  1. 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!!!

    Longview faces Killeen Ellison next Tuesday in the bi-district round in Fairfield. Eagles and Lobos will meet for the 5th time overall, with Ellison holding a 3-1 series lead. First meeting since 2003, and 2nd playoff meeting (first since 1995). https://lobohistory.com/basketball/lobos/gamelogs/killeenellison.html Lady Lobos saw their season come to an end at the hands of Waco Midway, by a 52-42 scoreline. The loss was Longview's first ever against Waco Midway. https://lobohistory.com/basketball/ladylobos/gamelogs/wacomidway.html
  3. Basketball season is underway too. Been slacking a little on that front, so sorry about that. Longview improved to 3-1 yesterday with a 78-43 win over Jacksonville in Whitehouse. Lobos now 15-4 all-time against the Indians on the court. https://lobohistory.com/basketball/gamelogs/jacksonville.html

    Finally got around to updating the Rockwall game log for the Lobos after their 52-49 overtime defeat to the Jackets last Friday. https://lobohistory.com/basketball/lobos/gamelogs/rockwall.html What a great effort against a top 5 state ranked team, but it wasn't to be, and Lobos close the regular season are 26-8 (7-5). Lady Lobos face off against Waco Midway tonight in Athens.

    The sooner this become a reality, the better. Yes it's nice to have a game 15 minutes away from home and to have a for sure sell out crowd most years. But the game isn't competitive most seasons anymore. Definitely not for the full 48 minutes. I have no ill will toward any Maverick out there. I never did. My generation does not know what it's like to hate Marshall. It's just the old 12-5A crew and before that's holding onto it. Move on and find some better match ups for both teams. It's not like we even play each other in basketball in non-district play. It's been 6 years since we've played in non-district in girls basketball, and 8 in boys basketball. It can be doneeeee.

    The Lady Lobos improved to 22-9 (7-5) last night with a 52-29 victory over Mesquite. It was Longview's 6th win in a row over the Lady Skeeters. Longview leads the series, 21-11. https://lobohistory.com/basketball/ladylobos/gamelogs/mesquite.html The Lady Lobos will open the post season against Waco Midway in Athens on Feb 12th.

The Skeeters improved to 16-6 all-time against Longview, and basically wrapped up the 2nd spot in district and basically confirmed Longview will be the 3rd place team come post season time. https://lobohistory.com/basketball/lobos/gamelogs/mesquite.html Longview faces Rockwall this coming Friday night to end the regular season, before a bye on the final date of 11-6A play. Longview still has a couple options on who it might end up playing in round 1 with 12-6A. Shoemaker is in first place by two games. Killeen Ellison and Waco Midway are tied for 2nd and 3rd. So it will be one of those three teams.

    Who knows tbh. This team was beyond special, and I do think this will be the strongest of the 3 years we get to watch King at QB. But things could fall right for us again in 2019, I wouldn't shocked. I do think we'll be there in at least the Quarters again. I think it's definitely always to predict a state championship, especially in the top 2 classes for East Texas. But we should be incredibly strong again.

    What's changed if that were to happen if you don't mind me asking? I believe he was only waiting for his daughter to graduate if I remember correctly.

Lobos hold a two game lead over Heath (3-5) who's in 4th. and a two and a half game lead over Horn (2-5) who's in 5th.

Win on Tuesday at North Mesquite should wrap things up for the Ladies for a playoff spot.

  14. Nah. Those players earned the rings on the field and it should be for them and them only IMO. Fans have the memories from the stands, the rally towels given out, etc etc etc so many other things could be done for fans, but a ring is not one of them IMO.

    LOL They didnโ€™t stay on the field the whole time. Heck North Shoreโ€™s 3rd string back has a D1 offer if I remember correctly. Most 6A top schools rotate consistently throughout the game.

  17. You didnโ€™t listen closely enough then
  18. 1990. (I had to get it in to see how it feels after hearing so many 1937 comments )
  19. Makes me feel better that we hung 70 on his team. Iโ€™d disagree with no weak teams in that district after figuring out who youโ€™re talking about. Two 1-9 teams, one 2-8 team. And their supposed great team that his team beat ended up losing to a 3-7 team in the first round.
  20. I never understood why we didn't have something similar to this. Yes it would take some keeping up each and every year, and clearly we get a little lazy in Longview with our tunnel not being updated in god knows how long, but still. This program should have something like this at Lobo Stadium IMO.
