LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES 11.11.2016 - Beaumont West Brook 34, Longview 33 - C.A. Thomas Multipurpose Center FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW And so we meet again. For the second consecutive season, the Longview Lobos and the Beaumont West Brook Bruins will face off in the 6A Division II Region II Bi-District round of the playoffs. Unlike last season though, despite claiming a share of the district championship in 2016, when Longview had to travel to Beaumont to take on the Bruins..the Lobos will welcome West Brook to Lobo Stadum. Last season, the Lobos saw a 10-point 4th quarter lead escape them in the later part of the quarter following a fumble inside the 10 yard line that would've sealed the deal for the Lobo gave the Bruins new life. West Brook walked away with the 34-33 victory. The loss for Longview marked the first time in 11 seasons that the Lobos failed to reach the 2nd round of the playoffs. Both John King's losses in bi-district play have come at the hands of a missed field goal as the clock ran out, and each came by a single point. Longview's last three seasons have ended at the hands of missed field goals. In 2014, Longview missed a long field goal in the ran as time ran out to fall to Mansfield Lake Ridge, 37-35. In 2015, Longview missed a chip shot field goal in the final seconds that would've sent the Lobos into overtime as they fell again to the Eagles, 56-53. And then last season's 34-33 loss to West Brook. The Lobos travel home where they are holding onto a 7-game home winning streak. Longview is 180-37-6 all-time at new Lobo Stadium, which opened in 1976. That record also includes a 62-5 mark under John King with one forfeit included. Longview will be hosting it's 3rd playoff game at Lobo Stadium where in 1984 the Lobos fell to Bryan and had to wait until 2009 to host another when Longview demolished Whitehouse 52-9.

In 1927, Leonard Ray tallied a school record 6-touchdowns, and Randall Ross added four of his own as the Loboes knocked off Jefferson in the largest margin of victory in Lobo history by a 84-0 count. In 1944, Longview saw it’s playoff hopes come to a halt as Marshall knocked off the Lobos 14-0 at Maverick Stadium in the 11-2A district title decider. In 1961, Longview close out it’s season at Panther Stadium in Lufkin with a 14-0 victory over the Panthers. In 1967, trailing 12-0 in the first quarter and 20-14 at half-time, Steve Judy came to the rescue in notching touchdowns 3 and 4 on the night in the 3rd as Longview clinched a playoff spot for the first time in 20-years with a 35-20 in Lufkin. In 1972, Chuck Boyd tallied twice in the second half as Longview completed the perfect 10-0 regular season in a 21-6 win at Lobo Stadium over Lufkin. In 1978, Longview and Pine Tree met for the first time on the gridiron. The Lobos trailed 12-10 going into the 4th quarter before reeling off 16 unanswered in a 26-12 win over the Pirates.

  2. LONGVIEW LOBOS (8-1, 5-1) AT MESQUITE SKEETERS (1-8, 0-6) DATE: Friday, November 10th, 2017 TIME: 7:30 PM LOCATION: E.H. Hanby Stadium in Longview, Texas LONGVIEW BROADCAST: Sunny 106.5 FM KOOI MESQUITE BROADCAST: 88.5 FM KEOM LOBOS LEAD SERIES 11-2-0 The Lobos have a 3-1-0 lead when the game is a non-district contest.

Hanby Stadium 10.07.2011 - Longview 54, Mesquite 21 - E.H. Hanby Stadium 10.08.2010 - Longview 35, Mesquite 21 - Lobo Stadium FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW Clinched. For the first time since 2009, Longview will host a home playoff game in the first round of the 2017 Class 6A Division II playoffs. That’s what the Lobos have earned following a 49-7 thrashing of Rockwall Heath. The win improves Longview to 8-1 overall on the year, with the only loss the first district game of the season when Horn handed the Lobos a butt whooping. The Jags have gone undefeated so far in district play with one game remaining, giving Longview one last hope at a district championship. But the important thing for Longview is the clinching of a home playoff game, something that they didn’t get last season despite being co-district champions. Last season, Longview was forced to travel all the way to Beaumont, Texas to take on the West Brook Bruins. Despite holding a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter, the Lobos saw their season end on the hand of one extra point, 34-33. This season, the role will be reversed. The Bruins have lost two games in district play and now will be forced to take on the Lobos in Longview this season. But first, the Lobos must close out against a Mesquite team that’s reeling. Since starting the season off 1-1, with a dominating win over Garland 49-13, the Skeeters have seen their season under first year head coach Jeff Fleener go down the drain. The Skeeters are on a 7-game losing streak, with the closest game being two 15-point defeats to North Mesquite and John Tyler. The last three weeks fo the Skeeters, they have surrendered at least 45-points. The Lobos are coming off one of their more dominant games of the season, a 49-7 beatdown of previously 4-1 in district Rockwall Heath. The 42-point win was the largest margin of victory this season for the Lobos. After falling behind 7-0 after one quarter, the Lobos exploded in the second for a 21 point outburst. In the second half, the onslaught continued with a 28-point half. The win marks the 14th Senior Night in a row that the Lobos have won, all under current head coach John King. Longview’s last Senior Night loss came in 2003 when Longview fell, 14-0, to Lufkin. This week, the Lobos return to a place that was once kind to them…but the last three visits have been nothing but struggles. E.H. Hanby Stadium was once a perfect record for Longview, sitting at 8-0. But it’s last win came in 2011. Since, the Lobos have fallen 33-7 to Mesquite in 2012 and now back to back losses against Mesquite Horn, 25-17 in 2012 and 52-34 early this season. It’s a streak that needs to end this week for Longview, mostly for momentum to continue and going into next season where the Lobos will undoubtedly still be coupled with Mesquite ISD.

In 1933, the Loboes grabbed their first ever victory in Nacogodches with a 34-0 win. In 1950, Longview and Tyler continued a streak of 8 consecutive years of trading wins as the Lions knocked off Longview, 26-0, at Rose Stadium. In 1961, a missed two point conversion by the Lobos in the 2nd quarter was all Texas High needed to corral Longview at Grim Park in a 16-14 victory for the Tigers. In 1967, Rodney Hill scored twice as five different Lobos tallied touchdowns in a 42-0 victory over Texarkana at Grim Park. The Lobos held Texas High to just 136 yards total on the night. In 1972, the Lobos fell behind early in the first quarter against Tyler Lee but a 93 yard kickoff return by Calvin Portley and a Mike Mock field goal in the first quarter erased the deficit as the Lobos knocked off the Red Raiders, 21-7, at Rose Stadium.

Longview trailed 20-7 at halftime before Hunter tallied twice in the 4th quarter to lift the Lobos to the win. In 2000, Nacogdoches grabbed a 13-0 lead before halftime before Longview awoke in the 2nd half in route to a 30-13 victory over the Dragons. The Lobo defense held the Dragons to just 77 yards total on the night. In 2006, in a back and forth game, Mesquite grabbed a 17-14 lead with just 2:42 to play at Mesquite Memorial Stadium. But Longview would not be denied as D’Marcus Miles rushed for a 59 yard touchdown with 1:53 left in the game to lift Longview to a 21-17 win and their third straight district championship. In 2011, before a nationally televised audience, Jalen Porter forced DeSoto quarterback Desmond White to fumble with 1:49 left in the game which resulted in a safety and lifted Longview to a 23-21 victory over the Eagles. The victory gave Longview their eighth consecutive district crown.

