(LSG was at the Lufkin/Klein playoff game : Lufkin was down 27-7 in the 4th and was making a comeback and had the momentum. Everyone in the stands and pressbox just knew that if the Panthers got the ball back they would win. Klein went for it on 4th and 1 at their 30 though with 2:11 remaining and made it and held on for a 27-21 victory over Lufkin.)
