Butterfly Release

Mrs. Prather's high school class released their Painted Lady butterflies.  For the last four weeks the class has watched the caterpillars grow, form a chrysalis, and then emerge as beautiful butterflies. Now the butterflies will continue their life cycle as they lay their eggs.  What a beautiful way to celebrate the Spring season!

Good morning Panther Nation!!  On Friday night the Panthers played their hearts out, but unfortunately came up a little short, falling to Hudson 4-2.  After an early 2-0 deficit, Jesus Landaverde and Hector Del Rio were able to pull the Panthers level at 2-2.  Marco Castellanos played a great part in assisting both goals.  Another historic season for Panther soccer comes to a close.  An undefeated district championship and a first ever playoff win.  I would like to thank every fan and parent that showed up this season, especially those that traveled on the fan buses and cheered us on.  Dr. Abshier, Dr. Barrett, Mr. Ward, Coach Taylor and the list goes on for those that made our historic run possible.  Some faces will change, seniors graduate, but that Panther spirit will never extinguish and we will be back next year ready to do it all again.  Please enjoy the playoff highlight reel and go Panthers!!

On Thursday, the Panther soccer team made history by winning their first ever playoff game, but before that, they did something so much more important than a game.  On Thursday morning the Panthers traveled to Liberty Elementary School and spent time with Mr. Romo's and Mrs. Morfin's 2nd grade classes.  When I was in 3rd grade my school played for a football state championship and I remember when the football team came by my classroom and the awe I felt.  I just knew our quarterback was better than Joe Montana and I hung onto his every word as he and the other football players walked the room giving high fives and telling us to keep our grades up so we could play for a championship one day.  As the Panthers walked into the classrooms, I saw those second graders giving the same looks I had given 30 years earlier to my heroes.  The kids whispered and pointed in excitement, almost fighting to make sure they were at a table with a certain player.  The boys pulled out books and read, gentle and careful in a way that many of us that deal with teenagers rarely get to see.  After spending recess and lunch with the 2nd graders, the Panthers headed over to San Jacinto Elementary for a mini pep rally; another amazing experience that showed the mature and genteel nature of these young men.  They waded among the throng of little ones, giving hugs and high fives, stopping every so often to speak words of life into little ears.  The same experience repeated itself on Friday when the Lady Panthers spent time on the SJE campus.  Sometimes I worry what the next generation will become, as I'm sure the generation before me worried about what my group would accomplish.  In that moment I was able to catch a glimpse and relax, if just for second, knowing that these kids, these young adults, are ready for life.  It doesn't mean they won't stumble or make mistakes, but they are ready.  At the end of a long day or an even longer week, please don't forget that they are watching us, listening to us and just waiting for us to believe in them.  To the teachers, principals and staff on the LES and SJE campuses, thank you from the bottom of my heart and even though you may never see a child again after they leave you, I promise they will never forget the positive impact you've had on them.  To the teachers, principals and staff on the LMS and LHS campuses that continue to shape these diamonds and help me to get them ready for life, thank you.  To everyone in Liberty ISD, thank you for helping me put THIS in my win column.  Go Panthers!!

Last night the Panthers traveled to College Station to take on the China Spring Cougars in Bi-District playoff action.  When the final buzzer sounded, the Liberty Panthers were crowned Bi-District Champions!!  The 3-2 playoff win is the first playoff victory in Liberty soccer history.  Giovanni Lopez and Lion Garcia both scored first half goals to give the Panthers a 2-0 halftime lead.  Liberty and China Spring traded goals in the first 5 minutes of the second half and the 3-1 Panther lead remained for a majority of the match.  China Spring scored late in the game, but it was too little, too late.  Hector Villarreal assisted Xavier Montez on the third goal and Hector Del Rio assisted on the opener by Gio Lopez.  The Panthers await the winner of Hudson and Little Cyprus-Mauriceville.  That match takes place tonight.  The Area round match will take place on Friday April 1, site to be determined.  The Lady Panthers travel to College Station this evening to face Lorena in a Bi-District match, with a start time of 6 pm.  Go Panthers!!

Good morning Panther Nation!!  Last night, the Panther family opened District 18-4A action against Anahuac.  The Lady Panthers took the field first and delivered a thrilling 1-0 victory.  Freshman Indira Samano tapped in a pass from junior Jennifer Gallegos in the 14th minute.  A tense moment in the final few minutes was alleviated by junior goalkeeper Paige Nugent when she made a penalty kick save to preserve the win for the Lady Panthers.

