JACKSONVILLE — A check conducted shortly before 2 p.m. this afternoon with athletic department officials at Jacksonville, Rusk, Troup and Brook Hill indicated that as of now there has been no change in plans to play the schools' respective football games tonight, despite the unfavorable conditions that have soaked much of East Texas today and a weather forecast that is calling for more heavy rain later in the evening.



Officials at Rusk, Troup and at Brook Hill stated that a final decision on their games would be made later in the afternoon.



Jacksonville is scheduled to travel to Henderson tonight, while Rusk hosts Athens, Troup is at home versus Arp and Brook Hill entertains Longview Spring Hill.



The Daily Progress will be updating this story later in the afternoon if changes necessitate.