The stretch run to the 2017 playoffs finally gets back underway this week after the entire district enjoyed a week off from action. It was a much needed week off for the Lobos of Longview after suffering numerous injuries through the first 6 weeks of the season (and even stretching into two days and the scrimmage week). But before they took the week off, Longview enjoyed a much needed and extremely important victory over the Rockwall Yellowjackets, 31-21. The Lobos lead throughout the game, grabbing a 24-7 lead late into the 3rd quarter before the Jackets crawled back into the game in the 4th. A second interception by Jalen Carr ended any doubt who would win the game. Carr ended the night with three picks overall. The win for Longview improved the Lobos to 5-1 on the season with four big games remaining in North Mesquite, John Tyler, Rockwall Heath and Mesquite. The win marked Longview’s 7th consecutive victory over the Yellowjackets, and improved the Lobos to 4-0 all-time at Wilkerson-Sanders Memorial Stadium. Longview now turns it’s focus to North Mesquite, who is coming off a 7-point loss to Rockwall Heath and sits at 1-2 in district overall. The Lobos and Stallions meet for the 13th time, 10th in district play as the Lobos look to win their 5th in a row over the North Mesquite. Since falling to the Stallions in 2010, Longview has rolled up four convincing victories over North with the Lobo offense scoring at least 37 in all four of them. Longview is looking to win their 10th game against a single opponent for the 15th time in school history. The Stallions no doubt will be looking to turn the curse of Lobo Stadium as they look for their first win in Longview since 1988. North Mesquite’s been somewhat of a shock in district 11-6A so far this season. No doubt, most expected them to completely struggle and finish at the bottom of the standings. At one point, the Stallions sat at 3-1 on the season before a blow out loss to John Tyler and a single score loss to Heath brought them back to .500 overall. The John Tyler loss, 44-7, was really the only game they haven’t been in this year. While not expected to make the post season, the Stallions definitely will have their chance to get in as they still have Longview, Mesquite Horn and Rockwall left on their schedule. They probably would have to win at least two of those games to make it in. The Lobos will be looking to continue to improve, as they have following their big loss to Mesquite Horn. Since handing the reigns over to sophomore Haynes King, the Lobos are 2-0 overall with the offense averaging 42.5 points a game. For momentum, the playoff race and the district championship race, this week is a big one between Longview and North Mesquite.

Longview and Rockwall’s week five match ups proved much the difference in both team’s rivalries game. Longview, meeting Tyler Lee for the 58th time overall, saw the Red Raiders climb back to a tie in the opening minutes of the 2nd quarter and compete well with the Lobos as Longview took a blocked extra point that was returned for two points and a last second field goal to the break with their 19-13 lead. After halftime, the Lobos decided they weren’t playing around anymore spouting off 35 points to win their 13th consecutive game over the Red Raiders, 54-26. Tyler Lee’s only offensive touchdown came in the 3rd quarter, before a long fumble return in the 4th gave them their only two scores of the 2nd half. The Lobo defense has given up a total of 23 points in the second half of games through five this season. One problem remains for Longview though. The first half, more importantly the second quarter. After scoring the most points they’ve scored in a second quarter this season with 12 against Tyler Lee, the Lobos sit at a -5 overall in the quarter..which isn’t as bad when you take put the 31 scored against vs Mesquite Horn. However, the team’s play in the first half this season has been spotty at best despite holding a lead in 4 of the 5 games. Longview has erupted in the second half of each game this season outscoring their opponent 119-29 through five games. Against Tyler Lee, A’Darius Carter led the way for the Lobos as he tied the school rushing record with 5 rushing touchdowns in a night. Carter came up just short of a 91 season long record of 6 total touchdowns in a game, which was set twice by Leonard Ray in the 1927 season. Irregardless, Carter became just the 6th player to score 5 or more touchdowns for Longview. Where the Lobos found paydirt, Rockwall found misery. Despite holding a 27-14 lead heading into the fourth quarter, the Jackets couldn’t hold of their cross town rival Heath as the Hawks came all the way back scoring the last touchdown of the game and taking their first lead of the night with 0:00 on the clock. Despite some saying the Hawks didn’t actually get in the end zone, Heath knocked off their rivals for the second straight season in a 28-27 upset. The loss for Rockwall comes a week after seeing the Jackets dominate John Tyler, 48-7. The series between the Lobos and Jackets dates all the way back to 1931, when Rockwall knocked off Longview 20-6 at Jacket Field in a Class B Bi-District game. Since that meeting, the Lobos have rolled off six consecutive wins over the Jackets. Longview comes into Wilkerson-Sanders Memorial Stadium with a perfect 4-0 record in Rockwall, with the closest game being a 14-10 Lobo win over Rockwall back in 2004. Longview’s last visit to Rockwall saw the Lobos trail Heath, 14-0, before most Longview fans even got to the stadium. But the Lobos rolled off 35 straight in a 35-21 win.

It’s a feat they’ll be looking to match this Friday night as they welcome the South Oak Cliff Golden Bears for Homecoming 2017. The Lobos, 2-0 on the young season, are fresh off a 41-7 win over the Marshall Mavericks. The win over the Mavs was their 16th win in the last 17 against Marshall, and was their 60th overall in the long standing rivalry. After hosting the 107th battle between the Lobos and Mavericks, Longview now turns to hosting Dallas ISD’s South Oak Cliff in the 7th contest between the two schools. The Lobos have never lost against the Golden Bears, with only a 1962 tie blemishing an otherwise perfect record over SOC. Last season, the Lobos 7-0 early to the Golden Bears after a long drive of 17 plays to open the game. From there on, Longview rolled to a 62-14 win. For the second straight year, the Golden Bears will be the opponent for Homecoming 2017.

In 1944, Art Rowland netted four touchdowns as the Lobos knocked off Nacogodches, 43-0. In 1950, after grabbing a 13-0 lead behind scores from Sonny Jones and Dick Nash, Port Neches Groves called 13 unanswered points as the Lobos and Indians tied 13-13 at Lobo Stadium. In 1961, Longview traveled to Cobb Stadium in Dallas for a 21-6 loss to Dallas Thomas Jefferson. In 1967, after falling behind 7-0 in the first quarter, Steve Judy leveled the score at 7-7 before Rodney Hill added two more scores, including a 71 yard touchdown run, in a 27-7 victory over Arlington. In 1972, Mike Mock’s 32 yard field goal was all the scoring the game would see as the Lobos escape Etheredge Stadium with a 3-0 victory over the La Marque Cougars. In 1978, Larry Smith would start the scoring before Sam Lanier added two more touchdowns in a 28-6 beatdown of Fort Worth Paschal. The Lobos held the Panthers to just 56 yards on the night. In 1989, Earnest Hunter put up three touchdowns in the first half as the Lobos rolled to a 34-8 win over Fort Worth Trimble Tech. In 2000, Longview grabbed an early 14-0 lead over Artillious Allison before Lake Highlands scored 24 straight points to take a 24-14 lead. After Allison added his third, the Lobos would need a huge defensive stop. Despite getting it, Longview would have to go all the way with little time on the clock. They got it. A hail mary 97-yard touchdown pass from Joel Armstrong got Willie Andrews would send the Lobo crowd into a frenzy as Longview knocked off the Wildcats, 27-24. In 2006, Mark Johnson would tally twice and the Lobos would get scores from Travrus Brown, D’Marcus Miles and Jazmon Moon as the Lobos rolled all over Monroe Ouachita, 38-7.

