  1. LONGVIEW LOBOS (9-3) VS DENTON RYAN RAIDERS (11-1) DATE: Friday, November 26th, 2021 TIME: 3:00 PM LOCATION: Mesquite Memorial Stadium in Mesquite, Texas LONGVIEW BROADCAST: 106.5 FM JACK FM DENTON RYAN BROADCAST: TexasSportsProductions.com RAIDERS LEAD SERIES 2-0-0 The Raiders have a 1-0 lead when the game is a non-district contest.

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.
  2. LONGVIEW LOBOS (8-3) VS LANCASTER TIGERS (10-1) DATE: Friday, November 19th, 2021 TIME: 7:30 PM LOCATION: Mesquite Memorial Stadium in Mesquite, Texas LONGVIEW BROADCAST: 106.5 FM JACK FM LANCASTER BROADCAST: n/a LOBOS LEAD SERIES 2-0-0 The two schools have never played a non-district contest.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES 12.18.2020 - Longview 56, Lancaster 20 - Mesquite Memorial Stadium 11.21.2008 - Longview 49, Lancaster 22 - John E. 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.

In 1932, Longview and Palestine battled to a 6-6 tie at Fair Park in Longview. In 1937, Ray Cantrell hauled in a 9 yard pass before two defensive scores by the Lobos in the second half helped Longview to a 19-6 victory over Marshall at Maverick Stadium. In 1943, John Dunaway tallied the only Lobo score as Longview was held to 36 total yards in a 13-6 loss to Marshall at Maverick Stadium. 7 Lobo turnovers derailed Longview on the night. In 1954, Derry Swanger and James Wedding scores twice, and Billy Erie hauled in a score in-between as Texas High rolled over Longview, 34-0, at Grim Park.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES First meeting. FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW An answer, and a positive response. 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 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.

In 1921, Gilmer came to Longview and defeated Longview High, 14-0, at Fair Park. In 1922, Texas High drew a 40-0 halftime lead before adding a 20 points in the 3rd to lead Longview, 60-0, after 3. The Tigers did not let up, scoring 47 points in the final frame to knock off Longview 107-7 at City League Park in Texarkana. Longview managed just 14 yards on the day, giving up 639 total yards. In 1927, Longview dominated Pittsburg in Pittsburg to the tune of 72-0. In 1932, Longview and Mineola battled to a 6-6 tie at Fair Park in Longview. In 1938, Don Fambrough scored three times as the Lobos rushed away from Kilgore for a 48-7 victory at R.E. St. John Memorial Stadium. In 1955, Tony Rothrock rushed in from 1 yard out in the 1st quarter while Dub Thomas tallied a 3 yard score in the 4th but three Kilgore touchdowns sandwiched in-between gave Kilgore an 18-14 win over Longview at Lobo Stadium. In 1960, Longview fell behind 15-0 in the first half before Bill Ewing and Don Petty tallied two scores in the third quarter. Two 2-point conversions were missed, however, as Longview fell 15-12 to Marshall at Maverick Stadium. In 1966, Keith Parker gave Longview a 3-0 lead with a 21-yard field goal in the 2nd quarter before Marshall tallied two touchdowns. Steve Judy was able to return a 77-yard kickoff for a score but Longview ultimately fell 13-9 at Maverick Stadium in Marshall. In 1977, Dinky Edwards and Bobby Portley each tallied, with Jim Tutt’s field goal adding two more, as Longview rung up 245 yards rushing in a 17-7 win over Marshall at Lobo Stadium. In 1983, John Tyler took a 14-7 halftime lead before Joe Johnson tallied twice and Eric Harris scored from one yard out as Longview defeated John Tyler, 28-22, at Lobo Stadium.

In 2005, Michael George and David Robinson each tallied while Chris Ivory’s 46 yard reception proved to be the difference maker in a 21-14 Longview victory at North Mesquite. Al’Darius Thompson scored with 2:39 to play, and the Stallions then recovered the following onside kick to make it a game, before the Lobo defense stood up. In 2011, 7 different Lobos would contribute to the scoreboard as Longview rolled past Tyler Lee, 45-19, at Rose Stadium. Bivins Caraway finished with 195 yards passing and three passing scores. In 2016, Longview fell before 14-0 after the first quarter at Rockwall Heath’s Wilkerson-Sanders Memorial Stadium before D’Crayvan Polk scored twice with Kendrevian White’s two scores mixed in, in a 35-21 victory over the Hawks.

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.

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 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.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES 10.23.2020 - Longview 49, West Mesquite 24 - Lobo Stadium FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW To open the 2021 season, the Lobos had a chance to end Denton Ryan's 59-game regular season winning streak. Longview failed on the opening week of the year with that task. Last Friday, Longview got a second chance to end a long winning streak, this time the 32-game overall winning streak of the Bryant Hornets. Despite two turnovers and an inconsistent offense, the Lobos finally broke through with ending a long streak as they knocked off the 3-time defending 7A Arkansas State Champions by a 24-21 scoreline. The Lobos, who improved to 3-1 on the season, found themselves trailing right before half and late in the 3rd quarter only to quickly turn things around and grab a 24-14 lead midway through the third quarter. Bryant was able to add a touchdown on the final play of the game. The win for Longview improved them to 18-0 all-time on Homecoming night under head coach John King. The Lobos' last loss on homecoming night in 2003, when the No. 9 ranked Tyler Lee Red Raiders defeated the Lobos 18-14, after trailing 14-3 at halftime. Longview also won their 750th game as a football program, dating back to 1909. They become the 8th program in Texas high school football history to reach that 750 mark. The Lobos now turn to the games that matter, in district play. The Lobos open their 18th season under head coach John King for district play, with a 15-2 record on the opening week of district action. Longview's only losses in week 1 of district play came against Mesquite in 2012 & Mesquite Horn in 2017...both at EH Hanby Stadium. West Mesquite enters district play with a 2-2 record, but easily could be 4-0 on the year. The Wranglers fell to Poteet, 22-19, after leading the Pirates late in the game before a blocked punt turned the tide. The Wranglers also led Keller Timber Creek 28-6 before the Falcons took over the contest in the second half. West Mesquite has not won a district opener since 2017, after losing to Denton Ryan to open district play in 2018 & 2019 and to Longview in 2020. The Lobos return to Mesquite Memorial Stadium, after their previous visit in 2020 that ended their season against Denton Ryan, 27-9. Longview holds a 13-4 all-time record at Mesquite Memorial. Longview's last regular season loss at Mesquite Memorial came in 2010, when the Lobos blew a 14-3 lead in the 4th quarter to North Mesquite losing 24-14.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES First Meeting. FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW 17 consecutive wins. That's what the Lobos can scream from the top of Rose Stadium, as Longview defeated their rivals to the west following a 46-20 over Tyler Legacy. Heading into the contest, many predictions saw the Red Raiders snapping the 19-year streak..and it looked as if it was going to be proven true at the start of the contest. The Red Raiders jumped out to a 10-0 lead thanks to an onside kick recovery to open the game, followed by a Red Raider fumble recovery inside the Lobo 20-yard line. With the way Legacy had scored the first two weeks and Longview's lack of an offense to begin the 2021 season, no one could be faulted for feeling as if they knew how the contest was going to end. This year's Lobos had other ideas. After a touchdown reception from Taylor Tatum, his first as a Lobo, from Jordan Allen, the Longview offense got going. Taylor Tatum rushed in to give Longview the lead, before Joshua Thomas took over at quarterback for the Lobos. With Thomas under center, only one drive ended without the Lobos putting up points, one that saw one of Longview's running back fumble the ball inside the 5-yard line. No doubt the Lobos still have things to work on, such as penalties and turnovers. But overall, it was a huge improvement for this year's group after posting just 21 points through the first two games. The Lobos' 17th win in a row over the Red Raiders is the second longest in school history, second only to their 19-game winning streak over the Marshall. The win also marked Longview's 9th consecutive over Tyler Legacy at Rose Stadium dating back to 2002. Overall, John King improved to 23-1 at Rose Stadium as head coach of Longview. Next up for the Lobos, is a date with a 3-time defending state champion in the Bryant Hornets. The Hornets have won 32 consecutive games dating back to a 34-28 loss at North Little Rock in 2018. In those 32 games, the Hornets have had just one contest settled within one score, a 44-40 victory over Cedar Hill Trinity Christian (out of Texas) last season at Bryant. The 3 and a half hour drive for the Hornets, however, will no doubt be one of the longest drives they've had in recent years (at the very least). For the two programs, it will be the first meeting between them. But they do have at least one connection as the last time Longview faced a team from the state of Arkansas, they faced the North Little Rock Charging Wildcats, a district mate of the Hornets. Each of the last three seasons, Bryant has defeated NLR in the state championship game. Last season's 27-17 final was the closest of those three contests. The Lobos faced NLR back in 2012, a week after losing their starting senior quarterback which forced them to put a sophomore in for the rest of the way in Desmond Chumley. Longview's offense did enough while the defense and special teams brought things home in a 30-14 victory. Friday's contest will be the 6th overall meeting between Longview and the State of Arkansas. The Lobos are 5-0 in the previous match ups. Longview faced off against El Dorado back in 1934 & 1935, winning both, while the Lobos knocked off Arkansas High in dominating fashion in a home and home series back in 1954 & 1955 before the 2012 match up against North Little Rock. The Lobos also return home, where they have won three straight at Lobo Stadium, and 24 of their last 25 contests. Head coach John King is 78-6 all-time at Lobo Stadium since becoming head coach in 2004. Despite their 32-game winning streak, only 9 of those games have been true road contests. This will be their first true road game of the year, after meeting Benton at a neutral field to start the season.

