Timpson Bears — #bEASTTexas Fab 15 poll

Tim Monzingo

Timpson’s Tery Bussey (10) takes advantage of blocking by Dakovian Tutt (20) and Braden Courtney (22) to find a hole in the Carlisle defense earlier in the season. The Bears continue to be ranked No. 3 in the 3A/2A/TAPPS Division of the #bEASTTexas Fab 15 football poll this week.

TYLER — Carthage, Texas High and Van are the only three undefeated East Texas teams remaining in Class 6A/5A/4A.

Those three teams are all in the top five of the #bEASTTexas Fabulous 15 football poll entering Week 8 of the high school football season.

Carthage is a unanimous No. 1, receiving all 15 first-place votes. Texas High checks in at No. 2, up one spot from last week. Van remains at No. 5. Gilmer (No. 3 with 186 points) and Longview (No. 4 with 178 points) are also in the Top 5.

Canton (5-2) is the only new team in the large-school poll at No. 13.

The entire 10 of the 3A/2A/TAPPS poll remained the exact same with West Rusk, Mount Vernon, Timpson, Waskom, Tatum, Harmony, Beckville, Gladewater, Elysian Fields and Daingerfield grabbing those spots.