Right with the kickoff of the 108 season of Lobo football, a kickoff return for a touchdown started the 2017 season with a bang for the Longview Lobos. The win started off what would become their 39th victory against their long time rival, Lufkin. While the Lobo offense got off to a slow start, it was kick into gear mid way through the 2nd quarter when Carter would take over the helm. Despite a drive of over 7 minutes and 17 plays for Lufkin to start the second half, the Lobo offense would continue it's dominance with Carter at the QB spot until midway through the 4th when the Lobos coughed up their only fumble on the night. By then, the Lobos had established a 28-10 lead and looked well onto the way to their first victory of the year. The Lobos, starting the season with a win for just the second time since 2012, now look towards another long time rival. From #80 against Lufkin, to #107 against Marshall. The rematch following Marshall's 2015 upset of Longview (28-25) proved to be no match up last season, as the Lobos marched all over the Mavericks in a 56-7 victory. The win marked the largest victory against Marshall in the series history for the Lobos. The win marked Longview's 15th win over the Mavs in the last 16 seasons. Tonight, the Lobos will look to win their 60th overall game against the Mavericks which would be the first time in Longview history that Lobos have recorded at least 60 wins against a single opponent. Marshall, with a fresh new coaching staff following Harper's move to Duncanville, started the season off with a 29-27 loss against Chance Amie and the Robert E Lee Rebels. Claude Mathis takes over for the Mavs in their first road game under his helm but Mathis is definitely no stranger to Longview football after two seasons being district mates when he was the head coach at DeSoto. Both contests went Longview's way as the Lobos upset the Eagles in 2010, 38-35, and held on for a strong defensive victory in 2011, 23-21. This year's edition marks Marshall's 20th visit all-time to Longview's Lobo Stadium (the new stadium). Since their shocking double overtime victory over the Lobos in 1998, 35-28, Marshall has not beaten the Lobos at the stadium running a record of 7 consecutive defeats.

The Lobo defense held the Broncos to just 57 total yards on the night. In 1967, Ralph Blount’s field goal and Rodney Hill’s 2nd quarter touchdown reception was all Longview needed to a 10-7 victory over Woodrow Wilson. In 1972, Mick Mock tallied the only touchdown the Lobos needed but Calvin Portley, Chuck Boyd and Charles Robey added the insurance markers in a 27-0 Lobo win over Dallas Jesuit. In 1978, five different Lobos scored for the Lobos, highlighted by a 78 yard interception return by Ed Jackson, as the Lobos knocked off Dallas Thomas Jefferson 34-0 at Cobb Stadium. In 1989, the Lobos fell behind 12-0 at Mesquite Memorial Stadium against North Mesquite before a huge 4th quarter comeback spurred by two Selwyn Broughton touchdowns in a 15-12 shocker over the Stallions. In 1995, after a scoreless first half, the Lobos marched out to a 10-0 lead behind Isiah Stoker’s 3rd quarter marker before holding on to knock off the Waco Lions for the 7th straight time, 17-7. In 2000, fresh off their 2nd straight State Championship, Cedric Benson notched four touchdowns as the Midland Lee Rebels opened the season with a 40-7 win over Longview at Memorial Stadium in Midland. In 2006, the Lobos grabbed a 38-21 lead before a late 4th quarter comeback by the Mavericks pushed the game to the brink with a last second hail mary falling just short. Jazmon Moon tallied four touchdowns in the 38-35 victory over Marshall.

The 108 season of Longview football begins the season with the 80th match up against arguably their biggest current rival, the Lufkin Panthers. The Lobos and Panthers meet for the 12th consecutive season, with the last season they didn’t meet coming in 2005. It’ll be the 58th year in the previous 59 seasons that the two schools have met. In the 12 consecutive years the two schools have played, the Lobos and Pack have met a total of 15 times with two bi-district meetings taking place at Rose Stadium. The two schools have faced off a ridiculous 20 times in the last 15 seasons. In current years, the Lobos have seen themselves take back the series from the Panthers (who had take control following an 11-game winning streak over Longview). The Lobos are 6-2 over the Panthers since the start of the 2011 season. Once again, the two teams have a chance of meeting in the bi-district round of the playoffs this fall, which would mark the two schools meeting for the third time in the last four years in round one. The two schools have met 9 previous times in the playoffs, which is three more times than Longview has met any other team in the post season. After no meetings in post season play in 55 years, the two schools have met four times in the playoffs in the last 15 years. Longview comes into the game looking to shake off a disappointing season, by Lobo standards. With the return to the top classification in 2016, the Lobos saw themselves win a share of the district crown for the second straight season (and 12 district crown in the last 13 seasons). However, having to travel to Beaumont in round one proved to be too much for Longview as the Lobos dropped their first bi-district contest in 11 seasons (dating back to 2005). It marked the first time under head coach John King that Longview did not each at least 9 wins in a season (finished with 8). The bi-district playoff loss was just the second under John King, both losses being by a single point (34-33 last season again West Brook, and 14-13 in 2005 against South Garland). The Lobos enter 2017 looking to improve on a horrendous defensive campaign that saw the team give up the 3rd most points allowed in school history. Lufkin welcome’s Todd Quick back as head coach for his 6th season as the helm of the Pack. The Panthers will be looking to turn 2017 back into the days of old, as no Lufkin team has finished with more than 7 wins since Quick’s first season at the helm when the team when on an unexpected run to round three in a 9-4 finish. Since that 2012 season, Lufkin has seen 5-6, 6-5 and consecutive 7-4 seasons with all four ending in bi-district losses. The Panthers, following Longview’s step, will be looking to improve on last year’s defensive embarrassment as the Pack allowed 391 points last season in one of the worst defensive outputs in school history. Since 2006, the Panthers have seen their struggles grow. Lufkin has amassed a playoff record of 4-11. Longview welcomes Lufkin to Lobo Stadium looking to hold onto a streak 14 years in the making. The Panther make their 6th trip to Lobo Stadium since their last victory in Longview back in 2003. Since, the Lobos and Panthers have had some outstanding duels in the venue. In 2007, the Lobos saw a 24-0 lead disappear before holding on to knock off the Panthers 31-24. In 2008, Lufkin held a 20-9 lead in the 4th quarter before the Lobos clawed back to take the lead. The Pack tied the game on a last second field goal as the game entered overtime. Three overtimes later, the Lobos came out victorious in a 45-37 showdown. In 2011, Lufkin took a 10-0 lead early before Longview rattled off 24 unanswered points in a 24-10 victory. In 2013, after the Panthers took an early 14-7 lead in the 2nd quarter..Longview scooted off for 35-points in the third quarter in en route to a 55-30 victory, one of the highest scoring games in the series history. And in Lufkin’s last visit in 2015, the Lobos led through the contest before Lufkin scored a last minute touchdown only to have their extra point attempt blocked in a 21-20 victory for the Lobos. Overall, the two schools will be looking for another fantastic edition of the series. The two schools remain just one game apart in the long, storied series. Let the 80th edition begin.

