ODESSA, Tx – Permian will finally kick off its long-awaited football season this Thursday.
The Panthers will host Abilene Cooper at Ratliff Stadium. Normally, Thursday night games give teams less time to prepare for the game. However, head coach Jeff Ellison said that is not the case since Permian has had weeks to prepare for the match-up.
Permian hit the field last week for a scrimmage, and Ellison said while the team was rusty, they were ready to practice this week and correct any mistakes. He said Abilene Cooper brings an experience team to the field this Thursday.
Game-time is set for 7 p.m. Tickets will be available to season ticket holders and parents on Tuesday and general admission tickets go on sale Wednesday. Tickets can be purchased at the Ratliff Stadium ticket office.
