Kilgore wide receiver Deiontrae Wheat (center) takes a hit from a Center defender. High school football is back on Monday, when practice begins not only at Kilgore, but all over the state. Season tickets for those who had them last year are on sale all week next week at both Kilgore (in the athletic department office) and at Sabine (in the high school office). Kilgore's watermelon fest is Thursday night, Aug. 17, and the Bulldogs will host Gilmer that Friday, Aug. 18, in the first preseason scrimmage. The News Herald's football preview is a part of the paper Aug. 30. It's about time to rock and roll!
