There was some major shakeup in the Class 3A/2A/TAPPS portion of the #bEASTTexas Fabulous 15 as three of the Top 5 lost in Week 10.
That allowed Gladewater to grab 12 first-place votes and move into the top spot following its 63-44 win over Sabine.
Malakoff moved up a spot to No. 2. Mineola jumped from No. 6 to No. 3. Timpson went from No. 7 to No. 4 after a 63-0 win over previous No. 5 Joaquin.
Tatum rounds out the Top 5.
Previous No. 1 Daingerfield lost to Hooks 29-28, and previous No. 4 Waskom fell to Elysian Fields 28-21.
Not much changed in the Class 6A/5A/4A portion as the Top 6 of Carthage, Longview, Texas High, Pleasant Grove, Gilmer and Lindale all stayed the same. Kilgore, winners of five straight, is up to ninth after a rout of Athens last Friday, and there’s a huge game this week at R.E. St. John Memorial Stadium, as the Bulldogs host Lindale, with the winner taking the District 9-4A, Division I championship.
Other notable games this week are 5A No. 2 Highland Park at No. 2 Longview, No. 4 Pleasant Grove at No. 5 Gilmer, No. 3 Texas High at No. 12 Marshall, No. 11 Tyler Legacy at Class 6A No. 21 Rockwall, No. 9 Winnsboro at Pottsboro and Bullard Brook Hill at Tyler Grace Community.
