Military Veteran Peer Network starting basketball league

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Lufkin chapter of the Military Veteran Peer Network will soon be starting a basketball League for veterans of all ages and service branches.

Program facilitator Jeff Headrick said the group has partnered up with legendary coach Guy Davis and Angelina College to put on the league. Headrick said the league will play games on Thursdays in the old school gym.

The league will run from Feb.11 to  March 31. The league will take a break on March 3 and 10 due to spring break on campus. Headrick said four teams have been formed so far, but they are welcome to adding more teams. Headrick said non-military residents are also able to play and offer support to veterans who participate.

Anyone wanting to help or participate can call Jeff Headrick at (936) 225-2887.
