Longview (KETK) — Jack Stallard is the Sports Editor of the Longview News-Journal.
Sunday, the Longview News-Journal will publish the Zone.
Stallard spoke with KETK Sports Director Danny Elzner about this big high school football issue.
"We're always in the zone around here but this is a different kind of thing now. We're talking football.
The high school football season starts in a little over a week and we're going to be the first publication to preview everything locally.
The Preview Zone will come out on Sunday. You'll have time to preview the teams before the season starts on the 29th. It's a 52-page magazine.
We preview 15 districts, four six-man teams locally, and a total of 100 teams will be previewed in the Zone this year. In our cover story, we visit with some of the top recruits in the state and the nation right in our East Texas back yard.
We talk to those kids and their coaches about he recruiting has changed over the years.
We've got district predictions, the top players in the districts, history, polls and coaches records. Everything you need to get ready for the season.
Then we'll come back on Friday the 29th for the first of 11 weekly issues of the Zone. We're ready for the football season."
