A successful senior season has landed a former Lufkin Panther on one of the state’s elite teams.
Following a strong 2017 year, Lufkin’s Dylan Murphy was named to the Collin Street Bakery/Texas Sports Writers Association All-State Baseball Team.
Murphy earned the third-team honor as a senior relief pitcher for the Panthers. He had a 3.86 ERA in 19 innings while striking out 14 and walking two.
He was a vital part of the team with six saves and a 1-1 record.
The Panthers, led by second-year head coach John Cobb, made the playoffs before being knocked out in the first round of the playoffs.
