Jack Stallard is the Sports Editor of the Longview News-Journal.
He likes White Oak's chances at the state tournament.
Stallard said, "White Oak is headed to the state tournament. This is as much success as they've had in years. It's their first trip since the '50s.
They've had some teams come close. Ron Boyett is a fantastic coach. They have not lost since December. They've won 30 straight. They're ranked #2. They have to play the #1 ranked team. That's the way the UIL put them in there to start out. I like the team, I like their chances in Austin. I'd really be happy for Ron Boyett and for White Oak if they went down there and won a state championship."
