Longview — Jack Stallard is the Sports Editior of the Longview News-Journal.
KETK Sports Director Danny Elzner asked him about the Dream Team.
"This will be the seventh year for the preseason Dream Team. The Longview and Tyler papers decided to do this seven years ago to kickoff the season, get everybody excited and give everyone something to talk about going into the season. We pick the best of the best. We pick the best players at each position, one team, no honorable mention, no second team. These are the top guys. It's an exciting process. We lock ourselves in a room and hash it out. There's so much talent in East Texas that it's hard to do. We battled over and over. It took a long time to get it narrowed down. I think we've got the best team out there. There are a lot of great names from the past. Patrick Mahomes from Whitehouse was our preseason offensive MVP last year. Josh Walker from Gilmer was our preseason defensive MVP. Those guys had great seasons. We've been counting it down. We'll unveil it on August 2. I hope everybody gets excited about it like we are."
