Fan base vote

Does Kilgore High School football have the best fanbase in Texas in 4A? In ANY classification?

That’s being debated right now by Texas Sports Life. Kilgore is in the final four, and as of Thursday morning at 8:30 East Texas time, there’s eight hours left to vote.

Texas Sports Life started a contest on its Twitter account – @TXSportsLife – of the 64 “best” fanbases in the University Interscholastic League’s 4A classification. It’s basically just a most-popular contest, and the final four, as of 8:30 this morning, were Kilgore, Dumas, Celina and Sangier. And yes, this did include Carthage (eliminated).

Kilgore is facing off today with Dumas; Celina and Sangier are facing off. The winners of the two will meet in the final vote.

To vote, do so on Twitter, but you can only do so once a day.

Remember, as well, that the Kilgore News Herald’s annual football preview will be a part of the print edition on Wednesday, August 25, and will preview the upcoming season for Kilgore High, Sabine, West Rusk, Overton, and Leverett’s Chapel, as well as Kilgore College, major college football and the NFL.
