A season after losing in the SWAC championship to Jackson State and losing their former head coach Eric Dooley to the Southern Jaguars, the Prairie View A&M University Football team is eager to make the SWAC fear the Panthers again. In his first year as head coach of the Panthers, Bubba McDowell wants to send a message to the SWAC and to all his players… you’re witnessing the birth of a DYNASTY. Many seem to forget that just a year ago PVAMU was in the SWAC championship game. Very similar to the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Buccaneers of the NFL who both lost their head coaches but elevated from within their coaching ranks, the Panthers have promoted Coach McDowell to the head coaching position. In our interview, he spoke about how he’s adjusting to the role and the unforeseen administrative duties that come along with the job. Coach McDowell also spoke about his teams goals and pressed on the desire he has to create a championship dynasty at PVAMU.