That is what could easily sum up Longview's first two weeks on offense to start the 2021 season. Held to just 21 points total through 4 halves of football, the Lobos found a way to shut out the Marshall Mavericks the second time in third years in route to a 14-0 victory to grab their first win of the year. The 21 points for Longview through 2 games is the least amount of points scored through 8 quarters since Longview scored just 20 points in 1994. None the less, the win boasted Longview's record to 1-1 on the year and notched their 6th consecutive victory over their rivals to the East. It marked their 64th overall victory against the Mavs, and their 20th win in the last 21 seasons. Sophomore Taylor Tatum became the first sophomore to rush for a score since Kaden Meredith tallied two touchdowns against Marshall in the second game of the season 2018. Jalen Hale remains the youngest Lobo to tally a touchdown when he hauled in a reception for a score in the five game of the 2019 season, his freshmen campaign. The Mavericks did force the Lobos to punt seven times in the game, the most for a Longview team since being forced to punt 8 times against Lufkin back in 2011. Next up for Longview is another long time rival in the Tyler Legacy Red Raiders. The Red Raiders come into the contest, for the second straight season, riding high following victories over Lufkin and Tyler High. Spearheaded by their two big backs, Legacy has dominated most of their two games to start the year, despite what the final score against Cujo looks like. For Longview, the Lobos come into the contest having won 16 games in a row over the Red Raiders, the second most in school history only to Longview's 19-game winning streak over the Mavericks that dates back to the 1980s. Overall in the series, it's been one of domination for the Lobos as they lead the series 45-14-2 in the previous 61 meetings. Legacy's most successful period against Longview came between 1998 and 2002, when the Red Raiders pulled off 5 consecutive victories over the Lobos. Longview heads to Tyler having won 8 in a row at Rose Stadium against the Red Raiders. Overall, the Lobos are 20-1 at Rose Stadium under head coach John King, having won the last 7 times they've been there.

The 2021 season for the Longview Lobos opened similarly how the 2020 season opened for them, a crushing, blow out defeat. It was a comedy of errors as the Lobos experienced penalties, fumbles, interceptions and even a blocked punt in their 40-7 opening season loss to the state number one team in the Denton Ryan Raiders. Longview, opening their 112th season of football, suffered the 3rd worst defeat to open a campaign in the history of their program last Saturday afternoon. It was the second quarter, for the second straight season, that did them in. After the Lobos held a 7-6 advantage after one quarter, the Ryan Raiders opened things up and strolled to a 33-7 halftime lead. The two defensive scores for Denton Ryan were the first defensive scores given up by a Lobo team since 2018. It was the first time Longview has given up multiple defensive scores in the same game since 2012 vs Austin Westlake, when they gave up three. Similar to that contest, once the wheels started coming off, they really came off. Multiple times, the Lobos had the ball in scoring position only to fumble it away, including one with the Lobos fumbling on the one yard line. For this week's opponent, things went pretty similarly. Four interceptions led to the demise of the Marshall Mavericks, as they opened their season with a 23-7 defeat at New Caney on Friday night. The Mavericks are coming off a season which saw them miss the post season for the first time since 2012. It was the Mavs' lowest output to open a season since 2016, when Marshall fell 34-7 at Tyler Lee. Marshall was able to muster just 169 total yards on the night. For the two programs, it will be another year meeting on the gridiron. The 111th time, in fact, of meeting on the gridiron and the 89th season in a row. Longview and Marshall first took to the grass field back in 1909, when the two schools battled to a 0-0 tie at Brown Park in Marshall. Since that November 25th day, the Lobos and Mavericks have gone just 8 years without meeting (1913, 1917, 1918, 1920, 1921, 1924, 1925 & 1932). And two of those years (1924 and 1920), the two schools had a game scheduled but were later canceled. The Mavericks controlled the series early on, up until the 1969 season, where they had a 13-game lead. The streak then started with a 17-16 Longview victory at Marshall thanks to Jimmy Hill's 34 yard field goal with 19 seconds remaining. What started was a 19-game winning streak that led all the way up to the 1988 season when the Mavs finally knocked off the Lobos, 28-0 at Lobo Stadium. However, the winning has continued to be heavily in favor of the Lobos despite two 3-game winning streak for the Mavericks. Longview is currently riding a 5-game winning streak over Marshall, and has won 19 of the previous 20 contests. Overall, since that 17-16 win back in 1969, Longview has a 43-9 record over their long time rivals to the East. Since Marshall's last win in 2015, the series has taken an even further turn to dominance for Longview. The Lobos have outscored Marshall 263 to 49 in the last five match ups, 21 of that coming last season. Even dating up to 2008, Longview had never scored 50 points in a game against the Mavs. Since scoring a 50-21 win in 2008, the Lobos now have scored 50 or more points against Marshall in six games including a series high 60 points back in 2018. For Marshall, returning to Lobo Stadium will not be a ideal to start their 2021 season, seeing as the Mavs have not won at Lobo Stadium since a 1998 victory that saw Marshall win 35-28 in double overtime. Since then, 9 consecutive defeats have come their way, with the closet game being in 2006 when the Lobos held off the Mavs, 38-35. The last 5 visits have been particularly rough for Marshall, with Longview winning by a combined score of 228 to 20, with there being three shut outs by the Lobo defense. No doubt, both teams will be looking to get on the right track of things going into Friday's 111th showdown.

