25 Teams in 25 Days: Pass Christian Pirates

- the 19th school, on news 25's 2- teams in 25 days... is less tha- 24 -- - - - - or 25 -- hours away... from - hitting somebody else.- on jamboree eve... pass - christian can't get year 1 of - the - blake pennock era started soon- enough... coming off last year'- disappointing one-win season.

- and that's not gonna cut it for- the pirates, in 20-19... who- look- to do what no pass team... has- ever done before.

- - and now... news 25's 25 teams i- 25- days... sponsored by bienville- orthopedics.- nat ---> "ready, set, go!

Got t move!

Got to move, d-line!

Turn- around!

Turn around!"

"we won five games, went to the playoffs, hosted a playoff game- here.

And then next - season, we thought we were goin- to be going down the same path,- and it just went- downhill from there."

About this same time, last- year... life was good, at pass- - - - christian.

Coming off just thei- second home playoff game, in- school- history... the pirates picked u- right where they left off, in - 20-18...- with a crazy week 1 road- victory, at long beach... in th- oyster bowl.- "things were looking up, and then it just went all downhill.- - - - crashed."

"i think the main problem was we focused on that- one game.

That one- game, we just went for it.

And- then after that, we just lost - our focus for the rest of the - season."

Nine games later... the pirates- were staring dead in- the face, at a 1-9 season...- their worst showing, since- 20-13.- this year... pass christian has- a clean slate, under first-year- head coach blake pennock... who- - - - says the program... is far from- a sinking ship.

- "i've told this to people in th past.

I don't really feel like- we're taking over a 1-9 - program.

And coming from a- mindset of hoping we can do it- to expecting to do it.

And- that's the hardest thing to - change, probably most times it'- - - - the last thing to change becaus- you have to see evidence of - that."

"when he came into the locker room, he from the first day tol- us that we're going to- be a winning team and we all- bought in to his program.

And - we've all seen the- changes."

The biggest change pass - christian is striving to- make... is in the month of- november.

- believe it or not... the pirate- have never even gotten a- taste...- of the second round.- "just getting to the playoffs i a big thing around here.

But in- the pass christian- history, we have never won a- playoff game, so that's our mai- goal."

"it does need to change.

It absolutely needs to change.

Thi- place has the potential - to be successful and we have th- opportunity i think now to- hopefully change- that."

One step at a time, for the - - - - pass... who first needs to pump- the brakes, on that nine-game - losing streak.- after that... this year's - 17-member senior class, of 20-2- -- and- beyond -- has the chance to mak- - - - its own traditions... starting- with the grind... and the chase- nat ---> "grind on three, chase on six.

One, two three, grind!- four, five, six, chase!"

"you just look at the end of th road.

You see a prize, you're - going to chase it.- you're going to grind for it."

"the grind and the chase, it's literally just about we have a- goal.

And we're trying to - chase that goal.

We're trying t- chase a playoff win, alright?

- and those things, you - can't just speak those things - into existence.

You have to put- the work in, and that's - where the grind comes in.

And w- just want to try to make sure - we're reminded- everyday that we we have a goal- that we're trying to chase and- that we're going to put - in the work and we're going to- grind to get us to that goal."

- the pirates open up their 20-19- - - - campaign with long beach, yet - again... on august 23rd.- as for tomorrow... pass - christian travels to- gautier, for its jamboree...- slated
