Featured Videos

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."

    On a hot, humid East Texas Monday, Jake Arledge sat and visited with Angelina Baseball Coach Jeff Livin. After the morning talk the two would leave the AC cooled office and venture into the heat to look for an apartment. Five years ago, Arledge would have never thought his life would bring him to Lufkin.
