Hallsville Vs. Lucas LoveJoy

Recommended Posts

I'm not real sure why this game is being played in Forney! Van's new stadium could have been a better selection as far as half way for both teams! Advantage Lovejoy!

Looks like Lovejoy made the 4A move with ease. Kinda impressed and expect Lovejoy to win. Tough matchup for Hallsville. Hopefully the Bobcats can win this one.

Van's stadium is very nice, but it has nothing on City Bank Stadium in Forney. We Jackrabbit fans will roll out the welcome mat for both teams. As for Lovejoy, Forney playeed the Leopards in Week 0 and lost big. This team is big, fast and has made the jump to 4A without blinking an eye. Hoping for a good game come Friday.

What does Lovejoy do on offense? Are they balanced with the run and the pass? Do they favor one over the other? Do they win with offense or does their defense keep them going?

Lovejoy mixes it up between run and pass and they are not predictable. They run a no huddle hurry up offense that makes it tough for the defense to substitute.

This is the first post on any forum where I've seen this years Lovejoy team described as big and/or fast. Those words come up in describing them, but it's normally lead by a "NOT". They are fairly well disciplined, execute well, play hard, more athletic than they look and will run through walls for their coach. Nobody takes a play off. East Texas is a hard match up for Lovejoy because East Texas teams are equally disciplined but more athletic. Lovejoy has to play mistake free football and make quick coaching adjustments (something the previous staff failed at, you can't attempt adjustments at halftime).

Lovejoy gave up 30 points or more only twice. One was with backups in after we were up 42-0. The second time was against an excellent Wylie East Offense with multiple D1 players. I don't think they are as easy to score on as you might think.

Anyone know the Hallsville scouts? There were 4 of them at the Wylie East @ Lovejoy game. They stayed the whole game (ended after 11). I curious about what they thought about both teams. They weren't talkative after the game.

Hallsville is a very talented team.. their only losses came to very good football teams.. they lost the opener to White House that game was 21-18 well in the 4th quarter before a blocked punt returned for a Td changed the whole momentum for WH. They lost by 7 to sulpher springs and loss by 6 on a game winning Td with less than 1 minute left to mount pleasant. So this is not a bad team at all it will closer then most think.. I'm hearing from sources that hallsville is very confident they will win this game.

I'm expecting a hard fought game. I've been checking out Hallsville's record all season. They played a tough schedule. I don't know what kind of size or speed they have.

Since new head coach and his OC were together at Lake Travis for mulitple state titles as the OC and WR coach, I would say get ready for whatever they do to be faster paced than anything Hallsville has seen all year. Everyone who has seen Lake Travis play knows that they are going to try to score as fast and as often as possible, but make no mistake those guys play fantastic defensive football, which only means they pride themselves with that. Lovejoy will be no different. They will score fast and fly to the ball. Why, because that's what good football teams do. They don't favor one over the other, they favor all 3 phases. They will take exactly what Hallsville gives them and have a plan for every single wrinkle. Big time edge to Lovejoy!

Disagree! Hallsville played SS in week 8. SS averages 68 offensive plays a game. Lovejoy averages 60.

 

JMO, Lovejoy looks a lot like SS to me just slower at the skill positions on offense and much more disciplined on defense.
