FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: The meeting of two historic Texas High School Football program finally comes to pass Saturday afternoon in Dallas, Texas as the Longview Lobos and the Aledo Bearcats face off in the Class 5A Division I State Semi-Finals. Longview, winners of 770 contests as they head into their 1,178th game as a program, face off against the Bearcats, winners of a state record 10-state championships, in ther first ever meeting between the two, and in only the second time the two could have potentially faced off. Longview and Aledo had a chance to face off in 2015, but Mansfield Lake Ridge defeated Longview, 56-53, that season a week before knocking off Aledo, 42-21. For the Lobos, a week after knocking off the state's #2 ranked team, it will be another big test as Aledo comes in ranked 3rd in the state and having won 12 in a row after opening the 2022 season with two straight losses. Longview, winners of 14 in a row, come in following a gutsy 37-21 win over Mansfield Timberview. The Lobos and Wolves battled to a 14-14 tie at halftime, before outscoring Timberview 23-7 in the second half. Timberview's 60-yard run in the third quarter was the first time Longview's defense had allowed points in the third quarter since the second week of the season against Marshall. Taylor Tatum's incredible season continued as he inches closer to 2,000 yards on the year. The junior rushed for 186 yards against the Wolves, pulling him to within 160 yards of that elusive mark. Only two Lobos have ever reached the 2,000 yards rushed in a single season mark. Tatum tallied five touchdowns, including four rushing. The four rushing pushed him to 33 rushing touchdowns on the season, the first ever Lobo to reach 30 rushing touchdowns in a single season. His 36 total touchdowns continues to set school records. He sits just 12 touchdowns away from tying the total career touchdown mark. The Lobos move into the State Semi-Finals for the first time since that 2018 state championship season, and for the 10th time in program history. This will be the 6th time head coach John King has headed to the 5th round. King is 3-2 in the previous five trips, winning in 2008, 2009 and 2018. His 2010 and 2017 losses came by a combined three points. Longview will be county on lady luck once again at Kincaide Stadium, as the Lobos return to their home away from home in the Metroplex. Saturday afternoon's contest will be the 13th time in their history, riding a 12-1 record at the venue. The Lobos defeated Frisco Lone Star earlier this playoff run in their first trip back to Kincaide in four seasons. The Lobos will be playing their second State Semi-Final contest at Kincaide as well. The Lobos defeated Denton Guyer, 49-28, back in 2009 at Kincaide in a game that saw Longview rush for 492 yards. Aledo heads to the State Semi-Final for the 9th time in the last 10 years. Last season's loss to South Oak Cliff in the Regional Semi-Finals ended a run of 8 consecutive seasons the Bearcats had reached at least the 5th round of the post season. This will be their first ever trip to Kincaide Stadium. For the Bearcats, quarterback Hauss Hejny is their everything. Hejny has thrown for 17 touchdowns and rushed for another 13 this season.

The two schools have never played on November 25th. LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES: First meeting. FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: One game at a time. The Longview Lobos have opened the 2022 5A Division I State playoffs with two resounding victories, that has seen junior Taylor Tatum take completely over the games. Tatum, through two playoffs games, has eight touchdowns and over 450 yards of offense, the most by any Lobo in program history through two playoff games. The 38-17 win, Longview's 7th consecutive 20+ point win, over Frisco Lone Star moves the Lobos into a familiar territory of the Regional Semi-Finals. For the first time in three seasons, it will not be Denton Ryan awaiting the Lobos in the Regional Semis. This will be Longview's 14th trip to the Regional Semis in John King's 19 seasons as Lobo head coach. It also is a round that has seen the most Lobo losses in a single round. The Lobos are 7-6 under John King in the previous 13 trips to this round of the playoffs. While the Lobos only have to look back to 2018 for their last Regional Semi-Final victory, Port Arthur Memorial enters tonight's contest looking for their first victory this deep into the playoffs since 2011 when the Titans defeated Spring Branch Memorial, 24-14. The Titans enter the third round of the playoffs for just the sixth time in program history, holding a 1-4 record in those games. Their two playoff wins this season are more than the Titans have had combined in the last five seasons. Port Arthur Memorial last entered this round of the playoffs back in 2017 when the Titans were defeated by Temple, 33-29. This will be Longview's 11th all-time game against Port Arthur ISD but the first since a 1947 2-0 victory against Port Arthur Thomas Jefferson. The Lobos and Yellowjackets faced off ten times between 1937 and 1947 with Port Arthur Thomas Jefferson taking a 5-3-2 series lead in those ten games. Longview and Port Arthur Memorial will each be playing their second game at Lufkin's Abe Martin Stadium this season. Longview previously defeated Lufkin, 56-7, down at Abe Martin back in September while the Titans escaped with a 52-50 four overtime victory last week against the Wakeland Wolverines. This will be Longview's 28th overall game at Abe Martin, dating back to its opening 1973. Longview will be looking to make history to win its fourth contest in a row at Abe Martin. The Lobos have won 3 in a row at Lufkin three times in its history, and is currently riding that three game winning streak dating back to 2019. The Lobos will be looking to even it's record at Abe Martin as well, as they currently hold a 13-14 record all-time there. While this will be the first ever time to play a playoff game at Abe, this will be the third time Longview has faced off in a playoff game in Lufkin. Longview defeated Lufkin, 19-0, in 1937 before falling to Lufkin, 33-0, in 1942.

In 1915, Marshall knocked off Longview, 24-0, at Tee Pee Park. In 1926, Gilmer defeated Longview, 7-0, in Fair Park in Longview. In 1937, Marvin Jordan led the way with three touchdowns as seven different Lobos scored in a 57-12 victory over Gladewater at Bear Stadium to cap a 10-0 regular season. In 1943, Longview held Gladewater to 67 total yards as 7 turnovers by the Lobos weren’t enough to turn away a 42-7 victory over the Bears at Bear Stadium. The Lobo defense produced 10 turnovers themselves in the win. In 1948, Gladewater ended a 9-game Lobo winning streak thanks to Bobby Honeycutt’s three touchdowns in a 33-7 beatdown of Longview at Lobo Stadium. Six Lobo turnovers doomed Longview on the night. In 1954, Dub Thomas tallied three touchdowns to help lift the Lobos over Marshall, 27-18, on Thanksgiving Day at Lobo Stadium. In 1989, Ernest Hunter rushed for 147 yards and two touchdowns but the passing performance of Huntsville quarterback Steve Clements overcame the Lobos in a 24-14 victory by the Hornets at Texas Stadium. Clements passed for 266 yards and three touchdowns. In 2006, a 96 yard kickoff return, a 42-yard field goal followed by a blocked field goal in the dying seconds were enough to lift Garland to a 24-21 win over Longview at Texas Stadium. The Lobos managed 377 yards on the night and held the Owls to just 117 but two short fields in the third quarter were enough to give the win to Garland. In 2017, beyond 462 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns, Longview ran passed Dallas Jesuit, 75-43, at Kincaide Stadium in Dallas. Jaquan Edwards had four touchdowns while Keilyn Williams rushed for three in a game that saw the Lobos score 11 touchdowns on just 36 snaps.

The Longview Lobos, after seeing Crosby take a 15-7 lead in the first half of the first quarter, rolled their way to 42 unanswered points in a route of the Cougars at Lobo Stadium. The win improved Longview to 11-0 on the season with a large portion of that thanks to five touchdowns by junior Taylor Tatum. Another large part of the victory came in the hand of the Lobo defense, who held the Cougars to under 30 yards rushing. Longview's defense accounted for 13 sacks, and 19 tackles for loss in the game. Both were season highs. Longview's defense continues to dominate in the second half, registering their 9th consecutive game without allowing a second half point. Marshall is the only team this season to score against Longview's defense in the second half, a third quarter touchdown and following two point conversion. Longview has allowed a fourth quarter touchdown, but that came in a victory over North Mesquite thanks in part to a fumbled returned for a score. The Lobos now turn west as they are set to take on a Frisco ISD school for the first time in their football history. Perennial power Frisco Lone Star stands in Longview's way in round two as the Rangers are coming off a dominating 55-15 victory over Richland. The Rangers used a suffocating defense against the Royals to run out to a 41-7 halftime lead in the victory. The Rangers rushed for 362 yards on the night as they won their 7th contest in a row. Lone Star's last loss came against Frisco Wakeland, 38-10, back in late September. This will be the second consecutive DCTF Pre-Season Top 10 team Longview will face, after facing off against Crosby last week who came in at No. 6 in the state. Frisco Lone Star started the season No. 5 in the state before falling to Frisco Reedy in week three, 13-7. In both of their losses, the Rangers lost the turnover battle. Against Reedy, the Rangers committed 3 turnovers while against Wakeland, they committed 6. For the Lobos, they head back to a stadium that has been labeled as Lobo Stadium West. Friday's contest will be Longview's 12th all-time playoff game at Kincaide Stadium, one that saw Longview win 11 in a row there before the Lobos' last visit in 2019. The Lobos are 5-1 all-time in Area round games there, but also 11-1 all-time with one regular season game at Kincaide. Overall, this will be Longview's 29th all-time Area round match up. The Lobos are 19-9 in the previous 28 Area round contests, but also 12-3 under head coach John King in Area round games. The Lobos have defeated state-ranked Lancaster in the last two second round match ups. The Lobos will be looking to improve to 12-0 on the season for just the 6th time in program history. On top of program history, Longview's Taylor Tatum will be three touchdowns away from becoming the all-time touchdown leader in a season in program history. Tatum's five touchdowns against Crosby tied a school record for rushing scores in a game, and tied a record for playoff touchdowns in a game. For Lone Star, as program, they have found a lot of early playoff success since their opening in 2010. The Rangers are 6-2 in Area Round games since opening, though did suffer a 55-21 loss to College Station last season in the Area round. Win the Rangers do lose playoff games, they usually lose them by multiple scores. Only the 2017 loss to Mansfield Legacy in the State Quarterfinal was decide by less than two scores in their history. As coach King enters his 64th playoff game as Lobo head coach, Friday's game will once again be about concentrating on his own team. The Lobos have had just one game this season that was decided by a single score, all the way back in week five against Lancaster.

