  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.

  4. 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

  5. Hello smoaky friend. Just wanted to say that if you live in the east Texas area and are unable to get out and get the things that you NEED then feel free to contact me and I'll volunteer my service to you.

If you are needing assistance then please feel free to send me a message and I'll do whatever I can. Do not risk getting outside if you don't have the proper PPE. I'm am fortunate enough that I do

  6. 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.

  7. 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,

  9. 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. 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.

  13. 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.

  17. 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.

  21. 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!!

  23. 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

  29. So, President Trump goes through almost four years of non-stop bogus attacks and investigations including the phony Russian collusion hoax, the corrupt Mueller investigation, illegal spying on his campaign, attempted undermining of his Presidency by anti-Trump planted whistleblowers, corrupt outgoing intelligence agencies trying to set up the President, a phony and corrupt impeachment farce, disgraceful and unrelenting character assassination of his nominees for various positions and generally total opposition and obstruction of his pro America agenda .....

  30. One case does not shut down anything. Most schools play on! Alto ISD "follows all state and local protocols, expectations, and policies in regards to safety of our students, staff, and community during our current situation." The bottom line is Winona did not want to play and it should be a forfeit; it will be in district. Their sub-varsity teams showed up to play but were turned around by their administration ten minutes before kick-off. The timing reeks. Our players, cheerleaders (big huge run-through sign!), band (brand new show!), and flags have worked their butts off all week prepar

  33. Donald Trump's actions and record over the past 3+ years have been exactly what this country needed. I don't like his personality and I cringe at some of the things he says ... he's not a great communicator ... but I thank God he was elected instead of Hillary Clinton ... if congress would stop obstructing his pro America agenda, he would really do some great things. The pathetically dishonest and relentlessly brutal media coverage he has received from 95% of the media has been unbelievable ... I just hope the President that follows his 2nd term is half as good for America as he has been ...

  34. This whole shenanigans about locking down the country had nothing to do with “health”. It had everything to do with saving face since we are one of the world leaders in medical research and treatment. What has being in quarantine done? Nothing except shut down the economy and delayed the inevitable. People will continue to get sick. People will continue to die. The percentage rate on that is very very low. This 25% stuff is horse too. Open it back up at the risk of the employer, workers and consumers or don’t do it at all.

  36. I don't think over 40,000 deaths in less than 2 months could be labeled as "stupidity" but that's another conversation. Almost every country in the world has had some form of lockdown....so we aren't special in that respect. But.....even with those (still rising) numbers..... I think we will have football by fall. However.....I have a feeling that high risk populations (older and the ill) will be asked to stay home longer... but I think the general population will be out and about normally. So crowds will be smaller.....not as many grandparents in the stands. I'm willing

  37. This was the best 2a game I have seen played in East Texas in a while. None of that 7 on 7 touch football some schools play. Just plain old physical football. Two teams not just trying to outscore each other but actually hitting, tackling, and making them earn every yard. I want to thank you both for an entertaining Friday night.

  38. Father, I come to you today not to ask for anything for myself, but to ask that you give Pease of mind to a thousand young men who are about to finish up their high school career in football. FATHER i ask that you touch thier heart and soul, give solace to the fallen and grace to the Victor. Father I ask that these young men leave it all on the field and that they give the glory to you. Father please protect the player, and all who journey to watch them tonight. Lord I ask these things in the name of my savior JESUS CHRIST, and the dove of Pease.. Amen.

  39. Been a fun week. Pretty cool folks in the J. With that said, tonight is about the kids. Many (17 on our side) will be strapping up with hope that it’s not the last time. Lots of parents and family members hoping the same as the inevitable draws closer and closer. Nothing lasts forever whether you win or lose. I pray for traveling grace for all and a heart full of fight for every single young man on both sides. A good team goes home tonight while the other gets to keep chasing the dream. See y’all there.

  40. 1. Coaching The coaching is top notch, and there is low turnvover at Longview. Coaches come and they stay, I mean Coach Wilson (RBs coach) has been at LV since the 70s. Many others have been at LV pretty much since King became HC. We also keep everything in house when promoting a position. No need to hire outside when you already have good coaches on staff who already knows how the program operates. I'm not a big fan of the coaching staffs at the other ETX bigs, namely Lufkin. 2.
