LUFKIN, Texas -- What makes East Texas football different? Lufkin recruiting coordinator Alton Dixon is almost outraged by the mere question.

“What makes us different? We play in the woods,” he said. “It’s totally different. We ain’t nothing like Houston and we ain’t s--- like Dallas. You’ve got kids who grow up tough and don’t know nothing but football. It’s live, eat, die, pray football.”

Well, that’s one way to put it.
