Permian Prepping For Tascosa's Option Offense

After a forgettable 1-4 start, the Permian Panthers are looking ahead for a better half of the season, and it starts with a team in a similar position against the Tascosa Rebels.
The 1-4 Permian Panthers may not have had the season people envisioned at the beginning of the year, but they can't look back or make any excuses for their record. This week, they travel to Amarillo to take on the Tascosa Rebels -- a team who has a similar record at 1-3.

The MOJO look to stick with sophomore Trey Potter as their starting quarterback, which may come as a bit of a surprise due to him being benched last week against Midland after throwing two interceptions in the first half.

Switching to the other side of the ball, the Panthers defense faces a unique challenge against the Rebels flex bone option offense, and head coach Blake Feldt says that kind of system is tough to emulate in practice.

"The big problem is to simulate that during practice during the week for our defense especially at game-type speed, because it is so different," said Feldt. "You know, it's option football, therefore we gotta do a great job with our assignments on defense and it's just something that's new and it's different and that's what presents the biggest problem."
