  1. It’s extremely hard to do, especially for the current landscape of East Texas in 6A and 5A. And it takes a lot of luck, whether it comes down to match ups, luck of no injuries, luck of balls going your way. Just look at Longview’s state title game. If West Brook doesn’t fumble the extra point at the start of the fourth, it’s a two score game. That one fumble lifted the entire sideline and fan base and it ended up being the deciding point at the end of things. As you said, enjoy the ride when you can. All dynasties come to an end, including the Carthage’s and Aledo’s of the world. Winning a title is something to be cherished, but so are those runs of four and five games deep.
  2. It’s one thing to expect your team to contend for a title every season, which is what we do in Longview give or take the obvious rebuilding season. It’s another to expect to win it every season. Holmes has a lot of positive things going for him, but also has negatives. King is the same way. Just because we finally finished a year the way we wanted in Longview doesn’t remove them. Some of his game planning still baffles me (the West Monroe game for example, and the Jesuit game was lost because of it). It’s gonna happen, especially coaching high school kids. But I do thing believing/expecting to compete for a title is the first hurdle to getting there. It started back in 2004 for us, I fully believe that first season of Coach King set the belief in motion that we haven’t laid off of since. The talent sometimes hasn’t been there despite what some Lobo fans believe. 2014-2016 come to mind. I don’t think JTs current talent is what they’ve come use to this last decade. It sounds like it’s coming back soon but it’s not there yet. It’s just something you have to adjust your mind to as the season comes. I don’t watch every JT game so I have no idea what it’s like when you’re not playing Longview but there’s no doubt he loves Cujo and wants the best for the program.
  3. Longview/Rockwall Heath play in game changed to Athens on Friday.
  4. Longview defeated Mesquite, 55-45. Tyler Lee defeated Mesquite Horn, 60-46. Rockwall Heath defeated North Mesquite, 55-42. GIRLS STANDINGS 1) Tyler Lee (26-6, 11-1) 2) Mesquite Horn (18-13, 10-2) 3) Rockwall (22-11, 8-4) T4) Longview (14-17, 5-7) T4) Rockwall Heath (22-12, 5-7) 6) North Mesquite (7-20, 2-10) 7) Mesquite (15-20, 1-11) Longview and Rockwall Heath will face off in an 11-6A playoff match up in Mount Vernon. Scheduling conflict has forced the date and time to be determined. Heath won the first match up 49-31 in Longview. Longview won the second match up 38-36 (OT) in Heath. This will be the third play in game the two teams have faced off against one another since they became district team mates in 2012-2013. PLAYOFF MATCH UPS #1 Tyler Lee will face #4 Temple #2 Mesquite Horn will face #3 Waco Midway #3 Rockwall will face #2 Killeen Ellison at Cleburne on Tuesday, Feb 18th (7 PM) #4 Longview/Rockwall Heath will face #1 (13th ranked) Killeen Harker Heights
  5. Longview defeated Mesquite, 56-46. Rockwall Heath defeated North Mesquite, 62-52. Can't find a Mesquite Horn/Tyler Lee score. Rockwall was off. BOYS STANDINGS 1) Rockwall (19-11, 8-2) 2) Mesquite Horn (21-10, 7-2) *Missing one game* 3) Longview (24-8, 8-3) 4) Rockwall Heath (17-13, 6-4) 5) Mesquite (11-15, 5-5) 6) North Mesquite (7-20, 1-10) 7) Tyler Lee (6-17, 0-9) *Missing one game* Friday Games: Rockwall Heath at Tyler Lee Mesquite Horn at Mesquite Longview at Rockwall North Mesquite - Bye Next Tuesday Games: Mesquite at Rockwall Heath Rockwall at Mesquite Horn Tyler Lee at North Mesquite Longview - Bye Rockwall has clinched a playoff berth. Mesquite Horn, I'm going to assume beat Lee last night for now (though haven't updated that in the standings), should've clinched a playoff berth last night. Longview has clinched a playoff berth. Seeding however is still all over the place. Lobos still have a shot at the district crown, if Horn can lose at least one and Longview can upset Rockwall in Rockwall on Friday. No idea what happens in a 3-way tie for seeding purposes. Heath can clinch a playoff berth if they defeat Lee on Friday AND Mesquite falls to Horn. If not, then it'll come down to the final game in Heath next Tuesday. PLAYOFF WATCH From what I can tell, Killeen Ellison has clinched top spot in 12-6A. Midway should finish second. Temple and Killeen Harker Heights have clinched a playoff berth, but still have to fight things out for 3rd and 4th.
