Prior to Wednesday’s news of Pascagoula High School shifting to virtual learning, WLOX caught up with the Panther football team on how they hope to build off of last year’s run that ended just short of Jackson.
We’re still a little under two weeks from week one of the high school football season, but fall sports are well underway, and already a handful of South Mississippi high schools have moved to virtual learning.
Last year’s Gulfport team wasn’t the team South Mississippi has come to know. Their 23-game region winning streak came to a halt, and over half of their losses were by single digits. But that’s in the past, and the expectation this year is to get back to the standard.
Over the last two seasons, the St. Patrick Fighting Irish have won more games in consecutive years than any two consecutive years dating back to 2008-2009. The next step for the program entering 2021? Just keep pounding.
