Another area rivalry may just be starting. Diboll Athletic Director Gary Martel told me that the Nacogdoches Dragons have agreed to face the Lumberjacks in Diboll next season. Martel says it will likely be Homecoming in week five.
The Dragons were looking for non district games, as their district was cut from eight teams to six. With five open dates, Coach Bill Harper had to schedule three 3A school's. Along with Diboll, Nacogdoches will play Mt. Pleasant, Center, Lufkin and Carthage.
Diboll's non district schedule is should be very entertaining. The 'Jacks will scrimmage Tatum before their season opener with Kirbyville. Silsbee, Newton and Coldspring are also on the schedule.
