CBS19 needs your help to determine who will win this week's Whataburger Coach of the Week Award.

This week features two coaches who will soon be featured in a nationally televised game in September: Longview's John King and John Tyler's Ricklan Holmes.

John King ended last year's season with a state championship, the school's first championship in 81 years. The Lobos were undefeated last year and capped their season with a dramatic 35-34 victory over Beaumont West Brook. King's Lobos are poised to repeat their success from 2018 with another championship run.
