RAINY WEATHER NOT TO DAMPEN SPIRITS
The annual end of Spring Training games were held under rainy conditions at Ratliff Stadium.  The Junior Varsity started the evening with Team White enjoying a 12-0 lead at the half.  After heavy rains slowed, Team Black found themselves on the short end of a 28-0 shutout.  The Varsity Black-White game followed.  In a much tighter game, the Black team led 7-0 at the half.  In the third quarter, the rains returned and again stifled both offensive passing games.  Steven Pipes only completed 2-of-12 passes for 5 yards and an interception, while  Landry Serrano and Austin Reynolds were 2-of-6 for 24 yards.  Serrano contributed carries of 13, 26 and 14 yards on the opening series of the game.  Felix Neboh capped off the 80-yard scoring drive from 11 yards out to put Black in front, 7-0.  In the third quarter, Eli Torres found the endzone on a 10-yard run to tie the score.  Running back Jamar Miles gave Team Black their winning score midway through the fourth quarter.

BALANCED ATTACK GIVES WHITE 26-8 EDGE
In the annual Black-White game [Sophomore Edition], Team White utilized turnovers and a steady dose of run - run - pass to defeat Team Black on the Permian campus Tuesday afternoon.  Michael Allen showed decent skills under center, while Josh Ward and Michael Molinar anchored the ground attack for the White team.  The Black team struggled on offense.  Even with the defense giving up 26 points, Xavier Jones and Matt Garza had solid outings as defensive ends.

TWO WEEKS DOWN, ONE TO GO
The Thursday scrimmages marked the coming end of two weeks of Spring workouts.  The coaching staff ran the varsity and junior varsity at an elevated pace.  Both the first and second offensive and defensive units were given various game time situations in the sessions.  Spring Training will conclude next week with the traditional Black-White games.

IT EVEN FEELS LIKE FOOTBALL
With a near record high temperature on Friday, Spring Training workouts on Saturday morning felt more like late-October football weather.  Heavy overcast skies and a stiff cool breeze welcomed the players and coaches to Day Two.  Spring in West Texas would normally set the stage for drills and mock plays in an 80 degree environment.  Most of the coaching staff and onlookers were dressed in short sleeves and shorts.  The morning session yielded to base blocking assignments, defensive coverages, and conditioning reps.  After an extended break, the afternoon session reconvened with more focus on the offensive backs.  Linemen were put through a series of more blocking drills.  One of Permian's strengths for '09 appears to be our linebackers and defensive backs.

GAINES READY FOR SPRING TRAINING
The name Gary Gaines
has been etched into the fabric of Mojo Football.  He made his first appearance on the Permian sideline as an assistant coach from 1979-81.  The 1980 team and staff  would claim the first of three state titles in the 80s.  Gaines returned in 1986-89 and claimed the third title belonging to the Panthers in that decade.  A 'Friday Night Lights' book and movie focused of the 1988 Texas state semi-finalist team in which Gaines coached. **Just don't believe everything you read.**  Coach Gaines and staff will begin molding the 2009 Mojo squad on May 1. The three week Spring Training sessions will conclude with the annual Black-White games on May 22 at Ratliff Stadium. The junior varsity teams will play on the Permian campus on May 19.  Kick-off at 4pm.

FIRST HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL MUSEUM  

The first ever virtual Permian High School football museum honors a history known the world over and has now opened to the internet community.  If you were a part of the early days of PHS (60s, 70s, or 80s), we would like for you to share your greatest memory with us for inclusion in the museum.  This includes the best game, road trips to Ratliff East, burning the Angry Orange candles in front of the Field House, the countless splinters from W.T. Barrett Stadium, or what it's like being a graduate of Permian High School... unless it's the Original, all you have is imitation.
