TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - The Tyler Lions escaped after a five-overtime win against Marshall to open the season at Rose Stadium. It is first-year coach Rashaun Woods winning debut game.

Winning 38-36, now the Lions look to host the cross-town rivals Tyler Legacy.

The Red Raiders, like the Lions, have a new head coach in Beau Trahan. Legacy lost to the Lufkin Panthers 31-7.

Another layer for this Smith County rivalry is both coaches are friends from their Oklahoma days. So that’s an added twist to this rivalry that enters a new era.