Hunter’s 328 yards rushing in the playoffs remains a Lobo school record for yards rushed in the post season. In 2006, Nine different Lobos tallied scores as the Lobos held Dallas Bryan Adams to -37 rushing yards and 13 total yards on the day in a 68-0 Lobo victory at E.H. Handy Stadium in Mesquite. The score remains the most lopsided playoff victory in program history.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES: First meeting. FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: Playoff time in Texas. It's the best time of year, and for the Longview Lobos who are fresh off registering their 12th perfect regular season in program history, they have sights on a long playoff run. For them to get there, the first of a six game gauntlet comes in the form of the Crosby Cougars. In a billing that was pegged for the Regional Semi Finals to start the season, Crosby has fell short of the expectations that were placed on them following their move from 5A Division I. Starting the season ranked 6th in the state of Texas, the Cougars quickly fell in their first game of the season against CE King by a heavy 63-7 scoreline. Crosby's season overall didn't start much better, as the Cougars started 3-4 on the year before turning it around in a playoff deciding win over New Caney Porter, 26-21. The Cougars are two years removed from a 5A Division 2 State Finalist berth after last season falling in the State Semi-Finals. The Cougars have won their last three bi-district games, last losing 72-69 to Port Neches-Groves in 2017. This will be the first ever meeting between the two programs. For Longview, following a 70-0 victory to win their 19th consecutive senior night contest, the Lobos head into the playoffs after going wire to wire in the regular season ranked as the No. 1 team by Dave Campbell's Texas Football for the first time in program history. The Lobos won their 13th consecutive home game with their win over the Wranglers, and improved to 88-6 at home under John King. Longview is 34-1 in their last 35 games at home. In their playoff appearance at home, the Lobos are hosting a home playoff game for the 6th consecutive season. It will be the 7th contest for Longview to host at (new) Lobo Stadium. The first playoff game back in 1984 was their only loss, a 24-14 defeat to Bryan. That was the last time the game was within two scores, as Longview as dominated their last seven home playoff games. Overall, this will be the 14th playoff game Longview as a program has hosted. The Lobos are 9-3-1 overall. For bi-district games, the Lobos enter the playoffs for the 48th time in program history and 19th time under John King. Longview has made the post season now 22 seasons in a row. Under John King, Longview is 16-2 in bi-district games with the Lobos only losing in 2005, 14-13 to South Garland, and 2016, 34-33 to Beaumont West Brook. Friday's contest will be the 120th playoff contest in program history with 68 of those comings under John King. The Lobos hold a 45-17 record under King in post season games. As a program before John King arrived, Longview had just 29 playoff wins. Longview's Taylor Tatum enters the post season seven touchdowns away from tying the school record for touchdowns in a season. He's just the 11th Lobo to score 21 or more touchdowns in a season. While quarterback Jordan Allen won't break the single season passing record, he can become the 6th Lobo quarterback to hit 20 or more passing touchdowns in a single season with two more. Jalen Hale's two touchdown day against West Mesquite pushed him to 11 receiving scores for the season, lifting him to the 5th time for a Lobo player to hit 11 or more scores in a single season. He's the first ever receiver in Longview history to have multiple seasons of 10 or more receiving scores.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES: 09.23.2021 - Longview 56, West Mesquite 28 - Mesquite Memorial Stadium 10.23.2020 - Longview 49, West Mesquite 24 - Lobo Stadium FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: One more to go. That will be the motto for the Longview Lobos this week, as they head into the regular season finale against the West Mesquite Wranglers. A district championship clinch, a home playoff clinched, the Lobos need just one more victory to clinch the 12th perfect regular season in program history. Last week, the Lobos saw their game moved up a day to avoid potential rain and thunderstorms. Despite Tyler’s game plan of controlling the ball, and limiting the Lobos to just three possessions in the first half, Longview dominated their western rivals by a 42-3 scoreline. The win was Longview’s 6th in a row over the Lions, as the defense continued a dominant stretch of play in the second half. The Lobo defense has allowed just eight points the entire season in the second half, and exactly zero points in the fourth quarter of play. The offense gave up a fumble for a touchdown against North Mesquite to nearly double the output in the second half. For Longview’s defense, they have surrendered just 77 total points this season while scoring over 400. Longview’s Taylor Tatum hit the 1,000 mark with his 193 yard day against the Lions. His three touchdown day pushed him to 21 touchdowns on the season, good for 9th best in Lobo history in a single season, a feat even more impressive recognizing that Tatum did not play against North Mesquite at all. The Lobos return home to finish of the regular season to take on the Wranglers of West Mesquite in the third meet gin between the two programs. The Lobos and Wranglers first met in 2020, as the Lobos rolled over West 49-24 at Lobo Stadium. Last season’s meeting at Mesquite Memorial required a three touchdown day from Jalen Hale for the Lobos escape with the victory. Crazy to say a game that ended 56-28 is escaping, but the Lobos saw themselves led just 28-21 heading into the fourth quarter. Senior night for Longview has been a house of horrors for opponents. The Lobos are a perfect 18-0 all-time under head coach John King on senior night. The Lobos have not had a competitive game on senior night since 2011, when Longview defeated No. 3 ranked DeSoto, 23-21, on national television to clinch the district crown. John King, winners of 104 of 113 district contests in his career. The district title clinched is the 15th of his career, and 41st in Longview history. A 10-0 record would be the 5th time in his career to reach that mark. While Longview and West Mesquite don’t have a lot of history against one another, the Lobos and Mesquite ISD are very familiar. This will be the 48th meeting between the Lobos and Mesquite ISD all-time, with Longview holding a 40-7 in the previous 47 meetings. North Mesquite is the only Mesquite ISD program to have won at Lobo Stadium, and that was back in 1988.

In 1949, Sonny Jones rushed for two scores while Ronnie Lemmons hauled in a 54-yard scoring reception as the Lobos knocked off Tyler, 18-6, at Lobo Stadium. In 1955, Lufkin’s Jerry Fuller and Longview’s Curtis Lemmonds each marked two scoring receptions but it was Lufkin who walked out of Panther Stadium with the 35-32 victory over the Lobos. Longview led 14-0 after the first quarter before Lufkin took the lead at 21-14 heading into the fourth.

In 1983, in the lone district championship match up in the history of the two teams, the Lobos rallied on Charles Smith’s hands to bring home a 27-16 victory over cross town rival Pine Tree in an overflowed Pirate Stadium. Steve Blaschke added two field goals as Joe Johnson opened the scoring. In 1988, in a situation that caused a non-district game to be the last game of the year, Longview’s Earnest Hunter rushed for three scoring touchdowns before Reggie Adams rushed in from 10-yards out with 33 seconds left to lift the Lobos to a 34-29 victory over Mesquite at Lobo Stadium.

In 1995, Isaiah Stoker rushed in from a yard out to tie the game at 7-7 going into halftime before John Tyler awoke in the second half to lift the Lions to a 28-7 win over the Lobos at Rose Stadium. Four Lobo fumbles ended any hope of an upset on a Saturday afternoon in Tyler. In 2005, in a game billed as the return of John Tyler, the Lobos quickly put to rest the talk that had happened all week from the Lions running out to a 28-0 halftime lead. David Robinson and Carlin Freeman each tallied twice for the Lobos in a 42-13 victory over Cujo at Lobo Stadium.

