Notes:
* Will be without legendary coach John Outlaw for the first time in 17 years when he suddenly passed away last December
* 1979 The Lufkin ISD school board unanimously approved the re-naming of Panther Stadium to Abe Martin Stadium in honor of the former coach who brought a football championship to Lufkin High School in 1943

  • Mike Says:The Panthers are always an East Texas force. It will be an emotional event when the Panthers take the field for the first time in 2012 without their longtime coach John Outlaw. They will once again play the best that East Texas has to offer in their pre-district. Every game will be another classic with games against Tyler John Tyler, Tyler Lee, Nacogdoches and Longview. Their defensive front led by DL Lewis and their wide receivers led by WR Taylor will be the strengths of this team. Look for them to go 8-2 or 7-3 in the regular season and come in 2nd in the district behind The Woodlands. They will be a Division II playoff team and will be a tough out. They will play team from a very tough District 13-5A in Bi-District which is always hard.
  • Chris Says: Lufkin is the smallest school in District 14-5A, but you couldn't tell it by the way they play.  They bring back an amazing 32 lettermen from last year, but they do not bring back legendary Head Coach, John Outlaw.  He will be missed by people around the state, but none will miss him more than the Panthers.  The Panthers have a super tough pre-district schedule and district will come down to their game against The Woodlands.  Whether they come in first or second, they will head into the playoffs battle-tested and ready to win.  Expect this years Panthers to go further than last season.
