LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - It doesn't seem like it, but 5 months have passed since the thundering 13 won the U.S. Championships. Since then, the community has been not only cheering but also supporting the Lufkin Little League All-Stars. That same community support is how the team finally received their championship rings on Sunday.
"I know that they're all supporting us and we're all doing our best. It makes me real proud," said Malcolm Deason, a player.
One by one each member of the team walked up and were given their championship ring.
"I probably wont wear it though because I don't want it to get stolen, but I will think about it," said Lance Modissette, another player.
A moment of pure joy the players say they will never forget.
In total 16 rings were given not only one for each player but the coaches as well.