The Panthers followed up the ladies with a 2-1 victory.  Sophomore Jesus Landaverde used another long free kick situation to find Hector Villarreal in the box.  Villarreal easily laid the ball off to sophomore Giovanni Lopez for a 5th minute score and a 1-0 lead.  Anahuac would come back in the 25th minute to level the game and the first half would end 1-1.  The second half was a probing affair by Liberty until the 73rd minute.  A quickly taken corner kick by Giovanni Lopez found junior Eduardo Diaz, who put the ball into the back of the net for the game winning goal.The Lady Panthers are at home Friday and will be hosting Hardin-Jefferson.  The Panthers will be traveling to Sour Lake on Friday to take on Hardin-Jefferson.

Last night, the Liberty soccer program was in full swing, with the Lady Panthers hosting Humble at Memorial Stadium and the Panthers traveling to Dayton.  The Lady Panthers took a huge early season victory behind a "hat-trick" (3 goals scored) from freshman Indira Samano.  Fellow Lady Panther Jessica Hernandez added 2 assists to help Samano with her scoring flurry in the 3-0 victory over Humble.  The Panthers played a very physical and fast match against Dayton that entertained the crowd for the full 80 minutes of action.  Dayton got on the board first and carried a 1-0 lead into halftime. 

 The Panthers leveled the score at the 50 minute mark from a 60 yd Jesus Landaverde free kick that found a sprinting Giovanni Lopez for the score.  The Broncos would push ahead several minutes later and the remainder of the match was a fast paced back and forth, with a 2-1 finish for Dayton.The Lady Panthers travel to Dayton on Friday and the Panthers host Crosby on Friday at Memorial Stadium with a 5 pm JV and 7 pm Varsity start time.  Go Panthers!!

I'm happy to report, that despite the extreme cold, no one on the soccer team succumbed to the frigid temps and we had a very productive opening tournament.  The Junior Varsity went 2-0-1, beating the PNG 9th grade squad and Beaumont Westbrook, while drawing against the PNG JV.  GK Jace Valtierra posted back to back shutouts, while Freshmen Eric Espinosa and Hector Del Rio lead a great offensive attack that produced 8 goals over the three matches.  The Panther Varsity started with a Thursday match against the Bridge City Cardinals that produced 8 goals, in the 8-1 victory.  On Friday, the Panthers faced the #3 ranked LCM Bears.  A first half goal by junior forward Xavier Montez gave the Panthers a brief 1-0 lead until the Bears leveled before the half.  LCM went on to win 2-1 in a highly entertaining and competitive back and forth between the two sides.  On Saturday,the Panthers squared off against the #7 ranked Hudson Hornets on, what seemed to be, the frozen tundra.  The Hornets scored a late first half goal to enter the half 1-0.  With the wind at our back, the Panthers initiated several promising attacks in the second half, but failed to find the net and ultimately fell to the Hornets 2-0.  GK Everardo Rojas had several spectacular saves and many Panthers, including senior Marco Castellanos, junior Eduardo Diaz and sophomore Giovanni Lopez forced saves from the LCM and Hudson goalkeepers.  All in all, it was a great tournament for both the JV and Varsity squads.

The Lady Panthers host Humble January 10th at Memorial Stadium at 6pm.  The Panthers travel to Dayton for 4:30(JV) and 6:30(V) matches.  Go Panthers!!

On Saturday evening, the LHS Fine Arts Club, sponsored by FASOLT (The Fine Arts Society of Liberty Texas), enjoyed an evening of fine dining in downtown Houston followed by an amazing performance by the Rice University Shepherd School of Music Symphony Orchestra at Stude Hall.  The students were treated to an Italian 3-course dinner at Birraporetti's, which was an experience unto itself.  The dinner was sponsored by a donation from FASOLT member Beverly Davis.  Mrs. Street-Ely gave the students a very fine background presentation during dinner about the music they would be hearing that evening.  I also had a great opportunity to show the boys how to properly use an expensive cloth napkin (and not because I spilled lol).  I was able to watch the faces of several of the students while they enjoyed a world class performance from guest cellist, Josh Halpern.  They truly were on the edge of their seats.  Thanks go to Dr. Abshier for driving the bus in downtown Houston, Linda Street-Ely and her husband for interviewing the students, and Jimmy and Sandra Sterling, as well as my wife Kayla, for being there to help chaperone.  We look forward to taking more of these trips in the future.

