FULL GAME LOG

GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
An off season like no other. What turned into an early than expected off season for the Longview Lobos, after an upset loss to Dallas Jesuit in last year’s area round playoff game, soon became an extended off season as COVID 19 reared it’s ugly head pushing the 2020 season back a full month. However, the season is finally upon us and the Lobos are set to take the field against a familiar foe. Longview already had many questions to answer heading into the 2020 season, with the loss of 3-year starting quarterback Haynes King. Taking over the helm will be the biggest question the Lobos have to answer when they take on the Temple Wildcats inside AT&T Stadium. While the Lobos saw their school record 27-game winning streak come to a streaking halt in their last game, the Wildcats saw these same green wolves in their last game with Longview and Temple meeting in the bi-district round last November. Longview knocked off Temple at Lobo Stadium, 41-10. The Lobos jumped out to a 34-10 halftime lead, before Kaden Meredith put the game out of reach in the third quarter to finish of the scoring. With the new season, the Lobos look forward to a new class with the drop to Class 5A Division I in February’s UIL realignment. Longview drops to Class 5A for the first time since 2015. The Lobos will also be returning to AT&T Stadium for the first time since their 2018 Class 6A Division II State Championship contest against Beaumont West Brook, where Longview ended their 81-year state title drought with a 35-34 victory. It will be Temple’s first visit back to AT&T since 2016, when the Wildcats fell to Highland Park in the Class 5A Division I State Championship game. Longview and Temple will meet for the 7th time, with the Lobos having won four of the six previous contests. The two schools first met in 1937, when Longview hosted the Wildcats in the 1A State Quarterfinals. The Lobos won 19-12, behind a 3-yard run by Frank Lebus in the 4th quarter. The Wildcats would return the favor in the 1940 2A State Quarterfinals with a 24-13 victory at Woodson Field. After a Lobo non-district victory in 1954, the two schools would not meet again until the 1993 5A Division II Area round, where the defending 5A Division II State Champion Wildcats would fight off a scrappy Longview squad with two fourth quarter touchdowns to run away with a 28-7 victory over the Lobos at Pennington Field in Bedford. The Lobos and Wildcats would next meet in 2011, when the two schools met in the 5A Division II Bi-District round. Despite a very windy day at Tiger Stadium in Corsicana, Longview would hold onto a 24-3 victory. Longview’s 4th win came in last season’s bi-district meet up. Longview head coach John King will enter his 17th season as head coach, holding a 179-37 record in his previous 16 seasons. King’s teams are 9-7 in the opening week of the season, though Longview has won their last three season opening games in a row. The Lobos are 70-33-7 all-time in season opening contests.

Well, I don't have an answer for you either. However, Lufkin's style of offensive line play does not make it conducive for big running numbers, except in leap years. Like last year, when they played 1

Nah... I broke down his game in the team thread over on the 6A board but its absolutely scary to think that Lobo fans could have someone with similar SKILLSET as HK, but with Pete Roberson frame

You should have added a 5th option in the poll for a Rona victory.

Lots to update still, like the Temple schedule (just switched the dates, no idea if they're going to have to change things or what games are on Thursday now) and the 8-5A schedule is a mess. But least we have confirmation (as of now) that this game is still scheduled to take place.

So keeping hope alive by starting the thread.

Updated Temple's schedule.

https://wildcatstrong.com/2020/07/30/updated-2020-wildcat-football-schedule/

They've completely redone their district schedule, plus added Arlington Martin instead of Hutto.

They still have AT&T next to our game, for now.

Wolves in a close one

This game is interesting to me.  A more experienced team from Temple with a new QB wanting revenge and a Longview squad reloading with a new and young QB.   If Longview doesn't have to expect 2 much from the young QB in this first game, we should be in a good position.  The thing that I worry about the most will be the turnovers.  If the Temple defense can dial in and we have two many mistakes, it won't go our way.  I honestly think this game will be decided by our Oline versus their front 7.

Lean on Kaden, control the ball/clock.

This is a matchup I wanted for years.

We met last November... lol

No doubt they'll be better this time around though. If I remember correctly, we were set to have Temple on our schedule last realignment, until they were put in that crazy large district of theirs.

Another solid Longview front 7 + a solid Longview backfield will be the difference in this one. Not just Meredith either. Markevion Haynes is a load. Folks don't know it yet because he has missed time the past two years with injuries but we can't forget he is one of several guys in this senior group who are 3 year varsity players.

On a side note, as a football fan, you have to be excited for the young talent in this game. The amount of 2022 (JR) and 2023 (sophomore) talent that'll be on the field will be exciting to watch.

Both teams will be cracking in sophomore QBs with promising futures: Temple's Mikal Harrison-Pilot (6'2 175) vs Longview's Landyn Grant (6'3 191). MHP actually started in Temple's secondary last season as a freshman. Meanwhile, QBHitList projects Grant to be one of the top 2023 QB's in TX. Other key underclassmen in this one:

Longview sophomore WR Jalen Hale (6'3 180) - rated the #1 2023 WR in TX, several early P5 offers

Temple sophomore LB Taurean York (5'11 205) - one of the best sophomore LBs in TX, started all 11 games for Temple and led the team in tackles...as a freshman.

Temple JR LT Colby Rice - Played a ton at LT for Temple as a sophomore last season

Longview JR LB Devean Isaac (5'11 210) - played in rotation last year for Longview as a sophomore....promising future

Temple JR RB Samari Howard (5'8 170) - earned district offensive newcomer of the year as a sophomore after rushing for 971 yards...on FBS radars

Longview sophomore DE/OLB JJ Rougley (6'3 213) - may start for Longview this fall as a sophomore...future FBS player

Temple JR LB/DE Eric Shorter (5'9 210) - 2nd team all district selection as a sophomore

Longview JR DE Jesse Fairchild (6'2 250)

Just to name a few...
