The Battle of Longview resumes in the 14th edition of Longview and Pine Tree on Homecoming and Green Out night for the Lobos. Following a tough 22-15 set back to Shreveport Byrd, the Lobos return home for the first time in a month. Longview’s loss was it’s first inside Independence Stadium since a 19-15 loss to #1 West Monroe. Awaiting them is their cross town rival Pine Tree, who has already equaled their entire win total from last season. The Pirates opened the season with a 37-9 victory over Jacksonville, their first over the Tribe since 2007. The Lobos and Pirates will meet for just the fourth time since 1987, and at Lobo Stadium for the first time since 1986. Pine Tree’s last visit to Lobo Stadium was a disaster for Longview, one that some claimed as the biggest upset in the history of PT Football. Tim Greaves 25-yard field goal in the 3rd quarter gave the Pirates the 10-7 lead and they held on for the 10-9 victory. Pine Tree’s only other victory over Longview (in 1982, 22-20) also came inside Lobo Stadium. Longview hasn’t defeated Pine Tree at home since 1984. The Lobos will definitely have many distractions during the pre-game, with both Homecoming and Green Out taking place. However, those distractions haven’t paid off for the opponents in years past under John King. The Lobos are a perfect 11-0 on homecoming night under John King, with the last the game was decided by a single score coming in 2010 against Mesquite Horn. Last season’s 56-7 victory over Greenville tied the second largest margin of victory for a Homecoming game in Longview history (only behind the 1991 Homecoming victory over Nacogdoches, 59-6). The last time Longview lost Homecoming came in 2003, 18-14, to #9 Tyler Lee. Pine Tree also enters Lobo Stadium for Green Out 2015. The Lobos are 11-2 all-time in Green Out contests, however Longview has lost 2 of the last 4 (2014 vs John Tyler, 41-25, and 2011 vs Allen, 42-23). The Lobos will be looking to win their 5th in a row over the Pirates, which would be the longest such margin of the series. To start the series, Longview won the first four which started in 1978 before the 1982 upset. The Lobos also will enter the contest with a long streak that has continued since King’s arrival as head coach. Longview has won 31 consecutive district home games dating back to 2003. Pine Tree’s lone victory last season came in a 31-29 victory over Mount Pleasant. The past three seasons Pine Tree is 1-16 in district play while the Lobos 16-game district winning streak overall with the last loss coming in 2012 to Mesquite Horn, 25-17. Under John King, the Lobos have just three district losses and a 60-3 district record overall. Since Longview’s first trip back to the East Texas district in 2008, Pine Tree is 3-41 overall in district contests.

In 1964, despite holding the Bulldogs to just 55 yards on the night, the Lobos needed a 3rd quarter touchdown from James Street to put a staple on a 21-14 victory over Carthage. Mike Crawford and Don Stout added the other markers for the Lobos.

In 1970, behind a 301 yard rushing night and a defensive showing that limited the Bulldogs to 66 yards, Longview strolled over Kilgore 28-0. James Lomax, Matt Dove, Ronnie Davis and Larry Smith were the touchdown men that gave Longview it’s points.

In 1992, Bryan held a 21-7 lead over Longview with just 8 minutes to play inside Viking Stadium before the fireworks began.

In 2009, Jojo Thurman of Texas High pulled Texarkana within 3 points of the Lobos inside Grim Stadium with just 7:28 remaining. However, the Lobo offense would never give the ball back to the Tigers going on an 82 yard drive to run out the clock.

They win the ugly. lol




I didn't think you could post your family pictures on here...


I know it won't let me post pictures, emojies, copy & paste, or anything on here. What's up with that? How can I fix that? This is Gilmer / Daingerfield week, yet I am handcuffed. It took all the joy out of the Gilmer / Tatum smackdown, too.

I don' know. That's odd. I'll see if I can figure something out.