Ford Stadium to be apart of the Tom Landry Classic against the Coppell Cowboys. Starting quarterback Bivins Caraway suffered a season ending second quarter injury after the Cowboys came storming out of the gate, in route to a 21-0 halftime lad for Coppell. The Lobos never got things going on the day, having to use a 3rd quarter extra point return and a last second hailmary touchdown to prevent from shutout by Coppell. The Cowboys racked up 287 yards passing, holding the Lobos to just 138 yards rushing in the 41-8 beat down. It remains one of the worst losses in the John King era for the Lobos.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES First Meeting FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW With the closing of the 107th regular season of football at Longview High, the Lobos turn to their 42nd appearance on the UIL State Playoffs as they travel to Beaumont to take on the West Brook Bruins. The trip to Beaumont, despite being co-champions of District 11-6A, will be Longview’s longest ever trip for a first round playoff game. Previously, the longest was two trips to Waco (1983 at Floyd Casey Stadium against Killeen Ellison and 2003 at Waco ISD Stadium against South Garland). The trip to Beaumont also marks the longest road trip for the Lobos (a little over 200 miles) since Longview traveled to Midland in 2000 to take on Cedric Benson and the two-time defending State Champion Midland Lee Rebels. The Lobos will enter the playoffs for the 13th consecutive season, all under head coach John King. The last time Longview missed the post season came in that 2000 season, when the Lobos finished 3-7 overall. Last season, Longview reached the State Quarterfinals for the first time since their Semi-Final appearance in 2010. The Lobos fell 56-53 to eventual State Finalist Mansfield Lake Ridge as the Lobos missed a game-tying field goal in the final 15 seconds of the contest. Despite it being the first time the Lobos reached round 4 in five seasons, Longview continued improved their streak of bi-district victories to 10. John King is 11-1 all-time in Bi-District games as head coach of Longview. The Lobos have also advanced to at least the third round of the UIL playoffs in 9 of the 12 seasons under coach King (failing to do so in 2005, 2006 & 2014). Standing in their way of an 11th straight bi-district victory is an extremely unfamiliar opponent in the West Brook Bruins of Beaumont. The Lobos have faced just one other opponent from Beaumont ISD in their history, the Beaumont Royal Purples. The Lobos and Purples met all the way back in 1940 and in 1942, with Longview’s lone trip to Beaumont being in the 1942 season. Longview won both games against the Royal Purples (7-0 and 20-7). Beaumont West Brook comes into the contest under 5th year head coach Kevin Flanigan, who’s currently experiencing his best season as head coach of the Bruins. Entering the 2016 season, Flanigan’s record stood at 21-21 overall, with four straight seasons of no more than 6 and no less than 4 losses. The last time West Brook themselves finished an entire season with 9 wins came in 2009, when the Bruins advanced to the 5A Division I Regional round. West Brook will be looking to win a 10th game of the season for the first time since 2007, when they finished 10-2. The Bruins will be looking to win their first playoff game since a bi-district victory over Pasadena Dobie in 2010. West Brook has lost four consecutive playoff games since the win. Only one of the four losses has been within 20 points. The winner will move onto the Area Round to take on Lake Highlands or Lakeview Centennial in the Area Round.

Following a 35-21 victory over the Heath Hawks, that saw the Lobos having to rebound from a 14-0 deficit, the Lobos clinched their 42nd playoff berth in school history with one game to play. Longview will close up shop on the 2016 regular season when they host the Mesquite Skeeters on Senior Night at Lobo Stadium. The Lobos haven’t lost on Senior Night since 2003 when Lufkin defeated Longview, 14-0. The Skeeters come in eliminated from playoff contention with a 1-5 district record and following a 47-27 loss to Rockwall. Mesquite’s only district win came against Tyler Lee when the Skeeters went for a 2-point conversion in the final minute of the contest to defeat the Red Raiders 57-56. The Lobos will have to wait to decide who their first round opponent is depending on their result AND John Tyler’s result. A John Tyler victory would assure Longview the long trip to Beaumont to take on Beaumont West Brook. A John Tyler loss opens up the possibility that could see the Lobos host Lufkin with a victory over Mesquite. WEEK TEN 11-6A SCHEDULE: John Tyler v.

After a bye week for all of 11-6A, the Lobos and Stallions meet for the first time since 2013 at the same place they met just three years ago…Mesquite’s Memorial Stadium. The Lobos (5-1) come in as the lone undefeated squad remaining in the district while North Mesquite’s (3-3) big upset of Rockwall Heath pulled them back into the four-way tie for 2nd place in the district at 2-1. A big reason for the Stallions victory was the return of starting quarterback, Ja’Quez Gooch, who was previously injured against Arlington Bowie a little over a month ago. Longview comes into their 7th game of the season off the heels of a big 36-29 win over Rockwall. The Lobo defense need two big defensive stands in the fourth quarter to seal the victory. The win marked Longview’s 36th consecutive victory at Lobo Stadium in district games and improved the Lobos to 69-4 all-time under John King in district games. One of those four losses came at the hands of North Mesquite, back in 2010 at Mesquite Memorial Stadium thanks to a guy named Joe Bergeron. That night, despite holding a 14-3 lead head into the 4th quarter, saw the Stallions rip apart the Lobo defense in the final frame in route to 21 unanswered points. Since that loss, the Lobos have outscored the Stallions by a combined 138-38 in the three games. The two schools meet for the 12th time on Friday night, in a series that dates back to 1971 in a season that saw just second year program North Mesquite pull off the victory 36-23 at Lobo Stadium. The two schools wouldn’t meet again until 1988 in a non-district series that saw the Lobos and Stallions split games. North Mesquite pulled off the dominating win in 1988, 28-14, at Lobo Stadium. Longview, however, came back in 1989 and rallied from a 12-0 deficit entering the fourth quarter to take home the win 15-12 at Mesquite Memorial. The two schools would have to wait until the UIL realignment of 2004 to meet again, where Longview has won the 7 of the 8 district contests between the two teams since. The Lobos will be looking to pull off their fourth straight win over the Stallions and move to 4-0 in district play as Longview continues to fight for their 12th district championship in 13 years.

Lee Red Raiders. The Lobos and Raiders first met in 1960 inside Lobo Stadium, where the Lobos walked away winners in a 47-8 schlacking. The two schools met every yet after that until the 2014 UIL realignment, which saw Longview drop to Class 5A while Lee moved to the newly created Class 6A. While the two schools were meeting on a yearly basis, the Lobos saw a lot of recent success over their Rose City counterparts. Longview has won 11 consecutive against Lee, with their last loss coming in an 18-14 homecoming setback back in 2003. In that contest, the Lobos saw a 14-3 halftime lead vanish in the second half when the Red Raiders scored 15 unanswered. The Red Raiders 2003 win marked the 6th win in 7 meetings between the two schools. It was the most successful run in the series for Lee and it ended a run that saw the Red Raiders win just two games over Longview in the prior 26 seasons. Most of Lee’s success came in the first 12 years of the series. The two schools each traded three game winning streaks over the other in those 12 years. Since then, Longview has run up a 34-8-2 record. The last meeting between the two schools came in 2013, when the Lobos struck for 42 points in the first half (28 in the first quarter) in a 63-7 blow out of the Raiders. Longview rolled up 522 total yards that night, including 270 passing yards. The two schools come into the contest in completely different mindsets. Longview, after suffering an opening week defeat, has rolled off three consecutive wins, including last week’s district opening victory over Mesquite Horn. Tyler Lee, after opening the 2016 season with a surprising 2-0 start, has watched their record fall to .500 after consecutive defeats. The Red Raiders suffered their greatest defeat of the season so far in a 34-7 loss to Rockwall Heath that opened district play. Longview’s win marked John King’s 67th win in 71 district games as head coach of the Lobos. First year head coach Clayton George for Lee fell to 0-1 in district play as head coach of the Red Raiders. Longview returns to Rose Stadium for the first time since their 2015 bi-district playoff victory over Lufkin. The win at Rose Stadium last November marked the 17th win out of their last 18 games held in Tyler. Only Longview’s 2014 area round defeat to Lake Ridge prevents the 100% record. The Lobos are 19-2 at Rose Stadium since their last loss to Tyler Lee in Tyler back in 2002.

