KILGORE, Texas (KETK) — An old rivalry will be renewed at noon this Friday at AT&T Stadium when the Kilgore Bulldogs take on the Carthage Bulldogs for the 3-A Division 2 State Championship.
These two squads scrimmage one another before nearly every season, but this year, they will be playing one another with everything on the line.
It's a battle of two different offensive philosophies, with Kilgore looking to pound the rock on the ground with star running back Kevrin Justice, while Carthage would love nothing more than to keep the ball in hands of their senior QB Blake Bogenschutz.
Both teams are red, both share the same mascot, and both have a devoted community behind them, but only one can bring home that state championship.
