Season-ending injury gets Lufkin native Jorvorskie Lane thinking: ‘Life after the NFL’

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

As Lufkin native Jorvorskie Lane prepares for the upcoming NFL season, it hasn’t stopped him from finding time to orchestrate a summer football camp.

Lane will be coming back to his hometown in Lufkin to throw his first-ever camp, and for good reason.

This offseason, Lane has been trying to comeback from surgery. The Tampa Bay Buccaneer broke his right leg last season in November. The injury cut his season short, but turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

It was then Lane realized it was time to start making a name for himself outside of football and give back to his hometown roots.

“Ever since I broke my leg, it's really been about life after football. I’m trying to set up my foundation, trying to give back and just start my journey. I’m setting myself up a little bit for life after football because we all know that football is not going to last forever,” said Lane. “That was one of my main focuses when I had down time with my injury. It kind of opened my eyes.”

Lane’s camp is a one-day event happening at Lufkin’s Abe Martin Stadium Friday, July 24th. To sign your child up or for more information, click here.
