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.

I predicted "close win" because it depends on which Lobo offense shows up...  if it's the big play offense that rolled up half-a-hunnerd against Tyler Lee and West Mesquite, then yes: Lobo blowout.

But if we don't clean up the silly penalties and momentum-killing turnovers, Wylie East will mess around and steal this one from us. 

The o-line has improved each week, so that's encouraging. Glad to have Clodhopper back as well, he's a big body who plays with his heart. The defense continues to play lights out, just need to tighten up the back end. 

Longview wins 44-18.

What are the odds Hale be alone at #1 career tds after next weeks game be nice to break it at home

I mean, it has to be a good chance, at the very least to tie it.

Kamden Perry had 23 receiving scores from 2016 to 2018.
Jayln Brown had 22 receiving scores from 2016 to 2017.

Jalen Hale sits at 21 receiving scores from 2019 to present (with an entire senior season still to play).

I'm not going to predict three receiving scores again, but again, that's literally only ever happened 10 times in our ENTIRE history (with Hale's 3 on Thursday being the 10th). But Wylie East does not having the speed on defense for sure to cover him. I think it's crazy to leave him 1v1 like West continued to try and do for whatever reason.

I can definitely see him tying Kamden on Friday.

All this 1v1 coverage on Hale is a direct result of opposing coaches knowing that more times than not the QBs won’t be able to get the ball to him

Watching Wylie East against Sherman....man East is going to struggle against Longview's defense. 

TJ Washington is a stud but the offense as a whole lacks identity. And the passing attack is non existent....which isn't good when you're a spread team.

Never understood talking smack over 7 on 7. We play 11 on 11... And beat them 52-17 last year, and it could've been worse. 

Yeah, might as well talk smack about your FFA teams...  which, for the record, our FFA team would kick their FFA's team's ###.

Also, awesome win for your Mustangs this weekend. 

I get it. They were excited to go to state and to beat us. Hot, muggy day. But yea, it was a lotttt of #### talking. I thought @LOBOFAN84was gonna lose it on em 😂

And thank ya good sir! I was pretty amped Saturday going into Sunday. Usually when we beat the Froggies it’s because of a couple trick plays and just barely holding on defensively. But Saturday, man, felt like I was watching Longview’s running game out there.

Knowing her like I do... @LOBOFAN84 prolly started some 🐂🐃💩...🤷🏾‍♂️🏌🏿‍♂️😆

Ya'll have no confidence in my ability to control myself in some situations. I may catch a complex one day! Probably not, though. 😇 😂  And all I said to our boys that day, was to remember all this mouthing when WE comes to Lobo with pads on. That was my input. SMH!

 

GO LOBOS!!
