FULL GAME LOG

GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW:
One game at a time. The Longview Lobos have opened the 2022 5A Division I State playoffs with two resounding victories, that has seen junior Taylor Tatum take completely over the games. Tatum, through two playoffs games, has eight touchdowns and over 450 yards of offense, the most by any Lobo in program history through two playoff games. The 38-17 win, Longview's 7th consecutive 20+ point win, over Frisco Lone Star moves the Lobos into a familiar territory of the Regional Semi-Finals. For the first time in three seasons, it will not be Denton Ryan awaiting the Lobos in the Regional Semis. This will be Longview's 14th trip to the Regional Semis in John King's 19 seasons as Lobo head coach. It also is a round that has seen the most Lobo losses in a single round. The Lobos are 7-6 under John King in the previous 13 trips to this round of the playoffs. While the Lobos only have to look back to 2018 for their last Regional Semi-Final victory, Port Arthur Memorial enters tonight's contest looking for their first victory this deep into the playoffs since 2011 when the Titans defeated Spring Branch Memorial, 24-14. The Titans enter the third round of the playoffs for just the sixth time in program history, holding a 1-4 record in those games. Their two playoff wins this season are more than the Titans have had combined in the last five seasons. Port Arthur Memorial last entered this round of the playoffs back in 2017 when the Titans were defeated by Temple, 33-29. This will be Longview's 11th all-time game against Port Arthur ISD but the first since a 1947 2-0 victory against Port Arthur Thomas Jefferson. The Lobos and Yellowjackets faced off ten times between 1937 and 1947 with Port Arthur Thomas Jefferson taking a 5-3-2 series lead in those ten games. Longview and Port Arthur Memorial will each be playing their second game at Lufkin's Abe Martin Stadium this season. Longview previously defeated Lufkin, 56-7, down at Abe Martin back in September while the Titans escaped with a 52-50 four overtime victory last week against the Wakeland Wolverines. This will be Longview's 28th overall game at Abe Martin, dating back to its opening 1973. Longview will be looking to make history to win its fourth contest in a row at Abe Martin. The Lobos have won 3 in a row at Lufkin three times in its history, and is currently riding that three game winning streak dating back to 2019. The Lobos will be looking to even it's record at Abe Martin as well, as they currently hold a 13-14 record all-time there. While this will be the first ever time to play a playoff game at Abe, this will be the third time Longview has faced off in a playoff game in Lufkin. Longview defeated Lufkin, 19-0, in 1937 before falling to Lufkin, 33-0, in 1942.

ON THIS DATE IN LOBO HISTORY: November 25th
In 1909, in the first ever football game in Longview history, Marshall and Longview battled to a 0-0 tie at Brown Park in Marshall.
In 1915, Marshall knocked off Longview, 24-0, at Tee Pee Park.
In 1926, Gilmer defeated Longview, 7-0, in Fair Park in Longview.
In 1937, Marvin Jordan led the way with three touchdowns as seven different Lobos scored in a 57-12 victory over Gladewater at Bear Stadium to cap a 10-0 regular season.
In 1943, Longview held Gladewater to 67 total yards as 7 turnovers by the Lobos weren’t enough to turn away a 42-7 victory over the Bears at Bear Stadium. The Lobo defense produced 10 turnovers themselves in the win.
In 1948, Gladewater ended a 9-game Lobo winning streak thanks to Bobby Honeycutt’s three touchdowns in a 33-7 beatdown of Longview at Lobo Stadium. Six Lobo turnovers doomed Longview on the night.
In 1954, Dub Thomas tallied three touchdowns to help lift the Lobos over Marshall, 27-18, on Thanksgiving Day at Lobo Stadium.
In 1989, Ernest Hunter rushed for 147 yards and two touchdowns but the passing performance of Huntsville quarterback Steve Clements overcame the Lobos in a 24-14 victory by the Hornets at Texas Stadium. Clements passed for 266 yards and three touchdowns.
In 2006, a 96 yard kickoff return, a 42-yard field goal followed by a blocked field goal in the dying seconds were enough to lift Garland to a 24-21 win over Longview at Texas Stadium. The Lobos managed 377 yards on the night and held the Owls to just 117 but two short fields in the third quarter were enough to give the win to Garland.
In 2017, beyond 462 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns, Longview ran passed Dallas Jesuit, 75-43, at Kincaide Stadium in Dallas. Jaquan Edwards had four touchdowns while Keilyn Williams rushed for three in a game that saw the Lobos score 11 touchdowns on just 36 snaps.

