FULL GAME LOG

 

GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW:

The opening of the 2014 football season draws the 75th edition of Longview against Lufkin. The Lobos and Panthers first met in 1932, where Lufkin walked away with a 34-0 victory at old Panther Stadium. Since then, the two schools have fought to a even line with last season's victory by Longview evening up the series at 35 all with four ties in between. Only two teams have played Longview more than the Lufkin Panthers have, the two being Marshall and John Tyler, but no school has played Longview more in the post season with 7 meetings in the post season between the two schools. After a two year run of being district teammates, the next five meetings between the two schools came in bi-district action, with Longview winning 3 of the 5. The next two postseason match ups came in 2002 and 2004, with Lufkin walking away with both games. Last season, Lufkin took a 3-0 lead after the end of the first quarter before the Lobos exploded in the second for a school record 35 points to take a 35-10 halftime lead. Battling back and forth in the second half, the Lobos knocked off Lufkin 55-30. The 55 points marked the second time in school history the Lobos had scored 50 on Lufkin, the last being in a 62-0 drumming in 1958. Longview managed 490 total yards against the Lufkin defense, the second consecutive season the Lobos have netted over 445 yards against a Panther team. The win also marked Longview's fourth consecutive win over the Panthers at Lobo Stadium dating back to a 31-24 win in 2007. The current three game winning streak for Lobos started in 2011 when Longview rebounded from a 10-0 deficit to knock off the Panthers 24-10. The two touchdown victory was the first time since 1997 that Longview had knocked off the Panthers by at least two scores. The next season, the Lobos improved upon stretch by defeating the Panthers by a 45-14 score..the largest margin of victory for Longview (31) since a 44-6 victory at Lobo Stadium in 1976. The more important stat for Longview though was their first win at Abe Martin Stadium since 1999, a span of eight games. The 45 points scored at Abe Martin Stadium by Longview was the most the Lobos had ever scored there, and the most scored in Lufkin since a 47-6 victory in 1959. Both teams enter the 2014 dropping down to the newly created Class 5A. For Longview, a return to their 2008/2009 district where Longview went 12-0 in district play between the two seasons. For Lufkin, they drop from the top classification for the first time since the 1920s. The Lobos are coming off a season that saw their own mistakes due them in with two defensive touchdowns being the final marker that ended a Longview season that set numerous school passing records. John King returns for his 11th season as Longview head coach, lacking just 10 victories to become the winningest coach in school history behind Doug Cox. The Lobos are 5-5 under John King in opening week play, having lost their previous two to Coppell. However, historically, Longview is quite impressive in opening week play. The Lobos have managed a 66-31-7 all-time record in those games, with the longest streak of consecutive wins ending in 1983 after 19 straight wins. The Panthers come into the 2014 season looking to rebound from their most disappointing season in quite some time. Todd Quick returns for his 3rd season as Pack head coach, looking to rebound from Lufkin's first losing season since finishing 4-6-1 in 1995. Lufkin saw their opening week unbeaten streak end in 2012 at 19 straight games when John Tyler knocked off the Panthers, 35-21. Lufkin returned to their winning ways in opening week games last season though, as the Panthers put on a show rebounding from an early deficit and finishing off with a 52-28 victory over the Lions. Despite the recent success for Longview against Lufkin, and their last visit to Abe Martin being a victory, Lufkin itself has not been a kind place for the Lobos in the past decade. Longview had one of the more impressive records at Abe Martin Stadium following their 28-17 victory there in 1997, improving their then record at the stadium to 9-4-0. Since then, a train wreck. The first five games of their eight game losing streak in Lufkin, the Lobos saw the Panthers completely dominate the first half of play only to have to claw their way back into it to make the game look more respectable than it probably should've been, with all five of the games being won by at least two scores. The closest Longview came to winning during the losing streak came in 2007, with Lufkin rallying from down 13 to score with 1:09 remaining in the game to win 16-13. In 2010, the Lobos again had a 13-0 lead in the 2nd quarter, only to have Lufkin hold the Lobos on fourth down at the Panther four as time ran out to secure the Pack 28-21 win. Longview will be rolling into Lufkin to start the 2014 looking for their first four game winning streak over the Panthers since a five game winning streak that stretched from 1989 to 1993. The longest winning streak for the Lobos in the series was a six game winning streak from 1980 to 1985. Lufkin's, of course, is their infamous 11-game winning streak that stretched from 1999 to 2007. The 11-game losing streak is by far the longest losing streak to a single team in school history, with only two other schools even reaching the six game mark (Marshall and Shreveport Byrd).