Kincaide Stadium FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: A brewing rivalry takes place at Longview's Lobo Stadium in week five of the Texas High School Football season. The Longview Lobos and Lancaster Tigers face off in the likely 7-5A Division 1 district championship showdown tonight after meeting the last two seasons in post season action. To recap the season thus far, both teams have experienced a ton of success. The Lobos, ranked No. 1 in the state in Class 5A Division 1, roll back home for the first time in three weeks fresh off two dominating victories. Longview, two weeks ago, defeated Tyler Legacy at Rose Stadium, 69-0, the most points the Lobos have ever scored in Tyler, only to one up by steamrolling long time rival Lufkin, 56-7, at Abe Martin Stadium. The largest victory for a Longview team ever over their rivals to the south inside the city of Lufkin. With the district opening win last week, the Lobos improved to 4-0. Lancaster, on the other hand, improved to 3-1 by dismantling McKinney North 74-7. The Tigers have a dominating win over defending 5A Division II state champion, South Oak Cliff, to their resume. The only loss on the season was to Denton Guyer. The two teams will meet for the fourth time in their history, but the first ever in regular season with both being put into the same district for the first time. Longview ran past the Tigers in the 2008 first meeting, on their way to a State Finalist berth. In 2020, Lancaster came into Mesquite's Memorial Stadium riding high with the state's No. 2 ranking. The Lobos quickly revered all fortune for the Tigers that season, dominating Lancaster 56-20. Last season, the two teams battled to their closest battle yet. The Lobos lead 17-14 heading into the fourth quarter before Longview tallied 17 unanswered in the fourth for a 34-14 victory. Longview returns to Lobo Stadium for their district home opener, looking to keep a streak alive under John King. King is a perfect 18-0 in district home openers as head coach of the Lobos. Longview is also 50-2 all-time under John King in district home games. In district games themselves, John King sits at 99-9. After having won 14 district titles in his first 16 seasons, the last two seasons have seen the Lobos fail to win a district crown. That's the longest since a 7-season stretch from 1997 to 2003. Lancaster head coach Leon Paul, in his second season as head coach of the Tiges, has never lost a district ball game as head coach of the Tigers. Lancaster's last district loss came back in 2019 against Highland Park, a 42-35 overtime loss.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES: 10.21.2021 - McKinney North 37, Longview 35 - McKinney ISD Stadium 11.27.2020 - Longview 55, McKinney North 10 - Lobo Stadium FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: Revenge. Head coach John King won’t want many people thinking that’s what is on the mind of his Lobos and the fans of his number one ranked team, but it will be hard to think of anything else. Revenge will be the headline as the Lobos welcome in McKinney North’s Bulldogs in the third meeting between the two programs. Last season, Longview visited McKinney ISD Stadium on a cold, windy Thursday night only to suffer a 37-35 defeat that saw the Lobos turn the ball over five different times on top of recording 13 penalties for over 120 yards. It was a nightmare for the Lobos in every which way, one that saw McKinney North’s Elijah Alexander completely steal the show offensively for the Bulldogs as he tallied up four touchdowns on the night. The second loss in district play last season marked just the second time under head coach John King that Longview had suffered two district losses within the same season. The two teams enter Longview’s Lobo Stadium in a cross road. For Longview, the Lobos are looking to clinch a playoff berth AND at least a top two seed within the district meaning a home playoff game regardless of what happens the rest of the day. The Lobos are the district’s lone remaining unbeaten team within the district. McKinney North, however, comes in at 3-1 in district play. For the Bulldogs, they will be coming in thinking a win would get them back into the district title race. McKinney North’s lone loss came to Lancaster, while Lancaster lost to Longview previously. A loss for the Bulldogs see the Lobos and Tigers pulling away while the Bulldogs would drop into battling for the third and fourth spots in district play. Last week, the Lobos sat their star backs in Taylor Tatum and Alijah Johnson but got a massive effort out of sophomore sensation Kelvin Washington, who registered four touchdowns on the night, in a 42-19 victory over the North Mesquite Stallions. The win was Longview’s eighth in a row over North Mesquite. The Lobos saw their mark of surrendering just eight points in the second half come to an end as a fumble late in the fourth quarter ended the shutout streak that had lasted since the third quarter of the second game of the season. The defense did not allow North Mesquite to pass midfield the entire half, once again. McKinney North got a highly emotional victory over Lufkin in three overtimes that saw the Bulldogs overcome a 17 point deficit in the second half before the two teams traded scores back and forth until being forced to decide a likely playoff spot, at least for Lufkin, on trading two point conversion attempts. McKinney North returns to Lobo Stadium for the second time in three years, following their 2020 Black Friday visit. The Bulldogs actually grabbed the lead early in that first meeting between the two programs, before the Lobos rolled up 340 yards rushing in a 55-10 beatdown of McKinney North. Friday’s contest will only be the 6th meeting between Longview and a McKinney ISD school, but it will be the second of the season. Longview first met McKinney High back in 1937, knocking off the Lions 32-7. The Lobos met McKinney Boyd in a 2013 playoff contest that saw the Lobos walk away with a 27-10 victory before also opening the 2022 season with a 36-10 victory over Boyd. The Lobos, of course, have been in a district with North the last three years. Longview is scheduled to meet McKinney High to open the 2023 season, as well as visit the Bulldogs in October 2023. Longview returns to Lobo Stadium for their 250th appearance inside the stadium they’ve called home since 1976. The Lobos are currently riding an 11-game winning streak at home, having won 205 of the previous 249 games they’ve played there. Highly documented, the Lobos have rarely lost at home under head coach John King, who just picked up his 204th victory as Lobo head coach. Longview sits at 86-6 under King at Lobo Stadium, but even more impressively, the Lobos are 56-2 in district ball games at home against King.

Longview was able to get to the three yard line of Texas High in the second quarter, before losing the ball on downs.

The motto to the rest of the regular season will sing true, as the Lobos inch ever so closer to a district championship, a first since 2019's 11-6A district title. Last week, the Lobos returned to the gridiron from the bye week to blast 5A Division One new comer Forney, 46-7, in the first meeting between the two squads. The Lobos controlled the very get go, racing out to a 22-0 lead before Forney had a chance to know what hit them. The win improved Longview to 6-0 on the season, but most importantly 3-0 in district. With that, the Lobos see four teams remaining in front of them in their quest to return to the mark of district champions. This week, the North Mesquite Stallions are back on the schedule after a two year hiatus. The Stallions dropped down from Class 6A in last February's realignment. However, the Stallions have found just as little success in 5A D1 as they did in Class 6A. North Mesquite comes in off a 28-14 loss down at Lufkin, dropping to 1-2 in district play. North Mesquite's lone win in district play was over crosstown rival West Mesquite, who currently sits at 0-3 in district play. The two teams last met in 2019, when the Lobos won their 24th consecutive game in knocking off the Stallions 55-0. The win also marked Longview's 7th in a row over North Mesquite, dating back to 2010. Since the Lobos lost to North Mesquite back in 2010, Longview has outscored the Stallions 346-83 in those seven meetings. The last two meetings have been the largest margins of victory for Longview in the series, outscoring the Stallions 118-3 in those two meetings alone. Overall, Longview has 12 wins over the Stallions to just three losses. The two teams first met back in 1971, when the Stallions visited Longview and walked away with a 36-23 victory thanks to a 17-point outburst in the fourth quarter. In the next meeting, delayed until 1988, the Stallions knocked off the Lobos at Lobo Stadium again in a 28-14 victory. Those two wins are the only time a Mesquite ISD squad has ever had a series lead over the Lobos. Since then, the Lobos have rolled over the Stallions, all in district play, by a 12-1 series margin. North Mesquite's lone district win over the Lobos was definitely a big win, back in 2010. Longview took a 14-3 lead into the 4th quarter at Mesquite Memorial Stadium only for Joe Bergeron and the Stallions to overcome Longview and defeat the Lobos 24-14. The win snapped a 36-game district winning streak for the Lobos. The loss also remains the only loss since John King over that saw the Lobos give up a multiple score lead in the fourth quarter. The Stallions almost did the same four years prior in 2006, when Longview took a 27-14 lead into the fourth quarter at Mesquite Memorial only for North Mesquite to storm back and take a 28-27 lead on the Lobos late. Longview's D'Marcus Miles denied that comeback, however, as the Lobos escaped with a 35-28 win. The two teams are meeting at Mesquite Memorial Stadium for the 7th time, with Longview holding a 5-1 record against the Stallions at their home venue. Overall, this will be Longview's 17th trip to Mesquite Memorial Stadium, holding an 11-5 advantage in the previous 16 games. Of course, Longview fans know Mesquite Memorial quite well after recent years in seeing their season end at the hands of Denton Ryan in both 2020 and 2021 at Memorial. That said, outside of opponent not ranked No. 1 in the state and not named Denton Ryan, Longview has won their last 5 contests there. As Longview enters tonight's contest, they can not clinch a playoff berth this week though tiebreakers would be the only way to eliminate the Lobos in that case.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES: First Meeting. FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: The Longview Lobos knew they would be tested this season. It was just a matter by whom, and when. It came in the form of week five’s opponent, the Lancaster Tigers. Meeting for the third season in a row, but first in the regular season, the two teams have formed a healthy rivalry with the Lobos eliminating the Tigers in the playoffs the last two years. With a district title looming, the two schools didn’t disappoint in the battle. The Tigers controlled the first half, jumping out to a 13-7 lead and picking off Lobo senior quarterback twice, the first two interceptions Allen had thrown this season. In the second half, the Lobos showed why Lobo Stadium is such a hard place to come and win, with the Lobo defense shutting out Lancaster the rest of the way while Taylor Tatum added two touchdowns to lift Longview to a 21-13 victory. The win keeps Longview undefeated on the season at 5-0, but most importantly sitting 2-0 in district play. The win lifted John King to his 100th district victory as head coach of the Lobos in his 109th district contest. With a bye week behind us, the Forney Jackrabbits now stand in Longview’s way of fully claiming the district crown as the Jackrabbits sit as the only other district squad with an unblemished district record. Forney dominated West Mesquite in their district opener, 43-14, before dominating Lufkin, 41-21, at home. This is the second straight season for Forney to start district at 2-0, after having gone 1-13 in district contests in their previous two years. Forney’s 4-1 mark is its best start since starting 5-0 in 2015. Longview welcomes in Forney for the first time in its history to Lobo Stadium. After the win over Lancaster, the Lobos improved to 204-38-6 all-time at Lobo Stadium, dating back to it’s opening in 1976. The win over the Tigers was the 10th straight at home, and the 30th win out of the last 31 games there. Overall, the Lobos are 85-6 under John King at home. The Lobos also will be looking to clinch a winning record for the 22nd consecutive season, dating back to 2000. Overall, a win would give the Lobos their 81st winning season in 113 seasons of Lobo football.

