There are a couple of East Texas teams in action Thursday, October 14th, but the bulk of our East Texas teams are playing Friday and Saturday.  It's hard to believe, but most teams only have two or three games left in the regular season.

The season has been an exciting one to watch so far, and many of our East Texas teams are ranked in the top ten.

The Longview Lobos had a streak of wins going until they ran into trouble against Highland Park last weekend and lost that road game in Dallas 21-16.  The only other loss on the season came against Denton Ryan in the first game on August 28th, and that was also away from the Lobos' home turf.  Longview plays Sherman Friday night at Lobo Stadium before heading into a bye week.  Longview is ranked #7 in Class 5A-Division 1.

Kilgore is ranked #6 in Class 4A-Divison 1.

Carthage and Gilmer are ranked #1 and 2 in Class 4A-Divison 2.

Other East Texas teams to be ranked in the top ten include Newton, Waksom, Tatum, Tenaha, and Timpson.

Good luck this week everybody!
