The Lufkin Panthers have announced tickets are on sale today from 7am to 3pm for the Panthers' game against John Tyler Friday night at Rose Stadium in Tyler.

You can get the tickets today at the Panther Ticket Office in the LISD Transportation building (bus barn) at 811 S. Timberland Drive. Then go cheer on the Panthers Friday night.

The Nacogdoches Dragons will have Labor Day weekend off, and they'll open the season at home against Henderson on September 7th.

Fans have been waiting 9 months for the new season to start, and ask any pregnant woman...that's a long time. Good luck to Lufkin, Nac, Diboll, and all of our favorite East Texas teams!
