  2. Who really cares about Covid any more. Masks don’t stop viruses, just our freedom. We Americans would never follow such ridiculous orders from an abusive authority. We would fight back and refuse. Or maybe we are more like sheep than we think. What color shirt should I wear on Friday, sir? I’m sure it matters.

  5. The journey began in December of 1997 when my dad and I attended my first Lobo game. That game just happened to be the state championship game against Katy. I remember the atmosphere, pregame and the band. However most of all I remember the fans, the barking, howling fans and the train horn. Everyone remembers a missed opportunity to win a state championship. I remember how I got hooked on Lobo football. Each year we would follow Longview until they lost, not ready to end the season we would look at the remaining playoff games. After deciding which game to go watch, off we would go until

  7. The health effects of the virus are way below predictions, but what we are now doing has a powerful sociological effect on people. The fearfulness needs to stop and the pandemic needs to be declared over.

  8. I did my own research from what the CDC has given us:.4% of the US population has contracted COVID-19.The death rate of 30-39 age group accounts for .2% of all deaths from COVID-19.The next age group up (40-49) accounts for .4% of all deaths from COVID-19.In NYC of the 309 deaths of 30-39 year olds, 240 of them had underlying conditions, 40 more they were unsure about. Only 26 died with no underlying causes. Ages 15-24 have had a total of 48 COVID-19 deaths. That is .7% death rate among kids that get infected. Meaning 7 people out of every 1000. And since we are going crazy with stats,

  10. Lobos: Last night was a hard loss. I, for one, was in shock after the game, and I'm sure some still are today. But I want to focus on what this team has accomplished. We've witnessed something most of us have wondered for years if we ever would. We saw this team own the states longest winning streak, at 27 games! We saw countless records set over the last few seasons. Even more, we saw our Lobos (most of us in person) bring home a State Championship!! The pride and excitement we have all experienced the last few years, has been amazing! We have a saying in Longview...'Once a Lobo, AL

  11. This is one Gunter player I’m proud of and I’m sure there all this way. This young man waited around to speak to our coach and congratulate him and tell him he’d be praying for him. THIS is what high school football is about.

  15. So it's ok for kids to be on a football field, playing a game, that has no social distancing involved, where there's sweating, spitting and maybe even some blood, but yet they are going to empty a stadium of fans that they decide have broken protocol rules because the powers that be want to tell us they care more about the kids than the parents and fans do? Smh I'm all for the kids playing, and I'll wear my mask, as I do each week, but please don't tell me we need to enforce mask wearing because we care about the kids. If the kids are fine on the field, then I'm fine in the stands.

  17. Folks we have been privileged to watch historic games and seasons under John King. Y’all should have been watching 82 through 96 and then some. I remember when making it to the second or third round was awesome. I remember beating Highland Park like a drum then getting robbed against Plano. Other that that we just couldn’t go very far. 3 state championship appearances and 2 semifinals in 11 years. That was what dreams were made of back in the day. We are blessed. Thank you Coach King and company.

  23. It is not going to go away. So we can either close down everything for a long time essentially shuttering our way of life, and risk the collapse our entire governmental & economic systems. Or, we can accept the fact that people are going to get it and just try to do the best we can to be careful and limit the spread as much as possible and move forward with life.

  27. amazes me how people can actually claim this is political--Use just a little common sense--The entire worlds economy is going to hell. Italy has shut their entire country down. No school, no colleges, no business, and everybody in lockdown. And you believe they are doing this to change our election. That is absolutely the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Nobody in Italy gives a rats …. who wins our election Are we over reacting? Yes!! Wild panic as people get in fist fights in Walmart over toilet paper, media causing a lot of the panic but to think the Democrats, the media or anybody el

  29. I was wrong. Earlier this year I posted my 1st and what I thought would be my only post on Smoaky .com. I have read some of the comments about the Garrison situation, and have tried not to say anything, but I guess I don't have enough self control to keep from commenting when someone I know is being criticized. So here goes. 1. I have coached with Larry Prince and I know that he made the decision to move into administration. 2. Larry Prince is one of the best Football coaches I have ever worked with. He was a great motivator, He was very organized, and he was as good with ki