In 1993, Waco jumped out to a 17-0 halftime lead before Eric Andrews returned the second half kickoff 95 yards for a score. L’Vendric Fine would run in for two giving Longview a 20-17 win over the Lions at Lobo Stadium.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES 12.26.2020 - Denton Ryan 27, Longview 9 - Mesquite Memorial Stadium FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: The hot, summer months have turned again towards the sights of football season for the 113 year in Longview, Texas. Fresh off a season unlike any other in Lobo football, where most people were just happy to have been able to finish the season period, the Lobos head into the 2021 season with their biggest test to start a season since facing the 2008 Class 5A Division I State Champion Allen Eagles in 2009. Much like those Eagles, the Denton Ryan Raiders steamrolled through their regular season en route to their third state championship in program history. The meeting between Longview and Denton Ryan will be the first time in program history for the Lobos to open a season facing a team that had previously knocked them out of the post season. Last season, Denton Ryan and Longview battled to a 13-6 Ryan halftime lead. The Raiders dominated the second half though, rolling to a 27-9 victory at Mesquite’s Memorial Stadium. The 18 point loss was the largest playoff loss for the Lobos since a 38-10 loss to Austin Westlake in the 2012 playoffs. With the new season, Longview sees the departure of their all-time total and rushing touchdown leader in Kaden Meredith, who finished his Lobo football career with 60 total touchdowns and 57 rushing touchdowns. Stepping into that starting rushing spot, is expected to be sophomore sensation, Taylor Tatum, who already holds an offer from the University of Washington. Joining him on the field, is all-time offer holder at Longview High School in Jalen Hale, who as of this preview, holds 32 offers heading into his junior season. Jalen Hale’s 14 touchdowns in his first two season as a Lobo, already sits 5th all-time in receiving touchdown in Longview history, 9 behind record holder Kamden Perry. The big question for Longview this season, though, is who will be the starting quarterback. Junior to be Jordan Allen returns, but Josh Thomas, a transfer in from Jefferson, has thrown a wrench into the starting spot. Thomas, a senior, holds two offers heading into his first and final campaign as a Lobo. As for the Raiders, departure of senior Bear Alexander to Fort Worth Brewer as highlighted their off season in 2021. Still, the Raiders bring back heavy numbers on a defense that was beyond impressive throughout the 2020 state championship campaign. The Raiders will be breaking in a new quarterback themselves, as Seth Henigan departs for Memphis following his undefeated senior year. Khalon Davis takes over the reigns as the Raiders look to continue their winning ways in 2021. The Raiders head into the 2021 season having won 59 consecutive regular season games, 21 non-district games and 15-overall. Ryan’s last non-district loss came back 2014, a 20-13 home loss to the Rockwall Yellowjackets. The test in December for Longview was a monumental test. The test for the Lobos in August, will be no different. The site is set as Longview and Denton Ryan kickoff their 2021 seasons from Frisco’s Ford Center at the Star.

But a 23 yard touchdown run by Carey Fortson sparked Longview in the third quarter to 28 points and a 28-17 lead midway through the 4th quarter. A Da’Cedric Hunt rush, an unbelievable run by Tyler McCray and an Aaron Johnson run were the scores for the Lobos. Allen pulled to within three points late in the 4th but Longview held on for a thrilling 28-25 victory of open the year. In 2015, Longview and Lufkin met a year after Longview overcame a 28-point deficit to knock the Panthers out by 1-point…and this rivalry game was no different. Malik Jackson got the scoring going for the Pack before Longview’s Michael Ross tallied. Tylan Miller gave the Lobos the lead in the 2nd quarter before a 92-yard punt return from Savon Fields had the game tied at 14 at halftime. Tylan Miller gave the Lobos the lead in the 4th quarter, before Jadrien Bennett pulled in the touchdown to pull Lufkin within 1-point again in the last minute of the game. Deciding to kick the extra point, Longview’s Ameron Dean blocked the extra point attempt to give the Lobos a 21-20 victory.

