The Tyler Lee Red Raiders have put together two impressive wins in a row, and have jumped up two spots to No. 2 in this week's ETSN.fm East Texas Class 6A/5A poll.
The Tatum Eagles responded to a tough home loss to Gilmer two weeks ago with a resounding 41-14 win over Liberty-Eylau in their first road game of the year last Friday night.
There were no changes to the top five in this week's ETSN.fm East Texas Class 3A poll, but two new teams entered the rankings.
The ETSN.fm East Texas Class 2A/Private Schools poll remained exactly the same as last week, partly because four teams were off last Friday night, and also because the other six teams scored big wins.
