First meeting.

The meeting of two historic Texas High School Football program finally comes to pass Saturday afternoon in Dallas, Texas as the Longview Lobos and the Aledo Bearcats face off in the Class 5A Division I State Semi-Finals. Longview, winners of 770 contests as they head into their 1,178th game as a program, face off against the Bearcats, winners of a state record 10-state championships, in ther first ever meeting between the two, and in only the second time the two could have potentially faced off. Longview and Aledo had a chance to face off in 2015, but Mansfield Lake Ridge defeated Longview, 56-53, that season a week before knocking off Aledo, 42-21. For the Lobos, a week after knocking off the state's #2 ranked team, it will be another big test as Aledo comes in ranked 3rd in the state and having won 12 in a row after opening the 2022 season with two straight losses. Longview, winners of 14 in a row, come in following a gutsy 37-21 win over Mansfield Timberview. The Lobos and Wolves battled to a 14-14 tie at halftime, before outscoring Timberview 23-7 in the second half. Timberview's 60-yard run in the third quarter was the first time Longview's defense had allowed points in the third quarter since the second week of the season against Marshall. Taylor Tatum's incredible season continued as he inches closer to 2,000 yards on the year. The junior rushed for 186 yards against the Wolves, pulling him to within 160 yards of that elusive mark. Only two Lobos have ever reached the 2,000 yards rushed in a single season mark. Tatum tallied five touchdowns, including four rushing. The four rushing pushed him to 33 rushing touchdowns on the season, the first ever Lobo to reach 30 rushing touchdowns in a single season. His 36 total touchdowns continues to set school records. He sits just 12 touchdowns away from tying the total career touchdown mark. The Lobos move into the State Semi-Finals for the first time since that 2018 state championship season, and for the 10th time in program history. This will be the 6th time head coach John King has headed to the 5th round. King is 3-2 in the previous five trips, winning in 2008, 2009 and 2018. His 2010 and 2017 losses came by a combined three points. Longview will be county on lady luck once again at Kincaide Stadium, as the Lobos return to their home away from home in the Metroplex. Saturday afternoon's contest will be the 13th time in their history, riding a 12-1 record at the venue. The Lobos defeated Frisco Lone Star earlier this playoff run in their first trip back to Kincaide in four seasons. The Lobos will be playing their second State Semi-Final contest at Kincaide as well. The Lobos defeated Denton Guyer, 49-28, back in 2009 at Kincaide in a game that saw Longview rush for 492 yards. Aledo heads to the State Semi-Final for the 9th time in the last 10 years. Last season's loss to South Oak Cliff in the Regional Semi-Finals ended a run of 8 consecutive seasons the Bearcats had reached at least the 5th round of the post season. This will be their first ever trip to Kincaide Stadium. For the Bearcats, quarterback Hauss Hejny is their everything. Hejny has thrown for 17 touchdowns and rushed for another 13 this season.

On the road right now, will be too busy during the game to update, then will be visiting some DFW friends post-game... so don't expect much updates from me.

But everything and anything you need to know before/during/after the game can be found on the above links, or LoboFan07's Twitter page.

Praying for safe travels, no injuries, and a win for our community! LOBO UP!

Smh I rather watch paint dry than watch one of their broadcast 😂

Look up Longview ISD Athletics on youtube. Its the Longview broadcast and do a pretty good job.  It will be Longview biased obviously but they are way better than NFHS.
