In this week's installment of the podcast, our Clint Buckley and Mike Graham rehash what was an eventful week across East Texas, and then look ahead to what it is an important Friday night for a handful of teams.

The show begins with a look back at Nacogdoches' surprising defeat of rival Lufkin, John Tyler's statement-making rout of Whitehouse, Chapel Hill's crazy comeback on Tatum, Gladewater's gutty victory at Kilgore, and Alto's total domination of Tenaha.

Clint and Mike then discuss the two biggest matchups in one of the area's most high-profile districts. Nacogdoches looks to take the next step at perennial power Ennis, and Whitehouse and Lufkin meet in what could be a season-defining encounter as the second week of 16-5A play begins.

The podcast wraps with a segment on the Queen Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week.
