From what I saw, they picked one person from East Texas town. So, if you aren’t the best in your school history, you don’t make the list.

Well that doesn't hold water either ... they certainly didn't pick the best player from Lufkin or Garrison  ...

No doubt. Some great names on this list but R.T. From Groveton was something else from what I have seen.
 

Alto doesn’t even have their best one on the list.   Steve Lofton

I lived in palestine the year they won state champs in 1964 . I went to the game i was only 3 years old.My dad told me

quiet a few stories about Super Bill ...and said he was an(quarterback) amazing athlete. Our station wagon was loaded with kids around the neighborhood headed to state game :)  I slept most of time and just don't remember much at that age.

Would Darrell Green qualify? Or if you want to go back a few years, Raymond Berry and Gene Stallings who both played for Paris High at the same time.

Not based on the write ups in the LNJ poll/article .....  most of them include their career achievements .... I think they just threw it together and didn't really do a lot of research .... if they had, there is no way you leave out Ken Houston .... he has to be at least top 3 all-time and most of the people they included pale in comparison to him ....

Jeremiah Trotter, Hooks probably should have made the list.  Bam Morris, Cooper also a name I noticed not on there.  No Dez Bryant either. 

 

No offense but Cooper is not in East Texas
