Four East Texas Athletes Make the 2021 Whataburger Super Team
We love our high school football in East Texas. When those lights come on on a Friday night, the stands are always packed with cheering hometown fans. Those towns also get excited when their player, or players, receive special recognition for their play on the field. With the announcement of the Dave Campbell's Texas Football 2021 Whataburger Super Team, four East Texas towns can be very excited for their players.
