KLTV 7 Sports Spotters Report: Spring Hill

The Spring Hill Panthers extended their winning streak to three games with a 41-7 win over the Sabine Cardinals last Friday. After a rocky start, the Panthers dominated the game, with an even 300 yards of total offense, getting 169 on the ground and 131 through the air.  Quarterback Chris Lee was 7-of-15 for 113 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Michael Secord came on in the fourth quarter and completed his only pass for 18 yards. Scott Powell led the Panther receiving corps with three receptions for 49 yards and Max Garcia led the ground attack running for 81 yards and scoring two touchdowns. Spring Hill's defense allowed Sabine only 158 yards and nine first downs, five of those coming on the Cardinals' final drive. The win gives the Panthers an undefeated record in district ( 3-0 ).

Jake Fudge, who has been the primary tailback since the loss of Demikel Shankle went down midway through the first quarter with an injured ankle, and could likely miss the rest of the season. Defensive tackle Rance Thomas injured an arm but should be okay to play Friday night.

The Panthers will travel to Gilmer this week to face the unbeaten, state-ranked Buckeyes. With Jake Fudge out, Spring Hill will need Max Garcia to have an exceptional game, as well as Chris Lee, who is starting to become a very good quarterback for the Panthers. The game is set for 7:30 Friday night in Gilmer.

    It's been Pro Day after Pro Day across the country the past two weeks, and today it was Stephen F. Austin's turn to put their crop of eligible athletes in front of NFL scouts.  "I was really proud of all the guys. I thought we had some excellent work on the bench press, Anthony Pullins knocked it out of the gym. We had some guys really jump well, run well, and then of course catch and throw well.

    I think its safe to say Jameis Winston likes to hang out with East Texas talent. The Tampa Bay quarterback was in Lufkin Wednesday night with former teammate Jorvorskie Lane to help the former Lufkin star talk with kids and support his "Lane of Hope" foundation. But, earlier Wednesday, a picture surfaced on social media of Winston working out with Adrian Peterson in Houston at a training facility.
