Scrimmage Week: Texas High at Longview

Recommended Posts

Thought we'd have a scrimmage thread for the scrimmage this coming Friday. Tigers visiting Lobo Stadium, with varsity scrimmage starting around 7 PM. 

Lobos open their defending State Champion season with their lone scrimmage of the season. Second time the two teams have ever scrimmaged against one another, with the only other time being last season up in Texarkana.

Longview had a 16-0 season last season, ending with the 6A Division II State Title coming back to East Texas, while Texas High had their worst season since finishing 5-5 in 2000, with their 3-7 record. 

Lobos and Tigers know each other very well, having met 63 previous times on the gridiron. Longview is 40-22-1 in games between the two schools, with the Lobos having won the past 11 meetings. Texas High's last victory in Longview came in 1984, when the Tigers escaped Longview with a 6-0 victory. Texas High hasn't beaten Longview at Grim Park since 1980, a 10-8 Tiger win. 

Two teams in very different places right now, but hopefully it can be a solid scrimmage this Friday night at Lobo Stadium.

Gonna be watching the o-line the entire game. I won't even be watching the ball. Just the o-line. They really need to come together right away.

This and I want them to target CB2 early and often.

Yesterday was just to much.  At least in the evening the sun isn't right on you on the home side. It will still be hot, though. Oh well. 

 

GO LOBOS!

Any Tiger fan willing to let us know what they have coming back? I know it was a rough year, but not sure how much they have returning from that squad.

A strong T High is better for all of East Texas, imo. Hope y'all get back there.

Look for Texas High to be much improved. That is if Longview doesn't leave the Tigers crippled.

i think t-high is better this year but not sure how much better their record will be.

LB smith is a player not sure who else to watch.

I just want some players in different color jerseys to hit. Not expecting top-notch competition, just want to see how we execute.

Tried finding something in the Texarkana newspaper about the Tigers and their fall so far, but not a peep there.

All the chatter there is probably surrounding PG.

I personally know the dad of a couple of players on the Tiger squad and according to him there is an air of great optimism surrounding this year's team.  They will be breaking in a new qb who was a wide receiver last year that has good size, a good arm, and good wheels.  They should have plenty of quality receivers.  The rbs are average and overall, the success of the offense is going to depend on the o-line and the long term health of the team.  I watched a practice and they were slinging it around pretty well.  We will have to see how they fare against outside competition.  Going against a defending state champion may or may not be an accurate gauge of the Tigers but hopefully they can hold their own against LV and both teams get out of the scrimmage healthy.  I don't know much about the defense but hopefully they have more size this season especially at linebacker.

The varsity portion is set to begin at 7 p.m. with each unit, first and second team, getting two sessions of 12-snaps. That will be followed by a special teams segment and will conclude with a 15-minute live half.

Excited to be able to head back to the View for this.

It's not real football, but at least it's something.
