  2. It is now 2019 , time for an appropriate topic to cover Lufkin Football information for the upcoming 2019 season. From DCTF: I know how you feel. We are, at this moment, as far away from the start of the next Texas high school football season as we can be — more than 230 days until another competitive game. The vast desert wasteland of the offseason awaits us. In some ways, how it ended makes it worse. The last time we watched a Texas high school football game, it was the inconceivable, nationally famous, I-still-can’t-believe-it-three-weeks-later instant classic between Galena Park North Shore and Duncanville. And before that, it was another holy-cow-did-you-see-that matchup between Longview and Beaumont West Brook. The 2018 Texas high school football season saved the best for last, which makes the wait for the 2019 season all the more harrowing. But we’ve traversed this path before. We’ve found a way to drag ourselves through the seemingly endless offseason. For the Texas high school football junkie, here is a survival guide for the long wait until the season starts. The Coaching Carousel Since this is not a realignment year — we wait until next offseason for the UIL to rejigger the districts — all eyes will be on the always intriguing Texas high school football coaching wire. Every year, there are huge moves featuring high-profile coaches at major schools, but I am always particularly interested in the small-school maneuvering, with coaches packing up to take over prominent 3A and 2A programs. No matter what your taste, there’s sure to be a shake-up in the coaching ranks, and nobody covers it like our insider Matt Stepp — he’s the preeminent news-breaker in Texas high school football. 7-on-7 It’s still a ways away — state qualifying tournaments won’t begin until April, and the state competition isn’t until late June — but if you’re looking for actual football competition, 7-on-7 is the best we can get. I’m coming around on the value of 7-on-7 football, and at the very least, it’s an opportunity to watch some of the best quarterbacks, receivers and defenders in Texas duke it out. Make plans to be in College Station in late June Coaching Clinics It’s already clinic season! Texas high school football coaches are always honing their craft, and that means an offseason full of learning from other coaches at a variety of clinics around the state. The big one — the THSCA Coaching School and Convention — isn’t until July in Houston, but there are tons of terrific clinics around the state as early as this weekend. For us, it’s an opportunity to chop it up with coaches and bring you some interviews. Camps* This is also prime time for recruiting, as many of the best prospects across the state and the nation will descend on a variety of camps to test their mettle and improve their game. But be wary of some of these things, which are simply a vehicle to promote a brand and line the pockets of the people running it. Keep your head on a swivel. Reliving Past Games If you miss Texas high school football (and you’ve made it this far in the column, so I’m guessing you do), you can always watch memorable games from past seasons. Fox Sports Southwest is currently replaying all of the 2018 state championship games at various times; Texan Live has all of their games archived from this season; and YouTube has literally hundreds of games from across the decades for your viewing pleasure. Texas Football Today And hey, we’re talking Texas high school football year-round on our daily live show Texas Football Today! We break down the biggest topics of the day, talk with some of the most compelling coaches around Texas, and have fun doing it. If you’ve never checked out Texas Football Today, now’s the perfect time — you can watch it live on our site or on Facebook, or you can subscribe to the podcast. It’s a long, long time until the 2019 Texas high school football season kicks off, but never fear: there’s just enough football to get you through the offseason, if you look hard enough.

    Lufkin girls 69, John Tyler 53 — The trio of Lufkin’s Kurstyn Harden, Alexis Hood and Camryn Beam was too much for the John Tyler Lady Lions to overcome on Friday night at Tyler’s Boulter Middle School. Harden, Hood and Beam combined for 50 points as Lufkin took a 69-53 win in District 16-5A competition. Harden had 23 points, 14 rebounds, five blocks and four steals. Hood had 16 points, and Beam had 11 for the Lady Panthers. Asia Parker did her best to guide the Lady Lions to an upset of the first-place Lady Panthers. Parker finished with 34 points, eight rebounds, eight steals, five assists and three blocks. Lufkin sprinted out to a 9-2 lead, but John Tyler responded with a 9-0 run to take an 11-9 lead. Lufkin led 14-13 after the first quarter. Parker scored all 12 of John Tyler’s second-quarter points, but the Lady Panthers put in 25 points in the frame to lead 39-25 at the break. Lufkin extended its lead to 56-37 after three quarters. John Tyler (11-13, 3-4) will host Jacksonville on Tuesday. Lufkin (21-5, 7-0) will play at Hallsville on Tuesday.
  5. Lufkin teams sweep John Tyler By BRANDON OGDEN/For The Lufkin Daily News TYLER — District 16-5A entered Friday night in a logjam at the top with five teams at 2-2 or better. Two of those teams met at Boulter Middle School, and Lufkin escaped with a 57-49 board win over John Tyler. A 3-pointer by John Tyler’s Richard Powell, his only basket of the night, cut the Lufkin lead to 45-43 with 3:26 remaining. The Panthers answered with a three of their own from Ke’Vonte Hurts. The rest of the game became a free-throw fest. Darry Moore made two field goals in the final 1:43 for the Lions, the latest making the score 53-49 with 40 seconds on the clock, but Jerrin Thompson converted four free throws down the stretch to seal the win for the Panthers. Moore led John Tyler with 19 points. Anthony Miner and Michael Hogg Jr. had 9 points each. Hogg and O’Neal didn’t play in the first half. O’Neal provided help inside for the Lions as Moore spent the entire second half in foul trouble. Natron Wortham led Lufkin with 18 points and seven rebounds. He knocked down two first-half 3-pointers and then went inside to score 12 in the second half. Hurts had 15 points, and Thompson added 12 points and seven rebounds. Lufkin was up 8-2 early before an 11-0 John Tyler run that was highlight by a putback dunk from Moore. Deon Fields had a putback at the buzzer to give the Lions a 15-12 lead at the end of the first quarter. Lufkin led 27-24 at halftime. John Tyler ended the second quarter with another buzzer-beater, this time by Roy Lampton. The score was tied at 33 late in the third quarter before Wortham scored with 25 seconds left to give the Panthers a 35-33 advantage heading into the fourth. John Tyler (10-11, 2-3) will host Jacksonville on Tuesday. Lufkin (15-7, 4-1) will travel to Hallsville.
