LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

The high school football season will start in just 71 days.

There are a lot of changes to the football landscape with UIL creating a Division I and II during the regular season for 5A. Teams have also been shuffled around due to changing enrollment numbers.

As the season draws closer, Dave Campbell's Texas Football Magazine has released their annual preseason poll for all the divisions.

6A is still not revealed but at the 5A ranks, The Lufkin Panthers came in at number 1 beating out defending Div.I champion Highland Park and defending Div.II Champion College Station.

They were not the only East Texas team ranked.

In 4A Div.I Carthage starts the year off at the number 2 spot and they are joined by Henderson at number 8. At 4A Div.II, Gilmer comes in at number 3. Pleasant Grove at number 5 and Liberty-Eylau at number 8.

In 3A Div.I Atlanta is the only area team and they picked up the number 4 ranking. In Div.II, Newton is the heavy favorite at number 1. They are joined by Waskom at number 6 and Daingerfield at number 9.

In the 2A Div.I ranks, we will find the San Augustine Wolves at number 6. In Div.II, Lovelady picked up the number 9 ranking.

The full Dave Campbell Texas Football Magazine will hit stores next week.

The season kicks off on August 31.
