Just like it's been all season -- most seasons, in fact -- the traditional East Texas Class 2A powers remained atop the rankings in ETSN.fm's final weekly regular-season poll.

Newton and Tatum, which each enter the postseason at 10-0, were once again ranked in the top two spots. Defending state finalist Daingerfield (7-3) was No. 3 again, one spot ahead of district rival New Boston (9-1).

The final six spots belonged to teams that have each won at least nine games, proving that East Texas' 2A depth is as strong as ever as we look ahead to the 2013 playoffs.
