2015 Football Preview

No. 1 John Tyler
The John Tyler Lions are back on top of the mountain as one of East Texas' elite programs, and their recent track record speaks to that. JT has earned the top spot on the ETSN.fm preseason Class 6A/5A poll for the second consecutive year.
Top 25 Games Of 2015: No. 5, Longview At Marshall
Football environments just don't get any better than Longview-Marshall games. The fanfare has always been there, but the on-field delivery has lagged behind in recent years.
We believe the Mavericks are back on the map and, consequently, the rivalry is on pace to return to its elite status. Longview …
No. 2: Gilmer
There's nowhere else for Gilmer to go. The Buckeyes won the 2014 Class 4A Division II state championship last season.
That being said, they can get back. We think that's a realistic possibility.
First-year head coach Matt Turner's squad will begin the year ranked No. 2 in ETSN.fm's…
Usual Suspects
How many districts in Texas can match seven state championships since 2004? Well, there is at least one, and it resides in East Texas.
Between District 9-4A DIvision I heavyweights Carthage, Kilgore, Chapel Hill, and Henderson, the combined playoff record of that foursome since 2007 is a ridiculous 7…
No. 2 Tyler Lee
The Tyler Lee Red Raiders carry the flag as East Texas' only member of Class 6A, and for the first time since 2010, Lee reached the postseason last year. And with a talented nucleus of offensive talent returning, the Raiders begin the season No. 2 in the ETSN.fm preseason Class 6A/5A poll.
ETSN.fm Class 4A Preseason Poll: No. 3, Gladewater
Teams at this level of the poll usually start hot and finish the season capable of beating anyone. Defending Class 4A Division II champion Gilmer started the campaign at this spot a year ago.
We think the No. 3 spot in the ETSN.fm Class 4A Preseason Poll is a good place for Gladewater to begin the ye…
Top 25 Games Of 2015: No. 6, Nacogdoches at Whitehouse
District 16-5A was so tough last year that the race was over with one week still to play.
We think it could be that way again this season with the Dragons and Wildcats once again sitting on the bubble as Halloween weekend begins. No disrespect to them, that's just how it is with John Tyler and Ennis …
No. 3: Longview
The Longview Lobos are among the winningest programs in all of East Texas over the last decade-plus, so it should come as no surprise they check in at No. 3 in the ETSN.fm preseason Class 6A/5A poll.
