LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Lufkin Pro Day group, a non-profit organization, is hosting their 5th annual pro day next Tuesday.
The banquet will be honoring coach Guy Davis of Angelina College, Bruce Alexander of the Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions and Scotty Bailess of Stephen F. Austin State University.
All three of these honorees have roots in Angelina County and have gone on to achieve success in the professional sports arena.
"It's so much fun doing this because you learn how many people you have in Angelina County that went on to stardom in their own right. And this is something that the group does to celebrate them in Angelina County and honor them and the families of the honorees love it," said Barbara Thompson with the Lufkin Pro Day Group.