In 1949, the Lobos saw their Tommy Rae touchdown go by the waist side as Paris knocked off Longview 13-6 in Noyes Stadium. In 1955, Tony Rothrock put home two touchdowns before three second half Lobo touchdowns to put the Razorbacks from Arkansas High away by a 39-6 win at Burham Field. The Lobos tallied 326 rushing yards while holding the Hogs to just 87 total. In 1960, Shreveport Byrd absolutely dominated Longview in a 34-0 blow out inside Lobo Stadium. In 1966, the Lobos traveled to Jones-Coward Stadium in Houston and came back with a 15-0 victory over Houston Smiley as Steve Judy’s 82 run in the first quarter was all Longview needed for the win. In 1977, Longview saw a 17-0 first half lead nearly disappear as Galveston Ball’s comeback bid fell just short in a 17-13 Lobo win. Jim Tutt’s field goal followed by Dinky Edwards and Greg Brown touchdowns were all the Lobos could manage on the night. In 1983, the Joe Johnson show went to work in the second quarter followed by a Leon Hendrix 92 yard punt return as the Lobos rolled over Tyler Lee, 29-11. Longview’s defense held the Red Raiders to just 149 total yards on the night. In 1988, Earnest Hunter racked up three first half touchdowns before adding the winning tally in the fourth quarter as the Lobos hung on to dear life in a 28-20 win over the Red Raiders of Tyler Lee. In 1994, despite trailing 24-0 after rate first quarter, Chris Butcher tallied three touchdowns to bring the Lobos back into the contest. But it wasn’t to be as Bryan held on for a 26-20 win. Bryan was held to just 114 total yards on the night and 7 first downs. In 2005, Hurricane Rita was all the news and it could be felt in the air as the Lobos traveled to face Mesquite for the first time since 1989. The game wasn’t as exciting as the hurricane action, as the Lobos rolled up 407 yards while holding the Skeeters to 92 total in a 48-0 victory.

After a three year layoff, in which the Lobos dropped to Class 5A and the Horn Jaguars moved over into a district with Richardson ISD, the two foes meet at the location of their last meeting..Lobo Stadium. A rivalry that has developed since their State Quarterfinal showdown in 2010, the Lobos and Jags have fought tooth and nail against one another in the three meetings since that playoff game, with the series sitting at 2-1 in those three games. Longview, who took the Quarterfinal game 28-14, as taken home two of those three. Overall, it's Longview that holds the 8-1 overall series lead that dates back to their first meeting in 2004. Only the 2012 meeting saw the Jags come out on top victorious, a game in which Longview was held to just 70 yards rushing on the night. It was Longview's second loss at E.H. Hanby Stadium that season, and their only season in which they have not walked away with at least a share of the district crown under head coach John King. The two schools are coming in both with 2-1 records, which has seen the Lobos rally from their season opening loss to Lufkin with two dominating performances over Marshall and South Oak Cliff by a combined 118-21. The Jaguars will be trying to rebound from their first loss of the season that came at the hands of Cedar Hill last Friday night. Horn opened the 2016 season with impressive performances over McKinney Boyd and Dallas Skyline. Longview comes into the contest riding a 9-game winning streak inside Lobo Stadium, but more impressively, riding a 35-game district winning streak at home. Longview's last loss in a district game at Lobo Stadium came in 2003 on homecoming night against #9 Tyler Lee, 18-14. John King, head coach of the Lobos since 2004, has never suffered a district home defeat and is a staggering 66-4 overall in district contests. The Horn Jags will be looking for their first ever win in Longview, after suffering 4 consecutive defeats. Horn's only single digit loss at Lobo Stadium came in 2010, when the Jags had an opportunity to bring home the win on the final drive of the game only to be stuffed and fall 13-8.

Greg Brown, Dinky Edwards, Reno Hutchins, Bobby Portley and Melvin Lewis all registered touchdowns in a 38-19 victory for Longview over Dallas Roosevelt.

The only word that can be expressed after Longview's 56-7 victory over arch rival Marshall last Friday night. The Lobos struck quick and fast in the first half building a 21-0 lead after one quarter, growing that lead to 42-7 at the halftime break. After last season’s 28-25 loss to the Mavericks, the Lobos made quick work to prove last season’s loss was an arbitration instead of a changing of the guard. The win gave Longview it’s 15th victory in their last 16 contests against Marshall. It was also the program’s 59th victory against the arch rival Mavericks. Kendrevian White was the work horse for the Lobos for the second straight week as he registered four touchdowns on the night, becoming the first Lobo to put home four touchdowns since Braylynn Anthony’s four touchdown night last season against Hallsville. The Lobos now return home for their home opener against a foe they haven’t faced since the early 1990s. It’s been 25 years since Longview and Dallas’s South Oak Cliff met on the gridiron, in a series that dates back to 1956. The two programs have met just five times over their histories, all at Longview’s Lobo Stadium (new and old). The only non-Longview victory came in 1962 during a 6-6 tie. The Lobos, for the most part, have dominated the overall series..especially the two previous encounters having outscored the Golden Bears 84-8. The two schools have started the 2016 season in quite opposite fashion. After both schools started the season 0-1, the two teams took very different routes in week two with Longview rolling 56-7 and South Oak Cliff falling apart to Lancaster 51-7. The Lobos will be hosting both Homecoming and Green Out events during the week three contest. Longview has not lost a Homecoming game since 2003 (an 18-14 loss to Tyler Lee), having won 12 consecutive. The Lobos are also 12-2 all-time during Green Out contests, losing just twice to Allen (2011) and John Tyler (2014). Longview also brings an 8-game home winning streak into the game, having only lost to John Tyler (41-25) in their last 21 home games. The game also pits Longview against a Dallas ISD school for the first time since 2008, when the Lobos knocked off Dallas Carter (35-20) in the Regional round of the 4A playoffs. Overall, Longview has registered a 45-8-2 record all-time against DISD schools. WEEK TWO 11-6A SCHEDULE: Longview vs South Oak Cliff John Tyler v.

In 1966, Longview shut out Dallas Adamson in Longview, 27-0. In 1977, the Lobos held Fort Worth Paschal to 77 total yards in a 24-0 victory for Longview.

In 1983, Longview shut out the Panthers of Fort Worth Paschal 28-0. Eric Harris, Charles Smith, O’Neal Jackson and Joe Johnson all tallied for the Lobos.

