Longview (KETK) — Jack Stallard is the Sports Editor of the Longview News-Journal.
He talked with KETK Sports Director Danny Elzner about the Lobos and the Pirates.
What about Longview?
"This is going to be a good football team as usual. They basically dropped down in classification by not moving up to 6A. That gives Longview a really good boost. They're ranked third in the early polls. They've got a tough schedule. They'll scrimmage at Ennis. They'll play at Lufkin, they'll host John Tyler and they'll go to Shreveport for the Battle on the Border. I look for them to have a great season."
What about Pine Tree?
"Last year they started out strong. They did some good things on offense. You throw in new coach David Collins and there's a lot of excitement at Pine Tree. They'll scrimmage against Gladewater. They'll open against Jacksonville. They'll host Gilmer and then they'll visit Kilgore. It will be tough on the Pirates early but they've got some good things going."
