Special signing day at Bishop Gorman

In the last 23 years, Reverend Jerome Milton has helped 178 Bishop Gorman students land athletic scholarships.  Six of those students were honored Friday, one of which brought Reverend Milton to tears.

His daughter Lakesha Milton signed a track and field scholarship with Colby Sawyer College in New Hampshire.   Milton adopted Lakesha 17 years ago.

"I took her from the floor of child protective services this date 17 years ago," said Rev. Milton.  "It was overwhelming for me emotionally because she had been helpless, hopeless and forgotten. But God brought her into our lives and we adopted her at five and a half months and then God brought her to this point and carried her to points that she never would have thought. So it was very special to have given a child an opportunity to make it to more lofty significance."

    Red Zone Rundown: Lufkin looks to get past first round playoff hurdle

    Jackson is back for Lufkin.Jackson is back for Lufkin.

    Like Longview, Lufkin is always talented. Before the Panthers begin District 12-6A action, they'll play a loaded East Texas schedule featuring the Lobos in week 1, followed by Nacogdoches and John Tyler. Normally a 7 and 4 campaign would be considered a success, but not in Panther nation. In fact, despite making the playoffs every year, Lufkin hasn't advanced past the first round since 2012.

    Our Red Zone Rundown continues with the other two Class 6A programs in East Texas. In District 11-6A with John Tyler and Tyler Lee, who we featured Monday night, Longview figures to challenge for the league title in 2017. In fact, the Lobos and Lions shared the district championship a year ago. It's no secret, Longview is used to winning and it does so by running the football and playing sound defense.
