You have to love living in Lufkin during football season. It’s a ritual here, this common mindset that every citizen has on Fridays no matter what background they have. Friday rolls around their purple shirts are ready, they know their exact plans this evening and every place in town is empty because Abe Martin Stadium is full. It’s Panther Football time!
This Friday is no different and the stands will be packed. This week our Panthers face off against the Nacogdoches Golden Dragons. Our annual rivalry showdown is at Abe Martin Stadium this year. This should be a great game for the Panthers and hopefully high scoring. Our Panthers haven’t lost to the Dragons in years. In fact most of our seniors were not even born yet the last time the Panthers lost this match-up. Most likely a lot of preparation for the game against Longview next week will be seen in tonight’s game.
Can’t wait to see you at the game and remember PURPLE OUT!
