IN a massive letdown for the team here at THEFOOTY.com, both of the High School footy teams we were following, have finished for the year. The Permian Panthers went down in their final game to the Abilene Eagles 42-14. Very disapointing season and it would appear from the comments from the fans of the Panthers, most criticism firmaly laid at the coaching and the conditioning of the team.
The Bob Jones Patriots, playing in Alabama 6A football, were tipped to threaten for State Honours this season, however fell badly at the first hurdle losing in week 1 to Clay-Chalkville Cougars 28-21. The Patriots led 21-7 at half-time, and were destined to win, however a committed Cougars team came back strongly in the second half to win. The Bob Jones team ranked 5 in the State, are now out of the playoffs after promising so much.
