East Texas athletic director honored by Angelina Rotary Club

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Thursday, John Outlaw received the Angelina Rotary Club's highest honor, their Service Above Self Award.

Coach Outlaw was singled out for his devotion to Lufkin and its citizens, but it was his selflessness toward what he calls his "children" that brought him today's honor.

"It is a very rewarding experience. As I've said I've been very blessed, there have been a lot of great things, but whenever you get recognized by your peers, it means a whole lot to you," Outlaw said.

The Rotary Club presents the Service Above Self humanitarian award every year to a non-Rotary Club member.
