Lufkin's Terrence Kiel was laid to rest Saturday. The former Panther went on to play for Texas A&M, and then four years with the San Diego Chargers. Kiel died last weekend in a car wreck, and was buried in his hometown of Lufkin.

More than 700 family, friends, and former coaches and teammates came out to say goodbye, and remember Kiel.

"You lose a guy like that, it's tough," former Chargers teammate Randall Godfrey said. "I went to battle a lot with Terrence Kiel, and I look forward to going to battle with him in heaven, because he's a good kid. He will be missed.

"He was a terrific person," Chargers tight end Antonio Gates said, "an incredible athlete, and he was a friend of mine. I'm down here on behalf of my friends and fellow teammates."
