    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
    Defending State Champions. The phrase every high school football program aspires to be going into a new season. The Longview Lobos, get that honor in 2019. The Lobos finished off the 2018 football season with a staggering come from behind victory over Beaumont West Brook, 35-34, in front of over 48,000 in attendance at the home of the Dallas Cowboys, AT&T Stadium. The victory for Longview ended 81 years of frustration that has seen celebration after celebration come through the city since that December day last year. Now, the focus is reset and a new season of Texas High School Football is upon us. Longview will open as the defending 6A Division II State Champions with a trip to their arch rival Lufkin’s home stadium, that has seen many, many frustration be handed to the Lobos in recent seasons. The Lobos visit Abe Martin Stadium in Lufkin for the 25th time, suffering losses in 10 of their previous 11 visits to the home of the Lufkin Panthers. Longview’s lone win at ole Abe in that span came in 2012, when Longview grabbed a stunning 45-14 victory over Lufkin. Lufkin comes into the 2019 football season after suffering another disappointing end to their football season. The Pack saw their 2018 season end at the hands of the Rangers from Frisco Lone Star, 49-21. The loss was one of just two for Lufkin last season, the only other loss being an opening week, come from behind victory by the Lobos, 35-28. The Lobos come into the 2019 football season having set every single school record imaginable in the 2018 season. Longview has won 16 consecutive games, dating back to their 2-point loss to Waco Midway in the 2017 6A Division II State Semi-Finals. The 16 wins in a row is tied for longest in school history. The 16-0 mark was a school record, among every single passing offensive records there is. Longview’s offense in 2019 will have to overcome losing Kamden Perry, who set every receiving record there is to set at Longview High School. And they’ll get a huge test right out of the gate with state ranked Lufkin, who has suffered three consecutive losses to the Lobos. Longview will be looking for their first four-game winning streak over the Panthers since they recorded five consecutive wins over Lufkin from 1989 to 1993. Since ending the 11-game losing streak to Lufkin in 2007, Longview has recorded a 11-4 over the Pack…including a 9-2 record in the previous 11 meetings. In those 11 meetings, the Lobos have won three playoff contests, two fo them by one point. Longview and Lufkin have met 82 times previously. Up until this previous run by the Lobos, the two schools were neck and neck in the overall series. But Longview’s recent dominance in victories has pushed the Lobos up to holding a four game series lead. Longview’s 41 victories over the Panthers sits 4th all-time in school history in wins over a single opponent, while Lufkin’s 37 victories over Longview sits third in school history in losses to a single opponent. The 82 meetings are the third most meetings in school history. The two programs first met in 1932, a decisive 34-0 Lufkin victory at Panther Stadium. Since that 1932 game, the two teams have not met on a football field just 12 years (1934, 1935, 1938, 1939, 1941, 1943, 1944, 1945, 1946, 1950, 1957 and 2005). Overall, the two programs have met 10 times in the post season, 20 times in non-district play and 52 times in district play. The Lufkin Panthers are one of just three teams in Longview’s history that the Lobos do not have a winning record in district contests again (the two teams are tied at 25 wins a piece and 2 ties). Longview also does not have a winning record against Gilmer (3-5-3) and Jefferson (1-1-1). The Lobos will open he 2019 football season as defending champions for the first time since 1938. Longview opened that 1938 season with a 20-6 victory over Dallas Woodrow Wilson. Their winning streak did not ended from the 1937 season (16 games) until three games into the 1938 season, a 13-13 tie against Port Arthur Thomas Jefferson. The Lobos also open the season having won eight consecutive non-district games dating back to their last visit to Abe Martin Stadium in 2016 (a 35-24 Panther victory). It will be a season of high expectations for both programs, one trying to keep their newly earned crown and another trying to reclaim old glory that has alluded them since they themselves won their crown. And while there won’t be any TV cameras showing the game live as there were to start the 2018 football season, Longview and Lufkin will no doubt put on another show for all of East Texas to see. Welcome to the 2019 Texas High School Football Season.

    ON THIS DATE IN LOBO HISTORY: August 30th
    In 2002, Longview and Marshall met in a non-district contest for the first time since 1933. The Lobos dominated early and often as Malcolm Kelly and Joel Armstrong struck for two first quarter touchdowns. Longview didn’t let up and rolled to a 42-14 victory over the Mavs at Lobo Stadium, behind 243 rushing yards. The Lobos overcame a 6 fumble night in the victory, and held firm against Marshall’s vaunted passing attack that threw for 39 tries on the night.
    In 2013, Longview met Coppell at Allen Eagle Stadium in the Tom Laundry Classic that saw the Lobos take a 17-12 lead over the Cowboys into the 4th quarter. However, Coppell struck back in the 4th, following a Longview touchdown by Dorian Leonard to increase the lead to 24-12. The Cowboys punched over three touchdowns in the final frame, including their final touchdown with just six seconds left, to grab a 32-24 victory over the Lobos.