This past Tuesday, your Lady Panthers, traveled to Livingston to compete in their 3rd track meet of the season. Coming off of spring break, it was hard to know how well our girls would compete. Immediately, they let everyone know that they were in it to win it. Upon completion of all field events, our 8th grade, had already racked up 95 points and 7th grade, with 65 points. Running against Livingston, Goodrich and Shepherd, both teams put on an outstanding display of competitiveness and teamwork. Your Lady Panthers worked hard and represented Liberty well. Both teams were able to bring home 1ST place plaques. This is huge for our girls, as they have used the momentum to push themselves even harder in this week's practice, to compete in next week's District meet and hopefully bring the District Title back to Liberty.  Please wish our girls luck as we travel to Huffman on Thursday, starting at 4.

Proclamation 

HONORING 2016 LIBERTY PANTHERS FOOTBALL TEAM 

Whereas, the hard work, dedication, sportsmanship, talent and exceptional team chemistry of the 2016 Liberty High School Panthers football team has enabled these students to advance the furthest they have been in the playoffs since the 1963 Liberty High School semi-finalist team; and 

Whereas, advancing as far as they did to the third round as Regional finalists in the 2016 state playoffs brought honor to Liberty High School and the county of Liberty with local and state attention; and

 Whereas, the Panthers were able to unite the community and draw fans from across Liberty and surrounding counties to follow their Cinderella story; and 

Whereas, Head Coach Chad Taylor and the entire coaching staff, team member parents, faculty and student body at Liberty High School were integral in guiding the team to their advancement in the playoffs through their unwavering support; and 

Now, therefore, I, Judge Jay Knight, County Judge of Liberty County and the Commissioner’s Court do hereby recognize and commend the Liberty High School Panthers and their 2016 team on their outstanding accomplishment this year; and 

Further, I urge all citizens in Liberty County to join me in recognizing and celebrating the team’s achievement and wish the members of this team continued success on the gridiron and in the classroom;

 I, Judge Jay Knight, do hereby declare the 13th of December in the Year of our Lord 2016 to be “Liberty Panther Day” throughout the county. Adopted, this 13th day of December, 2016.

LHS Football Players of the Week

about 1 year ago


Friday, October 14, 2016: Panthers vs. Hamshire-Fannett

We started off slow, but once we got it figured out, it was on.  The kids played through some early adversity and were able to get their 8th win of the season and remain undefeated.  The road gets tougher each week from this point on, your continued support for all the young people involved on Friday evenings is greatly appreciated.  I know this week is TVE, but we have our last home game of the season, we will be recognizing all of our seniors from the band, color guard, cheerleaders, prancers, and football team.

OFFENSIVE 

This week I couldn’t just give it to one person, we had several guys that were worthy of our Offensive Player of the Week.  QB JJ Slack was 8 of 11 passing for 200 yards and 3 TDs.  LJ Domain was on the end of 3 of the passes, as LJ had 3 receptions for 117 yards and 1 TD.  Alex Brown once again carried the load for the Panthers on the ground as he carried the ball 23 times for 254 yards and 2 TDs.

 Jarius Hill and Jeremiah Guillory also had touchdown receptions.  Jarius’ was from 16 yards out and Jeremiah had one from 28 yards out.  Tyris Williams also had a big night as he carried the ball only 3 times for 100 yards and a touchdown run of 65 yards.

 ** Offensively the Panthers had their best performance of the year totaling 609 yards of offense, 409 rushing and 200 yards passing.

                 JJ Slack 

               LJ Domain

                Alex Brown

DEFENSIVE 

Tyris Williams and Meril Bunfill are this weeks Defensive Players of the week.  Tyris had 6 tackles and 1 sack, and Meril had 5 tackles and 2 tackles for a loss.   Defensively the Panthers on gave up 118 yards total.

                            Tyris Williams

                                 Meril Bunfill


Friday, September 23, 2016: Panthers @ Shepherd

What a week for the Liberty Panthers.  Not only the the Lady Panthers sweep Shepherd in volleyball on Friday, the Panthers football program swept Shepherd as well.  7th grade, 32-6,  8th grade, 28-6, JV  20-6, and the Varsity 24-22.  I want to say thank you to all of you who made the trip to Shepherd and witnessed one of the best finishes to a high school football game. 

