The Permian Panthers are under new leadership with Blake Feldt taking over the reigns as head coach, and he's bringing back the old school to Panther football. Permian opens Week Zero on Friday night against El Paso Montwood from Ratliff Stadium. Coach Feldt is making sure his players bring speed, and lots of it, in 2013.
"I was pleased with the tempo," coach Feldt said. "Obviously it needs to get better. Fundamentally, I think we're a far, far way from where we really need to be and we'll see how much progress we make this week coming in to the first game. In many, many cases, it's been my experience your team improves drastically from your first scrimmage to the first game and we definitely need to do that, there's no doubt about that."
