Permian football has hit the halfway mark of the season, and the Panthers are in good shape so far. 

The varsity football team currently holds a record of 4-2, including a 55-44 win over rival Midland Lee. The team hopes to have a strong second half of the season as they prepare for the Texas division 6A playoffs. 

“We feel great about the season so far, but we know we have to improve,” varsity receiver Hunter Tate said. “We’re ready to grow and put in the work to have a strong performance come playoff time.”

Currently, the Panthers are ranked 50th by in the Texas division 6A standings and are ranked 118th overall in Texas. 

“I think there’s a good chance we shoot up the rankings before the start of playoffs,” junior Elijah Leos said. “Watching the games, the team is improving every game, and still has lots of potential.”
