Mike Says:  This will be Gilmer's 4th Game Of The Week.  They are 3-0 so far.  Henderson is 0-1 in Games Of The Week falling to Carthage last week.  This is another great East Texas showdown.  Gilmer's quarterback Luke Turner leads the team in passing and rushing.   Their defense is led by LB Josh Walker and DB Tanner Barr.  The BUCKEYES win 34-27!!!

Chris Says: Take away the Carthage game and these two teams are doing almost identical.  In fact, Henderson did a better job handling both Liberty-Eylau and Longview Spring Hill.  Gilmer did a much better job against Carthage and has also knocked off Daingerfield, so the Buckeyes are no stranger to performing in big games.  It doesn't get any bigger in the regular season than this game which will likely decide the District 16-3A title.  In our Gilmer Buckeye's Midseason Report Card coach Jeff Traylor talked about his team being "a pretty normal team."  Normal for Gilmer is a far cry better than most.  I have also heard that Jordan Traylor will be taking over at QB this week due to injury.  I expect the Henderson Lions to have a good showing, but the Gilmer BUCKEYES take it 31-21!!!