And although the greatest three year run in program history came to an unexpected early end in 2019, plenty of optimism remains in Longview for the foreseeable future as John King approaches his 17th season at the helm for the Lobos. Solid pieces return for the Longview on both sides of the ball as the Lobos make the move from 6A to 5AD1. It starts in the backfield with SR RB Kaden Meredith (5’9.5 180) who is eyeing Longview rushing records after an all-state performance in 2019. SR FB Markevion Haynes (5’9.5 205) started in Longview’s backfield but battled injuries in 2019. He’s now 100% and ready to go. Meredith and Haynes are going into their third year in Longview’s backfield. Longview rotated a ton at WR in 2019, and the two best return in Sophomore WR Jalen Hale (6’3 175) and SR WR CJ Hopkins (6’0 170). Hale was the first freshman to play varsity football at Longview in nearly 3 decades and is a future major recruit. TE will be solid as usual with SR Austin Pencheon (6’0 200) elevating from TE2 to TE1. SR LG Tavion Sterling (6’1 290) will anchor Longview’s offensive line. Longview’s defensive front seven should once again be a strong point on the entire team as SR DL Joe Jones (6’3 275) is back to anchor the DL. The level behind the DL will once again have plenty of speed and pop with SR LB Laqualon Hale (5’10 205) and SR down safety/strong safety Kybrien Jackson-Jamerson (6’2.5 210) returning for their third varsity season in Longview’s front seven. SR’s Shannon Jackson II (5’8 165) and Tyree Hale (5’9 160) will return to their safety positions in the secondary and SR Antonio Onofre (6’1 190) returns at K. Reinforcements are also on the way from combined 17-3 subvarsity, such as promising sophomore QB Landyn Grant (6’2 180). Some big names may graduate but as usual, Longview will be Longview. SR Longview RB Kaden Meredith is the lone returning all state player in the district. Meredith is a FBS recruit who is eyeing Longview rushing records in 2020. Highland Park Fighting Scots Head Coach: Randy Allen 250-35 21 seasons at Highland Park 2019 result: 11-2 (7-0), 5A D1 Regional Returners: O = 4, D = 4 Returning All State: 0 Returning All District: 9 A huge senior class graduates for Highland Park, a group that helped bring Highland Park two state titles the past three seasons. However, we have seen this story and how it unfolds numerous times over the years with Highland Park under long time, legendary HC Randy Allen. Those wins aren’t disappearing in 2020. First off, in case you were wondering, Highland Park does have another signal caller that will play D1 college football. SR Brayden Schager (6’2 195) is one of the best kept secrets in DFW. 2022 QB Hayden Ferguson (6’3 220) is also on college recruiter radars. So Highland Park is in good hands at the QB position as usual. Good news as they’ll need the skill at the QB position since the skill positions on offense will be inexperienced. What won’t be inexperienced is the offensive line. Highland Park may have the best OL in all of 5A in 2020. Four of five return up front for the Scots in SR LT Jack Leyrer (6’6 275), SR LG Sam Morse (6’1 250), SR C Will Gibson (6’4 280) and SR RT Henry Hagenbuch (6’2 260). There’s a ton of experience among those four seniors up front. On defense, Highland Park has to replace the entire defensive front, but JR DE Jack Curtis (6’4 220) saw significant playing time as a sophomore and is a future major FBS recruit. Behind him at LB is SR Patrick Turner (6’2 220) who also has high recruiting stock going into spring. The Highland Park secondary, much like the OL, brings back a lot of experience. SR DB Sam Session (5’10 165), SR S Walker Cobb (6’1 185) and SR CB Ford Frazar (5’11 160) all return in the secondary. Cobb and Frazar were 1st team all-district players in 2019.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 a whopping 107-2 at home. Most recently Highland Park had the longest active home winning streak at 33 games before Frisco Lone Star snapped it Week 3 of 2019. Highland Park may be losing a ton, and on the surface it appears that way. But when you dive deeper, Highland Park is clearly on the way to another big season. Don’t be fooled; the Scots will be no pushovers in 2020. Prince Dorbah may be graduating from this Highland Park defense, but 2022 Jack Curtis appears to be next man up and already getting FBS attention. Also a stud on the baseball field as well. Sherman Bearcats Head Coach: J.D. Martinez 19-23 (11-13) 4 seasons at Sherman 2019 result: 6-4 (3-3), No Playoffs Returners: O = 5, D = 5 Returning All State: 0 Returning All District: 5 A key week seven loss in Texarkana to Texas High ultimately resulted in Sherman missing out on playoff action in 2019. But there are some bright spots for Bearcat faithful to look forward to in 2020 that could result in a return to the post season. The brightest spot would have to be the Bearcat passing attack where four of five all district players return. It starts with SR QB Tate Bethel (6’0 175) who put up 1,935 passing yards and 23 total TD’s. That was 2nd most passing yardage in district 7-5A behind McKinney North’s Dillon Markiewicz. All of his top targets who were also all district players return in SR WR Sean Husband (5’9 170), SR WR/CB Benji Omayebu (5’9 175) and SR TE/WR Jacoby Hunt (6’3 203). SR RT Matt Parks (6’0 235) is the lone returner up front for the Bearcats. Five starters also return on defense for Sherman. Omayebu and SR Jeff Banks (5’10 165) return to their starting CB spots. SR SS Mathias Coleman (5’11 185) was all district in 2019 and was one of the best defensive players in 7-5A. SR MLB Brandon Bonilla (5’10 215) returns in the middle of the Bearcats’ 3-3 defense. SR DE Donja Orr-Knight (5’10 195) is the lone returner on the defensive line. Sherman will have to address four holes on the OL as well as holes in the defensive front, but everything around those two areas have solid foundation. The Bearcat JV did have a 0-10 year in 2019 but the 9th grade team went 7-2, winning the district title. There were also several key 2022 guys on varsity like WR Elijah Coleman (6’3 170) who caught 3 TD’s as a sophomore and has a lot of potential. Bearcat Stadium is one of the toughest places to play in all of 5A and Sherman is only a year removed from post season play. A playoff appearance for the Bearcats certainly isn’t out of the question in 2020. Special teams, WR, DB....SR ATH Benji Omayebu does it all for Sherman. Maybe one of the best utility players in all of 5AD1. McKinney North Bulldogs Head Coach: Mike Fecci 66-54 (44-31) 11 seasons at McKinney North 2019 result: 10-2 (6-0), 5A D1 Area Returners: O = 4, D = 6 Returning All State: 0 Returning All District: 8 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 district 7-5A and advancing to 5A D1 area round ultimately losing to a good Lancaster team. Big names from a program record breaking offense like RB Manny Fincher, TE Brandon Frazier and QB Dillon Markiewicz, who was 7-5A’s most valuable player, all graduate. All three will be playing D1 football on Saturdays now. Tough players to replace but quality remains on this team. For one thing, McKinney North returns one of the best WR’s in all of 5A. SR WR JJ Henry (6’0 180) was 7-5A co-offensive player of the year as a junior after hauling in 76 receptions for over 1400 yards and 18 total TDs. Henry is breaking every McKinney North receiving record in the book. McKinney North appears to be solid up front with three all-district players back in SR LT Brandon Nelson (6’4 300), SR RT Seth Holmes (6’2 285) and JR RG Seteye Akpabio (6’3 315). Akpabio is one of the best class of 2022 guards in the state. Trench play will be a strength on the Bulldog defense as well as all four defensive linemen return. JR DE Dylan Frazier (6’5 250) was 7-5A’s defensive newcomer of the year and is emerging as one of the top defensive linemen in Texas for class of 2022. If the name sounds familiar, his brother was TE Brandon Frazier who was one of the most highly recruited 2020 TE’s in the nation. SR Ethyn Dennis (6’3 200) returns at the other DE position, a first team all-district selection due to his long frame, athleticism and ability to get into backfields. SR’s Yarmon Evans (5’11 260) and Keyon Davis (6’0 270) return to their positions in the interior defensive line. The other two defensive returners are located in the secondary: JR S Luke Paley (6’2 180), who could also be in the mix at WR, and SR CB Michael Norris (5’11 165). There wasn’t a lot of success for McKinney North’s subvarsity teams as they went a combined 7-12 but Mike Fecci, 7-5A coach of the year, and his Bulldogs will be looking to build off 2019’s success. JJ Henry is as dangerous as they come at the WR position. Henry is breaking McKinney North receiving records on top of breaking defenders ankles. West Mesquite Wranglers Head Coach: Frank Sandoval 0-0 (0-0) 1st season at West Mesquite 2019 result: 2-8 (2-4), No Playoffs Returners: O = 5, D = 9 Returning All State: 0 Returning All District: 4 West Mesquite is cracking in a new head football coach in 2020 after Jeff Neill was reassigned after seven seasons at the helm. MISD ultimately chose Coach Frank Sandoval, and what a great hire that was. Sandoval comes from 4A Mexia where he led them to several playoff appearances the past few years. Before that, he was a defensive assistant under former Cedar Hill HC Joey McGuire. So not only is he bringing a winning attitude to a culture that desperately needs it, he brings championship pedigree. And for Sandoval, he couldn’t have arrived at a better time. West Mesquite returns 14 starters, amongst the highest in the district. 5 of them come on offense, led by JR QB Kevin Jennings (6’0 165) who is a dual threat DFW sleeper and the leader of a talented 2022 class for the Wranglers. The WR depth will be insane, as Jennings completed passes to seven different WR’s in 2019, all of which return. This includes SR WR/S Jakobe Walton (5’11 175) who is one of the best utility players in DFW. The OL will be anchored by SR LT Lenny Medrano (6’2 280), will have to replace four starters up front. Coach Sandoval is a defensive guy, and his Wrangler defense returns a whopping 9 starters. The entire DL returns, led by JR Trevion Mitchell (6’4 235) who could be emerging as a D1 prospect this off-season. All three linebackers return in SR OLB Diego Nino (5’9 200), SR LB Jose Torres (5’9 185) and SR OLB Augustine Pokowa (5’9 180). In the secondary, Jakobe Walton will return to his free safety position. SR SS Brodrick Benton (5’10 180) and SR CB Clivarion Walker (5’10 170) round up the returners in the secondary. Think about this, about 20 players return for West Mesquite who either started or received significant playing time. 7 of them were from the 2022 class. That’s an insane amount of experience returning. The Wranglers always had the horses but a lot for West Mesquite depended on who Mesquite ISD would hire as their next head coach. They hit a homerun with Coach Sandoval. Jakobe Walton is another strong utility player in this district. He's a focal point on both sides of the ball for West Mesquite and has already reported several D1 offers. John Tyler Lions Head Coach: Ricklan Holmes 69-31 (40-10) 8 seasons at John Tyler 2019 result: 3-8 (3-3), 5A D1 Bi-District Returners: O = 6, D = 5 Returning All State: 0 Returning All District: 4 The worst season in Coach Ricklan Holmes tenure as John Tyler’s HC came in 2019. The Lions turned in a 3-8 season and although JT squeezed into the postseason, it was arguably the worst season for the program since 2007. CUJO will have to rely on experience and pieces from a talented but young 2023 group to push them in the right direction in 2020. Experience in particular, where JT returns 11 starters. Most of which resides on the offensive side of the ball. JT has a pair of runners returning who received significant playing time in SR Kameron Medlock (5’8 160) and JR Jakyron Lacy (6’0 195). JT may have to lean on the running game so look for those two to share carries for JT in 2020. Up front is where JT may be at peak strength. The Lions return nearly the entire OL with JR LG Cornelius Hartsfield, C LeTavion Erwin, JR RG Kadarius Tave and SR RT Ashton Williams returning. JR WR Robert Draper returns outwide. On defense, JT returns two on the defensive line in SR DL Preston Johnson and SR DL LaTravion Hawkins who turned in a 1st team all-district performance in 2020. The CUJO secondary is looking promising. SR CB Keelan Erwin had an all-district performance in 2020. Both safety positions return in SR S Travion Ates and rising sophomore S/WR Xavier Tatum. The largest area of concern on the entire team would have to be at the LB level where JT will replace all four starters. They will look to a subvarsity that went combined 11-9 for replacements. JT is a program of rich tradition and high expectations and the ceiling of John Tyler’s season in 2020 will depend a lot on the QB situation which appears to be in the air going into the spring. Kitan Crawford may be graduating but 2023 Montrell Wade has been accumulating offers since he first stepped on JT's campus. Whether WR or CB look for Wade to be utilized on both sides of the ball for CUJO. Wylie East Raiders Head Coach: Mike Dormady 3-17 (0-12) 2 seasons at Wylie East 2019 result: 2-8 (0-6), No Playoffs Returners: O = 8, D = 5 Returning All State: 0 Returning All District: 1 The past two seasons have been fairly rough for the Wylie East football program. And not just on the varsity level. The Raider 9th grade went 2-6 while the JV went 3-6-1 in 2019. That’s a tough pill to swallow. On a positive note, the program returns the highest number of offensive starters in the district. SR QB Cade Adamson (5’11 170) returns to lead the Raider offense. Almost all of his targets return in JR Josh Hollingsworth (5’10 170) and a pair of 2023 wideouts in CJ Jackson and TJ Washington (5’10 170). Washington is the lone returner on the team that landed on the all-district list. At RB, SR Bam Johnson (5’8 180) also returns and could have a breakout year behind an offensive front that returns SR LG Orlando Melchor, SR RG Frank Moslener and SR RT Javan Lopez (5’11 255). There are more holes to fill on defense but experience returns in the interior defensive line in SR’s Reggie Brooks (6’3 295) and William Schulmeistrat (6’3 260). GilbertVilla returns at LB after seeing a ton of time as a sophomore. SS Caden Roeschen (5’8 165) also saw a ton of time as a sophomore while SR Cade Dorethy returns at his CB spot. Wylie East has yet to win a district game under HC Mike Dormady. It’ll be very tough to end the drought in 2020, but Wylie East is a program that isn’t too far off from 9 and 10 win seasons. A new year awaits and anything is possible. It's not often that you see freshmen land on the all district team, but that's what 2023 WR/QB TJ Washington accomplished in 2019. He'll be a very important player for East in 2020 and projects to be a FBS recruit for the 2023 cycle.

