    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
    It's a game that has been circled on both teams' calendars since realignment was announced in February. Though a schedule change pushed the game back later than expected, Longview and Highland Park will meet on the gridiron..finally..for the first time in 34 seasons. But first, the Lobos and Scots remained undefeated in district play this past week as Longview improved to 2-0 in 7-5A D1 play while Highland Park won their district opener. The Lobos, behind a three touchdown day from Kaden Meredith and a two touchdown day from Markevion Haynes, steamrolled Wylie East, 52-17. It was the second consecutive week the Lobos had met a new opponent. Meredith and Haynes continue to have successful seasons running the ball for Longview, who combined have rushed for 1,324 yards on the year and accounted for 24 touchdowns. Highland Park heads east this week fresh off a 21-point win over Sherman in their district opener. After having two of their non-district games cancelled due to COVID-19, the Scots have started 3-0 on the year behind senior quarterback Brayden Schager's impressive start. The 3-star Hawaii commit threw for 255 yards against Sherman, completing 16 of his first 17 passes. The senior quarterback has thrown for 878 yards through the first three games, for five touchdowns with two interceptions. Now the two Texas powerhouses meet in what could potentially be for the district championship. Since falling to Temple in the first contest of the season, have not been challenged, winning all five contests by multiple scores. The Scots remain undefeated, dominating all three of their opponents, with Coppell fighting back from down 20 points multiple times in the contest to make the game look closer. Sherman's 14 points in the 4th quarter when down 41-7 also made their contest look closer than it actually was. Longview and Highland Park don't have a long series over their two illustrious histories. The two schools have met just seven times, the most recent back in 1986 when the Lobos rolled over the Scots, 41-14. Longview rushed for a staggering 496 yards in the Class 5A Regional round meeting held at Texas Stadium. Highland Park fumbled the ball four times in a game the Lobos controlled from the get go. The meeting prior to that came 19 years before, when the Lobos welcomed Highland Park to old Lobo Stadium in a season that saw Longview reach the post season for the first time in 20 years. The Lobos, behind Steve Judy and company, walked away with a 37-22 win over the Scots. The Lobos only other win over Highland Park came in 1939, when the Lobos defeated the Scots 6-0 in Longview. Highland Park has won all three meetings in Dallas, and one more at old Lobo Stadium, including a Class B Bi-district meeting in 1924 at Ownby Stadium 20-0. This will be Highland Park's first ever visit to this version of Lobo Stadium, which was built in 1976. The two schools have had plenty of chances to meet over the years in the post season, four in fact. The last came in 2009, when the Scots fell to Waxahachie in the third round of the post season, 49-35. The Lobos defeated 'Hachie the next week, 50-26. The two squads will meet both on highs in their programs' history. Longview heads into the contest having won 45 of the previous 49 games while Highland Park has won 45 of it's last 48 games, dating back to 2017. On a district level, the Lobos have won 20 consecutive district contests stretching back to a 2017 loss to Mesquite Horn. Highland Park has won 22 consecutive district contests, dating back to a loss at Wylie East in 2016. Longview has won 20 consecutive home games, and hasn't lost a home district game since 2016. While district titles now a days don't mean as much, this contest will likely determine that. Playoff seeding will be huge this season, as the runner up of the district is likely headed right for a second round match up against Lancaster. No doubt, it'll be a great atmosphere on Friday, even with the capacity condensed due to COVID. Two programs with nearly 1,600 wins combined, 8 state championships and 14 state title appearances, for a likely district championship is just the way to spend a Friday night in November in Texas.

    In 1981, Longview had a 10-6 lead with 5 minutes remaining in the game at Rose Stadium before John Tyler took over. A fumble by Gahlen Johnson on the JT 11 gave the Lions hope.

    Any ideas on how to get tickets for this game? Hoping to drive up from Houston to watch but would like to secure a ticket first. Looks like both schools just selling in person. Do you think there will be any available at the gate? Don’t care which side. Thanks

      Honestly, I'd be shocked.

      LISD doesn't do any online ticket sales, and it's all in person. Tickets go on sale Wednesday to general public (after all the families get a chance to get their tickets etc). There might be hill tickets left, or whatever HP sends back if they don't sell out their allotment. But this is one of the biggest district games we've had in quite a while....and with limit capacity, I'd be astonished if there were tickets available.
