Greatest EAST Texas Rivalry?

Recommended Posts

Tatum and SH were rivals in the 90s. Not so much now. We ain't really had a rival since the 2000s. We had a nice little rivalry going with Carthage before Surratt showed up lol. Before we got turf they came and painted a red CHS on our 50 and spread bird seeds all over the home bleachers. Then we beat them 17-0 with Stephen Hodge. We traded wins for a bit for about 6 or so games. But now, we don't exactly have a rival anymore. 

Lead them in overall series.

Hey Gladewater hasn’t defeated Gilmer in twenty years and we are still calling that a rivalry.

I was thinking the same as well.

You’ve obviously been to one of these games. It is an intense rivalry regardless of who wins. Both teams leave feeling like they been in a fight. Neither team wants to lose to the other and even in down years either team has a chance. 

Honestly, when these two get together you never know who will win. No matter what the records are.

That’s exactly right. The Buckeyes have dominated the series of late but overall it is fairly even I believe.  Also even tho the record has been lopsided recently the games have all been highly competitive.

I haven't attended all of the ones listed above....but of the ones I've witnessed personally:

1.  Gilmer Vs. Gladewater
2.  Longview Vs. Lufkin
3.  Kilgore Vs. Henderson
4.  Elysian Fields Vs. Waskom
5.  JT Vs. Tyler Lee
 

A few I want to list....but....they need some spice before I'd add them to the above list

JT Vs. Lufkin
Marshall Vs. Longview
Henderson Vs. Carthage
Longview Vs. JT
Marshall Vs. Pine Tree

just my opinion.  
 

Carthage OWNS Henderson....😜

In the last 20 years the Marshall - PT rivalry has been in the same boat as the Longview - Marshall rivalry...…..too one sided to really count as a true rivalry. Marshall - PT has had a few more competitive games.....but not many more.

Is hallsville / pine tree still a rivalry game. I know it used to be.

Strong dislike but unfortunately gets downplayed because of mediocrity. If both could sustain winning , then another story.

Henderson and Kilgore get my nod for East Texas. 

Yes, always a classic between these two!

Malakoff and Kerens used to have a good rivalry. We haven't played in years. Teague and Malakoff is about the only one we got now. These two aren't compared to some of the others but Teague/koff have had some heated games before and best game being in 16', imo. One of the best I've seen in person for a 3a regular season game.

T03, I agree. Everyone is all good with each other until they turn on those lights and then it’s on. I agree on the 2016 game as much as it pains me. Y’all deserved that one. Held Teague on four downs inside the 10 with less than two minutes to play. Then drove 99 yards and 35 inches to score with seconds left. The results changed the path to the playoffs for both teams and y’all took advantage of it.

Joaquin/ Tenaha has been a much better rivalry the last few years than has Joaquin/ Shelbyville. Sadly, we don’t play the Tigers in ‘20 or ‘21. I don’t know when the last season was that we didn’t play them. I can’t find anyone who remembers. 

1942 & 1943 during WWII

I’ll have to take your word for it, but that sounds accurate to me. I hate it. 2 senior classes from each school will miss out on the rivalry their last two years.

They need to restart this rivalry that was a long time ago.  Gilmer vs Gladewater will be a good one this year.  I would like to see the Morris county showdown.

Yep, I couldn't agree more. A lot of good moments in 16' for for both teams. You guys got your payback in 17', just straight up ran on us. Still can't believe we had a 3 way tie that year. Y'alls O-line 16' and 17' was a beast. 17' I think was the better one with that rb. What was his name? That kid was a beast. I'm glad that we are back in the same district again, should be fun.

Quentin Coleman, he is playing for Tarleton State. We are going through some lean times right now. Coach Osborn coaching ability is keep us afloat right now.We just don’t have the horses we once had but lookout in a couple years.

I know this happens every few years so why not start it now? What is the best high schools rivalry in East Texas? 
Here are a few that come to mind

 

Lufkin vs Nac 

 

Unfortunately, this game is played every year but it isn't a rivalry for football. Both teams have to win games for it to be a rivalry!!!

 

Men's basketball yes still a rivalry!!

JAX: Palestine.... yeah.... kind of died down after Pal went 4A after AD graduated in 2004. I don’t ever recall CH as a rival. Henderson was a big rival in the 70s but not so much since then. So many of the old district rivals went 4A. Yeah, Kilgore in the early 2000s was big..... WH in mid-2000s when they were turning it around. But we dont really have any “rival” like LV/Lufkin or Gilmer /Gladewater. 

I would say Nac has a better rivalry with Jax then they do LP.  Jax and Nac seem to play crazy close games and they have been deciding a playoff spot in the district the last 7-8 years. High Scoring multiple OT games. They also seem to be tied to each other for district realignment as well.

Good points, Nac! I agree we’ve had some amazing games. The 12 OT game in 2010 still a national “record” even though the stupid point system caused it. The 5OT game in 2013 (2012?) at TBowl was better to me because it was a legit 5 OTs.


The 2016 game at Nac was a heartbreaker for the Dragons. Y’all are playoff- bound with 2:30 left in game, y’all had us 4th and 10 at our own 20. We converted by three inches (right in front of me on sideline).  then Jax went the rest of the way with the winning score with a few seconds left.
 

Just some amazing games...

12 OT game was exhausting!! 5 OT game was fun until the 5th OT!!:) When we lost!!

 

The 2016 game was just another example of Nac getting to the last game of the season with a chance at the playoffs and not sealing the deal. Jax scored the game tieing TD with like 43 seconds left and then got the 2Pt conversion to win. I maybe misremembering but Nac had to win by 10 and was up 11 at the 243 mark. Gave up 14 points in the last 243.
