Laneville Yellowjackets to State...again!

As most of you probably well know, one of my very best friends, Brian Nichols, is the head basketball coach / elementary principal at Laneville ISD in East Texas.

The basketball tradition in the small town is strong. Brian has been coaching at Laneville for several years now. He took his team to the State Tournament in Austin last year, but lost to Nazareth in the championship game.

Well, as you can see below, Brian and his boys have done it again! They won the regional tournament this past weekend and are making another trip to the Big Show in Austin. They play their first game in the State Tournament tonight versus Rule ISD. If they win, they will play again on Saturday for the State Title. (Jessica and I are driving to Austin today to watch!)

Below are pics from their victory at the regional tournament.
