There were a few changes in this week's Associated Press high school football rankings as it pertains to East Texas.
God, family and football are cornerstones of life in the state of Texas. The Pittsburg Pirates may define those ideals more than any team in the state.
There aren't too many more fierce rivals in the Ark-La-Tex region than Texas High and Arkansas High, two schools located in the same city but on opposite sides of the Texas and Arkansas border.
The two meet again Friday night on the Arkansas side in the ETSN.fm + Dairy Queen Game of the Week.
Friday's game between Longview and Lufkin was full of top-notch defensive performances, but Lobos senior defensive back Ameron Dean stood out among the rest.
With a second-quarter interception in the red zone and a blocked PAT in the game's last minute that otherwise likely would have sent the game into overtime, Dean delivered a big 21-20 win to Longview. It's good enough for the first ETSN.fm + Dairy Queen Defensive Player of the Week honor of the season.