The true rivalry week according to many Longview and Lufkin supporters kickoffs off district play this season as the 85th edition of the Lobos and Panthers set to resume the district side of the rivalry for the first time since 2003 as the two kickoff at Lufkin's Abe Martin Stadium. Longview, ranked No. 1 in the state according to Dave Campbell's Texas Football, heads to Abe Martin fresh off their second largest victory under head coach John King as the Lobos rolled over Tyler Legacy, 69-0, last Friday night. The win improved the Lobos to 3-0 on the season, and helped John King record the 200th victory of his career. King's 200th victory moved him into the top 100 all-time in victories by a head coach. Nine different Lobos tallied touchdown for Longview on Friday night, the most in a single game in school history. In the win, Longview also recorded their 18th consecutive victory over the Red Raiders, the second longest winning streak over a single team in school history. Lufkin, who improved to 3-0 to start a season for the first time since 2010, pulled one of the state's biggest upsets last Friday as the Panthers defeated No. 3 ranked A&M Consolidated, 31-14. The Panthers are riding high into 2022 one a young group that looks determined to get the Pack to the top of the state's elite. Fresh off a season that saw the Pack miss the post season for the first time in over years, Lufkin looks destined to get back into the post season run, as they enter into district play against a host of new teams. 7-5A Division I slides Lufkin, Longview and Tyler into a district with McKinney North, Lancaster, Forney, West Mesquite and North Mesquite as the seven teams get underway with competition this Friday night. Longview and Lufkin meet at Abe with the first district game between the two since 2003. Lufkin rides an 8-game district winning streak over the Lobos. Longview's last district win over the Pack came back in 1998. However, things are quite different between the two overall since the Lobos and Panthers last meet in district. Longview comes into Abe Martin Stadium holding a 5-game winning streak over the Panthers, and has won 11 of the last 13 meetings between the two schools. The last meeting between the two schools came in 2020 when the Lobos knocked off Lufkin, 41-5, in bi-district play. It was the largest Longview win over the Panthers since 1976. The Lobos enter Abe Martin Stadium looking to continue a run of success at the stadium that they have not had in over two decades.

That’s the word of the week for the Lobos, following a 48-11 victory over their rivals to the east in the Marshall Mavericks. Longview’s win over the Mavericks handed the Lobos their first 2-0 start in three seasons while also registering their 7th consecutive victory over Marshall. Why dominance you ask? Because they also marked Longview’s 21st victory in 22 seasons over the Marshall Mavericks. A team victory all the way around, saw no Lobo other than Jordan Allen go over the 100 yard mark in any facet of the game. Four turnovers helped bring the Lobos to victory, Longview’s 203rd in 247 games at Lobo Stadium. On top of the dominance Longview has over their rivals to the east, the Lobos look to continue that dominance over their rivals to the west. The Lobos head to Tyler’s Rose Stadium for the second consecutive season to take on the Red Raiders, following up on a 46-20 victory last season after the Lobos fell down 10-0. Longview has now won 17-in-a-row over the Red Raiders, dating back to 2003. Longview actually led at halftime, 14-3, in their last loss to the Red Raiders before Tyler Lee at the time was able to come back for an 18-14 victory back in 2003. In the round robin district at the time, the Lobos got revenge on the Red Raiders that season in a 22-21 win at Rose Stadium, to start the second longest winning streak in school history. The Lobos stand just two years away from tying a school record, from when Longview won 19 consecutive against Marshall back in the 1970s into the late 1980s. Overall, Longview has dominated the series between the two schools, winning 46 out of a possible 62 meetings. Longview’s last loss in Rose Stadium to the Red Raiders came back in 2002, when Matt Flynn scored with 4 minutes remaining to lift Lee to a 28-21 win. The Lobos, as started earlier, are off to their first 2-0 start since 2019, and their 52nd 2-0 start in school history. The Lobos head back to their home away from home in Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium for the 79th time in their history, riding a 50-27-1 record all-time. Longview has won their last 8 contests at Rose Stadium, and under John King, Longview holds a 20-1 record at the stadium. Speaking of John King, the Lobos head to Tyler with a chance to make history. With last week’s win, coach King improved to 199-44 all-time as head coach of the Lobos. 100 coaches previously had hit the 200 win mark as head coach with King sitting on the edge just one win away. King actually has already celebrated 200 wins, but a forfeit to Evangel back in 2008 took one victory away. For the Red Raiders, after a close loss to Lufkin to open their season, the Red Raiders nabbed a surprise victory over cross town rival Tyler High in four overtimes, despite losing the ball four times on fumbles and two times through interceptions. The Red Raiders managed just 111 yards passing in the victory.

But the first time since 2018, the Lobos and Mavericks will both enter the contest with undefeated records. Longview, the state’s #1 ranked team in 5A Division I according to Dave Campbell’s Texas Football, avoid the mass upsets we saw across the state in the opening week by a dominating 36-10 victory over the McKinney Boyd Broncos. Longview was paced by their all-everything receiver Jalen Hale, who became the first ever Lobo to catch 30 touchdowns, and another edition to the running back lore of Longview High in Taylor Tatum, who rushed for three scores entering his junior season. Three year starter Jordan Allen had his best game as a Lobo starter, throwing for two touchdowns and 201 yards in the win over Boyd. Jalen Hale’s 2nd quarter touchdown that gave him 30th career score, marked just the 12th time a Lobo had registered 30 or more touchdowns in a career. Hale is now tied for 11th all-time in Lobo history in touchdowns scored. Allen himself is moving up the history books, his two tosses for scores pushed him into a tie for 4th all-time in passing touchdowns in Lobo history. The win for Longview was the largest season opening victory, 26 points, since their 2011 victory over Marshall which finished 30-0. For Marshall, an unexpected win has hopes high as can be as they head to Lobo Stadium for the 2nd consecutive season. The Mavericks dominated old time rival Tyler High, with a 40-29 scoreline a bit deceiving. Marshall controlled the contest the entire way, rushing for over 300 yards aided by 153 from J.Q. Davis and 121 from Byrd Robinson. The 1-0 start is just third win to open a season for Marshall since 2016. Marshall enters Lobo Stadium looking to end quite a few running streaks. First, the Mavericks have not started 2-0 since 2015. A 2-0 start mark just the fifth 2-0 start for Marshall since 1997. The Mavericks also enter looking to end a series that has become completely dominated by the Lobos. Marshall has not defeated the Lobos since the 2015 season, marking a 6-game losing streak to their rival from the east. Longview, overall, has won 20 of the last 21 meetings between the two programs, with that 28-25 loss in 2015 marking the lone exception. The longest streak for the Mavericks will come in the way of the stadium they’re entering. Marshall’s last win in Lobo Stadium came back in 1998, when the Mavericks upset another #1 ranked Lobo squad at the time, 35-28 in double overtime. Since that overtime loss, the Lobos have won the last 10 meetings by an average score of 40-12, having been shutout the last 11 quarters overall. Marshall’s last score at Lobo came back in the first quarter of the 2017 match up. For Longview’s head coach John King, he enters the Marshall contest on the quest for 200. King sits at 198-44, just two wins shy of 200 in his career. King also sits 1 shy of his 85th win inside Lobo Stadium. King coach teams have recorded an 84-6 record inside Lobo Stadium, with Longview having won their last eight contests at home. Under John King, Longview is 16-2 in their home opener, with both losses coming to Tyler High. The series sits at 4th most games played in a single series in the history of Texas High School football. A series that dates back to 1909, only three series have played more with El Campo vs Bay City sitting in top spot expecting to play their 119th game this season, Denison vs Sherman just finishing their 118th edition and Cuero-Yoakum scheduled to play their 114th contest in two weeks. Early on in the series, the Mavericks dominated the series, winning 18 of the first 22 match ups leading up to 1931. After a year off from playing each other in 1932, an 18-0 win in 1933 changed the turn of the series. Since that 1933 victory, Longview has recorded an 62-24-4 series advantage but things were not as dominating for the Lobos until a 1969 victory that started a 19-year streak that still sees the Lobos riding a 43-9-1 advantage.

The Lobos held the Cowboys to 107 yards on the night while rushing for 261. In 1983, Charles Smith hauled in a 46 yard reception before Joe Johnson rushed in from 10 yards out but it wasn’t enough for Longview to catch Fort Worth Eastern Hills in a 26-15 loss to the Highlanders. The loss snapped a 20-year opening game winning streak for the Lobos. In 1988, Steve Boyette rushed for three scores for the Stallions in a 28-14 North Mesquite victory over the Lobos. Renard Dixon and Mike Tidwell tallied for the Lobos, in a game Longview was held to just 88 rushing yards. In 1994, Isaiah Stoker tallied twice with Chris Butcher rushing in for another as Longview knocked off Waco 20-13 at Paul Tyson Stadium. In 2006, Chris Lacy returned a fumble 50 yards for a score tacked on with a Jazmon Moon touchdown and Zach Decker field goal to give Longview a 15-13 lead late in the 4th before West Monroe’s Don Brown rushed in from 3 yards out with 30 seconds left in the game to give the Rebels a 19-15 victory over the Lobos. Longview had held the Rebs to just 150 yards of offense on the day. In 2016, Kendrevian White rushed for four scores in a 56-7 beat down of Marshall at Maverick Stadium. The Lobos rushed for 321 yards, while holding the Mavs to 222 total. 5 different Lobos scored in total.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES: 11.23.2013 - Longview 27, McKinney Boyd 10 - Wildcat-Ram Stadium FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: Another season falls upon us. For the 113th time, the Longview Lobos take to the field to open a season. And for the 19th time, John King leads those Longview Lobos as head coach of the program. It’s been an off season of optimism for the Lobos, and one King has acknowledged has the potential to be an extremely special one. Following a dominating Seven on Seven performance in Tyler and then in College Station at the state tournament, Jordan Allen returns as quarterback for the Lobos for his third and final season. It’s one that Allen looks to redeem himself after struggling in his sophomore season of 2020, followed by losing the starting position in 2021. Each season saw the Lobos end their season in the Regional round against Denton Ryan. It looks to be be a redeeming season as well for the rest of the program, as the Lobos have seen consecutive seasons for the first time in the John King era that Longview did not reach 10 or more wins (9 both seasons), as well as the first time of not winning the district championship in consecutive seasons during King’s tenure. Returning along side Allen is a host of other Lobos that had significant impact on the 2021 season, no bigger than Jalen Hale. Already the holder for receiving touchdowns in a career as a Lobo, Hale will have his eyes set on a breaking the receiving yards in a career mark as he sits just under 800 yards away from Kamden Perry’s mark. Sophomore sensation Taylor Tatum returns for his junior season as does Longview’s group of sophomore secondary men. For just the second time in their history, the Lobos head to McKinney, Texas to take on an opponent as Longview opens the 2022 campaign against the McKinney Boyd Broncos. Longview’s first visit to McKinney occurred just a season ago, in a 37-35 shocking upset against McKinney North. The loss marked the first time a John King coached Lobo squad had lost to a team sitting at under .500 entering the contest. A 5 turnover day, including three interceptions by Jordan Allen, sealed the fate for the Lobos on the day. Longview and McKinney Boyd meet for the second time in their respective histories after last meeting in 2013’s 5A Division II Area Round. The Lobos overcame a slow start, seeing themselves trailing 10-7 at halftime from Richardson’s Wildcat-Ram Stadium, to roll away in the second half of a 27-10 victory over the Broncos. Longview’s trip to the McKinney will be the first of three over the course of the next 12 months. The Lobos will return next season to take on McKinney High in the same classic, most likely a Saturday evening affair, before a late October district trip against McKinney North. Friday’s meeting will be just the fifth all-time for the Lobos against a McKinney ISD school. Prior to Longview’s 2013 win over McKinney Boyd, the Lobos knocked off McKinney High back in 1937, 32-7. As well as two district meetings against McKinney North that has seen the Lobos and Bulldogs split their meetings. As the new season gets underway, the Lobos see a quite a bit of change in their district for the next two seasons. After losing Wylie East and Highland Park to Class 6A, and Sherman to another district inside Region II, the Lobos will see North Mesquite and Lufkin return to their district schedules as well as facing off against Lancaster for the third consecutive season following back to back playoff victories over the Tigers. On top of those three teams being added to the slate, Longview will take on the Forney Jackrabbits for the first time in their history this season. It’s sure to be one for the records books, as the Lobos enter the 2022 season ranked No. 1 in Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine.

