Longview — Jack Stallard is the Sports Editor of the Longview News-Journal.
He talked with KETK Sports Director Danny Elzner about the Friday Football Fever Game of the Week.
Top-ranked Gilmer will travel to Chapel Hill.
Here's what Stallard said about the matchup.
"Gilmer played for a state championship last year. I thought they were a year ahead of schedule. They've done nothing to prove me wrong. They've scored 57, 66, 60, 54, and their season low is 52. Offensively, just a great football team. Defensively, they gave up 14 last week. Just a solid team top to bottom."
"Chapel Hill was a sleeper team going into the season. The Bulldogs have played a brutal schedule. They've lost to Lindale, Whitehouse and Carthage. But they've beaten Palestine and Henderson. They can put up some numbers too."
