There's a change at the top of the ETSN.fm East Texas Class 6A/5A poll after just one week, as the Longview Lobos have vaulted to the top spot.

Longview, which was ranked third to begin the season, earned a thrilling 21-20 season-opening victory over arch-rival Lufkin on Friday night. The Panthers, despite the loss, shot up two spots to No. 2.

Preseason No. 1 John Tyler fell two spots to third after its 35-17 loss to Plano, while Tyler Lee, which was ranked second last week, stumbled to fifth following a 59-35 defeat at Keller Fossil Ridge.

There was one new entrant into the top 10 as Lindale debuted at No. 9 following its impressive 27-0 shutout of Chapel Hill last Friday night.
