It seems like time is definitely flying because we've already reached Week 11 in the Texas High School football season and its time for the playoffs. Just about every East Texas high school is in action this upcoming weekend including both Tyler Legacy and John Tyler High Schools as well as the Longview Lobos.


The Bi-district playoffs are the first step towards the dream of playing in AT&T Stadium at the end of the season. While some teams will enjoy the advantage of playing at home, others will have to travel all across the state to prove their worth.
