Panther pride comes by size — Screaming and hollering at football games is not the only way to show your support for the Panthers as they prepare to march into the football playoffs.

Now Pauls Valley gridiron fans can wear that support and at the same time help out local school athletics.

The support comes in the form of shirts on sale this week with proceeds going to the Panther Athletic Club.

The club is offering black, long sleeve PV playoff shirts through Thursday, Nov. 1 at the junior high or high school.

“It's a cool shirt,” said Jill Foster.

“We want to get the excitement going and get people behind the boys while showing their Panther pride,” she said. “We're taking orders through Thursday.”

The only real question is what the shirts will look like.

A kind of general design for the shirts is set. However, the final design won't come until we know where the Panthers wind up in the district standings.

“We have a design for the shirt but it will be tweaked a little depending on the last game,” Foster said.

“We're wanting to see if they're district champs,” she said. “We're not exactly sure what the final design is going to be.”

The shirt's design has a Panther overlooking tombstones with the scores of this year's district games.

If Pauls Valley does wind up as the district champs that accomplishment will be added in time for the start of the playoffs on Friday, Nov. 9.

The price tag for the shirts is $18 with payment required when ordering. Those order forms are available from Karen Peters at the junior high and Tammy D at the high school.

Ordered shirts will then be available to be picked up a day or two before the start of the football playoffs.

Foster reminds fans this playoff shirt campaign will not only show their support but also help a good cause.

“This is for the Panther Athletic Club, which helps support all of Pauls Valley's athletics.”
