The Permian Panthers will face a stiff test in Week Two, traveling to Abilene to take on the Cedar Hill Longhorns. Cedar Hill (1-1 after a 42-41 OT victory over Denton Guyer) has been a powerhouse program the past few years. The Longhorns won a state title in 2006, and attained the number one national ranking before falling to Abilene High in the 2009 state playoffs. The Longhorns are led on offense by QB Driphus Jackson. The 6’1” 205lb signal caller has been the starter since his sophomore year, and threw for 1,506 yards and 16 TDs last season. Jackson can also make big plays on the ground. WR Lovett Gibson (6’2”, 190lb, 4.5) provides a big target for the passing attack. The offensive line averages 263 lbs per man. On defense Cedar Hill is young but talented. CB Trendall Stevenson (5’10” 170lb 4.5) is one of only two returning starters on defense. Senior Corey Feagin is a 6’3” 240lb force at defensive tackle.
