ODESSA, TX -- As six-time state champions, the Odessa Permian Panthers not only have deep roots in West Texas as one of the most tradition-rich programs but in all of the Lone Star State. 

Of the many traditions associated with Mojo Football is the number of the quarterback. Although the numbers 20 and 25 are non-traditional football numbers for quarterbacks they are considered to be filled with tradition for Permian QB1s. 

Little Southwest Conference historian and Permian football play-by-play announcer Barry Sykes talks about how the numbers became part of the Permian program and the quarterbacks throughout the years that have worn the numbers and the lasting impact they left behind.