I dunno how feel about pa memorial them being 11-1 shouldnt be giving up 50 to a 7-4 

Gotta do it to win however they do it.

Last minute hail mary touchdown just to tie it. Turns into a four overtime game.

Their QB and his ability to extend the play and get something out of nothing really worries me.

If Longview shows up and plays THEIR game from the outset

this shouldn't be any closer than a 3-4 score difference.

 

Of course, the Officiating crew (wherever they're from) might decide to

interject their input into the matter as the Lobos seemingly can't get out

of it's way to not draw flags by the bushel full ?!?

The last two weeks have been absolutely atrocious on all levels.

No doubt we did do some, but you're telling me with that LS QB running around for his life the entire night, there wasn't a single holding on them? Not to mention the QB shoving/pushing one of our guys right in front of the ref, no call, followed by us celebrating marginally a nice punt return getting a call for unsportsmanlike.

Just baffling stuff last night.

Crosby was from Fort Worth, last night was from San Antonio. None of them have been good.

Reedy sent Lancaster to the basketball court.

Reedy is 12-0.

What are y’all thinking about Reedy?

sneaky good team but Lancaster gave it to them.  Lancaster held them to 190 yds total offense but turned the ball over 4 times. Lancaster also put up over 400 yards against them. That game should not have been close.

Longview plays to their potential they should win comfortably. Play not up to par then this gets interesting. I will take the Lobos by 14+!

With the way Longview's games have played out the last two weeks and the injuries that are mounting, I would say a 14 point win is probably good. This will be the second time this season we won't be the more athletic team on the field.  PAM plays up or down to their opponents but they can light up the scoreboard.  This will be a very physical team we are playing. This is a team we absolutely can't let hang around. I have got to watch some more film.

I don’t agree that they are the more athletic team. I also believe they haven’t played a team as physical as us all season, and certainly haven’t seen a defense like ours. 
They can score points, sure. But again, they haven’t faced a defense like ours. They also give up a lot of points. Something that will not bode well for them against our offense. 
 

As long as we play our game, I think we win big.

The injuries are my biggest worry, outside of their athletic QB that can move move and move some more.

In terms of "how we've played the last two weeks," I don't think we've play bad by any stretch of the imagination. Crosby took their best shot in the first quarter, like most teams do against us. McNorth did it, Forney did it. Lancaster did it, Marshall did it. We dominated that game. The only difference was it was rainy, cold and it made the night drag and drag and drag.

Tonight, look...we are the better team. Lone Star got some deep balls on us. They do what King is afraid to do....give Jalen a shot to make a play. Their big time receiver made a couple really nice plays. But at the end of the day, almost all of their drives were extended simply due to penalties. Some were legit, some weren't. but I don't think we played bad by any stretch of the imagination. Could we be having a different conversion if we don't make the interception early in the third? Perhaps. But it happened, and it snowballed on them and we dominated the rest of the way.

Not realizing how mixed up our O line was explains some of the false start calls we got. I still don't think the Hale penalty was a penalty by any stretch of the imagination. Tha team, much like Crosby, flopped all over and the refs bit hard.

PAM is a solid team, but one we should be beating imo. I don't think we'll be facing anywhere near the line play that we did against LS until we get the chance, hopefully, to play against Aledo.

Thankfully looking like the weather will be amazing on Friday night in Lufkin.
