Defense shines in Lufkin spring football game

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - In Lufkin's annual purple and white spring football game, the defense came out and made a statement. The defense corralled the offense, not allowing a touchdown in the entire first half. Making plays in space and limiting the big plays helped the defense to keep quarterback Trey Cumbie and company out of rhythm.

In the third quarter however, Cumbie and the offense stuck. Cumbie hit Jamal Jeffrey on a seem pattern for a long touchdown. Later in the third, Cumbie found KeKe Coutee deep down the sideline for a huge chunk of yardage. Then to cap off the drive, Cumbie went back to Coutee on a slant pattern for a touchdown.
