  • Mike Says: Coach Feldt comes in to try and revive the Panthers who have gone 15-17 over the past 3 seasons. Only 20 lettermen are coming back this year. Look for them to go 5-5 or 6-4 this year and get that 4th playoff spot. Abilene Cooper and Abilene will be the toughest challenges in the district.
  • Chris Says: A storied program and a darn good coach - this sounds like a great fit.  I am somewhat biased as I have know coach Feldt for quite a while, but that doesn't change the fact that he is a winner and his teams are winners.  Sure, Odessa Permian doesn't bring a lot of experience back, but come on - we're talking about the MOJO here!  These guys will be ready.  I expect the Panthers to notch a good 8 wins this season enroute as they climb back to a state ranking for next season.
