Members of Sam Mills’ family to bang ‘Keep Pounding’ drum Sunday

Members of former Carolina Panthers linebacker Sam Mills’ family will be in attendance to bang the Keep Pounding drum before Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Mills, who played linebacker for the Panthers from 1995-1997, coined the “Keep Pounding” phrase that has become the motto for the team when he used it in a speech before a 2003 playoff game.

Mills died of cancer in 2005.

Two of Mills’ four children will bang the drum. Sam Mills III, who is an assistant defensive line coach for the Panthers, won’t participate because he’ll be in the coaches’ box before the game.
