Longview, TX (KETK) He's the Sports Editor of the Longview News-Journal.
Jack Stallard spoke with KETK's Danny Elzner about some big high school basketball games coming up.
"This is going to be a fun weekend. Teams are battling for seeding. For a couple of teams, it's win or go home. Longview will play Horn Friday night at Tyler Lee. The Lobos had a chance to win the district. You want to win this game for momentum. Pine Tree and Hallsville really don't like each other. They'll play Friday night at Hallsville. That's win or you're done. Whoever wins that is in the playoffs. Whoever loses, it's baseball season. Spring Hill and Kilgore will play Friday at Kilgore. This is a battle for second place. Spring Hill has been ranked. Kilgore started the season slowly because of the football playoffs. But they really came on in district play. It's a good tune-up for the playoffs."
