  1. Got that from Dallas Morning News. O well.
  2. Lone Star Rangers win over Mansfield Legacy https://www.hudl.com/team/v2/16729/Boys-Varsity-Football They look just like Lufkin.
  3. Don't know. A bunch of this is predetermined. They picked a venue and we picked a venue. It is a chess game based on travel time, familiarity and what a coach sees an advantage or not. I am sure Quick picked Tyler Rose and Lone Star picked Waco because they knew a ton of Lufkin folks would be in Tyler. They probably flipped a coin and we lost.

  7. From ETSN: LUFKIN – Facing a dangerous McKinney North Mustangs team, the Lufkin Panthers took their share of hard hits in falling on three different occasions in the first half. Once the Panthers’ defense finally started delivering hits of its own, the Mustangs never stood a chance as Lufkin reeled off 30 unanswered points to turn a shootout into a runaway with a 50-27 victory in Class 5A DI Region II Bi-District playoff action at Abe Martin Stadium on Friday night. Qu’Vontae Smallwood ran for 180 yards on 17 carries and Kewone Thomas threw for 185 yards and three touchdowns to lead a Lufkin offense that put up 541 total yards of offense. However, Lufkin couldn’t rest easy until the defense put up a half of domination after being rattled in the first half. “The first one is tough because you have to get used to the mindset of win or go home,” Lufkin head coach Todd Quick said. “I thought we made some good adjustments at the half and rolled from there.” The offenses ran wild in a first half that featured 48 points and six lead changes. Lufkin took advantage of an early McKinney North turnover that set up a Leo Acevedo 22-yard field goal for a 3-0 advantage. The Mustangs answered with a 17-play, 75-yard drive that was capped by a Dillon Markiewicz 6-yard touchdown run for a 7-3 lead. Lufkin responded on the following offensive play with Titan Williams shaking off a pair of defenders in the backfield before running for a 61-yard touchdown to give the Panthers the lead for the second time at 10-7. Lufkin’s lead grew to 6 points with Acevedo connecting on a 39-yard field goal for a 13-7 lead. McKinney North responded with Noah Ford making a 4-yard touchdown reception from Markiewicz that put the Mustangs on top 14-13. Lufkin once again had the answer with Torrance Agnew catching a 7-yard touchdown in the corner of the end zone to make it 20-14. McKinney North came right back with Emmanuel Fincher scored on a 5-yard touchdown run that put the Mustangs on top for the third time at 21-20. Lufkin came through with a clutch score before the half as Christian Reggie found himself wide open for a 48-yard catch before Ja’Lynn Polk made a spectacular 16-yard touchdown reception that made it 27-21 at the half. After recovering an onside kick to start the second half, McKinney North couldn’t take advantage as a 43-yard field goal fell well short. The Panthers responded by making it a two-score game when Acevedo made a 22-yard field goal with 5:36 left in the quarter, making the score 30-21. Lufkin made it 36-21 in spectacular fashion as Thomas hit Christian Reggie for a 26-yard touchdown pass on fourth and 16 with 11:48 remaining. Lufkin’s defense continued to dominate the second half as DeVandre Houston fell on a fumble at the McKinney North 1 and Thomas snuck it in from there to make the score 43-21 with nine minutes remaining. The lead ballooned to 50-21 when Caleb Berry scored on a 16-yard touchdown run with 3:10 remaining. McKinney North found the end zone for the first time in the second half when Brandon Frazier caught a four-yard touchdown pass that made the score 50-27 in the final three minutes. Lufkin (10-1) advances to the area round of the playoffs where it will face Frisco Lone Star with a site and date to be announced.
  8. Panthers knock out McKinney North By JOSH HAVARD/The Lufkin Daily News When the McKinney North Mustangs turned the first half of Friday night’s Class 5A DI Region II Bi-District matchup into a track meet, the Lufkin Panthers had enough octane to hold their own. By the time Lufkin turned the second half into a heavyweight boxing match, it was lights out for the Mustangs as the Panthers rattled off 30 unanswered points on their way to a 50-27 win on John Outlaw Memorial Field at Abe Martin Stadium. “You have to get punched in the mouth to see how the kids are going to react,” Lufkin head coach Todd Quick said. “We had to fight our tails off out there tonight. They went out there and buckled up their chin straps and went to work. By the end of the game, we were where we needed to be.” Qu’vontae Smallwood ran for 180 yards on 17 carries and Kewone Thomas threw for 185 yards and three scores on 12-of-18 passing. However, Lufkin couldn’t breathe easily until a defense that has been one of the best in the state for most of the year rose to the occasion. After allowing 21 points and 274 yards in the first half, Lufkin held McKinney North to four yards through the first 18 minutes of the second half. By the time, McKinney North finally found the end zone on a Brandon Frazier 4-yard touchdown reception from Dillon Markiewicz with 2:48 remaining, the game had long been decided. “I thought we were trying to do too much in the first half and we were able to settle down at halftime,” Quick said. “I thought the defensive line got to them early in the second half, and that really started to change things.” Meanwhile, the offense was up to the challenge on a night it scored 50 points and only punted twice. Titan Williams ran for 82 yards and a touchdown on two carries and also hauled in three passes for 25 yards. “I thought the offense played well all night long,” Quick said. “Qu’vontae did a great job of getting through there and running hard.” The first half was an offensive