Everyone in Texas loves high school and college football, and it seems virtually everyone is tied into modern social media such as Facebook, Twitter and more.

The Empire-Tribune and its website,, are bringing social media and football together in an effort called the ‘Social Blitz.’

This football season, fans can join the conversation on the Empire-Tribune’s Facebook page and on Twitter each Friday or throughout the week. If you’re a Twerp, we’ve picked hashtags for local teams. Use #Buzz for Stephenville, #Roar for Dublin, #prowl for Hico, #Cards for Lingleville and #FAITH for Stephenville FAITH. For Tarleton State, simply use #TSU.

The E-T will publish some comments on its Social Blitz page in the weekly All Out Blitz football preview section to be published each Thursday throughout the season, and those comments and others will also be published online.

The E-T will also use Cover It Live to host live chats during Stephenville football contests, so join in the conversation at Even if you aren’t at the Jackets game, join in and update others from Dublin, Hico, Lingleville or elsewhere.
