Darrell was a fine servant of the Claremont Football Club in a club record 274 league games between 1979 and 1986 and from 1990 to 1995. He spent the 1987-8-9 seasons with SANFL club Woodville. Originally from Albany Royals, he played as a wingman for much of his career before converting into a fine, rebound defender. A triple fairest and best award winner with the Tigers, Panizza also represented the state with distinction six times. He was a member of Claremont’s Grand Final winning teams of 1981, 1991 and 1993, and coached the Tigers to their most recent flag in 1996. He later returned home to Albany to coach his original club, Royals.
