Jack Stallard talked with KETK Sports Director Danny Elzner about the matchup this Friday night between Pine Tree and Kilgore.
"This should be an interesting matchup. Pine Tree is 2-0 for the first time since 2007. They had some distractions with the coaching situation but that's settled. The kids should be able to focus on football. They're going to face a really tough Kilgore team, ranked fifth in 3A. The Bulldogs opened with a big win over Marshall. They've had a week off to prepare for this high-powered Pine Tree offense. Kilgore coach Mike Wood does a great job with the Bulldogs. You give him an extra week to prepare and he's tough to beat. I'm anxious to see how things are settled on the field."
