    I understand from some folks that on Friday during some scrimmage action the Lufkin O and D looked pretty good, even with Thomas not taking snaps just yet. Looks like maybe next week for him to get some work on the line. Everything is progressing smoothly. Kids were energized and up beat. Working to stay conditioned in this heat.

    It’s not the norm unless you’re a rival, Nac fan or fan from a top program from what I’ve seen.

    LUFKIN PANTHER FOOTBALL 2018

    That’s an understatement, but it goes both ways from what I’ve seen lol. Just trash talking. The North Shore game in 08, Longview in 2009 or 10, (about to be a few fights this year lol) 2014 and 2016, JT in 15 and last season and Nac a few years after they beat us twice and brought the whole city to lufkin was.....how do i say this...bad lmao. It was trash talking on both sides however. I honestly like sitting over there. It’s very entertaining. I used to be on the home side, fans in my honest opinion are more passionate on that side and the parents mostly sit over there. As for the throwing objects or whatever, I’ve seen it from the kids that are now sitting over there in the so-called student section throw stuff, but never before that. And it only happened twice.....from what I’ve seen. A JT fan last year was cussing and talking a lot of smack to teenagers and shockingly (sarcasm) they responded with words and a bottle being thrown his way and toward his family. The teens that were behind me wasn’t doing anything before that. The cops came and fixed that stuff very quickly though. It’s not even as close to as bad as it used to be. It was tough to say the least if you were from another town. Now, it’s only bad if you go there and start messing with those kids.....it’s more cops over there than it used to be, but it can still end up bad.

    Was thinking the same thing. Ralph Bean tells me things have improved over there over the years. 😎 Well, at least they are not throwing things. I have heard the taunting between certain opponents like Longview, Nacogdoches and JT can get entertaining. Wish we would have the visitor side for visitors only and Home side for Lufkin fans only. This is done in 90% of the other stadiums we play.

    I was disappointed to hear about that “playful banter” from LP fans. Hope that is not the norm. Kind of sounds like the “playful banter” that Lp fans receive at Longview. Any different?

    Well said. Although as a Lufkin season ticket holder for many years, I have never been on the Lufkin Visitor side for a game, but I have heard some stories about the playful banter that goes on there with our opponents fans too. 😉

    LUFKIN PANTHER FOOTBALL 2018

    Does anyone hear remember the 2009 Katy vs Bellevue, WA game? Katy defeated Bellevue 34 - 17 and Bellevue went on to win their state championship. Moments after Bellevue's Championship win, they held a sign honoring the Katy Tigers for contributing to their championship. At one time, years ago, there was a picture of the sign, but I've not been able to find it nearly ten years later. However, to make it even more interesting: In my opinion, that's the ultimate example of sportsmanship and one helluva honor for the Katy Tigers. I remember during 2003 season when Katy came to Lufkin and lost big. My friend and I came to watch that game, but had to sit on the Katy side because home was already full. Interestingly, there were Lufkin fans also among the Katy side and lined along the outside of the fence. My friend and I to this day remember the ------ some Lufkin fans gave Katy on their side. They were saying things like, if they wanted to see bad, they'd watch the Houston Texans. They repeatedly referenced the Katy Tigers as the Houston Texans. They were coursing and throwing stuff at the Katy football team from the stands. The Katy football players literally were looking up into the stands at all the nonsense they were being subjected to. This was, for me, an example of home-field advantage at it's best. What was even more interesting was Lufkin losing in the first round to Garland 19 - 10. This same friend I went to Ennis to watch the game. I wrote on the side of my truck something like "51 - 0 Lufkin". While on the way there, nearing the stadium, my friend brings to my attention that the car next to us is trying to get me to row down my window. I turned out to be Jorvorskie Lane's aunt and uncle, screaming across the highway if we knew were the stadium was. Screaming back, I told them we didn't, and they screamed back to follow them. Lufkin loses 19 - 10, and after the game is over, while I started wiping off the Lufkin representation on the side of my truck, Jorvorskie's uncle told me not to, to wear it with pride. So we drove all the way back home with something very different written on the outside of my truck than what really happened. In amazement, my friend and I watch the Katy Tigers go on to win the State Championship. Was it karma? The story is rather uninteresting, but the outcome is hilarious. Lufkin dominates Katy, Lufkin loses in the first round and Katy goes undefeated the rest of the season to win state. I remember after the Lufkin game that Katy said they would never go back to Lufkin again, not because they lost, but because a few toxic Lufkin fans. So what's the difference? How is it that opponents of Katy generally regard their culture with the up-most respect, yet Lufkin seen as something much different. Maybe things have changed and it's different now. I'm not knocking it, it's just interesting to me. I think that ruthlessness mentality of Lufkin really makes it hard to win there. The fans and the team, they get inside your head. It's pretty fascinating compared to a culture like Katy.

