Throughout his time at Permian, Easton Hernandez has proved himself to be a versatile athlete for the Panthers.
The senior, a multi-sport standout, exemplified that in last week’s regular season finale against Midland Lee.
Hernandez, MOJO’s starting quarterback, accounted for five touchdowns. He did so with some variety – 1 passing, 3 rushing, and 1 receiving.
With that performance, he became the first player for Permian to record a passing, rushing, and receiving touchdown since 1976.
That year, Curtis Pittman accomplished the feat in a game against Roswell (NM).
Permian and Hernandez will look to continue their momentum in their first playoff game against El Paso Franklin.
The Cougars defeated MOJO 49-28 in week two of the regular season (Hernandez did not play in that game).
Kickoff for Friday’s contest at Ratliff Stadium is set for 7:00 p.m.
