanted to make sure he impacted people the right way.”