Alex Brown - OFFENSIVE

Alex Brown is once again the Offensive Player of the Week with his performance.   Alex ran for 206 yards on 22 carries and had a touchdown run of 27 yards.  Alex had 50 yards rushing on our last possession that help set up our game winning field goal.

Meril Bunfill - DEFENSIVE

For the second week in a row, Meril Bunfill is our Defensive Player of the Week.  Meril is constantly getting double and triple teamed which allow his teammates to make tackles.  His ability to once again dominate the center has led the offenses to change their blocking scheme to account for him, therefore, freeing up other defenders.

Jesus Landeverde - SPECIAL TEAMS

The star of the week, our Special Teams Player of the Week, is sophomore Jesus Landeverde.  By now,  I am sure you guys have seen the kick on facebook or twitter, but it was Jesus’ 41 yard field goal with no time left on the clock that sealed the deal for the Panthers 24-22 victory over Shepherd. 


Friday, September 16, 2016: Panthers @ Woodville

K.K. Antoine - OFFENSIVE

K.K. Antoine is this weeks Offensive Player of the Week, after his 3 carries for 132 yards and 2 touchdowns. His first touchdown was on a 69 yard run in the 1st quarter, followed by a 62 yard touchdown in the 2nd quarter. 

Meril Bunfil - DEFENSIVE

This weeks Defensive Player of the Week is Meril Bunfil. Meril was instrumental in our defense’s ability to stop a very good Woodville offense. He was able to drive the center back, cutting off their puller on the counters. 


Friday, September 9, 2016: Panthers vs. Coldspring

Alex Brown - OFFENSIVE


Senior Alex Brown, is this weeks Offensive POW.  Alex carried the ball 30 times for 152 yards and 3 touchdowns.  As it stands right now, Alex is the leading rusher in district 12-4a with 401 yards through 3 games.

LJ Domain - DEFENSIVE


Junior LJ Domain, is this weeks Defensive POW.  LJ has played really well for us this season and has not allowed a reception to his side.  He was able to pick off two Coldspring pass attempts, both of which did not count as we received penalties on both plays, not on LJ I might add. We will normally line LJ up on the other teams best receiver.  


Friday, September 2, 2016: Panthers vs. Cleveland 

J.J. Slack - SPECIAL TEAMS

Sophomore, J.J. Slack is this weeks Special Teams Player of the Week for his job of punting. J.J. had never punted going into this season and Friday night was his first time to punt this year. He had 3 punts Friday night for 114 yards, averaging 38 yards per punt. His longest punt was 43 yards. 


Tyris Williams - DEFENSIVE 

Senior, Tyris Williams is this weeks Defensive Player of the Week. Tyris had a tremendous game all around. Defensively, Tyris, had 18 tackles, 1 assist, 2 TFL, 3 cause fumbles and 1 fumble recovery. He added to that performance by rushing the ball 11 times for 103 yards and a touchdown. 

              Justice Fregia

              Justin Jacobs

             Robert Wyckoff

         John R. Moorman

             James Tousha

           Keegan Turner

The Offensive Players of the Week for the Cleveland game goes to several young men that mean the world to us in the field house. These young men make up our starting offense. These guys combined for over 20 pancake blocks on Friday and have helped us rush for more than 550 yards in 2 games.

These 3 young men, along with their teammates traveled south Friday and took care of business with a 35-0 victory over the Anahuac Panthers.  Chris Goebel, a senior, had a tremendous game on special teams with 2 tackles and a fumble caused, which we scored on the very next play.  Dylan Jordan, a junior, was named the defensive POW for his performance which included: 5 tackles, 2 assist, 1 tackle for a loss, 1 QB hurry, and 6 technique points.  His effort and desire to get to the football really sparked our defense.  Lastly, Alex Brown, a senior, was named the offensive POW with his performance of 15 carries for 133 yards and 2 touchdowns.  Alex is our workhorse and time and time again he was dragging defenders all over the field.  We thank you guys for all of your support and look forward to seeing you guys this week as the Panthers take on the Cleveland Indians Friday at War Memorial Stadium.
