    Default Question for Permian fans.

    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.

    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.

    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.
    the harder i work, the luckier i get to pay more taxes so someone unluckier than me doesn't have to work so hard
    No one needs luck or even best wishes when all are pulling in the same direction

    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?

    Ok, that's just what I had heard.