  32. Alto’s non-district Schedule... 3A Westwood (28-20) 2-6 no playoffs 2A Timpson (45-0) 4-5 possible 11-2A 4th 3A New Diana (50-0) 6-2 2nd-4th in 11-3a 2A Garrison (26-7) 4-4 2nd-4th 11-2a 3A Corrigan (40-15) 6-2 2nd in 12-3a That’s a combined record of 22-19 (54%) and 3-4 playoff teams. In non-district alto won by an average of 31.4 points. In non-district Alto scored just shy of 38 points per game while allowing a hair over 8. San Augustine’s non-district Schedule... 2A Big Sandy (70-7) 2-6 possible 4th in 10-2a 2A Garrison (36-28) 4-4 2nd-4th in 11

  33. As a breakdown, Alto needs most of all to work on the timing and mental aspect of their game. The misques that they made against us Friday night will eat them up around the second or third round when the comp gets fierce, sharp and crisp is what they need to be looking for going forward. I see no reason the jacket can't be playing in December if the kids get it in their head that they can play with anyone and maybe take it all.. IMHO it could wind up in a battle with SA and the jackets need to be Uber focused going down that stretch... Good luck as y'all start rolling and may luck be in

  34. There are times when we take for granted what we know or what others know. But, the part of Smoaky.com that has always been a major passion of mine is our Historical Section, including programs from both greater-East and Central Texas. This section is listed below and includes a coaching staff information form along with some thoughts from the program's head coach. And, an historical section, year-by-year section of the program's listed. The East Texas programs go back much further, I'm continuing to update the Central Texas year-by-year records and data. And, in that year-by-year

  36. To all the people who let this election break up families and friends let this sink in, I think the last civil conversations we had occurred just days before June 16, 2015. You were supremely confident Hillary Clinton would win the presidential election; you voted for her with glee. Me, along with millions of others, proudly cast our vote for Donald Trump. Then the unimaginable happened. He won. And you lost your freaking minds. I knew you would take the loss hard—and personally—since all of you were super jacked-up to elect the first woman president. But I did not imagine you would become t

  37. 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 we’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

  39. Like I’ve told 84, i get some heat for pulling for yall to win the title, but i understand what you’ve been through. Fans like yourself, gtee, 84, Kingwolf, Rockinl, 07, Aka, JB and etc deserve this. Y’all are devoted fans that have been through a lot with some tough losses over the years. Rivals or not, I hope y’all win on Saturday. And i hope you enjoy every moment. Take as many pics, have as much fun, record as much you can. Just enjoy the moment. I didn’t get to do that in 2001 when we won it all. I got to see it, but didn’t fully enjoy it because I was young and thought we would be back.

  42. I have to admit, the ride since Smoaky.com launched on July 2, 2002 has been amazing. I didn't know if we would make it one month, much less one year, and now sixteen years this week. There have been over 50,000 people register with Smoaky.com over the years, many remain active and I hope you'll continue to support this website. Some members have been on since Day One, some have come and gone, some were here for a week or a game or a topic, many have remained loyal and I can't thank you enough.

  44. Ok guys, I’m getting kind of tired of hiding posts for bashing kids. No disciplinary action will be handed out at this time, but I know who has pushed the limits so far, and the next time you cross the line, you will get a vacation. These are not college kids on a scholarship, and they’re not in the NFL. You have been warned.

This is unrelated to football, but I wanted to give a pat on the back to the EF community and all the surrounding communities that have donated to the go fund me account for the Williams Family. Goal was $10K for the family and in 24 hrs. they are at a $9,230. Great job folks! I wanna give my condolences to the Williams Family. I can't begin to imagine the pain you must feel and we are deeply sorry for your loss. May GOD comfort you and keep you. If anyone out there would like to donate, the link is www.gofundme.com/f/williams-family-memorial GO JACKETS!
