Permian Lee Rivalry Continues with Playoffs Potentially at Stake

The MOJO and Rebels continue their historic rivalry with playoff hopes on the line for the Panthers.
Midland Lee has already clinched a playoff spot in 2013, something that gave the Rebels a sigh of relief after their 2012 collapse.

Permian is coming off a huge victory over Abilene Cooper, and will need a victory over Midland Lee if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Panthers are 3-3 in district play, tied for 4th with Midland High, but the Bulldogs have the tie breaker since they defeated Permian earlier this season.

First year MOJO head coach knows the Rebels will be tough to beat, saying "I tell you Lee has a great football team there is absolutely no doubt about that. They do a great job throwing the football, and they do a great job running the football. I think they have a fantastic offense and they do a great job up front on the offensive line, and we'll have our hands full trying to get them stopped."

For the Rebels, head coach James Morton wants to keep the momentum swinging in favor of his team and doesn't see Lee slowing down or resting any time soon. When asked about the MOJO, Morton said "I think we're excited about playing Permian. We've heard for a long time how intense they are and how hard they play from day one and since they started their new program. I know our kids and our coaches are excited about matching that intensity and so we're looking forward to it."
