TYLER, TEXAS (KLTV) - It's almost high school football in East Texas.

From Lufkin to Mt. Pleasant, Malakoff to Marshall, the way sports is covered, especially football, is about to change.

"You name it, we're going to have it," said Chase Colston, of the East Texas Sports Newtork.

"I think viewers are going to see something they have never seen before," added Pat Stacey, General Manager of KLTV.

"It all began today, with the launching of the East Texas Sports Network.

Dedicated to bringing you the best in East Texas sports.

"We're going to have the best stories, highlights, interviews and opinions that money can buy on ETSN.fm," said Colston.

But they won't be doing it alone.

ETSN and KLTV have joined together, to bring you the best is high school coverage both on the web and on the air.

"The Red Zone on KLTV is a tradition, right along with high school football and we're going to be able to magnify what  people get out of the KLTV sports program," said Stacey.

"Especially on Friday nights with the way we're going to keep up on ETSN and going straight into the Red Zone post game show," added Colston. We just couldnt imagine a better relationship."

A relationship that will be the dream team of high school sports coverage.

"When you think of a 'Dream Team,' you think of powers that compliment each other and that is what we have here," said Stacey.

"We just could not imagine a better relationship to put it all in one place where people can get everything they about high school football in one night and one place," said Colston. "I can't wait, this is just the beginning."
