Realignment shuffles Northeast Texas districts

By Whitt Sparks
Tribune Sports

Every two years, on February 1st, high school football fans from across the state of Texas hold their breath to see what district their teams will be in.  For some parts of Texas, like the panhandle or west Texas I’m sure there isn’t much change to the districts year in, year out, but here in Northeast Texas the changes made by UIL can cause a lot of excitement.  This year did not disappoint, so let’s talk about what we know.

We knew that Hooks was going up in classification and that Atlanta, Liberty Eylau, and James Bowie were going down.  So how was that going to affect everyone else?  Well, let’s break down the area districts.