Two of the state's winningest programs renew a budding rivalry as #4 Longview travels to #3 Highland Park for the second part of their two game series in district play. The two programs previously had not met since their 1986 5A Regional playoff match up when the Lobos ran for a playoff school record 496 yards on the Scots, in a 41-14 beatdown. Last season, the two teams met at Lobo Stadium that saw the Lobos fall at home for the first time in 21 contests with the Scots holding on for an 18-13 defensive battle victory. It was head coach John King's second district home loss since arriving to Longview High. The Scots will be facing an even more impressive streak, as Highland Park looks to hold onto a district home winning streak that dates back to 1998. Scots' head coach Randy Allen has yet to lose a single home district playoff game in his 24 seasons at the helm of the state's winningest program. In fact, Randy Allen has just two home losses in his entire career at home. The last home loss came in 2019, as the Lone Star Rangers defeated Highland Park 30-19. Last week, the Lobos saw their most impressive victory of the year as the result was never in doubt in a 56-0 win over Wylie East. It marked the 199th victory at this version of Lobo Stadium. Highland Park sought off an unexpected challenge at Sherman on Thursday fternoon, before pulling away in the fourth quarter to win 35-17. Both teams have had their struggles this season. Longview opened the 2021 season with a crushing 41-7 defeat to the defending 5A Division I state champions while Highland Park opened their season with a similar crushing defeat in a 45-21 loss to 6A Division II state finalist, Southlake Carroll. Since the opening losses, both teams have had up and downs but have managed to win every game on their schedule as the Lobos enter at 5-1 and the Scots enter at 4-1. The Lobos come into Highlander Stadium riding a 13-game road district winning streak, with the last road district loss coming in 2017 when Mesquite Horn knocked off the Lobos, 52-34. That contest marked just the second game in Lobo history that a DFW team had score 50 or more points on the Lobos. Longview and Highland Park have had a short but memorable series, with Friday's game being just the 9th meeting between the two schools. The Lobos and Scots met in 1924, the first playoff game in Longview football history. Highland Park walked away with that victory, 20-0, at Ownby Stadium. The first time Longview ever visited a version of Highlander Stadium came in 1938 where the defending 1A State Champions saw the Scots pull away in the 4th quarter to defeat the Lobos, 26-6. Longview got some version of revenge the next season in 1939, when Charles Sapp rushed in for the Lobo score in a 6-0 victory at old Lobo Stadium. After a 1962 victory for the Scots at Lobo, the two teams started a two game series in 1966 and 1967. In 1966, Steve Judy got the scoring started for the Lobos in the first quarter but the Scots proved to be too much racking up 23 first downs and 263 rushing yards in a 33-14 Scot victory in Longview's last visit to old Highlander Stadium. In 1967, the Lobos would prove to the state they were for real in a dominating 37-22 victory at Lobo Stadium over the Scots. The last two match ups came in the previously mentioned 1986 encounter and last season's meeting. This will be Longview's first ever visit to the new Highlander Stadium. No doubt it will be one for the ages as the Lobos and Scots meet in what should be for the district championship, one more time.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES: 08.28.2021 - Denton Ryan 40, Longview 7 - Ford Center at the Star 12.26.2020 - Denton Ryan 27, Longview 9 - Mesquite Memorial Stadium FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: Rematch. That seems to be the theme of Longview's 2021 playoff run, as for the second straight week the Lobos will meet an opponent they played in the 2020 post season. This team, it's a rematch of not only a 2020 playoff opponent but also a 2021 regular season opponent. For the 3rd time in 11 month, Longview takes on #1 ranked Denton Ryan. The Lobos and Raiders never met before last year's Boxing Day match up, but since have gotten extremely familiar with each other. And for Longview, it hasn't been pretty. The Raiders have controlled both match ups with the Lobos, rolling to two convincing victories. Last season's playoff match up proved to be the closer of the two, as the Raiders took a 13-7 halftime lead before shutting down Longview's offense in the 2nd half and rolling to a four score victory. This season, Longview led 7-6 after the first quarter before a disastrous 2nd quarter completely derailed the Lobos in the season opener in a 40-7 loss. The 33-point loss to open the season is tied for the 3rd worst opening season loss in Longview history. The two teams took massively different paths to reach this point of the season. For Denton Ryan, it's the same as it's been the last couple of seasons, however an early season 14-7 loss to cross town rival Denton Guyer ended a long winning streak for the Raiders. Since though, it's been a 10-game winning streak again for the Raiders. Ryan really was only tested once all season, in a 7-6 win over Frisco Lone Star. The Rangers, in that game, had the ball inside the 15 as time was running out before the Raiders recovered a fumble to win the district championship. Last week, the Raiders pulled out a 28-20 victory over Magnolia West. The Raiders built up a 21-0, and 28-7 lead before the Bulldogs pulled themselves back into the game, but the Raiders were never in danger of losing the game. Longview's road has been much bumpier. Following the opening season loss, the Lobos struggled on offense all year before finding their groove in a quarterback change following the 3rd loss of the season. The 3 regular season losses is the most for Longview since 2012. Since the quarterback change, the Lobos have rolled to their solid victories, including last week's 34-14 win over #10 Lancaster. The two teams return to Mesquite Memorial Stadium, the location of last season's playoff match up. It will be Longview's 16th visit to the Mesquite Memorial, and 7th playoff meeting. The Lobos are 11-4 in the previous 15 games, and 3-3 in the previous 6 playoff games. The Lobos have started 0-3 against just two teams in their history, which is on the line tonight against Denton Ryan. The Lobos started 0-3 against Atlanta High, and also started 0-8 against Shreveport Byrd to open a series, though against Marshall the Lobos also started 0-5-1. Only two teams in Longview's history currently hold a 3 or high game lead against the Lobos, Highland Park (3) and Shreveport Byrd (8). Overall, there's only been 31 times in Longview's history that they have lost 3 or more times against a single team, and the only team that currently holds a 3 or more game winning streak over the Lobos is Shreveport Byrd. Playoff wise, Longview will go for their 75th all-time playoff victory tonight.

In 1936, the Lobos hosted Gladewater and defeated the Bears, 20-2, at Lobo Stadium. In 1942, Longview defeated Gladewater 20-13 at Lobo Stadium. In 1953, Bob Bartlett tallied twice, once on defense and once on offense, before Tony Rothrock pulled the Lobos to within a score at 19-13 in the fourth quarter. Marshall’s Harry Ford would finish the game off though with a 7 yard run in a 26-13 Marshall victory at Maverick Stadium. Four Lobo turnovers plagued Longview on the night. In 2011, Trey Williams rushed in a 58 yard touchdown before taking a 99-yard kickoff return to open the 2nd half to the house in a 17-6 Spring DeKaney victory over Longview. A windy day hampered the Lobo offense, in a season that saw the Wildcats run all the way to a State Championship.

