FULL GAME LOG

GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW:
Playoff time in Texas. It's the best time of year, and for the Longview Lobos who are fresh off registering their 12th perfect regular season in program history, they have sights on a long playoff run. For them to get there, the first of a six game gauntlet comes in the form of the Crosby Cougars. In a billing that was pegged for the Regional Semi Finals to start the season, Crosby has fell short of the expectations that were placed on them following their move from 5A Division I. Starting the season ranked 6th in the state of Texas, the Cougars quickly fell in their first game of the season against CE King by a heavy 63-7 scoreline. Crosby's season overall didn't start much better, as the Cougars started 3-4 on the year before turning it around in a playoff deciding win over New Caney Porter, 26-21. The Cougars are two years removed from a 5A Division 2 State Finalist berth after last season falling in the State Semi-Finals. The Cougars have won their last three bi-district games, last losing 72-69 to Port Neches-Groves in 2017. This will be the first ever meeting between the two programs. For Longview, following a 70-0 victory to win their 19th consecutive senior night contest, the Lobos head into the playoffs after going wire to wire in the regular season ranked as the No. 1 team by Dave Campbell's Texas Football for the first time in program history. The Lobos won their 13th consecutive home game with their win over the Wranglers, and improved to 88-6 at home under John King. Longview is 34-1 in their last 35 games at home. In their playoff appearance at home, the Lobos are hosting a home playoff game for the 6th consecutive season. It will be the 7th contest for Longview to host at (new) Lobo Stadium. The first playoff game back in 1984 was their only loss, a 24-14 defeat to Bryan. That was the last time the game was within two scores, as Longview as dominated their last seven home playoff games. Overall, this will be the 14th playoff game Longview as a program has hosted. The Lobos are 9-3-1 overall. For bi-district games, the Lobos enter the playoffs for the 48th time in program history and 19th time under John King. Longview has made the post season now 22 seasons in a row. Under John King, Longview is 16-2 in bi-district games with the Lobos only losing in 2005, 14-13 to South Garland, and 2016, 34-33 to Beaumont West Brook. Friday's contest will be the 120th playoff contest in program history with 68 of those comings under John King. The Lobos hold a 45-17 record under King in post season games. As a program before John King arrived, Longview had just 29 playoff wins. Longview's Taylor Tatum enters the post season seven touchdowns away from tying the school record for touchdowns in a season. He's just the 11th Lobo to score 21 or more touchdowns in a season. While quarterback Jordan Allen won't break the single season passing record, he can become the 6th Lobo quarterback to hit 20 or more passing touchdowns in a single season with two more. Jalen Hale's two touchdown day against West Mesquite pushed him to 11 receiving scores for the season, lifting him to the 5th time for a Lobo player to hit 11 or more scores in a single season. He's the first ever receiver in Longview history to have multiple seasons of 10 or more receiving scores.

Will get the full bracket locations and dates updated hopefully by tomorrow (probably late tomorrow night).

Longview, obviously, should be winning this one. Just have to play our game and stay healthy. Be the Lobo squad we know we are.

I probably said it 10 times already. This is the matchup I have been waiting for since realignment. No exactly the way I thought it would happen, but its going down none the less. 

I am going to do a little more research on how "healthy" Crosby is before giving my thoughts. 

Longview wins this game.

Just looking at the bracket, Frisco Emerson in D2 is hosting Heritage at the Star next Friday.

Now there's three stadiums in Frisco ISD they could use so they could fit both Lone Star vs Richland and Reedy vs WT White on Friday night.

Obviously hopeful they put Lone Star on Thursday though, or even Saturday afternoon.

What’s the reason for your desire to see this matchup?

They were preseason top 5 and expected to be one of the best teams in our region. They also made it to the finals and semis in 5AD2 the last few years prior to moving up. At the time they had a pretty good following as well.  Would be a great playoff atmosphere.

Hearing now that their fan base has really dropped off.  To hear their fans tell it, they have played most of the year down 1/3 to 1/2 of their starters.  If they are at full health which they have not been all year, then we should get a good matchup.  Definitely not a typical 1 vs 4 matchup if they have all of their guys.  So should be a good challenge for Longview.  More to come after I watch a little more video of the last few weeks.

The last couple weeks they did say they were basically back at full health.

Honestly, I don't think it matters. Their defense, especially against the run (at least against La Porte) is horrendous. I wish there was a place down south that kept the stats for most teams like the Dallas News does but man. Taylor Tatum should have a field day, I would suspect. Alijah Johnson right there as well.

Get Allen involved early, to get him in a rhythm, and we know our defense is going to be great.

Crosby's QB will be mobile, that's my only concern because we have struggled a little with that here and there (mostly against Lancaster and it's mostly just plays where the opposing QB has nothing else but to make a play on their own).

I just don't see how Crosby can win without Longview helping them significantly.

Right! I feel like this will be a blow out from the start. Longview could win in 6A this year. Maybe not win state in 6A but would go deep.
