I have been following the progress of Jorvorskie over at ATM to see if there is a chance he will be on the field with Reggie. Things are looking pretty good for him. I know Widey does not like the Aggies but surely he still likes to see his hometown boys be successful. Here are links to two articles that mention Jorvorskie.

I want all the old Panthers to succeed. Even if they are aggy.
But when they play my beloved 'Horns I hope they get so embarrassed they never want to play again....
Just my little way of saying....You should have went to UT.

BTW...I have 2 nephews at aggy...they hear it all the time.
Couldn't talk 'em out of it.

I have a feeling once Lane goes on the field to make some plays it is gonna turn out to be a A.P. situation! He might not get as many yards as A.P. but he will make an impact and open some eyes like he did.

Lpfan thanks for printing those. My dad just asked me if i heard how he was doing?? Now i can claim i did the research. ;) Wide?? I just do not get it?? You should still not want the players from your true alma mater to get embarrassed even if they are your college team's most hated rivals. You went to Lufkin not Texas so the allegiance should be stronger in my opiniion. If Iowa played Ohio St or Iowa St. who i absolutely despise, and they had some panther players, i would still obviously want Iowa to kill them but i would still want the panther players to do well. At least not get embarrassed. Where is your LP pride?? ;)

Yeah that is kind of what I was thinking. Adrian is just flat out amazing. Lane is a great back and I feel he will make an impact on the team this year but I don't think he will do what Adrian did in his first year. It would definitely be nice if he did though. I am not saying it is not possible because anything is possible. I am just saying it is not likely. Either way he will have a great career at the college level.

Obviously there is alot of press about Reggie and I like to see how he is doing as well. I just think Reggie and Jorvorskie being on the field at the same time can be tough to defend. Reggie can either pass it to his good receivers, run it, or give it to the Train. Who do you key in on? :eek: We will see. It should be an exciting year for the two of them and I am sure alot of Lufkin fans will be watching them as well. Alton Dixon might not get any playing time this season but I look for him to make an impact on the team in the coming years. I read that McKinner Dixon and Rashad Hunt could be in the mix right away over at Texas Tech this season. Here are some links that have some information on both of them.

Terrence Parks looked to have the starting QB job over at Baylor untill he cut his throwing hand during spring training. He is now 2nd string due to his injury. Hopefully he will earn the starting position before the season starts. You can read more about that here.

Hey Lpfan here is a few you missed, chris pilot is starting at de for houston this year and jacorrey sheppard is battling for a #1 corner spot at rice. Most magazines say he has a great shot at playing time this year. How about Kevin Bryan at a&m?? former panther tight end that graduated in 2003 i think?? I hear they have bulked him up and put weight on him and turned him into a ol. Also, both Joseph Hadnot and Ray Givens were getting playing time at Lousian Lafayette, (a div1a school) the last i heard??

Now on the bad news, Of course Aaron Darks was suspended from the Kansas st team last year and now i just heard from another site that Kirksey and Payne was kicked off the Kilgore football team. Kirksey originally signed with Washington st out of hs but could not make the grades and he transferred to Kilgore. That guy could play some great LB and it is sure is a shame. He was supposed to start this year.

By embarassed I meant ...the score of th game. Not the individual person. If the 'Horns can beat aggy...and Reggie still has a good game...that's fine. But my heart will never allow me to cheer for a guy with an aggy helmet on. I will not curse or belittle him...but as the same time I can't clap and cheer. If I do I'm almost certain I will become ill and puke instantly. I hope they do well...like I said....every game except one. There is my Lp pride...
If I had no pride in my alma mater...I would want them to get killed every game.

Kevin Bryan is listed as 3rd string on the depth chart. He is listed at 280 and as an offensive lineman. I have read about most of the others you have mentioned What I want to know is what happened to big JU? I know he transferred from ATM to some other school but I do not remember the name and I don't even know if he is even playing any more. Do you know? Isn't it nice to be able to post information about former Panthers and where they are playing now, and then not be able to keep up with all of them because there are so many that you leave some of them out. I guess you can tell I am proud of my hometown boys. The ones who mess up need some help though. I hate seeing people with God given talent, brains, etc. waste their opportunities.

It is a shame but it happens all of the time. I can relate a little even though i finished my college career. Still wondering how i managed that with the amount of dumb things i did?? :eek: You just have to live and learn sometimes!! Anyways, Ju went to Sam Houston after leaving aggy land i think but i do not know if he is still there??

Ok wide i will cut you some slack!! i guess you still have a little Lp pride even if they are aggies!! ;) Wouldn't it have been great if they all were at Texas. Then you would have the double the reason to cheer for them.

I just watched the local news and they said that Jorvorskie had a good showing at ATM's intrasquad scrimmage. He had 5 carries for 67 yards and 3 touchdowns. That is an average of 13.4 yards per carry. :eek: Looks like he is doing a good job over there and will be earning himself some playing time. I am looking forward to seeing Jorvorskie and Reggie on the field at the same time.

Also read this on CoachFran.com

"A common question we get is who will be the backup tailback. We don't discuss injuries that aren't season-ending, but it's leaked out through the San Antonio Express-News that Brandon Leone is hobbled, so the fight for No. 2 focuses on Samson Taylor, Jay Lucas, and freshman Jorvorskie Lane. Jorvorskie is intriguing because, while he needs some better conditioning, he has good moves in the open field and the striking thing is how well he runs behind his pads for great balance. We haven't seen anybody stand him up on a tackle very often."

Excellent! :)

Other than Reggie, the Ags haven't had a serious running game in awhile. I hope Lane brings that, and the sooner the better.

Yep - looks like Jorvorski is getting that mean chip back on his shoulder - look out maroon! Once he "decides" there is simply no stopping him. If he stays healthy -- he may be getting some serious touches come conference time - sooner if Courtney gets banged up again.

On second thought...aggy is pretty damn dumb...they will probably use up all of his eligibility as quick as possible...i.e. Reggie.

That is a big guy. Is he pretty fast for his size? I know from looking at his stats on UT's website it does not look like he came close to having the kind of high school career that Lane did. I am sure he will still be good though.

I noticed they have Lane listed at 5'11" on ATM's website. He must have gotten shorter or Lufkin exaggerated when they listed his height. On Lufkin's roster he was listed as being 6'1" so someone has it wrong.

His brother Jermichael is 6'4 or 6'5, his Uncle is close to 6'10 and his dad is at least 6'5!! Looks like Javorski is the smurf of the family. ;) He is at least 6'0 by the way. Didn't Henry Melton play for Grapevine in HS?? He could not even sniff Javorski's jock strap so lets keep this in perspective ok!!

See i was right. Melton could not even sniff Lane's jock in hs. In fact, if Javorski would have went to UT they would have named him Jesus on the right side beside his father God AKA Vince. I felt yucky about making that statement but you got my point. LOL I am sure the KT brothers know of a Houston kid that was twice the back J Lane was though. ;)

I think I'll take Texas' history at running back, and the chances that Melton is good. That's if he doesn't get moved to DE where we need help.

It depends what era you are going by. I remember runningbacks like G Hill running all over the Horns back in the late 80's and early 90's.

Yeah there is no doubt Lane was the better back. And I say he will be he better back in colleg too.