    LUFKIN PANTHER FOOTBALL 2018

    There are several great things about the 2018 Lufkin Panther football team that I want to point out that may not have been talked about very much. It's true we return a whole bunch of players from last year's 2017 team that went 11-3 and deep in the playoffs, but the difference this year in many respects, is how improved the team is overall, both speed-wise and size-wise from last year's team. Those guys really worked extremely hard in the offseason with a driven purpose to come back stronger and finish what they started last year. This is really good group of seniors that will immensely help this group go a long way. Other Improvement areas not talk about much is our overall depth as as a team, we are much deeper in several positions than we were last year, especially on the defensive lines, linebackers, Offensive lines and wide receivers. We have three or four guys they can run the ball this year, where we had just one or two last year. Have a second year returning quarterback in Thomas that's going to help us too, but the good thing is we also have two really good backups for him. We have Jordan Moore who will be a sophomore, who's already been in the system, has really progressed in the off-season and unless something serious happens, he will be heading up the JV as starting quarterback there so He can get plenty of live action reps, opposed to standing on the sidelines on the varsity. He is already being noticed by some scouts in combines, he is the heir apparent to Thomas. Then we have a kid named Stephens, who is a real good backup quarterback/TE, he transferred back to Lufkin this year for his senior year after playing elsewhere the last couple years, I think someone told me Atascocita. (Someone please check me on this) We have always been fortunate to have three or four good players every year, to come into our system, that are able to help the team during the season. This year is no exception. The sheer size of our defensive fronts, linebackers and offensive line folks is quite impressive. You can tell that many put in a lot of work during the offseason and you know that's going to pay off during the season. We are loaded at wide receiver this year and I for one didn't see that coming, but we've got a lot of kids that can catch the ball and go. Anyway, maybe all you guys can come out next week to Abe Martin and watch the kids go at it with their scrimmage with Huntsville. Something to look forward to the rest of the year. You probably won't see much of the first teams players but it looks like the backups are pretty fun to watch too. All starts next Friday. Go Panthers!

    Well exactly two weeks from tonight hopefully will be in Longview kicking off the 2018 football season with the Lufkin Panthers. It seems like it's been such a drag for the football season to get here but I'm telling you, once it gets going, it goes by very fast and it will be December before you know it. I know the football players been working really hard in the offseason, the band has been working very hard the last several weeks to get ready and I know everybody else involved has been working to get all the intricate parts together to make the season happen. Well, if you're anything like me, I'm ready to get it going and enjoy some good high school football, especially watching our Lufkin kids play and represent our community. Go Panthers!!

    I'd rather be at home.... but we would just reverse the home and home schedule for this season and next season. I'd rather not have 6 road games this season.....but I guess the trade would be 6 home games next season. Meh..... as long as we can keep it competitive..... I don't care if we played on the moon.

    Some of the Longview folks are thinking if your pressbox is not finished then they will play marshall at Lobo. Doesn't sound like a good swap for you guys.

    DEFINITELY not putting too much stock in the polls. We've been ranked before and squatted. But it's fun to daydream. Would be fun to be back at Abe again. It's been a LONG time since we played there. 2002 I believe. I was there for 7 on 7..... amazing how much...and how little it's changed in that time. Probably the same could be said about Maverick Stadium. We both got video boards now. Both got turf. And we're working on a new pressbox. Hope it's done in time for the Longview game. We shall see. Again... best of luck to LP this season. Always enjoy seeing East Texas do well no matter the classification. We will see the Panthers starting this winter for Basketball/Baseball/Soccer.....etc.... should be fun!