  6. Lady Lobos defeat Mesquite 55-45 to clinch at least a play in game. Waiting on Heath/North score.
  7. SOCCER UPDATE Will try my best to update this. GIRLS Longview defeated Rockwall Heath, 3-1, last night for their 12th consecutive victory. Rockwall defeated North Mesquite, 1-0. Mesquite Horn was off Haven't found a score for Mesquite at Tyler Lee STANDINGS 1) Longview (12-1-2, 3-0-0, 9 pts) 2) Tyler Lee (2-0-0, 6 pts) 3) Rockwall Heath (7-5-3, 2-2-0, 6 pts) 4) Rockwall (5-7-4, 2-2-0, 6 pts) 5) North Mesquite (3-5-0, 1-2-0, 3 pts) 6) Mesquite Horn (3-5-1, 1-2-0, 3 pts) 7) Mesquite (3-6-3, 0-3-0, 3 pts) BOYS Tyler Lee defeated Mesquite, 5-2, in overtime. Rockwall Heath upset Longview, 2-1. Rockwall defeated North Mesquite, 2-1. Mesquite Horn was off. STANDINGS 1) Mesquite (7-4-2, 3-0-1, 9 pts) 2) Rockwall (8-4-3, 3-1-0, 9 pts) 3) Longview (12-3-2, 2-1-0, 6 pts) 4) Rockwall Heath (4-8-2, 2-2-0, 6 pts) 5) Tyler Lee (6-6-4, 1-1-1, 4 pts) 6) North Mesquite (4-5-2, 0-2-1, 2 pts) 7) Mesquite Horn (3-10-2, 0-3-0, 0 pts)
  8. GIRLS STANDINGS 1) Tyler Lee (25-6, 10-1) 2) Mesquite Horn (18-12, 10-1) 3) Rockwall (21-11, 7-4) *missing one game* T4) Longview (13-17, 4-7) T4) Rockwall Heath (21-12, 4-7) 6) North Mesquite (7-19, 2-9) 7) Mesquite (15-18, 1-9) *missing one game* Mesquite Horn escaped North last night, Longview was blown out by Tyler Lee, Missing the Rockwall/Mesquite score but pretty sure the Jackets won. Tyler Lee at Mesquite Horn on Tuesday decides the district championship. Longview hosts Mesquite on Tuesday, Rockwall Heath hosts North Mesquite. I'm assuming we're heading for a playoff tiebreaker. Longview and Heath both split their in season games.
  9. Longview defeated Tyler Lee last night, 82-50. Rockwall defeated Mesquite, 68-56. Mesquite Horn defeated North Mesquite, 90-54. Rockwall Heath was off. Updated standings... BOYS STANDINGS 1) Rockwall (19-11, 8-2) 2) Mesquite Horn (21-10, 7-2) 3) Longview (23-8, 7-3) 4) Mesquite (11-14, 5-4) 5) Rockwall Heath (16-13, 5-4) 6) North Mesquite (7-19, 1-9) 7) Tyler Lee (6-17, 0-9) Longview closes the season on the road with Mesquite and Rockwall. Heath closes on the road with North and Tyler Lee before hosting Mesquite. Mesquite closes with home games against Longview and Horn before closing at Heath. Horn closes with road games at Tyler Lee and Mesquite before hosting Rockwall. Rockwall is at home vs Longview and closes with at Horn. Longview really needs a road win on Tuesday at Mesquite to keep things in their hands, and not have to go into Rockwall in a must win situation. They dominated the Skeeters in Longview. Both Rockwall and Horn are basically in, though if Rockwall loses out, it might be interesting in a three way tie type of situation. Mesquite has the hardest schedule to end things for sure with Longview/Horn then at Heath. With Heath playing North and Lee to finish things before that final game, the Hawks should be 7-4 going into that one against Mesquite. That's why Longview/Mesquite this coming Tuesday is so important, to keep the Skeeters still in the race.
  10. Shocked ours is as high as it is tbh. Feels a lot like 11-6A the last two years, with two (maybe three depending on things) really good teams with the rest of the pack muddled, and one or two realllllly bad teams.
  11. By the time district rolls around, I feel we'll be more than fine. Really happy we have Temple and West Monroe to really test us before district starts (not that Marshall and Lee won't in their own ways). Opening district with West and East should give our boys plenty of time to prepare for Hp's visit to Lobo. Replacing Haynes is obviously #1 on the list. But with the receiving crew we have coming back, and Meredith in the back field, we'll be pretty solid offensively I feel.
  12. Massive pass on PT's stadium. I get it's still newish, and I get that it's a massive upgrade over their previous. And maybe it's just from when Longview made their lone visit their, but god almighty. I just absolutely hated the experience there, with the parking, and the packed in that away side like sardines. The lack of wind throughout the stadium (have never been that hot at a stadium) probably didn't help any.
  13. That's good to know. I had heard it was just a one year deal, but eh. I would be happy with playing them in 2021 as well. Solid program for sure.
  14. Last night was a big night for the Girls. Longview won their second game in a row for the first time since mid December, over North Mesquite. And with Rockwall Heath's heavy loss to Mesquite Horn, that pushed the Lady Lobos into a playoff spot. I'm missing the Tyler Lee/Rockwall score, but here are the standings I have. GIRLS STANDINGS 1) Mesquite Horn (17-12, 9-1) 2) Tyler Lee (23-6, 8-1) *missing last night's game* 3) Rockwall (21-10, 7-3) *missing last night's game* 4) Longview (13-16, 4-6) 5) Rockwall Heath (21-12, 4-7) 6) North Mesquite (7-18, 2-8) 7) Mesquite (15-18, 1-9) So 1-3 have already clinched. The race for 4th is definitely on. Longview closes with Tyler Lee on the road, before hosting Mesquite. Rockwall Heath hosts North Mesquite next Tuesday. North Mesquite travels to both Mesquite Horn and Rockwall Heath to end the season. Really, this thing is down to Longview and Heath, as North has to win out and hope Longview doesn't win one of their final two games to force a tie breaker. I don't see them beating Horn. Longview's game at Lee on Friday will be tough, but they did defeat Mesquite at Mesquite earlier in the season, so closing at home against the district's worst team is a good omen for the Lady Lobos. Heath's loss last Friday in overtime to the Lady Lobos (in Rockwall at that) really, really hurts them. They can get in if they beat North and Longview loses both. I'm assuming there would be a district playoff if both Longview and Heath finish at 4-8 or 5-7.
