FULL GAME LOG

GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
Perfection. For the second consecutive season, the Longview Lobos finished their regular season with a perfect 10-0 record. This year's squad ended the season with a dominating 49-14 victory over the Mesquite Skeeters. Longview, winners of 26-consecutive games dating back to last season's perfect 16-0 squad, tied the second longest district winning streak in school history with their 18th straight district win. It was Longview's 3rd victory at E.H. Hanby Stadium in the last five weeks. But now, it's time for some playoff football. And the Temple Wildcats come calling as the Wildcats visit Longview for the time since 82 years. Temple's last visit to Longview came in 1937, in the Class 1A State Quarterfinals. where the Lobos fell behind 12-6 at halftime before a 40-yard pass reception int he third quarter put the Lobos on top 13-12. Frank Lebus finished the game off with a 3-yard run in the 4th quarter as Longview knocked off Temple, 19-12. Friday's contest between Longview and Temple will be the sixth overall meeting between the two programs, and fifth playoff meeting. Longview traveled to Woodson Field in Temple in 1940 and 1954. The 1940 meeting was also a 2A State Quarterfinal meeting, one that saw the mighty Wildcats jump out to an 18-0 lead before Longview crawled back to 18-13 in the 4th quarter. Running Back Ed Dusek controlled the day though, and a 4th quarter score ended Longview's hopes of a comeback. Longview won the lone non-district meeting in 1954, 27-21. The two teams would not play against until 1993, when Temple was the defending 5A Division II State Champions. The Lobos jumped out to a 7-0 lead after one quarter at Pennington Field in the 5A D2 Area Round meeting. But Temple turned it on in the second half to walk away with a 28-7 victory. It would be another 18 years before the two schools would meet at Tiger Stadium in Corsicana in the 5A D2 Bi-District meeting, that saw a windy, windy day control the game. Longview led 7-3 after one half of play, but turned it on in the second with 17 points in the third quarter. The Lobos won, 24-3. Longview comes into the game with back to back 10-0 seasons, but the Lobos are also looking to turn a trend that has happened to them twice before. Longview finished 10-0 in both 1975 and 1976, how the 1976 bi-district contest against Sherman end 10-7 in favor of the Bearcats. Longview also finished 10-0 in 2004 and 2005, only to see the 2005 bi-district contest against South Garland go down in Lobo lore for all the wrong reasons as the Colonels knocked off nationally ranked Longview, 14-13. The Wildcats come into Lobo Stadium, their first visit to this stadium that was open in 1976, looking to buck a trend that has occurred since 2003. Temple is riding a 7-game losing streak in the post season on the top level of Texas High School football. The Wildcats last win in 5A/6A was a 23-17 bi-district victory against Round Rock McNeil back in 2003. However, Temple has won plenty of playoff games since then on the second level, after dropping to 5A in 2014. The Wildcats reached the 5A Division I State Final in both 2014 and 2016, where they fell to both Aledo and Highland Park. Temple no doubt will be looking to buck a notion that they also attempted to dodge Longview last season. The Wildcats were set to come to Longview last season with a victory over Copperas Cove in their finale, much like last season. But Temple did not win. Instead it was Copperas Cove walking off with a 22-18 victory to send the Bulldawgs to Lobo Stadium. It's been a full year since the rumors and speculation has started that the Wildcats threw the game to get a home first round football game against the 4th seed Mesquite Horn Jaguars last season, a game that saw the Jags walk out of Wildcat Stadium with a 45-38 victory. Either way, it's two of the top winningest teams in Texas High School Football history meeting on Friday. One team looking to shock the world, the other looking to just continue chugging on towards repeating.

ON THIS DATE IN LOBO HISTORY: November 15th
In 1912, Longview walloped Marshall, 23-3, at Fair Park in Longview.
In 1924, the Loboes participated in their first playoff game and fell at the hands of Highland Park, 20-0, at Ownby Stadium in Dallas.
In 1929, Longview dominated Pittsburg from the start of the contest, 69-0, at Lobo Athletic Field.
In 1946, Longview’s Don Barton hauled in a 75 yard pass reception for a score as the Lobos tied Marshall, 13-13, at Lobo Stadium.
In 1957, Tommy Matthews rushed in from three yards out as time ran out to bring Longview into a tie with the Tyler Lions, 19-19. The Lobos missed the extra point and the game ended in that tied score. David Duncan and Harry Moore also tallied for the Lobos in the game played at Lobo Stadium.
In 1968, Alton Coley scored twice, including the game winning scores with 9:30 remaining in the contest, as Longview knocked off John Tyler at Rose Stadium, 20-13. Mark Hill scored the other touchdown for the Lobos in the victory.
In 1974, Longview jumped out to a 3-0 halftime lead at Lobo Stadium, before Greg Cannon of Lufkin tallied twice in the third quarter and shut out the Lobos in the second half to knock off the Lobos from the list of unbeaten, 12-3. This forced a three way tie between Longview, Lufkin and John Tyler. The Lobos won the toss and advanced.
In 1986, Longview fell behind 12-0 to Waco in Texas Stadium in the first quarter behind a 95 yard kickoff return to start the game and a 32 yard interception return.

You definitely implied that Temple is undeserving to play Longview but in reality next season Temple probably going to have the upper hand. You know how logistically stupid it would be for Northshore

The Landyn Grant-Jalen Hale connection will be talked about for years to come. For now, lets enjoy HK for the next few weeks that we have em. Been a fun ride with this dude, and probably the most

Okay so after skimming this thread, what I understand is.... Spring Hill scored a lot of points in week 1. Because of that, Lufkin fans are mad at Quick (the poster- FrankLucas/TobinFrost… not th

Will get the game preview and the full bracket up in the morning. Just wanted to get the thread up.