        As I stated on Smoaky, Dave Campbell Texas Football is now the official prognosticators for Texas High School football starting this year and they have pegged the Lobos as 11 point favorites at Lufkin's Abe Martin. Enough said, it is a reasonable pick since Longview comes in with the Trophy hardware this year and still have their 5 star QB and State MVP Haynes King back for his senior season. In this one, 5A Lufkin has nothing to lose because no one expects them to win anyway, while Longview will be defending their crown all season. DCTF has the Lobos as odds on favorites to repeat and win back to back titles. I for one believe that is entirely possible for Longview this year, would not surprise me at all. STILL, this will be a rivalry game , on a hot night in Lufkin Texas, both teams always pull out all stops and hopefully will give a good account of themselves. No doubt this will be a tough battle and a learning experience for those new varsity players on both teams. I am pulling for a Lufkin win in this one, boy do we need one over these Lobos. However, Lufkin had to replace their entire defensive line this year and 4 of 5 Offensive lineman, so their are some unanswered questions there for the Panthers, so that may favor the Lobos a bit. Just want to get this game behind us and carry on with our 5A business at hand.

              I think this has the makings of a great game....Lufkins Dlibe will test the Lobos new o line that is not as big as last year and our secondary will be tested early and often.....

              i think Longview wins but they will pull away in the second half...

                Weight wise, they're actually bigger this year.

                But both G and C positions are all around bigger than last year.

                  I guess I mean to say they don’t seem as rangy (is that a word) to me...they look more squatty...guess I will get a better look on Friday

                    I gotcha.

                    The tackles last year were 6'7 and 6'3...this year we have 6'1 and 6'2. So not quite as much range at the tackle positions but just as much or more weight.

                    Both guard and C positions have more range and weight however.

                    Cox is bigger now than ever at the C position. The G's Sterling and Miller at 6'1 295 and 5'11.5 315 respecitively are larger than last years G's.

                      This is a real dangerous game for Longview. I think Lufkin has a real good chance here. We know how good Haynes King is but I'm telling you Jordan Moore is really talented. He will probably be the biggest QB recruit since Reggie McNeal that we have had. Easily a 4* talent with a WR Corps that is deep and skilled. Although I don't think Texas Tech commit Jaylnn Polk will play week 1 so that could be a huge blow to Lufkin but none the less should still cause plenty of trouble next week. As for defense the Pack secondary is anchored by 2 FBS safties led by Texas commit Jerrin Thompson and with a lot of game experience could really cause Longview trouble in the passing game with the graduation of Camden Perry. This is the most confident I have been going into this game in some time. Should be a fun one. To bad I may not make it. I most likely will be headed to see my son first HS game with Temple. He made the varsity as a freshman so we're really excited for his future. Going to be a fun season!!!

                        Dang, Reggie Mac? Even better than Jeremy Claybon?

                        Moore's a baller for sure so we'll see.

                        Haynes will be a factor no doubt, but willing to bet he wont be the biggest factor for Longview offensively in this game.

                          While I think there is a huge upside to Jordan Moore, it's probably not the time to knight him the next Reggie or Jeremy Claybon. Moore started the first 4 games for Lufkin last year as a soph in place of an injured Kewone Thomas. Had a real decent game in Longview last year with his first start. Last year was not his team though, 2019 is now his team and we will have to see how well his upside develops. He has 2 years starting next Friday night to show everyone what he can do. This game is all about Longview and Haynes King defending their 6A DII State Title, Lufkin has everything to gain and nothing to lose as far as I can see. When, your an 11 point underdog at home, that's a big deal and also can be a great incentive to protect your own turf. JaLynn Polk as far as I know has practiced every day. So far, knock on wood, everyone has made it though workouts unscathed so far. Scrimmaging @ 5A Div II Huntsville, ranked #5, will be a very good test for Lufkin on Friday. Tough scrimmage opponent. I am sure the Panthers will give Longview quite the challenge in about 8 days from now.

                            Jordon Moore is light years a head of Claybon. Claybon was a 5'11 SFA DB when it was all said and done. Moore stands 6'3 200 lbs. A legitimate FBS prospect at QB. I didn't say he was the next Reggie McNeal. I said he was the best QB prospect since McNeal. Totally different games.