explosion from both teams as they combined for 48 points, nearly 600 yards of total offense and six lead changes. The Panthers’ defense got a good start as it forced a turnover on the third play of the game that set up a Leo Acevedo 22-yard field goal for a quick 3-0 lead. McKinney North answered by cranking up the offense on a play that spanned 75 yards on seven plays. Markiewicz closed out the drove with a 6-yard touchdown run for the Mustangs’ first lead of the game at 7-3. Lufkin took just one offensive play with Williams breaking a tackle in the backfield before racing 61 yards for a touchdown that put the Panthers on top for the second time at 10-7. Lufkin extended that margin to 13-7 when Acevedo made a season-long 39-yard field goal with 10:20 left in the half. However, the lead changed for the third time when Noah Ford hauled in a 52-yard catch down the sideline before making a 4-yard touchdown reception from Markiewicz that made it 14-13 with 8:20 left in the first half. Lufkin answered once again with Torrance Agnew making a nice 7-yard touchdown reception in the corner of the end zone for a 20-14 advantage. McKinney North came back in the back-and-forth game with Emmanuel Fincher scoring on a 5-yard touchdown run that made it 21-20 with just 40 seconds remaining in the half. Undeterred, Thomas hit a wide-open Christian Reggie down the sideline for a 48-yard pass on the next Lufkin offensive play. That set up a spectacular 18-yard touchdown reception from Thomas to Ja’Lynn Polk that capped a 15-second drive and gave the Panthers a 27-21 lead at the half. McKinney North opened the second half by recovering an onside kick before Lufkin’s defense stood strong in forcing a missed 43-yard field goal. The Panthers took advantage with Acevedo kicking a 22-yard field goal that made it 30-21 with 5:36 left in the third quarter. Facing a fourth-and-16, Thomas found Reggie in the corner of the end zone for a 26-yard touchdown pass that made it 36-21 with 11:48 left in the game. Lufkin’s defense then set up another score as DeVandre Houston recovered a fumble at the McKinney North 1 and Thomas snuck it in from there, making the score 43-21 with 8:57 left in the game. The Panthers continued to pour it on when Caleb Berry powered his way in for a 16-yard rushing touchdown that made it 50-21 with 3:10 left. McKinney North finally ended a string of 30 straight Lufkin points when Markewicz found Frazier for a 5-yard touchdown pass that made the score 50-27 with 2:48 remaining. The Panthers (10-1) will take on Frisco Lone Star in the area round of the playoffs with a date and site to be determined. Josh Havard’s email address is jhavard@lufkindailynews.com.
  9. McKinney North was two close loses to JT and Mesquite Poteet from being the 1st place team in 7-5A. They should have won the JT game at Tyler. McKinney North was a dirty playing team and the refs were influenced by their coaches who screamed about everything all game long. MN was a talking bunch too, but Lufkin can be as well. We can't take the bait and we do all too easily sometimes. MN was a well coached team that had some speedy RBs and a big 6'7" TE who had success early. They were not a bad team at all, a label most fans put on a typical 4th place team. So winning this game wasn't easy, but it was because MN was a decent competitive team. The Lone Star scouts saw plenty to work against us next week. When are we finally going to work out the offensive kinks, mainly the penalty bug? No rest, because Lone Star has a great defense too. Kewone Thomas can look like Homer Simpson on some play, then can come back and look like Patrick Mahomes on a run or throw. He still throws stuff short or late at times. He had 2 batted at the LOS and hit a wide open official. The official did not make the catch. On the big catch by Christian Reggie, if Thomas throws the ball early when Reggie was wide wide wide open, he walks into the endzone untouched, but Thomas threw it late and Reggie was tackled at the 15 . I will tell you in the end, his decisions in crunch time could be our playoff fate and maybe some the offensive play calling too. Kewone is lucky he has some really good WR who can go get the ball, because they bailed him out a few times tonight especially Torrence Agnew on the goaline line when it should have been an INT for Thomas, Agnew instead took the ball away from the DB for a reception at the one yard line.. Thomas needs to buy them all a Whataburger lunch for their efforts tonight. Our Defense woke up and figured things out in the 2nd half and just physically beat up MN and MN did not like it, so they got dirty and the officials did nothing to stop them. That official on the MN side of the field made 4 calls that he never threw his flag, just blew his whistle or ran over to the back judge to tell him the infraction. Anyway, time to forget about MN and move on, they are old news now. A solid win for Lufkin and a LONG ride home for those chop blocking MN boys!
  10. Smallwood 17 carries for 182 yards
  11. Being out coached in special teams. Almost lost a short kickoff, then lost the onside kick to start the 2nd half, lucky to hold them off.
  12. Kewone and his decision making is killing us in this first half. Green throwing on 1st down from the Pack 4 yard line, batted down.
  13. Not talking about this game any afterward tonight. May put what Josh Harvard prints in the LDN. May say something tomorrow. I think the results will speak for itself.
  14. Called The Lufkin ISD ticket office and they said there were plenty of tickets left for the game tonight. It's not near a sell-out. It is sad that people wait until they think they're going to win later in the playoffs and never watch the Panthers play during the season. I don't think much of those type of fans.