The two schools have never played on December 26th. LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES First Meeting. FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: #3 in the state. 10-0 record. Scored 80 points in four contests. Averaging over 60 points a game. Longview came into Mesquite Memorial Stadium in the Class 5A Division I Area round knowing that the Lancaster Tigers were every bit as good as their record and stats suggested. Slight underdogs, the game looked to be an uphill climb right off the bat, as the Tigers ran for a 75 yard touchdown on the first place from scrimmage. Thankfully for the Lobos, the game didn't end there. After back and forth punches, the Lobos ran off 42 consecutive points to take full control of their game on the way to a dominating 56-20 victory. The win avenged last season's Area Round loss to Dallas Jesuit for the Lobos, while the Tigers head out of the Area round for the second time in the last three seasons. Kaden Meredith had two touchdowns in the win, to push his season total to 27 total and 26 rushing scores. Both are tied for second all-time in Longview single season history, one shy of the school record. Jalen Hale picked up two touchdowns in the win as well, pushing his season total to 10 receiving scores. Hale became the 5th Lobo receiver to tally at least 10 receiving touchdowns in a single season. His 13 receiving scores in his two years on varsity sits tied for 5th all-time in Lobo history. He is just a sophomore. With the win over the #3 team in the state, the Lobos improve to 4-0 under John King as head coach against the third ranked team. Waiting for them in the third round of the playoffs, is another ranked squad. One the Lobos have no history with. The No. 1 ranked Denton Ryan Raiders. The Raiders have steamrolled most of their opponents this season, carrying the No. 1 ranking the entire season. Denton Ryan reached the Division I Region II Semi-Finals with a dominating victory over the College Station Cougars, a game that saw the Raiders lead 52-7 before the Cougars added some fourth quarter scores late. The Lobos and Raiders meet for the first time at Mesquite Memorial Stadium. Last Friday's victory over Lancaster was Longview's first playoff victory at Memorial since a 2001 win over Dallas Kimball. Overall, Longview is 9-3 at the stadium with the last loss coming in 2010 to North Mesquite which ended a 36-game district winning streak that snapped seven seasons. While Longview and Denton Ryan have never met on the football field, the Lobos have met a Denton ISD school four times in their history. Longview is 3-1 all-time against Denton ISD, with the Lobos meeting Denton High back in 1950 in a 41-0 win and meeting Denton Guyer three consecutive seasons in the State Semi-Finals (twice in 4A and once in 5A). The last meeting came in 2010, when the Lobos jumped out to a 17-0 lead before the Wildcats came rushing back. Longview held a 27-21 lead with under a minute to go before Guyer blocked a punt and on the next play scored the winning touchdown in a 28-27 Wildcat victory. The Lobos have met the state's top ranked team five times under John King. The Lobos are 1-4 in those games, with the win coming in 2009 over Allen. Being an underdog isn't common for Longview, but it is something that..in the past...has brought out the best in Longview. It will be a huge task for the Lobos to walk out of Memorial with a win this week, but one thing you won't see is Longview back down from a challenge.

The Lobos have a 3-2 lead when the game is played at a neutral location. The Lobos have a 19-15-3 lead when the game is played at Longview. The Panthers have a 20-19-1 lead when the game is played at Lufkin. Longview has won the last four meetings with the Panthers.