Kincaide Stadium FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW Rematch. Same time, same round, same place. That's what Longview and Lancaster assured would happen in the 2021 Class 5A Division II Region II Area round after their bi-district victories in round one. The Lobos, 7-3 and in 2nd place in district 7-5A Division I, won their 8th consecutive home game and their 6th consecutive bi-district game at Lobo Stadium with a 45-24 victory over Magnolia. In the first meeting between the two schools, it looked like it was going to be a complete route for the Lobos after Longview jumped out to a 28-7 lead early in the 2nd quarter. However, that all changed in a 4 minute span that saw the Bulldogs score 17 points heading into halftime. Despite Longview leading 28-24 at the break in a half that they dominated, the Lobos needed an 8 minute drive to start the 3rd quarter to really set the tone and walk away with a three score victory over the Bulldogs. Willie Nelson led the ways for Longview, as the sophomore recorded 3 interceptions on the night, one for a score on the second play of the game. Joshua Thomas and Jalen Hale led the way on offense with 5 touchdowns score between the two. Lancaster, district 6 winners for the second straight season, had a much tougher task after trailing 15-6 at halftime in their match up against the Frisco Reedy Lions. A dominating 3rd quarter that saw the Tigers score 21 points helped Lancaster to another bi-district victor, rolling 35-15 in the second half. The Tigers are riding a 10-game winning streak, following their season opening defeat to Port Arthur Memorial, 27-7. For Longview, no doubt they'll be feeling their ride to get to the 2nd round was a much tougher task than what Lancaster has faced. The Lobos faced off against #1 Denton Ryan to open the season, #3 Highland Park in district play and #1 Bryant out of Arkansas to finish non-district play. Out of all four non-district opponents for the Lobos, all four are still playing football at this point of the season, including Highland Park from district play. Every single team on Lancaster's schedule has had their season end outside of the Tigers themselves. For the Lobos, last week's Bi-District victory was the 16th win in the last 18 seasons under John King in round 1. The only years Longview has failed to make the 2nd round since John King took over has been 2005 and 2016. Both losses came by 1 point on missed field goals to end the contest. As stated earlier, this is a rematch from last season's Area round that saw the Lobos walk away with a 56-20 win over then #3 Lancaster. In that meeting, the Lobos jumped out to a 35-7 halftime lead as they held the Tigers to just 5 first downs on the night. The score itself doesn't show just how dominate the Lobos were overall. This will be the 3rd meeting overall, with the first match up between the two coming back in the 2008 4A Area round. Longview rolled to a 49-22 victory in that contest, on their way to a Class 4A Division I State Finalist season. CLASS 5A DIVISION I REGION II BI-DISTRICT RESULTS: Denton Ryan 49, Dallas W.T.

That's what the Longview Lobos gave their fan base following an upset loss to McKinney North the week prior to the regular season finale, in one of John King's worst losses as head coach. The Lobos, on senior night, rolled to a 49-0 victory over the Tyler Lions, to clinch the 2nd seed in district play and make their that Longview would host a playoff game for the 5th consecutive season. The 49-0 win over Tyler marked the largest margin of victory ever by a Lobo club over the Lions, topping last year's 44-point victory. It continued a streak of 9 consecutive seasons finishing 2nd or better in district play, and 17 out of the 18 seasons. John King's only season to not finish in the top two came in 2012, when the Lobos finished 3rd. Longview stilled finished as the top seed in 5A Division II season. Last week's win was spearheaded by the return of Joshua Thomas to the Lobo offense. Thomas, who has been injured off and on all season, has struggled to see playing time with Jordan Allen taking the reigns most games for the Lobos. The senior accounted for 3 touchdowns on Friday against the Lions to help seal the victory. Next up for Longview is a first time ever meeting with the Magnolia Bulldogs. Magnolia, 7-3, heads into the contest after blowing out New Caney, 52-21. Magnolia's only three losses this season came to Katy Tompkins (9-1), College Station (10-0) and Magnolia West (9-1). Magnolia does get to make the nearly 4 hour drive to Lobo Stadium, though it is not the longest drive the program will have faced in their history. Two years ago, the Bulldogs traveled to AT&T Stadium to take on Highland Park and were blown out 63-28. Much different team from then however, after the Bulldogs won district just a year ago before falling to Frisco Lone Star in round 2. Longview will return home after senior night looking to extend a home winning streak of 7 games. John King has lost just five home games in his 17 years as head coach of Longview, the last coming to Highland Park last season. The Lobos have won 5 consecutive home playoff games (2009, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020), with the only loss at Lobo Stadium (new) coming to Bryan back in 1984. Longview heads into bi-district play having won their last four bi-district contests, with the last loss coming at Beaumont West Brook in 2016. Prior to that, Longview had not lost a bi-district contest since 2005. John King sits at 15-2 all-time in bi-district playoff games. Both losses ended in one-point losses (14-13, 34-33). It will be Longview's 21st consecutive trip to the post season. Magnolia heads into bi-district play having won their last two bi-district contests, after having missed the post season in 2018. The Bulldogs last lost a bi-district game in 2017 when they fell to Cedar Park, 24-20. While Longview goes for playoff win #73, Magnolia is looking to get just their 20th playoff victory in their program's history, one that dates back to 1912. The furthest Magnolia has ever gone in the post season was back in 2008, when they were defeated by Friendswood in the Regional Round.

In 1948, Gahlen Dinkle rushed in from 14 yards out in the only score of a 6-0 Marshall victory over Longview at Lobo Stadium. The Lobos were held to 104 total yards on the night. In 1954, Longview’s Tony Rothrock rushed in from 10 yards out before Nacogdoches struck for a 54-yard and 40-yard score in the 2nd and 3rd quarters in a 14-7 victory for the Dragons at SFAU Memorial Stadium. In 1965, John Harrison got the scoring started before three other Lions would tally as John Tyler defeated Longview, 28-0, at Lobo Stadium. The Lions managed just 146 total yards in the win. Four Lobo turnovers were the difference. In 1971, Clifford Davis rushed for two scores while Alvin Davis rushed for another as Lufkin piled up 24 points in the 2nd quarter in a 30-14 victory over Longview at Panther Stadium. In 1976, 7 different Lobos tallied as Longview rushed for 324 yards and threw for another 103 yards in a 44-6 victory over Lufkin at Lobo Stadium. In 1983, Charles Smith hauled in an 80-yard bomb from Eric Harris with under a minute to go as Longview knocked off Killeen Ellison, 14-7, at Floyd Casey Stadium in Waco. In 1993, Chris Butcher and L’Vendric Fite Mach tallied twice as Longview ran away from Spring, 49-25, at Bowers Stadium in Huntsville. Longview threw just 4 passes on the night, while Spring threw 37 times. In 2005, Zack Decker kicked two field goals but the final one went wide in the final seconds of the game as South Garland upset nationally ranked Longview, 14-13. Phillip Payne’s 7 yard touchdown reception proved to be the different, as Decker went 2 for 4 on the day in field goals. In 2011, four different Lobos tallied as a windy Tiger Stadium in Corsicana as Longview knocked off Temple, 24-3. The Wildcats were held to just 153 total yards on the night as the Lobos were held to just a 7-3 halftime lead before breaking things out in the 3rd quarter.

