New "Train" in Town

The Lufkin Panthers is adding a new caboose to its offensive line. Tre'Von Lewis is taking over for J-Train, Javorskie Lane the 200-plus running back known for battering through opposing defenses while leading the Panthers just short of a state title in 2004.

It will be tough for Lewis to equal Lane in size, but Lufkin's new starting running back thinks he can equal the production. Three years ago, the Pack loved riding "The Train." The J-Train departed for College Station to play for the Texas A & M Aggies.

Now, another locomotive has arrived in Lufkin. All aboard the "Tre-Train." Junior running back Tre'Von Lewis likes the sound. He says defenders would be wise to just stay out of his way. The conductor of this running engine is a group of pretty big offensive lineman that plan on laying tracks through defenders. "I personally would like him to get 200-plus a game. That reflects on us and how we block for him," said Lineman Josh Ernshoff. "I care a lot about that. It shows how we're doing. If he gets 150 yards a game, it shows we're doing our job," added fellow lineman Jacolby Ashworth. "My offensive line, they're the best I've ever had. Last year we was good, but these guys coming back are strong and fast," mused Lewis.

With "The Train" coming, power football is back with the Pack. He's not quite as big as J-Lane, but he probably packs the same punch. "People want to know how I'm going to replace JaCorey or Lane. Well, I'm a combo of both." If Lewis chugs through defenses like he predicts, maybe we can give him an original nickname. Head Coach John Outlaw calls him "T-Bone." No matter the name, just look out for the number.

By the way, Lewis rushed for 700 yards as a sophomore last season.
