Longview — He's the Sports Editor of the Longview News-Journal.
Jack Stallard spoke with KETK Sports Director Danny Elzner about a big event coming up this weekend.
"It's one of the most challenging and most rewarding things we do at the Longview News-Journal. We locked ourselves in a room and selected the etvaristy.com All-East Texas football team.
We take nominations from coaches. We look at the stats.
We try to put together the best All-Star team from our coverage area. It stretches from Waskom to Athens to Texarkana to Lufkin. It's a huge area. There are a lot of good teams and players in that area.
We pick a coach of the year, an offensive and defensive player of the year and newcomers of the year. We have a first team, second team and honorable mention picks.
We think it's the best of the best.
You're going to recognize a lot of names from a lot of great schools that did some damage in the playoffs.
It will come out in Sunday's paper and it will be online at etvarsity.com.
I think it's something people look forward to every year."
