The second round of the football playoffs is here, and our guys Clint Buckley and Mike Graham break it all down on this week's edition of the podcast.

Several East Texas programs face big challenges from schools outside the area, and have the opportunity to make a statement.

Longview and John Tyler figure to be tested by Mansfield Summit (10-1) and Mansfield Lake Ridge (11-0), respectively. Athens tackles unbeaten Kennedale, Pittsburg faces state power Argyle, and Jasper takes on defending state champion and top-ranked Navasota.

In 3A, White Oak and Malakoff each square off with state championship contenders Pottsboro (11-0) and Cameron Yoe (10-1), respectively.

If East Texas schools can grab a couple of wins over these programs, things could set up nicely for them as the playoffs progress.

And the show wouldn’t be compete without recognizing the + Dairy Queen Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week.
