WEBXTRA: First day of Lufkin Spring football

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Lufkin Panthers returned to the field on Monday with their first day of Spring football.

The Panthers are looking to rebound after an early playoff exit in 2018 with a 49-21 loss to Frisco Lone Star.

The team is losing several key seniors but coach Todd Quick is confident that the junior leadership will step up to fill those roles.

The 2019 season for Lufkin kicks off Aug. 30 at 7:30 pm against Longview inside Abe Martin Stadium.
