For years, the foursome of John Tyler, Longview, Lufkin and Tyler Lee shared the same district. They no longer are guaranteed to annually play one another, but they all four share something else in common.

The former East Texas 5A district mates constitute the top four in the final ETSN.fm East Texas Class 6A/5A poll of the season. They made sure of that with wins in their respective season finales.

John Tyler (8-2) held onto the top spot after a 44-14 rout of Nacogdoches, Longview (8-2) remained at No. 2 following its 42-28 defeat of Hallsville, Lufkin stayed third after a 51-6 pounding of Jacksonville, and Tyler Lee -- East Texas' only 6A member -- is still No. 4 after a record-setting 75-27 demolition of Garland Naaman Forest.

Nacogdoches (7-3) dropped one spot to No. 6, while Texas High (7-3) took Nac's place at No. 5 after a 30-7 win over Mount Pleasant.

Marshall (6-4), which clinched a playoff berth with a 36-27 victory over Sulphur Springs, jumped up three spots to No. 7. Sulphur Springs (5-5) ironically moved up one position to No. 8, ahead of Hallsville (6-4) and Whitehouse (5-5), which dropped a 27-24 overtime decision to Lindale last Friday night.
