Longview Lobos O-Line

Recommended Posts

I keep reading about how this will be Coach Kings biggest offensive line he has had while at Longview. I have two questions what is the "projected" starting offensive line for Longview. Secondly, wasn't the O Line with Trent Williams pretty big as well?

Quick hits: Lobos looking for perfect combination entering season opener By Hayden Henry [email protected] Longview News-Journal

The bus rolls to the big show on Friday.

But for the Lobos, there are still some things to get squared away before they open the season against Coppell at the Tom Landry Classic in Allen’s Eagle Stadium.

Fresh off the their final tune-up of the preseason on Friday, head coach John King said Monday’s practice gave them a chance to look at some of the mistakes from Friday and a chance to find the perfect mix of players on the field.

“We started off pretty good but got a little sloppy towards the end, it’s the first day of school and there’s always stuff going on with that,” King said. “We worked on schemes, working on installing some things and we moved some people around on defense.

“We’re just trying to get the best 11 players on the field.”

King said Tuesday’s practice is a big one for the Lobos, who will open the season against a Coppell team that handed Longview a 41-8 thumping to open the 2012 season.

“They know what’s coming on Friday,” he said. “That’s a unique thing about our kids is that they never get too high and they never get too low. It doesn’t matter who they’re playing, they practice and prepare each week. We don’t play the game during the week, we prepare during the week and more times than not, we show up ready to play.

“It’s a process each day and hopefully tomorrow will be better after all the newness of the school year wears off.”

Defense will be a big focus over the next few days after Friday’s scrimmage with John Tyler left some question marks about stopping the running game.

“Stopping the run, that’s been a big focus,” King said. “We changed up some personnel and focused on being more physical all over the field but especially on defense. We can’t just beat the tar out of each other every day but we’re going to work on playing physical.”

Roderick Alexander, Trey Lanier, Dillion Winn and Decord Flanagan anchored the defensive front in Monday’s practice against the scout-team offense. Travin Howard, Jaylon Jackson, Kadarrius Dixon, Laurent Johnson, Chris Coby, Stephan Maxey and Jhavaurian Moore rounded out the Lobo defense.

Offensively, quarterback Dezmond Chumley looked sharp Monday, carrying over from a 10-for-12, 122-yard night against John Tyler.

Broderick Washington, Vernon Hutchinson, Landry Pepper, Tony Clark and Trevon Lloyd were the offensive front.

“Today is a big day this week as far as lining everything out,” King said. “I feel like the changes we’ve made and what we’ll see today and the things that we’re doing will work out for us.”

This is the first time under king that I can remember every o lineman being 250+. Yes we had Trenton Williams and Gordon Booker one year and those guys were huge and very good but outside of them didnt have much size. We always have one or 2 big guys but never 5 like this year. usually have a couple anywhere from 200-220 in there somewhere.

King said in the paper that he rotated two different sets of olinemen in the scrimmage with JT and was pleased with all the guys. That tells me we are not only big on the Oline but very deep and that is a good thing and something we usually dont have! Someone may have beat him out for the starting spot.

I distinctly remember Andrews leaving the field limping pretty noticeably during one of the early segments of

the J.T. scrimmage.

 

Of course, if that is the case then King can not discuss his or any other players injury with the media due to HIPPA guidelines.

 

Hopefully, Andrews situtaion is only a week-to-week thing.

 

Time will tell.
