Well "those" you spoke with really weren't paying very close attention then. While it wasn't a large score disparity it wasn't really that close of a call especially statistically.  Marshall

Why be a douche about it?  Nac doesn’t pick their district.  They compete where they are put... and they dominate.  just say congrats and move on.  Don’t see the point in trying to lessen thei

Longview knocks off Pine Tree, 6-4. 21-6 on the season. Seconded highest win total in the last 52 years for Lobo baseball.

0-0 at half between Longview and Wakeland. Competitive game. Wakeland definitely has had more chances but both teams with huge saves. Wakeland by far the best team we’ve played this year, no question.

Hallsville's win over Longview kept the Bobcats in commanding control of the district with a 2 game lead for the district championship.  Sulphur Springs, Longview, and Texas High are all tied up for third place..... setting up a fantastic finish for the playoff race.  One will be left out in the cold.

Longview and Sulphur Springs have already met twice. Cats won the first game. Still easily could’ve end up with another playoff meeting to determine who gets second and third of both hold service. Not sure who the Cats have left, Lobos have Mount Pleasant, Texas High, Marshall and Pine Tree remaining on the district slate (play Lindale on Monday).

They have Texas High, Marshall, Pine Tree, and Hallsville.

The problem with both Nac and Tyler is they have pitching and ZERO defense behind them. So many fielding errors doesn't give the pitching a chance. 8 and 9 run innings just kills any chance you have and robs your hitters of any leeway at the plate.

It’s a little shocking to see Nac struggle in softball.  They are generally pretty strong.

It flipped about 5-6 years ago, there was a change in the little league program here. Nac Youth Softball association board was taken over by parents from small towns out and around Nac. They changed the team building rules and schedules to allow those teams to be built and kept together from Tball all the way through high school while the players that live in Nac get shuffled from team to team every year. I wont use the "R" word but the the really good younger players end up leaving Nac ISD in elementary school in favor of some of the smaller schools. 

 

Girls Softball and Volleyball is where this shows up more than any other sport.

I think most 5A and 6A schools in ETX have a talent drain of a sport or two to a neighboring  school that excels in said sport. 

Marshall’s is definitely baseball and softball.  Our drain on those two sports is divided between a school to the West of us... and to the southeast of us.  Not to name names 😂

They are probably a few more "draining" school than that.

Not sure I follow. 

I think all East Texas 5A and 6A schools suffer a certain amount of athletic drain of one or two sports to a neighboring schools that excel in the sport the other struggles with.

Longview Gameday same group from Texarkana or a different group?

Great thing to have though. Interesting if/when UIL shuts door on live streams during football season.

Looks like the same group. They have the GAMEDAY LONGVIEW logo right next to a Texarkana one and a Rockwall county one.

Definitely a huge get for Longview. I doubt we'll have live streams this fall, but even replays of football, or even a pre game show that Texarkana has would be amazing. Of course I'm most excited about the other sports getting live games or even taped games, since that's been such a struggle over the years for non football Lobo sports.

Very exciting time to be a Lobo.

I assumed you were talking about a school that starts with a C and a H. I was referring to a smaller H that drains baseball/softball as well.

A little bit more detail here: https://w3.lisd.org/news/article/04122021-gameday.html  🙂👍

Yep, same group, BUT the coverage and marketing is going to be significantly upscaled. No disrespect to Texas High folks, but our plans for Longview Gameday are very ambitious. 

This is a moving target, and all of us are waiting on the UIL to provide some clarity for 2021-22, but we're developing various contingencies that will be adaptable to what the state determines.

Believe me, we're gonna walk right up to the line without crossing it.  ;) 

Still a lotta moving pieces on this, and there's a lot about this I can't say right now, but our plan is to finally give the Lobos the kind of multimedia presence they have deserved for so long.

Yes, pre-game and/or post-game wraps, podcasts and/or interactive livestream events, highlight packages and well-designed image macros for stats and game summaries. Not just football, but all sports. That's not lip service either, our people are hardcore about this. 

 

If you know someone with certain skillsets (or you are that someone) now would be the time to make inquiries about being a part of this. It's going to be a big deal.

Just putting that out there.  ;) 

That’s good stuff right there.