Beat Temple.

Trying to figure out this playoff bracket and the locations is confusing as hell.

Tomball Memorial and Vista Ridge tied for the same district standing (2nd place), even though Tomball Memorial technically won a share of the district crown. But then they flipped for home and home cause of the same district standing, and now VR gets a home game.

Longview, Waco Midway, Klein Collins and Austin Vandergrift are all for sure at home.

Still haven't seen confirmation on if Westfield is D1 or D2.

I believe Jesuit and Wylie both get home games. But haven't seen confirmation.

The thing we’ve heard all season from Temple fans is just how poor their defense is. Will be an interesting one for sure. They’re very much like Rockwall it seems.

Longview 28 Temple 17

No....

Longview at home will win this one by four scores or more...

Lobo defense will rule this one in much the same way they've done all season long !

It'll definitely be a test between our great defensive unit and the Temple offense, who's been scoring on everyone outside of Cedar Ridge and Midway. Granted, those are probably the only two good teams they have played.

It'll be a new type of test, cause they definitely have weapons all over the field. But the Temple defense is not good, and they have shown that all season long. I think Kaden is going to have an absolute field day on Friday.

King started hot last night, but that second half was not good through the air. Hopefully that gets turned around. Kearbey dropped another sure TD last night. But he had a nice catch here and there afterwards.

Really need to get Hale more involved in the passing game, but is what it is at this stage of the season.

Posted this on 6A but thought it was worthy of being here.

A lot of Lobo fans have complained about our offense, rightfully so..it's been hit and miss for large parts of the season.

But after last night, they're just the 16th team in program history to hit 400 points in a season (have 431 now). Only 12 seasons in our history have scored more, and we've only played 10 games thus far.

They're not the same offense from last season, but they don't have to be. We're a completely different team with a much better defense, and at the end of the day, a good offense.

On the defense, only 30 Lobo teams in our history have allowed less than this year's group.

Only 21 Lobo teams that have played a full 10 game schedule have allowed less.

2004 - 145 (0 shut outs)
2005 - 127 (2 shut outs)
2006 - 211 (0 shut outs)
2007 - 151 (0 shut outs)

I know Haynes is a good qb, but i have felt that with THIS team ghey needed to utilize his legs more... shoot just run the ball 50-60 times a game (which they are at about 35 or so now). Just have kearbey run jet sweeps so he doesnt have to catch a ball. I understand running a pro style offense will be vital deeper in the playoffs, but with this defense and meredith and jones... you really dont need to pass that much. Outside of the drops i thought this offense has been great (considering who they lost from last year).

They definitely had him running the ball more than usual last night (Haynes that is).

We only threw it 10 times last night.

Whether that was because they didn't want to show much, or we just simply didn't have to..who knows? Probably a mixture of both.

I don't think Temple will be able to stop our running attack, for sure.

I agree. But, this is high school football and anything can happen. I have witnessed it in my 40 years here on Earth.

It's like the more we campaign for Jalen Hale to start, John King goes out of his way to make it a point NOT to play him. I do not understand what his flicked-ed thought process is regarding underclassmen starting if the student athlete is producing at a higher level than the veterans.

Wrapping up Longview's 49-14 win over Mesquite with the Lobo Wrap...

Kaden Meredith is getting closer and closer to surpassing a lot of historical big names.

Shannon Jackson finally getting chances to return kicks is an explosion waiting to happen. 

I've been calling for it all year and I think he should return punts as well.

He is a stud with the ball in his hands. He sacrificed moving from RB to FS in the spring for the better of the team pretty similar to Jephaniah Lister. Like Lister, Jackson would have been mean in the backfield.

Good luck to both teams. Book son plays for Temple, so don’t jump on me 84 lol. I hope the winner of this one wins state. 

Yeah man. I talked with him today. Writing an essay on a Saturday lol my good kid. He knows what they're up against. He was actually born a day after I played against Longview in 2004 at SFA. Time flies. He's done about as well as you can expect a freshman to do at this level. Proud of him no matter what happens next week.

I know some Lobo posters have already heard my take on other forums. Temple is a live dog in this one. They definitely have the players to pull the upset. It may take a little lady luck a long the way but the Temple offense is legit. They have a 6'4-6'5 ish WR commited Texas that Longview will absolutely have to account for. He's going to occupy 2 defenders. They have 3 offensive lineman that are 3 year starters. They got 2 RBs that can absolutely go. The QB isn't the best passer but he is a legitimate 4.4 kid built more like a RB. They're much better then Lufkin's offensive unit. The only games they lost they had 6+ turnovers and nearly won 1 of them. It's not like they're being forced to punt. They take chances on offense and it's high risk high reward and when it rains it pours. Now the bad. The defense starts 2 freshman and 4 sophomore's. Only 1 returning starter in CB Roman Jackson who has 7 picks on the year. Kkd can play. They're talented but just really young. The will make plays that will make you say wow just to turn around and give up something big. Pass defense is actually pretty decent in the secondary but when it comes to stopping the run it gets a little dicey lol and this just in Longview is pretty good at running the ball. I think you will see two teams both equally as talented but Longview a little older and more experience. I understand why some might be completely dismissive of Temple but they're a dangerous team. I think Longview does pull away late but a lot closer then what people think.
