2015 East Texas Football Playoffs

The Best Ever
HOUSTON -- Friends and family leaned down the walls at NRG Stadium in Houston to greet their once and current state champions.
It was one of the best scenes you could imagine. A place where love, belief, support and accomplishment all met...
Mutual Opponent
Today's the day. Waskom will face Franklin at 8 p.m. in the Class 3A Division II state championship to close the East Texas football season.
Pound-For-Pound
WASKOM -- Fourteen and 15-year-olds will never get tired of seeing news crews arrive on their campus. That's just a fact.
It's another opportunity for them to find themselves on the 10 o'clock news if they pause the broadcast at just the right time and search the frame. Or, i…
Waskom Goes To State
MINERAL WELLS -- Waskom kept its season alive with 14-play, 85-yard championship drive. 
Running back Chan Amie’s second rushing touchdown of the night from a yard out with 1:06 left lifted Waskom to a 28-24 win against Idalou at Mineral Wells' Ram Stadium in the Class …
Mineola Falls One Game Short
GRAND PRAIRIE -- Jeremiah Crawford threw for 239 yards in Friday's Class 3A Division I state semifinals playoff game against Brock.
That's not the number you want to see out of Mineola. Its offensive production was inversed.
Brock dominated time of possession, ran at will, stopped the Yellowjackets' o…
New Kids On The Block
Mineola pulled away from AT&T Stadium disappointed about the outcome of the 2014 Class 3A Division I state championship game between it and Cameron Yoe.
At the same time, with essential players all over the field in that game being sophomores, there probably was some comfort that on…

Staying Power
Any coach will tell you it takes a lot to sustain a winning program. The victories don't pile up as cleanly in reality as they do in Saturday's sports section.
What on earth then does it take to pull a program -- even a program with athletic potential -- away from the pack?
Waskom's Whitney Keeling kn…

Mineola Runs Over Sunnyvale
 
ROYSE CITY -- The best thing about Mineola quarterback Jeremiah Crawford and running back Chantz Perkins is that nothing seems impossible.
It's fathomable they can go 99 yards with the ball in their hands. It's likely they'll break off multiple 50-yard runs per game. It's becoming more probable they…
