The Associated Press released it's 1A All-State high school football teams today, with several East Texas players noticeably absent. In fact, not one member of Big Sandy's 14-1 state championship contending team made the list, not even honorable mention. The entire lineup of East Texans on the list included one player, Rivercrest running back Bradley Rollen. No Big Sandy, no Harleton, no Joaquin. 10 players on teams Big Sandy has beaten have made the team, and five players from Stratford, the team Big Sandy will play for the state championship, made the list. No doubt, that will serve as motiviation for the Wildcats.