The 107th season of Longview football begins with the first of Class 6A football for the Lobo program. Returning to the top classification, after just two years in the second highest classification in Texas football, the Lobos face off against a very, very familiar team. Longview and Lufkin headline the opening weekend of the return of Texas High School football with their 79th meeting against one another, and their FIFTH in just three seasons. Since the start of the 2002 football season (just 14 years ago), when the two teams were drawn into a round robin district schedule along with Tyler Lee and John Tyler, the Lobos and Panthers have met a staggering 19 times (including four playoff meetings). Recently, the Lobos have gotten the best of the Pack recording a 6-1 record against Lufkin in the past 7 meetings. Since ending the streak in the second meeting of their 2007 season, the Lobos have recorded an 8-3 record against the Panthers. The past two seasons have seen the two schools open against one another, and face off against one another in the first round of the post season. That possibility remains after the UIL realignment placed Longview in 11-6A and Lufkin 12-6A. With the height of the rivalry, has come some unforgettable games. Most recently, Longview’s 43-42 playoff victory in 2014 in which the Lobos overcame a 28 point deficit to knock the Panthers out of the post season. The following meeting, the 2015 season opener, saw just as close of a contest with Lufkin scoring late looking to tie the game only to have a block PAT be the difference in a 21-20 victory for Longview. The last meeting between the two schools marked the 9th postseason meeting between them. With the dominating 2nd half, the Lobos walked away with the 31-10 win and their 5th playoff win over the Panthers. This season, however, the Lobos head down to Lufkin to a place that has not been kind to them over the years. Longview has lost 9 of their last 10 games at Abe Martin Stadium, with their lone win coming in 2012 with a 45-14 victory. Lufkin comes into the 2016 season with a much different outlook as opposed to Longview, who is fresh off a visit to the State Quarterfinals and has gone at least three rounds deep in 8 of the last 9 seasons. The Panthers, 7-4 on the season in 2015, saw a loss in the first round for the first consecutive season. The Panthers also failed to reach the third round of the postseason for the 9th time in their past 10 seasons. That includes 7 losses in bi-district play. The only time the Pack have reached the 3rd round in the past decade came in 2012 when the Panthers saw a valiant comeback effort come up short in a 55-52 playoff loss to Plano West. The goal for Lufkin this season will be to finally punched through the bubble on their lack of success come playoff time. One thing is to be known for sure, when the Lobos and Panthers get together, something magically is set to happen. A rivalry started in 1932, continues 84 years later.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES 11.22.2014 - Mansfield Lake Ridge 37 Longview 35 - Rose Stadium FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW December football has returned to Longview. After four seasons of 3 Regional rounds and 1 Area round miscues and mistakes, the Lobos dominated the Wylie Pirates from the get go in a 35-14 victory inside the comfy confines of AT&T Stadium. The win marked Longview’s first win at the home of the Cowboys since the 2nd to last game ever at Texas Stadium, a 41-30 victory over Denton Guyer in the 4A State Semi-Final. The win also pushed Longview’s record to 11-2 on the season, the 8th time the Lobos have reached at least 11 wins under head coach John King. With the win, Longview heads back to AT&T Stadium for the 5A Division I State Quarterfinal…marking the 13th time in program history the Lobos have reached the Quarterfinal round. Awaiting them is a foe that ended their season the previous year in 2014, Mansfield Lake Ridge. The Eagles come into the contest with a healthy 13-0 record, having rarely been tested on the season and are a week off from producing over 700 yards of offense against the Poteet Pirates. The Lobos will rely on their defense to win the game, a defense that has yet to give up more than four scores in a contest, and has allowed just four once all season long. The lowest the Eagles have been held to, point wise, was against Keller Fossil when they scored just 30 points. Lake Ridge has scored 50 or more points in each of the last 6 weeks. The Lobos will be looking to win their 60th overall playoff game as they enter into the contest, with their last Quarterfinal win coming against Mesquite Horn in 2010.

Despite a 99 yard touchdown pass given up in the 3rd quarter, Longview would not be denied and rolled all over #3 and undefeated Waxahachie, 50-26.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES First Meeting. FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW Redemption. It was something that was on the minds of most fans heading into last Friday’s Bi-District round contest between Longview and Lufkin. Would Lufkin get similar redemption that Longview had achieved the previous season after falling in the first match up of the two teams during the regular season? For the second consecutive season the Lobos and Panthers met in the bi-district round of the UIL playoffs after meeting each other in the regular season. Unlike 2014, however, the Lobos removed any doubt of a similar ending as they took control with two 3rd quarter touchdowns and stretched it to a three touchdown deficit for the Panthers early in the 4th quarter to knock off Lufkin, 31-10. The win marked Longview’s third consecutive over the Pack since falling in embarrassing fashion to open the 2014 season, 44-14, at Abe Martin Stadium. It was Longview’s 6th win in their last 7 meeting against the Pack, and also gave them the overall playoff lead between the two schools at 5-4. The 9th meeting between the Lobos and Panthers in post season play marked the most meetings for any opponent in post season for the Lobos by a good margin. The 5 playoff wins over Lufkin is now tied for most over a single school in team history, tied now with Killeen Ellison (who Longview has a 5-1 playoff record against). The bi-district victory also gave Longview their 10th consecutive bi-district victory, a feat that seemed unrealistic just 10 years ago when Longview saw their 2005 season end to South Garland 14-13. Longview also won their 9th game of the season for the 12th consecutive year under John King, with the last time the Lobos not achieving at least 9 wins in a season coming in 2003. Now the Lobos turn towards redemption themselves as they move forward to the Area Round where a 10-1 state ranked Mansfield Summit Jaguar team awaits. Last season, the Lobos saw a Mansfield Lake Ridge squad come into Rose Stadium and knock the Lobos out of the post season before the third round for the first time since 2006. The question turns to, can Longview overcome the mini hurdle that has become the Mansfield ISD squads. The Jaguars are enjoying their best season in school history, sitting at 10-1, with it’s only loss to those Lake Ridge Eagles by a 55-35 scoreline. After a slow start in their own bi-district contest that saw them lead by just a 6-0 over Dallas Kimball, the Jags woke up in the second half and dominated the Knights 35-7. For Summit, they will be looking for their first ever area round victory. The Lobos will return to DeSoto’s Eagle Stadium for the first time since a 2010 contest against DeSoto that saw them knock off the heavily favorited #7 Eagles, 38-35, to claim a share of the district championship. Longview is 2-0 all-time at Eagle Stadium, with the Lobos’ other victory coming in a 1998 victory 16-10 over DeSoto.

In 1930, Jefferson scored two touchdowns in the first quarter and Longview never recovered as the Loboes fell 19-13 to Jefferson at Fair Park. In 1931, James Hill started the score and Wendell Harper added two more touchdowns as Longview controlled the game from the get go in a 24-6 victory Jacksonville. In 1936, the Lobos dominated Marshall 34-0 at Lobo Stadium to clinch the 9-1A district title. In 1942, Dean Sanford blocked a punt and returned it for a score to set up the rest of the night as Longview dominated Marshall 28-7 at Lobo Stadium to clinch the district championship. In 1953, George Myers tallied a touchdown and took a 7-0 lead into the 2nd quarter only to see the Tigers of Texas High take over as Texarkana rolled to a 27-7 victory. In 1959, the Lobos rolled up 263 years rushing as Douglas Bruner and Ray Chancelor both scored two touchdowns in a 47-6 victory over Lufkin to secure a share of the district championship. In 1964, Lufkin helped Longview close the season with a 14-8 victory over the Lobos at Lobo Stadium. Mike Maberry’s reception was the Lobos’ lone score on the night that saw the Lobos hold the Pack to just 162 total yards on the day. In 1993, Longview battled Temple to a 7-7 tie going into halftime, but it wasn’t to be on the day as the Lobos fell 28-7 to the Wildcats behind two touchdown from Delarrius Wilson. L’Vendric Fite was Longview’s only score on the day. In 2004, Vondrell McGee opened things up in the first quarter and helped spear head a 513 yard rushing day from the Lobos as Longview rolled over Dallas Jesuit in the rain, 44-14. The win ended Jesuit’s first ever season in the UIL. In 2010, the Lobos rushed out to a 17-0 lead at halftime before a back and forth 2nd half saw the Lobos knock off the Colonels of South Garland. The Lobos held the Colonels to just 175 total yards on the day.

