Everyone Gets to See Panther Game

by Larry Little

Lufkin Panther fans filled the stands to back the Pack on Saturday, December 10, 2005. Earlier this week, some folks feared there wouldn't be enough tickets but most folks bought tickets early. "I got a ticket on Monday of this week. It was pretty easy I have a friend who lives in Lufkin that help get everybody tickets, says Bobbie Adamson.

Tickets to sit on the lawn were sold to help alleviate the crowded stands. "We were told they were sold out, so we came prepared because we weren't going to miss this game. So we brought the works and we are here to enjoy the game", says Brad Faulk.

Brad drove from Jacksonville to watch the Panthers play. He says nothing was going to stop him from seeing this game. So he came with a backup plan. "We were told there are hills you can sit on when the game is sold out. But we can see pretty good from here. So we are here we don't have to listen to it on the radio. We are live. That's what it is all about, good fellowship", says Brad.

Brad and friends sat on the outside of the stadium and watched the game for free.
