The Little League World Series is down to the final few teams to play for the championship in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. East Texas will have it's first ever representation this year from Lufkin. And these boys are good.

The Lufkin All Stars defeated Texas West, 2-1, to earn a birth in the championship tournament according to KLTV.

Now the boys from Lufkin will on the biggest stage in their sport.