The Lobos and Panthers meet for the second consecutive season in the bi-district round of the UIL playoffs, and the same setting will take place as the two squads meet for the 3rd time ever at Rose Stadium in Tyler. It will be the 9th time in Lobo history that Longview has met an opponent in back to back years, the first since meeting Rowlett in back to back bi-district games in 2012 and 2013, and the second time the Lobos and Panthers will meet back to back (1936 and 1937). Along with this game being the fourth meeting between the two schools in just the past two years, Longview and Lufkin will meet for the 9th time overall in post season play. Both teams have 4 wins a’piece. This is the fourth playoff meeting since 2002, with Longview winning last year’s game in record breaking fashion with a 28 point comeback and a two point conversion to pull out the victory 43-42. This all marks just the fourth regular season rematch in Lobo history, with three of them coming against Lufkin. After squaring off in the opening week of the season, a game that saw the Lobos block an extra point to pull away with a 21-20 victory, Longview went on to grab a share of the district championship and finish the regular season with an 8-2 record for the second straight season. Lufkin, on the other hand, finished 2nd in district play and finished with a 7-3 record with one win being decided by coin flip, their best record since finishing 9-4 in 2012. Not much hasn’t already been said about Longview and Lufkin when comes to their rivalry. It’s a rivalry that dates back to 1932, and has seen pretty much everything you could imagine. From 4th quarter comebacks, like Longview’s 12 point 4th quarter to knock Lufkin out of the post season in 1940, to back and forth games, like Lufkin’s 35-32 victory in 1955 that included a 46 point 2nd half. From the district title games of the 1970s to the overtime games in 1998 and 2008. From seeing over 30,000 at SFA in the 2004 playoff game to the unreal comeback in last season’s comeback victory for Longview. It’s a 77 game history, going on 78 after Friday night, that continues to be one of the best rivalries in the state of Texas. And one that is as close as could be.

With the district championship on the line, it was the Lions who were celebrating at the end of the night having won the tiebreaker on penetrations 2 to 1. The Lobos’ lone penetration of the night ended on a fumble at the 13 yard line. In 1964, John Tyler book ended the 1st and 4th quarters with scores in the 2nd and 3rd to escape Rose Stadium with a 14-0 victory over the Lobos. Longview was held to just 86 yards on the night. In 1970, Longview was held to just 91 yards in the season finale as the Lobos fell to Lufkin, 7-0. Clifford Davis scored the only touchdown of the night from 9 yards out in cold, rainy night at Lobo Stadium. In 1981, Longview’s Donnie Centers saved the day against Pine Tree in two ways. First, he picked off a pass with 2:13 left on the clock on his own 2-yard line as the Pirates were looking for the winning score. Then, he caught the winning touchdown pass with 1:17 left from 36 yards out and the Lobos escaped Lobo Stadium with a 13-7 victory over cross town rival Pine Tree. In 1987, Terance Carter hauled in a 62 yard pass late in the first quarter and the Lobos never looked back as they knocked off Killeen Ellison inside Texas Stadium, 28-10, in the Bi-District Round. Ray Allison, Kevin Middleton and Mike Tidwell all added scores for the Lobos. In 2004, the Lobos traveled to Williams Stadium in Garland fresh off a 10-0 regular season. With Raider players talking all week in the Dallas paper, the Lobos put quick work to their bi-district opponents, as the Vondrell McGee show took over. McGee tallied five touchdowns, four in the first half, as the Lobos ran for 403 yards rushing and tallied up 515 total yards in a 49-27 victory. In 2009, Trey Metoyer caught a 69 yard pass in the first quarter to send chills up an upset over Longview fans early on against Whitehouse. However, in the 2nd quarter, the Lobos took complete control. The Lobos rushed for 378 yards on the night racking up 508 total yards and holding the Wildcats to -4 on the night in a 52-9 victory. 7 different Lobos tallied touchdowns on the night for Longview. It was Longview’s first home playoff game since 1984. In 2010, fresh off an upset of #7 DeSoto just a week prior, the Lobos opened their post season run against David Ash and Belton. Despite just a 3-0 lead after one quarter, the Lobos took complete control in the 2nd with LaDarrin Robertson rushing for three touchdowns.The Lobos rushed for 266 yards on the night and knocked off Tigers, 52-28.

Just as fast as it had started, Longview strolls into Hallsville for the 4th all-time meeting between the Lobos and the Bobcats to end the regular season..looking to clinch a share of the district 15-5A title and clinch the top spot in Division I. If the Lobos were to win, it would be the 12th consecutive season they will enter the post season with the #1 seed in their respective division. Longview closed off their home portion of the regular season with a dominating 48-10 victory over the Wildcats of Sulphur Springs, sending the ‘Cats to their 12th straight win and clinching their 15th straight post season appearance. The win also was Longview’s 34th consecutive home district victory. Hallsville made their statement last week with a clinching victory to return to the post season with a 58-24 win over Pine Tree at Pirate Stadium. It will be the Bobcats’ 6th playoff appearance in 11 years under current head coach David Plunk. Last season, the Bobcats came into Lobo Stadium needing a victory to clinch a playoff spot…and walked out with their season ending from a 42-28 loss (coupled with Marshall defeated Sulphur Springs by a certain amount). So while the game doesn’t have as much significance for Hallsville as it did last season, Longview must win to claim that top spot in D1 and to hold onto a spot for the district title, as both Texas High and Marshall are tied with the Lobos at 5-1 in district play.

