LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - Lufkin Head Coach Todd Quick said his team won a Week 3 road matchup against state-ranked A&M Consolidated came from good practices.

“I told our guys that game was won on Tuesday and Wednesday,” Quick said. “There was not a lot of garbage going on, no problems on or off the field, offensively or defensively.”

Quick said his team has to have the mindset of a fresh slate each day.

“We just have to keep stacking days of getting better and stack each game,” he said. “Nothing carries over.”

The Panthers open district play against an old rival in Longview on Friday.

“We know who they are,” Quick said. “They’re playing hard. It’s who they are. They’re a good bunch. It’ll be quite the challenge for us.”
