Head Coach: Todd Quick

District: 8-5A- DI

School Colors: Purple, Gold

Stadium Address: 309 S Medford Dr, Lufkin, TX 75901

2021 record: 4-6

Notes: Lufkin’s 23-year playoff streak came to an end in 2021. The Panthers will look to start a new streak and will be joining a new district shifting from a district with schools northwest of Houston and the Brazos Valley to schools in the east metroplex and familiar rivals Longview and Tyler High. Lufin’s problem last year was youth and the lack of upper classman depth. That looks to shift this year as that youth gets older. Coaches have been impressed with the growth of several key players. T.J Hammond and Elijah Moody will make for an interesting duo at the quarterback position with both seeing playing time last year. O’Ryan Hart should bring some size to the wide receiver position. Kedren Young is a running back that could start to get some attention from the college coaches. He finished last year with 11 touchdowns. On Defense Tanner Havard and Chrismon Sigler are back after leading the team in tackles and sacks last season.
