Dennis Johnson from across town. Seems like Liberty Eylau turns out some pretty good players on occasion.

If you’re skeptical on Jimbo where do you sit on Morris?
Well given most experts, abroad and here on hogville think Jimbo is a great coach. I think he will fall short and the aggies will be typical aggies.
Now given that certain experts. (YOU and a few others) expect CCM to fail and at best be avg 7-8 wins a year. I think CMM will succeed. Ya know do better then 7-8 wins avg.  But hey I am using flawed data, (again experts like you and others) so the numbers maybe a lot different.

Byron Bam Morris was another East Texas stud...man among boys back then
You got that right. I coached against him when he was a HS freshman. He was well over 200 lbs and won the 100 meters at the district track meet.  He was very physical too. He played for the Steelers and had an older brother that played for the Bears, from a 2A HS.

Earl Campbell from Tyler
Billy Sims from Hooks Texas

Oh, just the occasional Doak Walker award winner, an NFL receiver and a free safety, and an Olympian.

I was at OU when Billy Sims was there. Barry Switzer knew the value of recruiting east Texas.

He knew the value of $$$$$$$$ as it relates to recruiting.

Thanks for the assist! I knew I would leave someone out...as this thread has mentioned.....2A FB in Texas is not to be confused with 2A FB in our state.

Weve gotten some pretty good players out of Lufkin over the years, too.

I lived there for a year across the street from the stadium and was able to see every home game
in 2016. Pretty incredible for HS ball. Especially when I was used to 2A north LA ball..

The Highway 19 corridor from Houston through Huntsville, Crocket, Palestine, Canton, Athens, Sulphur Springs to Paris, Texas, looks like fertile recruiting grounds to me.

Good news.

The key to success at Arkansas has been and always will be recruiting well in Texas.

Lots of truth in the above post.
