FULL GAME LOG

GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
It's a game that has been circled on both teams' calendars since realignment was announced in February. Though a schedule change pushed the game back later than expected, Longview and Highland Park will meet on the gridiron..finally..for the first time in 34 seasons. But first, the Lobos and Scots remained undefeated in district play this past week as Longview improved to 2-0 in 7-5A D1 play while Highland Park won their district opener. The Lobos, behind a three touchdown day from Kaden Meredith and a two touchdown day from Markevion Haynes, steamrolled Wylie East, 52-17. It was the second consecutive week the Lobos had met a new opponent. Meredith and Haynes continue to have successful seasons running the ball for Longview, who combined have rushed for 1,324 yards on the year and accounted for 24 touchdowns. Highland Park heads east this week fresh off a 21-point win over Sherman in their district opener. After having two of their non-district games cancelled due to COVID-19, the Scots have started 3-0 on the year behind senior quarterback Brayden Schager's impressive start. The 3-star Hawaii commit threw for 255 yards against Sherman, completing 16 of his first 17 passes. The senior quarterback has thrown for 878 yards through the first three games, for five touchdowns with two interceptions. Now the two Texas powerhouses meet in what could potentially be for the district championship. Since falling to Temple in the first contest of the season, have not been challenged, winning all five contests by multiple scores. The Scots remain undefeated, dominating all three of their opponents, with Coppell fighting back from down 20 points multiple times in the contest to make the game look closer. Sherman's 14 points in the 4th quarter when down 41-7 also made their contest look closer than it actually was. Longview and Highland Park don't have a long series over their two illustrious histories. The two schools have met just seven times, the most recent back in 1986 when the Lobos rolled over the Scots, 41-14. Longview rushed for a staggering 496 yards in the Class 5A Regional round meeting held at Texas Stadium. Highland Park fumbled the ball four times in a game the Lobos controlled from the get go. The meeting prior to that came 19 years before, when the Lobos welcomed Highland Park to old Lobo Stadium in a season that saw Longview reach the post season for the first time in 20 years. The Lobos, behind Steve Judy and company, walked away with a 37-22 win over the Scots. The Lobos only other win over Highland Park came in 1939, when the Lobos defeated the Scots 6-0 in Longview. Highland Park has won all three meetings in Dallas, and one more at old Lobo Stadium, including a Class B Bi-district meeting in 1924 at Ownby Stadium 20-0. This will be Highland Park's first ever visit to this version of Lobo Stadium, which was built in 1976. The two schools have had plenty of chances to meet over the years in the post season, four in fact. The last came in 2009, when the Scots fell to Waxahachie in the third round of the post season, 49-35. The Lobos defeated 'Hachie the next week, 50-26. The two squads will meet both on highs in their programs' history. Longview heads into the contest having won 45 of the previous 49 games while Highland Park has won 45 of it's last 48 games, dating back to 2017. On a district level, the Lobos have won 20 consecutive district contests stretching back to a 2017 loss to Mesquite Horn. Highland Park has won 22 consecutive district contests, dating back to a loss at Wylie East in 2016. Longview has won 20 consecutive home games, and hasn't lost a home district game since 2016. While district titles now a days don't mean as much, this contest will likely determine that. Playoff seeding will be huge this season, as the runner up of the district is likely headed right for a second round match up against Lancaster. No doubt, it'll be a great atmosphere on Friday, even with the capacity condensed due to COVID. Two programs with nearly 1,600 wins combined, 8 state championships and 14 state title appearances, for a likely district championship is just the way to spend a Friday night in November in Texas.

I must admit I am very blown away by the amount of information and prefacing LoboFan07 has painstakingly organized in a concise manner for all of the readers of this thread on Smoaky.  I tip my hat to

Right?  Tell you what: if Longview wins by 3tds, I'll run down Loop 281 wearing green and gold body paint. 

Hayden is a beast. Cool as a fan too.

Driving back to Spokane today, and flying home to Texas tomorrow, so will be a little late in getting the Region II overview up this week. Also will get that preview up tomorrow evening.

This game, I think, will really give us an idea of what to expect going forward this season. We’ve dominated every single game since that Temple contest. But the level of competition has no doubt been questionable. They’ve improved, but just how much have they improved.

Hp’s scoreline against Sherman is interesting for sure, but they’ve rolled over everyone so far. They’re a legit state contender once again.

Great test and a really important one seeding wise for the post season.

I hope your DC don't have your corners playing 15 yards off the receiver in this game. Longview needs to play aggressive man to man and limit the turnovers/penalties. This should be a great game.

Exactly what I said about this matchup a few days ago in the district thread.

10-15 yard cushions need to be scrapped from the gameplan against this team. Because HP has maybe the best OL in 5AD1. If we cant get penetration, they'll kill that cushion with short routes, crosses and pump and gos.

Lot of man to man, and constant pressure should be the nucleus of the defensive gameplan this week. Press coverage, 4 yard cushions tops.

Offensively, we cant get cute. Dont come out throwing 50 straight passes like we did against Jesuit. I'm not saying ditch the passing attack all together, but let Meredith/MH set it up with the run. Probably need to ufilize a lot of multiple TE sets too. As good as HP's OL is, their front 7 is just as deadly. So we'll need all the blocking we can get.

Doesnt look like we'll get Shannon or Tyree at PR so, hopefully Davis can field punts with no muffs.

One clear advantage Longview will have in this matchup, outside of homefield, is conditioning. HP missed out on a ton of conditioning because of covid.

Willie Walker converted on that hope with an 89 yard pass reception on the next play. William Oliver would add insurance as the Lions defeated Longview, 19-10.

First and goal from the JT 7 yard line after a drive of running blast and power that JT could not stop. Do they run either of those? No. They call toss which didn't work the other time that night. Defensive end almost got a hand on it the other time, and this time, he crashed down and hit Gaylon as the pitch got to him. Ball goes on the ground and JT gets it. Next play is the Willie Walker td pass of about 90 yards. Lobos go for it on 4th deep in their own territory and dont make it and JT gets a late insurance td.

Only one team goes to the playoffs back then. JT loses 17-14 to Lake Highlands in Bi District and LH wins the State Championship.

It's been 39 years but I still contend that the toss play on first and goal was the WORST play call in Lobo history.

Right up there with not calling a time out against Guyer 2010...

Highland Park in a blowout.  I don't love the pick, but I would rather over-estimate that school than under-estimate them.