For the first time since 2005, the Longview Lobos and the Lufkin Panthers were not set to face off in the 2020 season. While the teams had agreed to a non-district series prior to realignment, Lufkin being paced in a 9-team district ruined the hope for a game this season. Until, every thing fell exactly the way it needed to so that the two squads could meet for the 84th time. The two squads will face off for the 11th time in the post season, and for the 4th time in the post season in the last 7 seasons. The only season, in the last 7, that the two schools didn't meet when they were in the same class was in 2016. The Lobos have won all three of the previous playoff meetings in those last 7 seasons, including a 28-point comeback in 2014. The last playoff meeting came in 2017, when the two teams traded touchdowns back and forth the entire second half. Before Kamden Perry hauled in a touchdown pass from Haynes King with under a minute to go to bring home the 33-32 victory in the Class 6A Division II State Quarterfinals. The Lobos roll into their bi-district contest with Lufkin on a two-game winning streak that saw the Lobos outscore their opponents 113-24. Their latest victory came over the Tyler Lions, 58-14. The win for Longview was the largest margin of victory in their 97-game series with the Lions, and the 58 points was the first time the Lobos had ever scored 50 or more on Tyler High. Kaden Meredith's three touchdown gave him 55 for his career, tying the school record for most touchdowns in a career. Meredith was pulled after the first quarter, when Longview led 35-0. Longview is entering the playoffs for the 46th time in their history, and the 20th consecutive season dating back to 2001. The Lufkin Panthers clinched their 23rd consecutive playoff berth, dating back to the 1998 season, with their second best offensive performance of the season in a 56-13 victory over Waller. As Longview has dominated their last two opponents, the Panthers have rolled over their last two to the tune of a 114-13 scoreline. The Panthers were sitting at 3-4 on the season following their loss to College Station (45-21). After a forfeit win vs Cleveland, the Panthers saved their season with back to back wins over Conroe Caney Creek and Waller. Lufkin's 6 wins on the season are the fewest for the Pack since 2014, when the Panthers finished 6-5 following a 43-42 loss to Longview in the first round. Lufkin heads to Lobo Stadium for their 23rd all-time visit. Longview has won 7 in a row over the Panthers at Lobo Stadium, dating back to a 2003 14-0 loss to then #5 Lufkin. Overall, Longview has won 4 in a row over their rivals to the South. And following an 11-game winning streak by Lufkin, Longview has retaken control of the series, winning 12 of the last 16 meetings. The last three contests, however, have all finished as one score games. Last season, Longview rolled into Abe Martin Stadium and grabbed a 24-21 victory over the Panthers for just the second time since 1997. The two teams have faced off 10 times overall in the post season, with Longview winning 6 of the 10. The first playoff meeting came back in 1936, when Lufkin knocked off Longview 12-0 in the old Lobo Stadium. Longview got revenge the next season though with a 19-0 victory at Panther Stadium on their way to the 1937 1A State Title. The two teams wouldn't meet again until 1940, when the Lobos scored two 4th quarter tallies to knock off the Panthers 19-12 at Lobo Stadium. In 1942, Lufkin hosted Longview and ran the Lobos out of the stadium in a 33-0 beat down. In 1947, the Lobos were held to just 52 yards on the day to prove why they were massive underdogs. But it didn't matter as an extra point made all the difference in a 7-6 victory over the Panthers at old Lobo Stadium. The two teams wouldn't meet in post season play again until 2002, when they would meet for the third time that season. At an overcapacity Rose Stadium, Lufkin kicked a field goal in the dying seconds of the game to knock off Longview, 24-21, in the 5A Division II State Quarterfinal. Lufkin would again knock Longview off in 2004, before 27,000+ at Homer Bryce Stadium in Nacogdoches. Longview jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead in the second quarter, and led 21-17 heading into the 4th quarter. But Lufkin's Jovorski Lane was too much as the Panther won 31-21 in the 5A Division II Regional round meeting. Longview and Lufkin would meet at Rose Stadium again in 2014, when the Lobos knocked off Lufkin after coming from 28-point down and completing a two-point conversion with under 40 seconds to go in a 43-42 Lobo win. The two teams would have a rematch in 2015 at Rose, once again, where Longview rolled out with a strong second half in a 31-10 victory. And in 2017, Longview would advance to the Class 6A Division II State Semi-Final after Kamden Perry's leaping touchdown to knock the Panthers out by a 33-32 scoreline.

Longview trailed 12-6 at halftime before Lebus scored the winning tally in the fourth quarter from three yards out. In 2010, Longview grabbed a 17-0 halftime lead over Denton Guyer before the unthinkable happened. Despite still leading 27-21, and a chance to run the clock out, the Lobos still snapped the ball with 8/9/10 seconds left on the play clock. The Wildcats forced a fourth down with 17 seconds remaining and proceeded to block the punt. Quint Gardener hauled in a 15 yard passing score on the next play, and with the extra point, Denton Guyer would avenged their past two losses to Longview with a 28-27 win over the Lobos in the Class 5A Division II State Semi-Finals.

Kincaide Stadium FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: Kaden Meredith, Markevion Haynes and Jalen Hale. The three headed monster has led the way for the Lobos all season long, and Friday night's match up with arch rival Lufkin was no different. Behind an impressive defense, the three Lobos rolled all over the Lufkin Panthers to the tune of 41-5. The 36 point victory was the largest margin of victory for Longview since 1976. The win gave Longview their first 5-game winning streak over Lufkin since 1989-1993. Lufkin continues to be winless in Lobo Stadium, dating back to the 2003 season. With three touchdowns on Friday night, Kaden Meredith set the new school record for touchdowns in a career, currently standing at 58. Meredith's three rushing scores also passed Fred Talley's school record for rushing scores in a career. Meredith now has 55 rushing tallies since 2018. Now the real gauntlet begins for the Lobos. Longview heads to Mesquite to take on the Lancaster Tigers, the third ranked team in the state at the end of the regular season. The Tigers have been rolling all season long. Lancaster, 10-0 for the first time in school history, has scored 587 points in 9 actual games played. Lancaster had one win by forfeit. More impressively, the Tigers have given up just 50 points all season long. Lancaster has topped 80 points in four games and recorded a shut out in three. For Longview, coming into this year's Area round game, the Lobos are looking to avenge last season's upset loss to Dallas Jesuit in the same round. The Rangers ended Longview's 27-game winning streak in that loss, 27-25. On Lancaster's side of things, the Tigers are looking to justify their status among the elite teams in Class 5A Division I. Last year, the Tigers were able to make it to the state quarterfinals before falling to Frisco Lone Star, 38-20. Longview and Lancaster have met once previously, also in the Area round. Back in 2008, the Lobos rushed for 372 yards which led the way to a 49-22 victory at Kincaide Stadium. One of the biggest things to note from that meeting was Longview setting a school record with a 99-yard interception return for a score in the fourth quarter of the game. Alonte Darden had that pick six. Of course, for Longview, that game was apart of a run that ended with the Lobos returning to the State Championship game for the first time in 11 years. Longview will be returning to Mesquite Memorial Stadium for the first time since 2016, when the Lobos knocked off North Mesquite, 49-35. The Lobos are 8-3 all-time at Mesquite Memorial Stadium, but the Lobos hold a 1-2 record in post season games at the stadium. The last time Longview visited Mesquite Memorial Stadium in the post season it turned out to be one of the darkest days in Lobo playoff history. Longview, in 2005, was ranked 3rd in the Class 5A AP poll to end the regular season and headed to Mesquite to take on 6-4 South Garland in the bi-district round. The game turned out to be a huge defensive battle until South Garland took a 14-13 lead with half a quarter to play. Longview would drive down deep inside Colonel territory, only to miss a 21-yard field goal with under 30 seconds to play and South Garland would hold on for their massive upset. Longview has lost in the Bi-District round just once since that day, going 14-1 in bi-district games with the only loss being on another missed field goal at Beaumont West Brook in 2016. It will be a slobber knocker of a game with both teams looking to advance to the Regional Semi-Finals.

The Lobos rushed for 314 yards on the day, holding the Tigers to 156 total yards.

