PLANO – Protect the ball; it’s something the Panthers must do.
It cost them last week during the 36-32 season opening loss to Duncanville on Aug. 26, and that’s not something head coach Joey McCullough wants to repeat this Friday at the Cotton Bowl, where PESH will battle Jesuit, starting at 5 p.m., in the Cotton Bowl Prep Showcase.
The Rangers, too, will be looking to get into the win column after falling 47-13 to DeSoto in their season opener.
“I see a team that is a physical team,” PESH head coach Joey McCullough said of the Rangers. “Their offensive line is good…They are going to do what they do. They don’t do a lot, but they do it well (on offense). Defensively, they are an odd defense (3-4), and they do a lot of things… They put a lot of pressure on you with a lot of different looks and stunts, and things like that. Here’s the thing with stunting, sometimes stunting sets you up for the big play.”
