How come every year the Mojo QB is always some goofy 20 something number instead of something between 1-19 like most QBs? I've seen this by other players and teams but it seems year in and year out Permian's QB is a 20 number. Just wondering.

They don't learn to count to ten until college. :D

It's a tradition. The Permian QB usually wears #20 or #25.

Is it similar to the Houston Texans having a tradition of the quarterback always being Number 8?

i believe back in the wing t days, the qb was the 2 back, so he always wore the 20, or 25 number. i think it just turned into a tradition. when mills came in he changed all the numbers. i believe coach smith went back to the permian traditions as far as the numbers.

Thank you, I've always wondered why yall's QB wasn't a normal number for his position.

I've heard that the QB wears 20 on even # years and 25 on odd # years. Not sure if that is correct though.

mm21 is correct and the 20/25 became a tradition staple during the gene mayfield era. jim cashion issued backfield jerseys 20 through 39 in 1964. mayfield designated the qb number in '65. the rest is history.

Have the Texans been around long enough to have a tradition?

for many years(until the 80's), plano never had any numbers lower than 20. therefore, the qb had to be in the 20's. no set number, however.

I don't believe the odd number/odd year is correct. A QB that holds the position two years wouldn't change his # from odd to even. Would he?

For example, Mike Winchell, who was a 2 year starter. Or Tate Smith. Also remember Heath Moody wore #22 when he was the QB. More than likely our QB for 08 will wear #28, unless they change his number. ;)

I guess the guys on the radio report false information.

Your right about that. Coming from a permian radio station, one would tend to believe them.

They weren't necessarily wrong, just not 100% correct. :D

For the most part, it has turned out that the QB had 20 on even years and 25 on odd years. It just hasn't always followed the pattern.

I remember going out to Ratliff that same year in 1989, about 2-3 weeks earlier, to watch my brother's Trimble Tech team get ran out of the stadium by Stony Case, Chris Comer and Lloyd Hill. But, I believe the band intimidated me more than the actual Permian football team.

Without a doubt, the Permian band was a part of the "Mojo Package". I think we won 49-6 against TT that year. I'll always remember the time the PHS band came out of the tunnel at Texas Stadium. It was during pre-game and everyone on the field just stopped what they were doing in awe of this boisterous massive band coming out. Maybe one day we will get back to that.

They certainly were a massive and boisterous unit in Abilene for the playoff game against Trinity. You could feel the excitement when they marched in front of the stands before the game. Even though the game was not going Permian's way, the band just kept getting louder and louder. :notworthy

If you thought this past year was impressive, man you should have seen them perform back back in the "gravy years". Now, that was something to watch and hear.

The song is now known as Hawaii 6-0. The writer resisted at first but he finally came around. :D

thanks a bunch, man.

I'm glad if even our fans can't be satisfied with us, we impressed someone.
