Head Coach: Todd Quick
School Colors: Purple, Gold
Stadium Address: 309 S Medford Dr, Lufkin, TX 75901
2016 Record: 7-4, 6A DII bi-district finalist
Returning starters: 3 on offense, 4 on defense
Players to watch:
WR Malik Jackson (Houston commit, 916 receiving yards, 9 touchdowns)
ATH Jeremiah Davis (ULL commit)
WR/DB Isaiah Phillips
WR/DB Savon Fields
Notes: If the Panthers can find a reliable option at quarterback to replace Kordell Rodgers, their offense should be potent once again in 2017. Led by wide receiver and Houston commit Malik Jackson, Lufkin has plenty of playmakers ready to find the endzone. Head coach Todd Quick is a defensive guy, so we will see how that unit comes together with only four returning starters.
