Lufkin Panthers

Head Coach: Todd Quick

District: 8-5A- DI

School Colors: Purple, Gold

Stadium Address: 309 S Medford Dr, Lufkin, TX 75901

2017 Record: 11-3, 6A DII Region II finalist

Returning Starters: 6 on offense, 6 on defense

Players to watch: 

  • QB Kewone Thomas - 2,238 passing yards
  • WR JaLyn Polk - 667 receiving, 6 TDs
  • NG Carl Williams - 6'4'' 301 lbs
  • S Jerrin Thompson
  • DE Breylon Garcia
  • DE JaVasia Brunson

Notes: last season the Panthers had their best season in 5 years, reaching the regional finals. They would fall to rivals Longview by 1 point. The Panthers will look to replace running back Isaiah Phillips but Polk should be a force down field. Garcia will switch to defense full time to add to a stacked line. Thompson will lead the defense that has plenty of DI offers.