Once again, we have seen this story with Highand Park and how it unfolds over the years under long time, legendary HC Randy Allen who brought home his 28th district title in his 40 years as a HC. Those wins aren’t disappearing in 2021. The 2020 district MVP Brayden Schager is headed to Hawaii, but surely by now, one has learned to never question whether Highland Park will have a QB or not. 2023 QB Brennan Storer (5’11 180) will be the next great Highland Park QB, with a heavy emphasis on the word great. Storer already holds numerous FBS offers and was an Adidas All-American as a freshman. He’s one of the top signal callers in the nation for the 2023 class. There will be plenty of targets with second team all-district SR WR John Rutledge (6’0 170) back. JR WR’s Jackson Heis (6’3 180) and Grayson Schrank (5’9 160) were also heavily involved in the pass catching for Highland Park in 2020. A great offensive line has been depleted with the only returning starter being first team all-district SR RG Grant Gibson (6’4 280). But again, don’t let it fool you. There is plenty of great youth moving up for Highland Park, such as 2023 LT Robert Sweeney (6’6 250), who already has offers from ACC and Big 10 programs. The defense was hit hard by graduation. But so were a lot of the other teams in the district. The good news is 3 year varsity vet Jack Curtis returns. Curtis (6’4 220) is a dominant defensive end with several FBS offers. The other returning starter is OLB George Wright (6’0 205) who was first team all-district and will definitely have a realistic shot at the district defensive MVP. The other 9 positions on defense will need to be replaced but Highland Park will reload. Also, talk about a tough stadium to go into and win, Highlander Stadium makes a strong case for being the toughest place to play in Texas. Since Randy Allen took over the Scots in 1999, Highland Park is 112-2 at home. With Longview coming to town, Highland Park naturally gets the edge because of that. The Scots will be the Scots in 2021. Highland Park SR OLB George Wright Longview Lobos Head Coach: John King 188-40 (94-7) 17 seasons at Longview 2020 result: 9-3 (4-1), 5A D1 Regional Returners: O = 6, D = 2 Returning All District: 7 A late game fumble and costly penalties vs Highland Park ultimately led to the Lobos coming 5 points short of their 15th district title in 17 seasons under John King. Longview started peaking in the weeks following before running into a buzz saw called Denton Ryan in the regional round. Many big names graduate for Longview, especially defensively. But as usual, the Lobos have ammo left in the chamber. RB Kaden Meredith, the programs’ all-time leading scorer, graduates with nearly two dozen offers in hand to choose from. However, the Lobo offense looks to be explosive in 2021. Longview returns the most all district players in the district with 7, and 3 of them reside on the offensive line. Longview will probably be home of the best offensive line in the district with SR LT DeQualin Vaughn (6’3 250), SR C Connor Cox (6’1 250), SR RG Jatavian Bush (6’1 290) and JR RT Jax Norman (6’1 230) all returning. JR LG Blair Williams (6’2 310) was one of 10 sophomores that was on varsity for Longview in 2020; has FBS potential. King called his WR group in 2020 “the best that he has had since being at Longview” and most of those guys return. It all starts with JR WR Jalen Hale (6’3 180) who already has nearly 20 major FBS offers and is considered the top WR in Texas for the 2023 class, 7th in the nation. JR JT Wright (6’4 190) was also a sophomore WR on varsity in 2020 giving Longview a dynamic and rangy group of wideouts in 2021. QB Jordan Allen (6’1 180) started for Longview as a sophomore but the QB position is still one to keep an eye on in the spring. The JV's lone loss on the season was a close one to Highland Park but Longview has a special 2024 group that went undefeated as freshmen in 2020, outscoring their opponents 339-43. There is high level talent all over that group, starting with RB Taylor Tatum (5’11 190) who may be taking over the RB duties for Longview in 2021 as a sophomore. Tatum is projected to be one of the top RB’s in Texas for the 2024 class. Defensively only two starters return. Still, the front 7 should once again be solid with SR LB Devean Isaac (5’11 210) returning from an all-district performance. The other returning starter is JR S TaDarion Boone who earned district defensive newcomer of the year as a sophomore. Players like SR DL Jesse Fairchild (6’2 260) and SR DL DK Stanford (6’2.5 240) saw significant playing time. JR JJ Rougley (6’3 215) was a varsity TE as a sophomore but could make OLB/DE his home. Longview will be a youthful, but talented team. A district title, and then some is not out of the question for the Lobos in 2021. Longview JR WR Jalen Hale McKinney North Bulldogs Head Coach: Mike Fecci 69-61 (47-34) 12 seasons at McKinney North 2020 result: 3-7 (3-3), 5A D1 Bi-District Returners: O = 8, D = 4 Returning All District: 4 It has been an up and down era for McKinney North football under HC Mike Fecci; A true rollercoaster ride over the years. 2019 was one of the ‘up’ years for McKinney North as they ripped off a 10-2 record, winning the district title. But 2020 was not as pleasant. The Bulldogs were only able to muster up 3 wins. Still, they did enough in district play to make post season for the 5th straight year. The Bulldogs will look to make it 6 straight in 2021 behind 8 returning starters offensively, the 2nd most in the district. McKinney North was one of four teams in the district that started a sophomore QB as Gavin Constantine (5’10 170) returns for his JR season to lead the Bulldog offense. The programs’ all-time leading WR JJ Henry is off to Ole Miss, but the other wideouts return. Korbin Hendrix (6’2 170) is a tall rangy WR that started on the outside for the Bulldogs as a sophomore in 2020. SR WR Luke Paley (6’2 190) returns to his slot position; a 3 year varsity starter for McKinney North. JR WR Kyler Moore (5’8 160) also saw significant time as a sophomore and looks to be Henry’s replacement on the outside. Another 3 year starter is SR TE/DE Dylan Frazier who starts on both sides of the ball. At 6’5 260, Frazier is rated one of the top defensive ends in Texas; holding numerous FBS offers. His older brother Brandon Frazier is a TE at Auburn. The OL will be anchored by SR RT Seteye Akpabio (6’3 290), another 3 year starter and FBS recruit. There’s a high amount of experience returning offensively, but defensively there’s a lot of question marks particularly in the front 7. As mentioned before, Dylan Frazier returns at DE but the Bulldogs will have to replace the other 3 positions along the defensive front 4. SR Jake McClain (6’0 200) returns to his mike LB position after a second team all-district performance in 2020. SR OLB Marques Alexander (5’11 180) was also second team all-district in 2020. The last returning starter is CB David Walker (5’10 160), who was another sophomore starter last season. McKinney North never really has great sub-varsity teams but they always seem to play slightly better when they make it to the varsity level. The Bulldogs actually had a great 9th grade group in 2020 that probably would have won the 9th grade district title in a district without Longview and Highland Park. You can expect several players from that group to make an impact for McKinney North in 2021, specifically on defense. McKinney North SR DE/TE Dylan Frazier Wylie East Raiders Head Coach: Vacant 2020 result: 1-7 (0-6), No Playoffs Returners: O = 6, D = 5 Returning All District: 1 The new year will bring a new coaching staff to the Wylie East football program. Back in mid-December, Mike Dormady stepped down as HC, but will remain an employee within the district. In his 3 seasons as head coach, Wylie East accumulated a 5-24 record. The program failed to win a single district game in his 3 years as head coach. A new era is about to begin for the Raiders but whoever lands this job will not be short of weapons. JR QB TJ Washington (5’11 185) will return to the East offense for the 3rd straight year. Washington, who earned district newcomer of the year as a freshman back in 2019, is a dynamic talent at the QB position who recently just received his first FBS offer. Bam Bam Johnson graduates at RB, but Washington won’t be short of targets. SR WRs Kolby Atkins and Joshua Hollingsworth (5’10 175) return for East. Hollingsworth is a 3 year varsity starter. Another player that saw significant playing time at WR is JR CJ Jackson (5’10 160), who has been on varsity since his freshman year, and is also very good on the track. The OL will have to replace 3 positions but SR LT Zane Brown and SR RG Marcus Harbert (6’1 250) are back. The Raider offense also returns TE Michael Oparah (6’0 220). Another solid player is 3 year varsity vet SR Tyler Jackson (6’1 200), who is hearing from FBS schools as an athlete. He has spent time at RB, TE and LB. The lone returning all-district player on the roster is JR DE Anthony James (6’6 240). James is considered the top defensive linemen in Texas for the 2023 cycle, with early offers from Georgia, LSU, Texas and others. He’s also the lone returning starter in the East front 7 but if Tyler Jackson becomes a full time LB, that’s a good nucleus to build around. The secondary will be experienced with all 4 starters back: SR S Caden Roeschen (5’11 180), SR S Maddox Fraley (5’10 160), JR CB Jakari Alexander (5’10 165) and SR CB Jason Olford. Wylie East may not have a ton of wins the past few years but as recently as 2015-2016, the program was accomplishing 9-10 win seasons. The next guy up is certainly inheriting some nice foundation to get the program back on track. Wylie East JR DE Anthony James Tyler Lions Head Coach: Ricklan Holmes 71-38 (42-14) 9 seasons at John Tyler 2020 result: 2-7 (2-4), No Playoffs Returners: O = 9, D = 5 Returning All District: 3 The last two seasons have been a nightmare for Tyler High. A 3 win season in 2019 was followed by a 2 win season in 2020. Now the Lions are looking to avoid 3 straight seasons of 3 wins and below for the first time since the program went 6-24 under Kelvin Ratliff from 2002-2004. That was arguably the worst 3 year stretch in program history, and 17 years later, CUJO is looking to elude a similar 3 year run. The good news is there is plenty of experience and upcoming talent to help avoid it. The 9 starters that CUJO return on offense are the most in the district. The WR position is especially deep with 4 returning starters, 3 in which were all-district players as sophomores in 2020: JR Jadavion Lacy (6’1 175), JR Makavion Potts and JR Montrell Wade (6’2 180), who is one of the top WR’s in the state for the 2023 cycle. Potts also has D1 potential from his slot position. The OL brings back plenty of experience with JR LT Avery Coleman, SR LG Jordan Jackson (6'0 260) and SR RG Cornelius Hartsfield (5’10 230) all returning; Hartsfield being a 3 year starter for the Lions. No other team in the district rotated at the RB position the way Tyler High did last season. Look for 2024 RB Derrick McFall (5’11 175) to be more unleashed after seeing varsity carries as a freshman in 2020. 3 year varsity vet Eli Sanchez (5’9 165) returns at QB. Switching over to CUJOs 3-4 defense, both inside LBs return in SR LB Jacob Villela (5’11 180) and JR LB Tory Howland (6’2 205). SR OLB Eric Munoz (5’11 185) also returns, giving the Lions plenty of experience at the LB position. JR S Zavier Tatum (6’1 190) and sophomore CB Zachaun Williams (6’1 175) will lead the secondary. The biggest concern will be the defensive front where Ricklan Holmes will have to replace several players. Look for 2024 sophomore DE Jace Sanford (6’2 210) to make an impact for the Lions the next few years. The skill positions on this team are looking very good. Even the OL looks promising. IF the QB position comes along, CUJO could easily be a 3 seed in this district. If not it could be another long season. Retaining players will also be important this offseason as well. Tyler sophomore RB Derrick McFall Sherman Bearcats Head Coach: J.D. Martinez 24-28 (15-14) 5 seasons at Sherman 2020 result: 5-5 (4-1), 5A D1 Bi-District Returners: O = 3, D = 5 Returning All District: 0 After narrowly missing the playoffs in 2019, Sherman made the postseason as a 3 seed in 2020. A 5-5 season is not a lot to brag about in itself but Sherman’s 4-1 district record marked the programs’ best district outing since 2012. Talk about a program wide confidence booster going into the 2021 season. But there are major holes to fill with a good senior group graduating. To help fill holes Coach Martinez will look to a talented junior class that won district with a 7-2 record as freshmen in 2019. The bearcat JV did not have much success in 2020 but key sophomores being on the Bearcat varsity team had a lot to do with that. Graduation effected the Bearcat offense the most; losing 8 starters, including multiyear starter QB Tate Bethel. 2023 JR QB Phoenix Grant (6’1 180) backed up Bethel, and started at safety as a sophomore and figures to take over the QB spot. Good news for Grant is SR WR Elijah Chapman (6’4 180) returns. The only other returning starters on offense are SR LT Tavian Scruggs (6’3 250) and SR C Daniel Clark (5’10 255). On defense, there are a good amount of returners (5) but the Bearcats do lose several big names like LB Brandon Bonilla, who was the heart and soul of Sherman’s 3-3 defense the past few years. The good news is the entire defensive line returns in SR DE Anthony Gionfriddo, JR DT Chaz Brown (5’10.5 300) and SR DE Tito Chavez. Graduation was a huge blow to the LB positions but a name to know is 2023 JR OLB Logan Taylor (6’3 200) who saw significant playing time in 2020 as a sophomore. Phoenix Grant and Connor Clark (5’10 165) round out the returning starters on defense. Both started at safety positions in the secondary as sophomores, but as mentioned before, Grant will take over the QB position for the Bearcats so he may not be playing on both sides of the ball in 2021. SR CB Isaiah Jones (6’0 180) also saw significant playing time. Sherman’s JR class has talent and there are key pieces in the SR class. The Bearcats are a team that could finish anywhere from 3rd to 6th in this district. How well the other grades can complement that JR group will dictate that in 2021. Sherman JR safety Connor Clark West Mesquite Wranglers Head Coach: Frank Sandoval 1-9 (1-5) 1 season at West Mesquite 2020 result: 1-9 (1-5), No Playoffs Returners: O = 7, D = 2 Returning All District: 0 The 2020 season under first year HC Frank Sandoval was a rough one for the Wranglers. A big part of the 1-9 finish was bad defensive play. The West Mesquite defense gave up 35 PPG. To make matters even worse, the defense does not return much experience in 2021. The only two returning starters in the Wrangler 3-4 defense are defensive linemen Trevion Mitchell (6’5 275) and JD Cotton (6’2 270), both whom are seniors. Mitchell is a 3 year starter and potential FBS recruit at defensive end, but the coaching staff will have to replace the other 9 positions on defense, more than likely relying on move ups from sub-varsity teams that were not very good. On the bright side, the offense is a lot more experienced. SR RB D’Erian Mitchell returns to the backfield. JR Javion Jackson (5’11 155), SR Devin Duncan (6’2 170) and SR Jesus Nino (5’10 160) all return to West Mesquite’s WR core. The left side of the OL + C will need to be replaced but SR RG Donovan Hawthorne and JR RT Nicholas Singleton (6’3 310) both return. Frank Sandoval was certainly a good hire for West Mesquite coming into the season. Mexia was decent with him at the helm, and he has championship pedigree from his time on the Cedar Hill defensive coaching staff. But, West Mesquite’s problems appear to run deeper than returning starters or talent. The program appears to be having trouble keeping players. Going into the 2020 season, the Wranglers lost FBS 2022 QB Kevin Jennings to South Oak Cliff. They also lost FBS safety Jakobe Walton to McKinney High and others. It wasn’t long ago that West Mesquite was winning at least 7 games in a season. But it will be shocking to see the Wranglers finish anywhere but last in this district in 2021.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES: 11.27.2020 - Longview 55, McKinney North 10 - Lobo Stadium FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: A week of reflection and improvement. That's what Longview focused on this past week with their only idle week of the 2021 season. The idle week comes off the back of a 56-14 victory over the Sherman Bearcats, retribution nearly 45 years in the making. After a 1976 playoff loss to the Bearcats, the Lobos finally got their long awaited meeting with Sherman after last year's meeting was canceled due to COVID-19 at Sherman High. While the Bearcats struck first in the contest, the Lobos made little work the rest of the way, dominating Sherman 56-7 the rest of the way. Longview's sophomore back in Taylor Tatum rushed for a career-high 175 yards, and added three rushing scores in the win. The victory sets up a win and your in situation for Longview Thursday in McKinney, as the Lobos take on the Bulldogs of McKinney North. Longview, sitting 3-1 in district play, has two games left in it's regular season and will need to win both to clinch a home playoff game for the 5th consecutive season. But first, a playoff berth must be clinched and that's what the Lobos head to McKinney ISD for the first time looking to do. A win would clinch Longview's 21st consecutive playoff appearance, a school record. The last time the Lobos failed to make the post season came back in 2000, under first year head coach Pat Collins. McKinney North also heads into the game fresh off a dominating victory over Sherman. The unexpected result puts the Bulldogs into the same position as Longview, with a win clinching a playoff berth and perhaps a home playoff game if week 11 results were to turn out in their favor. After such a poor start to the season, the Bulldogs being a game away from clinching the post season is definitely a sense of relief. This will be the 4th all-time meeting against McKinney ISD for Longview, having previously won all 3 meetings. The Lobos are 1-0 against each McKinney, McKinney Boyd and McKinney North. This will, however, be the first time the Lobos have ever traveled to the city of McKinney for a football game of any sort. Longview's game on Thursday will also mark the first time since 1955 that the Lobos will have played two Thursday games during a regular season. Heading into Thursday's game, the Lobos will be one touchdown away from history in the form of Jalen Hale. Hale tied Kamden Perry's receiving touchdowns in a career against Sherman, with his 23rd career score.

