One thing about Gilmer and Carthage is they are battle tested come playoff time. You can add Pleasant Grove in there as well. Carthage and Gilmer playing this week, but Carthage also plays Pleasant Grove next week then Jasper later on. Gilmer played a good Gladewater team and now plays Carthage. Pleasant Grove played #1 ranked Argyle, Silsbee and later on Carthage. That’s a gauntlet of state championship caliber teams no matter how you look at it!