ON THIS DATE IN LOBO HISTORY: August 29th

In 2003, Marshall out gained Longview 379 to 249 at Maverick Stadium but it didn't matter. Seven Maverick turnovers did the job as the Lobos grabbed a 28-0 halftime lead en route to a 49-16 season opening victory. Vondrell McGee marked his first two touchdowns as a Lobo in the second half.

In 2008, Longview opened the season at the eventual state champion Allen Eagles and battled to a 7-7 half-time scoreline. However, five fumbles (one lost) did Longview in during the second half as two touchdowns in the 3rd quarter were all the Eagles needed to knock off the Lobos 21-7. Longview out gained the Eagles 343 to 260 but it wasn't enough. The loss was the third straight season opening game loss for the Lobos, the longest stretch of opening season game losses since the early 1950s.

Lasted until June 1st until I couldn't hold off posting it anymore. Ready to start talking games. Couldn't think of a better way to start of the season than against Lp. Should be a fun one.

I'll be shocked if the Lobos don't run them out of the stadium, honestly.

 

I've been to some epic Lufkin/Longview games in the last 10+ seasons (playoffs and regular season) .......but it appears these are two programs headed in different directions in 2014.

 

JMHO.

They'll still be Lufkin.

 

I'm interested to see where they go from last season for sure. I have no problem with saying I was scared of playing Lufkin back in the early 2000s. It's pretty amazing how fast that changed to where I actually expect a win against them now. They're definitely not the Lufkin that was there when Outlaw was, but even his last couple of seasons you could feel the program was on a decline. How much of one remains to be seen. They'll no doubt benefit from dropping down and they'll definitely have a better season than last year, but we'll see how much.

 

Just can't see them beating us in the first game with all we have returning. The biggest thing from last year was that one fumble was all it took for their boys' heads to drop, and from there...they just couldn't pick their heads back up. That'll be key for them to not get so down if they are to improve from last year. Talent is definitely still there. Just not as much.

Predication may be understandable..but to be shocked if the Lobos don't blow em out? Uhh....

 

First game of the season, and its at Abe....a place we've only won at once since 1997. Another key stat, King is 5-5 in season openers. As for personnel, offensively they have the tools to have one of the best units. 6A or 5A that was going to happen. Cumbie returns at QB, Sowell returns at RB, the wideouts will be good with Coutee, Mark and Rodgers..Coutee being one of the best WR's on the recruiting market. Offensive line will be good too.

 

Think Longview wins it by 10-14 because what LP has in offense, they lack in defense. LP's defense will have their hands full with Longview's offense. Hasty went for 200+ on them last season and Chumley didn't take it easy on em either. Also don't think LP will have the depth that Longview will have in the trenches.

whoa kemosabe...you'll get yurs a week after

Longview is an open book they don't change anything. They do one thing well which is run the ball. They use their passing game to keep teams from loading up on the run.

Longview is a I formation first. Using the spread opens up their offense, but it is for all intensive purposes a run team.

Maybe this type of thinking is the reason y'all are 1-10 against the Lobos this decade.

I think I am going to take the word from fans that watch Longview all the time not folks that get too see them running in the endzone. I bet Longview runs the ball to control the clock cause they have a big lead lol.

Longview will always be the best when their running game is on, but 2 of the past 3 seasons have been the best passing years in Longview history. And coming into this season, Longview has two true quarterbacks for the first time in who knows how long (maybe in school history).

 

Anyone who says Longview doesn't change anything...and our passing game is just to open up our running game has not watched a Lobo football game in the past three years. Just a crazy crazy statement.
