There are a handful of canceled games again this week, but most are still on.  East Texas has two of the top 25 ranked teams in the state!

The high school football season is young but it's as exciting as ever, and two East Texas teams are ranked among the Top 25 in the state.  MaxPreps has Austin Westlake ranked #1 overall, and Carthage is in the top ten at #9.  Gilmer is ranked #22.

Gilmer and Carthage will meet later this month, and it's hard to believe, but that will be the next game for Carthage.  They're idle for the next two weeks and they'll pick up the schedule again when they travel to Gilmer on September 24th.  That will be a wild one.

After Elysian Fields and Winona played a rare Thursday night game, everyone else is getting set for Friday Night Lights.

Can we give some love to the high school bands too?  Those halftime shows are amazing.  Band members put in just as much practice time as the football players do, and they help make the Friday night atmosphere what it is.  This will be another fun one!
