    I wake up this morning reflecting on this journey.I make no mistake in thinking that we are spoiled here at Lobo Nation with winning, even if we never got it done in recent time with the final game.But some of the losses weโ€™ve had to endure have made this one win so much sweeter. From the Lufkin loss in 04, to the unbelievable South Garland loss in 03 and 05, the blocked field goal loss to Garland in 06, the blow out loss to Pflugerville and Lake Travis in 07 & 08. The close LT loss in 09. The blocked punt loss to Guyer in 2010...to the three straight Regional Final losses in 11-12-13. The 2015 field goal miss vs Lake Ridge at AT&T. Of course the last two losses against West Brook in 16 and Modway in 17 on missed field goals, the 2017 one that never shouldโ€™ve happened. Losing the last four years on field goals, and 6 times in the last 14 years. Itโ€™s been an absolute journey to this point.Iโ€™ve had the special privilege of sitting with WP4L, 73, 84 and jbabi for the last 5 or 6 years, and itโ€™s been an absolute pleasure going on this journey with you four and your families. This experience, last night, will never be forgotten and will be absolute cherished for the rest of my life. Weโ€™ve had so much heart break the last 81 years, even though I didnโ€™t get to experience the 67 loss to Richardson, or the 75 loss to Permian, or the 86 loss to Plano....amongst the many others of the years, they all built up accumulating to last night. In a game we played horrible in for 3.5 quarters. A game we usually find a way to lose and gave every bit of that old Lobo spirit....they found a way to bring it home. LOBO UP WEโ€™RE STATE CHAMPS!!!

    I want to start off by saying happy birthday to our dear saviour Jesus Christ, and thank him for all hes done for me in my life, and give him glory for all the things yet to come that he will do for me... Christmas to me is a good time to gather with friends and family from near and far and catch up on lost time and celebrate life as we have it. Through the good and bad our saviour is with us GOD BLESS ALL... MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL YOU SMOAKY FOLKS AND HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You should probably stay home if you need alcohol to enjoy Texas HS football.

    Gave you my thoughts. Just didn't mention your Dangerfield. lmao..After the behind kicking Newton gave them in 2018 nobody in their right football mind would pick them. In fact Newton will probably do it again in 2019. Now you know.

    Hearing reliable word that a production company out of Arizona is seeking the release and rights to produce a Documentary on W.T. Johnston, Newton, repeat state Champs,Friday Night football in rural Texas. Now possibly what will be the Cherry on the Sunday, they also plan to highlight the Historical beat down of once past rival Daingerfield . so I guess that game could live in infamy from your easy chair after all. Triggered ?....That will reach Bump Stock level TRIGGERED>...

    I honestly rooted against Newton all season long. I couldn't stand the constant posting by people saying ridiculous stuff about Newton being the best team in 3A and even 4A, or how they'd compete at 5A, or any of those ridiculous scenarios really. After watching them 2 weeks in a row, I think they'd have had a chance of winning in D1, but still probably wouldn't. That's besides the point though. I knew a little story behind Coach Johnston, but I didn't know the entire back story of him and his team. The connection between him and Barlow was absolutely phenomenal. How Barlow used to take care of his Oxygen tank in 8th grade, and then turned down reporters Thursday to take care of his coach and make sure he was ok. That boy is something special, and I'm glad they could win Coach Johnston another championship! What a great bunch of kids they had. Congratulations Coach Johnston and Newton!

    "We got a lot of diversity on our football team. We got rich ones, poor ones, black ones, white ones, Hispanics. We got it all. And they walk through that fieldhouse and they bleed green. They walk out of that fieldhouse and these dudes will bleed green the rest of their lives. Thatโ€™s home. Iโ€™m proud to say that Longview, Texas, is my home." Greatness.

    Ummm, A: This is high school football. Halftime band performances are as much a part of it as standing for "The Star-Spangled Banner". And yes, the band has travelled with the team the whole season and done their part, they deserve to be there and perform on that field too. B: I can't imagine anyone who's been more than just a fan not understanding that the boys and coaches need longer than fifteen minutes to regenerate and implement scheme adjuatments for the second half.

    Same here man! This Joaquin fella was in the middle of the Longview section with a white towell going and yelling my head off! I am hoarse today but man what an atmosphere! That was my 5th Longview game this year and have to say that I have fallen in love with the Longview Communities support for the Lobos

    This is something like from a football movie.. From a little boy carrying around a football 11 years ago behind his dad, living and loving Lobo life, to leading the Loboโ€™s as their QB to their first state championship in 81 years right along side his dad. Proud is an understatement. #longviewroyalty

    I was in tears after the game. My grandfather was a diehard lobo fan for 70+ years and unfortunately didn't get to see them win one again. Well, he's in heaven cheering for these boys right now.

    God bless these kids. I'm so proud to be just a small, small, small part of their great achievement. HUGE congrats to all the parents, coaches, and staff who made this possible. God bless all you long-suffering faithful fans too. I know I'm a Johnny-come-lately to the party, but yall are an amazing family to be a part of. Yeah, I said family, because we're a little dysfunctional and dramatic (like all families are), but at the end of the day we're united in our love, support, and loyalty of this program. I love you, Lobo Nation.

    I can't tell how much all of the support from East Texas has meant to me. I know that Longview fans have annoyed smaller school fans over the years and we've butted heads. But when it mattered you guys all supported us... Many schools like JT and Marshall and Lufkin.... We got at it during the season, but in our toughest moments you guys were behind us. I had promised myself I was going to get banned when we finally won state. But I just can't.

    My Dad was a Marine in WWII also. Was on Guam. He didn't talk too much about it either. We never even realized that he probably had PTSD until he had alzheimer's in his 90's and would think people were shooting at him on July 4th when he'd hear the fireworks. He just dealt with it quietly all those years. Greatest generation that ever lived...