Three weeks of frustration following a 5 point loss to end a 20-game district winning streak and 20-game home winning streak. After one series, the Lobos let out all three weeks on the incoming McKinney North Bulldogs to the tune of 55-10. Longview's Kaden Meredith led the way, once again, with a near 200-yard rushing day performance and four touchdowns. The win clinched a playoff berth for the 20th consecutive season for the Lobos, who will look to go into the 5A Division I post season as the district's number two seed with a win this week. Meredith's four touchdowns pushes him within two school records that have stood for over 20 years. Meredith is three touchdowns away from tying Fred Talley's 55 career touchdowns, and four rushing scores away from tying Talley's 53 career rushing tallies, set back in 1998. Standing in Longview's way of potential school records is their long time rivals, the Tyler Lions. The Lions have struggle this season, to the tune of a 2-6 season. Tyler's 2 wins are the fewest in a season for the program since the Lions finished 1-9 in 2007. That season, the Lobos and Lions met and Longview struggled all night to the tune of a 10-6 victory. For the two teams, they are confirmed going in opposite directions. The Lobos have clinched a playoff berth, while the Lions will miss the post season for the second time in the last four seasons. The Lions are also assured a losing record regardless of the outcome for the second consecutive season, the first time that's happened since 2006/2007. Last season, Cujo was able to squeak into the post season, only to lose to 40-21 at College Station. Longview's win against McKinney North guaranteed the Lobos a 20th consecutive winning season. The Lobos and Lions will head into Friday's game meeting for the 97th time. While this season won't decide anything other than seeding for the Lobos, the two programs have previously met 18 times for a district crown, the last coming in 2016 when the Lions knocked off Longview 38-24. Last season's victory for the Lobos marked the 50th over the Lions, only the second time the Lobos have registered 50 or more wins against a single opponent. Longview comes into Rose Stadium riding a three-game winning streak over their rivals to the west. The longest winning streak in the rivalry is a 9-game winning streak by the Lobos from 2001 to 2007. Tyler's longest winning streak over the Lobos is four games, that has occurred three separate times. The two teams first met back in 1912, when Longview knocked off Tyler, 13-7, in Longview. The two programs were first set to meet in 1910 in a neutral site contest in Henderson, but the game was later canceled. Despite Tyler's more recent success against the Lobos, Longview is still 14-3 against the Lions in the last 17 meetings. Dating back to 1967, the Lobos have taken control of the series with a 35-15 record against the Lions. More impressively for Longview, the Lobos have not lose to Tyler High at Rose Stadium since 2000, riding an 8-game winning streak in the Rose City against the Lions. No doubt Tyler will be looking to head into the off season with a huge upset while Longview will be looking to set a tone early as the two old programs meet once again.

In 1941, Longview defeated Gladewater at Bear Stadium, 13-0. In 1947, Bobby Harris rushed in from 6 yards out in the first quarter before Jimmy Pakenham scored the game winning touchdown with a four yard score in the second quarter as the Lobos knocked off Gladewater, 13-7, in Bear Stadium. In 1952, despite leading just 20-7 at halftime, the Mavericks exploded for 38 unanswered points in the second half in route to a 58-7 win over the Lobos at Lobo Stadium. The loss remains the second largest loss at home for the Lobos. In 2004, before a crowd of over 27,000, Longview met arch rival Lufkin at Homer Bryce Stadium. Despite jumping out to a 14-0 lead, Longview saw their lead dwindle throughout the night. Lufkin trailed 21-17 heading into the 4th quarter before two Jorvorski Lane touchdowns helped the Panthers escape Nacogdoches with a 31-21 win to move onto the Region II Final. Longview turned the ball over five times on the day. In 2010, LaDarrin Robertson tallied twice to lead the Lobos to a 24-0 win over Tomball at Floyd Casey Stadium in Waco.

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.

FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW Longview headed into Lufkin's Abe Martin Stadium fresh off back to back victories against two programs the Lobos have dominated for the better part of two decades. They were set to face off against the West Brook Bruins, a team looking for revenge from the 2018 6A Division II State Championship game that saw the Lobos escape with a one point victory. The situation was pretty similar to the first game of the season against the Temple Wildcats, who were also looking for revenge following a post season loss to the Lobos. Unlike that first game, Longview showed up from the get go, behind the passing of Jordan Allen, the receiving of Jalen Hale and the senior leadership of Kaden Meredith. With a stifling second half defense to accompany their potent offense on the ground, the Lobos rolled past the 6A Bruins with a 51-28 victory. It was a game that these young Lobos really needed a statement in and they lived up to the billing controlling the game throughout despite the one score halftime lead. With the win, the Lobos have rebounded for three consecutive victories after their season opening loss and head into district play feeling much better about themselves than they were to start the 2020 season. Longview also won their second consecutive game at Abe Martin Stadium for the first time since 1991-1993. A feat even some of Longview's best teams have not been able to replicate. The Lobos, still rotating quarterbacks, has seen Jordan Allen find a rhythm with sophomore phenom Jalen Hale, as the sophomore now has five touchdowns on the season, one of the most by a sophomore receiver in school history. Kaden Meredith's five touchdown day saw him reach 3,000 total yards as a Lobo on top of reaching top 5 in touchdowns scored in total and rushing scores in Lobo history. As the Lobos end non-district play, the unfamiliar begins as the Lobos will face three new schools in district play, along with one team they haven't met in 44 seasons and another they haven't met in 34 seasons. First up on the new docket, is the West Mesquite Wranglers. The Lobos and Wranglers meet for the first time in completely different positions as programs as you could be. The Wranglers have failed to make the post season every year since 2016, with their deepest run coming in 2007 when the Wranglers fell 49-6 in the State Semi-Finals to Highland Park. West Mesquite enters district play with a 0-4 record, a 6-game losing streak overall and with just two wins their last 14 games overall. The Lobos, however, enter district play having won 40 of their last 43 overall ball games. The Lobos start 5A Division I play with John King holding a 90-6 overall district record since becoming head coach at Longview back in 2004. Longview has won 18 overall district contests, having not lost a district game since a 2017 game at Mesquite Horn. The Lobos also have won 20 consecutive ball games at Lobo Stadium. Under Jonh King, Longview is 14-2 in district openers, with the only losses coming in 2012 and in 2017. For Longview, this will be the fourth Mesquite ISD program they have faced out of the five Mesquite ISD schools. The Lobos are 37-7 overall against Mesquite ISD. On top of that, the Lobos have not lost to a Mesquite ISD program at Lobo Stadium since 1988. Longview is 19-2 against Mesquite ISD at Lobo Stadium, with both losses coming to North Mesquite.

In 1925, Longview knocked off Carthage, 13-0, at Fair Park in Longview. In 1931, Longview and Jefferson battled to a 0-0 tie at Fair Park in Longview. In 1936, the Lobos knocked off Texas High, 26-0, at Lobo Stadium. In 1942, J.T. Jeffress rushed in from two yards out in the first quarter, before Robert Crowley and Ken Abney added third quarter scores in a 21-0 Lobo win at Kilgore. In 1964, Longview jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to David Reese and Glen Cobb touchdowns. But the Rebels battled back, and two 4th quarter touchdowns sealed the Tyler Lee victory at Longview, 22-14. In 1981, Tracey Holmes rushed for a 57-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter with 7 minutes to go and the Tiger defense held strong, as Texas High knocked of Longview, 14-11, at Lobo Stadium. Jessie Hunter scored the only Lobo touchdown on the night. In 1987, Marshall grabbed a 17-7 lead in the second quarter thanks to two Odell Beckham scores, but Longview’s Mike Bobo would take over the game with three straight scores as Longview defeated Marshall, 34-22, at Lobo Stadium. Longview rushed for 378 yards on the night. In 1992, Chad Daniels started the scoring for Longview with a 6 yard reception in the second quarter and that would snowball on the Red Raiders as the Lobos rolled over Tyler Lee, 42-14, at Rose Stadium. Longview racked up 482 yards on the ground, holding the Red Raiders to 53. In 2009, Carey Fortson opened the contest with a 98-yard kickoff return and that was just a preview of the night. The Lobos would roll all over Hallsville at Bobcat Stadium, 45-0. The Bobcats were held to 94 total yards, while 7 different Lobos would tally. In 2015, in a downpour at Sam Parker Field, 8 different Lobos would score, including two fumble return touchdowns as Longview rolled Mount Pleasant, 51-0. The Tigers were held to 53 yards on the night.

LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES 12.22.2018 - Longview 35, Beaumont West Brook 34 - AT&T Stadium 11.17.2017 - Longview 42, Beaumont West Brook 21 - Lobo Stadium 11.11.2016 - Beaumont West Brook 34, Longview 33 - C.A. Thomas Multipurpose Center FULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW Anytime you can defeat a team, no matter who it is, 16-games in a row..it is impressive. Longview held serve at home after a back and forth first half, to do just that. The Lobos used a 21-0 second half to pull away from the improved Legacy Red Raiders and stormed to a 37-14 victory. Longview's defense won the day, which many expected would have to happen if the Lobos were going to have success this season. With the win, the Lobos won their 16th in a row over the Red Raiders, the second longest such winning streak over a single opponent in school history. The Red Raiders last defeated Longview back in 2003. This was, however, the closest Legacy had been entering the fourth quarter (two scores) since the 2010 contest. With the win, the Lobos have secured back to back wins after opening the 2020 season the disappointing blow out loss to Temple. Longview now turns their attention to their non-district contest of the season as they take on a familiar foe in Beaumont West Brook. The Bruins, fresh of a 2019 season that ended disappointingly in the second round much like it did for the Lobos, come into Lufkin's Abe Martin Stadium with a 1-1 record. The Bruins opened the year with a 66-63 loss to Tomball Memorial before knocking off private school Bellaire Episcopal 56-10 last week. The Bruins no doubt will be looking for some momentum as they head into an extremely tough district next week, opening with Galena Park North Shore. This will be the fourth meeting between the two schools, and the first non-district meeting. Longview and Beaumont West Brook opened their histories against one another with a bi-district contest in 2016, when the Lobos had to make the trip down to Beaumont despite being tied for the No. 1 seed in Division II. Longview led most of the way, until a fumble inside the 15 yard line in the dying minutes of the game gave the Bruins a chance, trailing by six. West Brook went the distance and the extra point put the Bruins on top for good. Longview's Chris Kessler missed a long field goal to end the game as West Brook held on. Longview, the next year, would welcome the Bruins to Lobo Stadium and after a tight first half, the Lobos would run away with things in route to a 42-21 win. In the last meeting, Longview and West Brook full cemented themselves in history meeting in the Class 6A Division II State Championship in 2018, that saw the third largest crowd to ever watch a Texas High School Football game cram into AT&T Stadium. This time, it was West Brook who led nearly the entire way until Longview exploded in the fourth quarter to take the lead by one point. The Lobos would seal the contest with a fumble in the final four minutes, and the celebration of 81-years of frustration would erupt inside the stadium that Jerry built. It won't be quite that feeling on Thursday night, as the Lobos and Bruins meet in a socially distant Abe Martin Stadium in Lufkin. But plenty of fireworks are expected in this great match up for both teams to end non-district play.

And a most enjoyable if you're a Longview Lobo. The Lobos, coming off one of the worst season opening losses in school history, traveled to Marshall for a week 2 clash against their rivals to the East. And in the 110th meeting between the Lobos and Mavericks, Longview made quick work of Marshall jumping out to a 43-7 halftime lead. The Lobos ultimately won the 110th clash by a 53-21 scoreline, the fifth consecutive win for the Lobos over the Mavs. Longview has won 19 of their last 20 contests against Marshall, helping them to even their season record at 1-1. The Lobos now turn their attention to another long time rival, a team going by a new name in the Tyler Legacy Red Raiders. Legacy opened the 2020 season in resounding fashion, dominating Lufkin and racking up 70 points in the process. Last week, the Red Raiders faced off against cross town rival Tyler and while they struggled in the first half, Legacy still walked out with a 40-28 win. The Red Raiders come into Longview looking for their second consecutive season to start 3-0. The Lobos and Red Raiders will be meeting for the 61st time on Friday night. The Lobos, who have won 15 in a row over their western rivals, lead the series 44-14-2. The 44 wins over a single opponent is the third most in school history for the Lobos. Longview's series against Legacy dates back to 1960, when the Red Raiders made the move to the state's top classification following two years in Class 3A. After the two teams traded three game winning streaks against one another for the first 12 games, the Lobos took complete control of the series. Since 1972, Longview holds a 38-8-2 record against the Red Raiders. That mark is highlighted even more when realizing the Red Raiders held a 5-game winning streak over the Lobos in the late 90s/00s. The Lobos have won 16 of their last 17 meetings against the Legacy Red Raiders, with the lone loss being a 18-14 loss at Lobo Stadium where the #9 ranked Red Raiders overcame a 14-3 halftime deficit to pull out the win. In Longview's 15-game winning streak, the Lobos and Red Raiders have only competed in two contests that were decided by a score or less. In the last 7 meetings, the Lobos have scored 45 or more points in all contests. Last year's 49 points was the lowest offensive output by the Lobos against legacy since scoring 45 in 2011, and ended a streak of 5 consecutive games where the Lobos scored at least 50 points against the Red Raiders. To continue the winning streak, Longview will have to rely on their run defense which has allowed just 94 total yards through two games. The Red Raiders rely on their two headed monster of Jamarion Miller and Bryson Donnell to control the game. It was an opportunistic defense for the Lobos against the Mavs, who produced three turnovers. The 61st meeting between Longview and Legacy looks to be the close contest in recent memory between the schools as the two continue non-district play.

While it wasn't fancy, and mistakes were made, Longview still grabbed the lead against a Temple team looking for revenge from their 2019 playoff loss to the Lobos. Then came the third quarter. Anything and everything that could go wrong for Longview did and a snowball effect led to the third worst loss to opening a season in school history. The Wildcats took advantage of four turnovers, seventeen penalties, and 142 penalty yards and walked away with a 40-13 win over the Lobos. It was a disaster of a second half, the third worst in school history in fact. The loss ended a 26-game regular season winning streak, a 13-game non-district winning streak and handed Longview's it's first 2-game losing streak since the 2015-2016 season. Now Longview heads to arch rival Marshall for the 111th meeting between the two programs, the third oldest rivalry in the state of Texas. The Mavericks, season opening winners over New Caney, look to defend their home turf against Longview and rekindle the magic that say the Mavs upset the Lobos back in 2015. That 2015 win, also at Maverick Stadium, is the last time Marshall has knocked off Longview and the only time since the 2000 season. Since that 2015 loss, the Lobos have won 4-in-a-row over Marshall, including two at Maverick Stadium. Marshall has scored just 28 points in those four losses, while the Lobos have tallied 210 points. Overall, Longview has won 18 of the last 19 meetings against Marshall. Longview will head into Maverick Stadium looking to avoid their first two-game losing streak, in the same season, for the first time since 2014 when the Lobos lost to Lufkin (44-14) and John Tyler (41-25) to open the season. That was also the last time Longview has lost three consecutive games. In fact, it's so rare for the Lobos to open a season winless 2 games in that it's only happened twice since 1964 (1971 went 0-1-1 to open the season, 2014 went 0-2). Marshall, on the other hand, is looking for it's first 2-0 start since 2015, and only it's third 2-0 start since the 2010 season. Marshall will also be looking to do something it has not done in quite some time. The Mavericks have not beaten Longview in non-district play since 1931. Since their 1931 win, the Lobos are a perfect 15-0 against the Mavericks in non-district contests. Tonight will mark the 111th meeting betweeen the two schools, which sits at third for most games played in a series in the state of Texas. Marshall was extremely successful early on in the series, winning 18 of the first 22 meetings (two of the contests finished in ties). After a year of not playing each other in 1932, the Lobos and Mavericks have seen each other every year since on the gridiron for the past 88 seasons as of this year. Since that 1933 meeting, Longview has defeated Marshall more often than not, to the tune of 60-24-3. Since the 1969 season, the Lobos have completedly owned the series by a 42-9 record. Longview will be looking to continue that in a stadium that it has quite a bit of success in over the years. Since Longview's first visit to the new Maverick Stadium, Longview has aquired a 15-5 record there, including an 8-1 record in their last 9 visits. It'll be a show of two teams in different spots on Friday night, with Longview look to regain some momentum and confidence following a shocking defeat to open the season, while Marshall will be looking to continue their momentum and make some history along the way in their second home game of the season.
