Looks like Lufkin's favorite son is coming to town. He is ready for a little BBQ and kickball before heading off to camp. He is on the cusp of what could be his best ever year in the NFL. The former Lufkin Panther has fought for and beat records in his past 8 years in the NFL, even though some injuries have kept him from starting in the past. Things may really align for him and the Dallas Cowboys, and you could say that you kicked the ball around with him before it all started.

Looks like a lot of people in the area are comment and taking notice of the post that he is going to be around Lufkin on 7/20/17. Perhaps we could figure out what his favorite BBQ places is and see if he shows up?

We are following the story closely on facebook, and if an impromptu kickball game gets going make sure and let us know!
