I would rather not go into many details at this time, but, due to a tragedy within the New Boston football program, the Lions scrimmage on Thursday night against Gilmer has been canceled.

Both Coach Traylor and Coach Thomas knew I would be posting this information.

I've contacted numerous coaches in Class 5-A, 4-A, 3-A, and 2-A in East Texas in case they want to add Gilmer to a three-way scrimmage, but, that's basically irrelevant at this time.

Again, I just don't feel comfortable giving out more information at this time. I'm sure, as the day progresses, more information will become available.

Meanwhile, please keep New Boston in your prayers.

Thank you.

My thoughts and prayers certainly go out to the New Boston community.  I don't know what happened, but whatever it was must be serious.
