I didn’t say that it isn’t like that. I said being big and tall doesn’t mean D1 either.

Obviously.

The distaste of the WH program by seemingly everyone in the district last season had nothing to do with 2006, purposely blown games, or the former coach.  There is something that every school in

Highland Park has just had a rough 2020. First they get put in a district with Longview and JT. Then they have to drop a game lmao.

Co-sign. I'm on record as wanting Hale to have gotten get more touches and targets last season, but there's absolutely no excuse for him to NOT be our primary target this season.

Kid is the truth.

I think almost every single Longview fan that was not on the coaching staff, believe Hale should've gotten more touches last season.

It was evident in the few that he got that he was the best receiver we had.

If he isn't guy #1 this year, welp...we're not going very far IMO.

Great coach.

Sounds like a fantastic hire. 

Coming from Conroe ISD where he was a safeties coach. 

Also coached at Lamar Consolidated. 

I think he was in Jacksonville back in the day too. 

He’s an East Texas guy.... so that’s appealing.  Tatum graduate. Longview native

Welcome to Marshall, Coach!

Can’t remember if I shared this on another thread or not.  But a cool pic of Rose Stadium from 1972. JT Vs Marshall.

I see where Bobby Taylor Jr. is a 5 star Safety recruit for the Katy Tigers for 2022.  One Lobo that didn't come back home.  Just like Reggie McNeal's son, is a senior playing at Spring DeKaney. Not back in Lufkin.  Jorvorskie Lane has a son in the LMS who will be a freshman, he will most likely stick with baseball. Does not have the size of his father.

Is McNeal’s boy any good ?

I would never presume to tell another father what's best for his child's future...   BUT...

Were Bobby Jr. to find his way into the Lobo Nation, it would be a *national* story, and something that would draw a LOT of recruiting attention.

Just sayin.     ;)

Well, you can't get much better than Katy for national exposure.  Bobby Jr. is staying there,  no gain at all to switch to Longview, except that his Dad played there.  His Father is in the real estate business in the Houston area with the KALU Group.  He can make big $$$ there.

Don't disagree with anything you said...

 

...just that IF he were to come to Longview, it would be a national story.

He already has his offers so he could go anywhere as he pleases. Would have good chances at winning titles at either school the next few years....and you can make money in real estate living anywhere. Bobby Sr is in Longview more often than you think and is very close to the staff. If you look back, Bobby Sr was the first to congratulate and hug Coach King when LV won it all. Plenty of games I've seen him on the sidelines, specifically in the playoffs.

I knew some things that was in the works right before everything shutdown that I wont dive into here. Dont know if it'll happen now considering everything but, very much possible still. Like I said, long summer ahead of us.

Would be a shame to leave his friends in Katy just to follow in his daddy's HS footsteps.  He is a 5 Star because he is in Katy, not Longview.  Just saying.  You guys are good at pulling the strings to get ex-Lobo players to brings their kids back to Longview from wherever they may be living when HS rolls around..   Wish Lufkin would work harder at doing that, just does not happen often.  We could use the help.

Think he would've been highly sought after regardless of where he went, considering who his pops is. He was getting offers before he got to Katy, when he was at Houston Heights.

You can definitely get plenty exposure in LV. Heck, the Lobos have a 9th grader already getting SEC offers.

good news.  Do you know if the indoor practice facilities are complete?

I doubt it. I was kinda surprised that they are redoing the turf. The 1st turf we had lasted 11 years. So I was thinking the same thing will happen with this turf. I didn't know the turf we got was only good for 8 years. I wonder if they will change the design up a little.

Work is starting on the covered facility. 

Will be located behind Lady Mav Softball field.

First if it’s kind in Texas.  Third in the nation. 

Pretty exciting stuff happening.

That 2024 QB they got out of TISD was huge though.

For the future anyway.