Disappointment. Heartbreak. All the words and more that can sum up Longview's 21-16 loss at Highland Park last Friday night. The Lobos headed to University Park for the first time since 1966, and walked out with a five point loss in the second straight meeting against the Scots that ended by five points admist a ton of Longview errors. Trailing 7-3 at half, the Lobos saw a forced fumble returned for a score to open the second and that was that. While Longview fought back and had the ball with under 20 seconds to go, it was for naught as Longview could get no closer than those five points. The loss all but confirms that Longview's chance at a district crown has gone by the waist side for a second straight season. If a loss doesn't happen for the Scots, the Lobos will fail to win distrcit for the second straight season for the first time in the John King era. The win for the Scots also pushed them to a 3-game series lead against the Lobos. They currently sit as the only team in Texas to hold more than a 2-game lead over the Lobos, and one of just two teams in the county. Shreveport Byrd's 8-game lead is the worst series deficit for the Lobos, currently. The Lobos will now return home to take on the Sherman Bearcats, the first meeting in nearly 45 years. Last season, Longview was set to travel to Sherman for the first time before the Bearcats cited COVID reasoning and canceled the contest. That has not set well with many Longview fans in the last year, as many Sherman players and coaches went to twitter on Thursday morning claiming they were free to play. Whatever the fact, the game did not occur and Longview as not able to visit historic Bearcat Stadium. So this season, the Lobos welcome Sherman to Longview for the first time in a series that has more canceled games in it than it does games played. In 1955, the Lobos and Bearcats came to an agreement to play each other in Sherman. However, realignment forced the game to be canceled as Sherman had too many district opponent to play. The one game the two programs did face off in came back in 1976, when the two met at Texas Stadium in the Bi-District round of the 4A playoffs. A blocked punt led directly to Sherman's lone touchdown of the game. Jim Tutt's 33-yard field goal in the first quarter helped Longview get back into the game, but a 10-3 halftime deficit would be too much for the Lobos to overcome. The Lobos were able to get down to the Sherman 13 yard line on one drive late in the game, but an interception by Sherman would seal the deal and send the No. 2 ranked Lobos to an early exit from the post season. Longview returns to Lobo Stadium looking to win their 200th game at their stadium. Opened in 1976, the Lobos have played 243 contests heading into tonight. Since that opening game, an 18-0 win over Dallas Carter, the Lobos have compiled a 199-38-6 record Lobo Stadium. Longview is currently holding a 5-game winning streak at home.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES 10.30.2020 - Longview 52, Wylie East 17 - Wylie Stadium FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW It wasn't pretty by any stretch of the imagination. Two fumbles, 14 penalties and 138 penalty yards all helped plague the Lobos in their district opener against the West Mesquite Wranglers last Thursday. Longview jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead behind two Jalen Hale receiving scores, before the Wranglers fought back to tie the game as the two teams went into the break. It was helped by a poor pitch as the Lobos looked well on their way to a 21-0 lead. That poor pitch turned the game as Javion Jackson returned the fumble 68 yards for the score. In the second half, it was West Mesquite's turn to turn the ball over and have the game switch back to Longview's favor. The Wranglers were driving into Lobo territory when a double reverse pass back across the field was intercepted by Longview's Devean Isaac and returned it 53 yards to the Wrangler 15 yard line. 3 more interceptions later, and 35 points on the board, the Lobos ran away with a 56-28 victory over West Mesquite, winning their 4th straight district opener and moved to 16-2 in district openers under head coach John King. It was a record tying day for the 5-star receiver Jalen Hale, as his three scores tied a school record for receiving scores in a single game. He also moved into sole possession of 3rd place in Longview history for receiving scores in a career...as a junior. He passed former NFL receiver Malcolm Kelly with his three on Thursday night. Next up for the Lobos is a return to Lobo Stadium, following two energy filed victories. Longview takes on Wylie East for the 20th annual Green Out contest, which started back in 2002. The Lobos are 17-2 all-time in Green Out contests since the game began to take place. The Lobos have not lost a Green Out affair since John Tyler knocked the Lobos off in 2014. Longview's only other loss on Green Out night came in 2011 against #1 Allen. In district home opener, John King has coached the Lobos to a perfect 17-0 record, dating back to 2004. Longview last lost their district home opener in 2003, against #9 Tyler Lee, in a game Longview led 14-3 at halftime before falling 18-14. Longview and Wylie East will be meeting for the second time in their histories, with last season's extremely cold October meeting being the first. The Lobos dominated the contest from the get go, rolling to a 52-17 victory. The game was highlighted by a 75-yard kickoff return to open the second half by Jaquaris Cooper. Against Wylie ISD, the Lobos are a perfect 2-0. Longview also met Wylie High in 2015 during Regional Semi-Final round in the Lobos' first ever visit to AT&T Stadium in Arlington. 123 yards of penalties plagued the Lobos that day, but Longview was still able to walk away with a 35-14 victory. Longview enters (new) Lobo Stadium for 243rd time this Friday, dating back to 1976. The Lobos will be looking for their 199th victory all-time at their home stadium, having won the four games there. Longview, overall, has won 25 of their last 26 games at home and are a peachy 79-6 at home under head coach John King. Longview is an even better 48-2 in district contests under John King, with a 2016 loss to John Tyler and a 2020 loss to Highland Park keeping them from being perfect. For Wylie East, this will be the second longest road trip in school history. In 2016, Wylie East made the trip to play at Hallsville, defeating the Bobcats 49-0. Rain is expected Friday night, so make sure you bring your rain gear to Lobo.