In 1931, the Lobos knocked off Kilgore 19-6 at Fair Park in Longview. In 1953, the Panthers of Lufkin handed Longview a tough loss with a 14-13 victory at Panther Stadium in Lufkin. In 1959, the Lobos held a 6-0 lead going into the 4th quarter against Texas High at Grim Park. Raymond Van changed that for Texarkana with a 9 yard run to give the Tigers an 8-6 lead. However, Ray Chancelor answered immediately and the Lobos walked out of the Border City with a 14-8 victory. In 1964, the Lobos hung on strong for a 12-0 victory over Texarkana at Lobo Stadium. In 1970, Jeb Blount kicked two field goals and James Lomax ran in from two yards out as the Lobos came from behind to knock off Texas High, 12-7, at Grim Park. The Tigers were ranked 10th in the state coming in before the upset victory by Longview. In 1981, the Lobos grabbed a 10-6 lead midway through the 4th quarter on an 11 yard reception from Tony Kindle and looked poised to add to it driving to the John Tyler seven yard line. But disaster came and in an instant the Lobos lost all hope of a victory and a district title. A fumble by Gahlen Johnson on the Cujo 7 yard line gave JT the ball back only to be followed up by a 89 yard pass reception to Willie Walker. William Oliver added on with 20 seconds left from 5 yards out as the Lions knocked off Longview, 19-10. In 1987, leading by only a point at halftime..the Lobos erupted for 27 points in the 2nd half behind two touchdowns each from Ray Allison and Mike Bobo in a 34-12 victory over Pine Tree at Pirate Stadium. The Lobos rolled up 356 yards rushing and 25 first downs in the victory. In 1992, L’Vendric Fite scored from one yard out 4 seconds into the 4th quarter and Daydrion Taylor ended the night with a 21 yard interception return for the score in a 13-0 victory over Marshall. The win gave Longview it’s second straight district championship. In 1998, Fred Talley scored four touchdowns and rolled up a school record 387 yards rushing to cap his Lobo career as the Lobos dominated Nacogdoches, 27-0, at Dragon Stadium. The 387 yards remains a Lobo record as the birthday boy that night capped the greatest (statistical) career any Lobo has ever had. In 2003, Longview fumbles three times and threw two more interceptions as the #1 Lufkin Panthers held off the Lobos in a 14-0 victory at rainy Lobo Stadium. The 14-0 shut out was the last time the Lobos have been shut out. Jorvorskie Lane and Ashford Ayers scored the runs for the Pack in the victory.

After falling to rival Marshall, 28-25, the week prior for the first time in 15 years, the Lobos hosted Texas High who hadn’t beaten the Lobos since 1984. On Saturday morning, that streak continues as the Lobos rolled out to a 28-0 lead and held on for a 35-14 victory over the Tigers. The win was Longview’s 11th consecutive over Texas High and 40th overall in the series that dates back to 1922. With the win, Longview all but clinched the top seed in the Division I bracket of the playoffs with three games to play unless there are any upsets along the way. Enter, the Mount Pleasant Tigers. Mount Pleasant is fresh off an 0-10 season last year that has seen them improve greatly in Corey Homer’s second season as head coach of the Tigers and right in the thick of the 15-5A playoff race. A win against Longview would do wonders for Mount Pleasant’s playoff chances after dropping a pivotal game against the Pine Tree Pirates. The Tigers are currently tied with Hallsville for the 4th place spot but the Bobcats have the tiebreaker. The Lobos travel to Mount Pleasant for the first time since 2009, and for only the second time since 1928. In all, it will be Longview’s 5th visit to Mount Pleasant where they have yet to lose a game. The Lobos have won four in a row against the Tigers in a series that dates back to 1924 but have seen the two schools face off only 10 previous times. In those 10 meetings, Mount Pleasant has scored more than 10 points in just one contest…the one game they were able to defeat Longview (31-11 in 1930). Longview will be looking for their fifth victory in a row over the Tigers, a streak that dates back to the 1954 season. A win for Longview would keep their district championship hopes alive, as undoubtedly most eyes of Lobo fans will be glued to the Texas High/Marshall contest right up the road in Texarkana.

In 1942, J.T Jeffress, Robert Cowley and Ken Abney all went over the goal line for the Lobos in a 21-0 beat down of Kilgore inside R.E. St. John Memorial Stadium. In 1964, David Reese and Glenn Cobb scored first quarter touchdowns for the Lobos but it was all the scoring Longview would do for the day as Tyler Lee scored 22 unanswered in a 22-14 victory over Longview inside Lobo Stadium. In 1981, a 57 yard flea flicker between John Jean and Tracy Holmes in the fourth quarter sent Texas High to an upset victory over the Lobos, 14-11. Jimmy Motley grabbed the early lead for Longview on a safety before Ronnie Hunter scored the only Lobo touchdown of the day. in 1987, Marshall jumped out to a 20-7 lead before Mike Bobo went to work. Three touchdowns later, the Lobos took control. Earnest Hunter sealed the victory on a 7 yard run in the fourth quarter as the Lobos knocked off the Mavs 34-22 inside Lobo Stadium. In 1992, LaMarcus white ran for three touchdowns and 261 yards rushing to bolster Longview’s 482 yard rushing day in a 42-14 shellacking of Tyler Lee at Rose Stadium.

In 2009, Carey Fortson returned the opening kickoff all the way for a touchdown and the Lobos rolled all night long to a 45-0 victory over Hallsville at Bobcat Stadium.

The Lobos and Mavericks meet on the gridiron for the 105th time, with Marshall’s Maverick Stadium the setting for this potential 15-5A District Championship match up. The Lobos, fresh off their first shutout since 2012 in a 51-0 romping of Greenville, head into Maverick Stadium full of confidence after back to back 51+ point margin victories to open district play. One of those 51+ point margin victories came against crosstown rival Pine Tree as the Lobos defeated Pine Tree two weeks ago 61-6 in Lobo Stadium. That same team, took Marshall down to the wire in last week’s second district game for the Mavs as Marshall struggled all night long before pulling out a 35-28 nail biter. The win improved Marshall to 2-0 in district play, and 5-0 overall for the first time since 1996. The Lobos and Mavericks will meet for the 105th time this coming Friday, and for the 83rd consecutive season…dating back to the 1933 season. And while the series is one of the longest in the state of Texas, the Lobos and Mavericks haven’t exactly been the closest of competitors. In 1968, the Mavericks defeated Longview 20-3 in Lobo Stadium…the following season began a streak that saw the Lobos defeated Marshall 19 consecutive seasons. Following 12 seasons of battling back and forth, the Lobos currently are trying to match the previous streak..holding a 14-game winning streak over the Mavericks that dates back to the 2001 season. During the streak, the Lobos and Mavericks have battled to just four contests that have been decided by two scores or less. Last season, the Lobos defeated Marshall 56-13 inside Lobo Stadium. Marshall hasn’t scored more than three scores on Longview since a 30 point night in 2009 during a 47-30 loss. The 56 points were the most a Longview team has ever scored on a Marshall squad, and just the second time the Lobos have scored 50 on Marshall. Marshall opened the series with an 18-2-2 series lead in the first 22 games from 1909 to 1931. After taking a year off in 1932, the Lobos and Mavs have met every year (82 seasons). In those games, Longview is 56-23-3. Since the original streak started in 1969, the Lobos are 37-8-0 against Marshall. The Lobos also returned to Marshall for the first time since a 26-14 victory over the Mavs in Maverick Stadium. In the new Maverick Stadium, Longview has found it almost as a home away from home…sporting a 13-4-0 record with the first match up happening in 1981 there. The Lobos haven’t lost in Marshall since 2000, where they fell 38-28. Regardless of past games, this week’s game has potential to be for the 15-5A district championship. Marshall has not won a district championship since 2005, while Longview is looking for their 11th district championship in 12 seasons under John King.

The Lobos and Lions meet for just the fourth time in their history and only the second time ever in Greenville. The last time Longview went to Greenville, they suffered their worst playoff defeat in their history by a 47-6 thrashing from the defending State Champions at the time. At the top of the Texas High School mountain at the time, a lot has changed for the Lions since. After ending a 40-game losing streak last season, the Lions opened the 2015 season with another victory over North Garland.

On the flip side, the Lobos enter the contest with a 17-game district winning streak dating back to 2012. The 17 game district winning streak is the 2nd longest in Longview’s history, tied with the 17 games from 1975 to 1977. The longest district winning streak is 36, between 2004 to 2010.
