    FULL GAME LOG

    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
    Longview headed into Lufkin's Abe Martin Stadium fresh off back to back victories against two programs the Lobos have dominated for the better part of two decades. They were set to face off against the West Brook Bruins, a team looking for revenge from the 2018 6A Division II State Championship game that saw the Lobos escape with a one point victory. The situation was pretty similar to the first game of the season against the Temple Wildcats, who were also looking for revenge following a post season loss to the Lobos. Unlike that first game, Longview showed up from the get go, behind the passing of Jordan Allen, the receiving of Jalen Hale and the senior leadership of Kaden Meredith. With a stifling second half defense to accompany their potent offense on the ground, the Lobos rolled past the 6A Bruins with a 51-28 victory. It was a game that these young Lobos really needed a statement in and they lived up to the billing controlling the game throughout despite the one score halftime lead. With the win, the Lobos have rebounded for three consecutive victories after their season opening loss and head into district play feeling much better about themselves than they were to start the 2020 season. Longview also won their second consecutive game at Abe Martin Stadium for the first time since 1991-1993. A feat even some of Longview's best teams have not been able to replicate. The Lobos, still rotating quarterbacks, has seen Jordan Allen find a rhythm with sophomore phenom Jalen Hale, as the sophomore now has five touchdowns on the season, one of the most by a sophomore receiver in school history. Kaden Meredith's five touchdown day saw him reach 3,000 total yards as a Lobo on top of reaching top 5 in touchdowns scored in total and rushing scores in Lobo history. As the Lobos end non-district play, the unfamiliar begins as the Lobos will face three new schools in district play, along with one team they haven't met in 44 seasons and another they haven't met in 34 seasons. First up on the new docket, is the West Mesquite Wranglers. The Lobos and Wranglers meet for the first time in completely different positions as programs as you could be. The Wranglers have failed to make the post season every year since 2016, with their deepest run coming in 2007 when the Wranglers fell 49-6 in the State Semi-Finals to Highland Park. West Mesquite enters district play with a 0-4 record, a 6-game losing streak overall and with just two wins their last 14 games overall. The Lobos, however, enter district play having won 40 of their last 43 overall ball games. The Lobos start 5A Division I play with John King holding a 90-6 overall district record since becoming head coach at Longview back in 2004. Longview has won 18 overall district contests, having not lost a district game since a 2017 game at Mesquite Horn. The Lobos also have won 20 consecutive ball games at Lobo Stadium. Under Jonh King, Longview is 14-2 in district openers, with the only losses coming in 2012 and in 2017. For Longview, this will be the fourth Mesquite ISD program they have faced out of the five Mesquite ISD schools. The Lobos are 37-7 overall against Mesquite ISD. On top of that, the Lobos have not lost to a Mesquite ISD program at Lobo Stadium since 1988. Longview is 19-2 against Mesquite ISD at Lobo Stadium, with both losses coming to North Mesquite.
