    FULL GAME LOG

    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
    Defense, defense, defense. The story of the season for the defending State Champion Lobos so far has been Longview’s defense. After holding strong in the initial game down in Lufkin after the Lobo offense put them in bad positions, the Lobos followed with back to back shut outs before allowing just a single score in last week’s battle against the #2 ranked Rebels from West Monroe, Louisiana. The only score surrendered in the last 12 quarters of play came in the opening two minutes against the Rebels, after quarterback Haynes King fumbled the ball on the Lobo 16 yard line. The Rebs needed just three plays to punch it in. The score denied another Lobo shut out, which would have been the first back to back to back shut out streak for a Lobo defense since 1980. Still, the Lobo defense held firm the rest fo the night, holding West Monroe to just 152 yards on the night. It’s the third consecutive game the Lobos have held opponents to under 152 yards. The win marked Longview’s 20th victory in a row, dating back to last season’s 16-0 run. The win also marked Longview’s 13th consecutive non-district victory dating back to 2016. West Monroe fell in non-district play for the first time since 2016, and for just the third time in the last 32 games. Now, Longview turns to district play where the red hot Rockwall Yellowjackets come to town. The 3-1 Yellowjackets only loss on the same came in the opening weekend of the season to the three-time defending state champion Highland Park Scots. The Jackets actually had a 17-point lead over the Scots in that contest, before Highland Park came back for the victory. Longview and Rockwall will meet for the 10th time on Friday night, with the Lobos having won 8 of the first 9 contests. Rockwall’s only victory in the series came back in 1931, a playoff meeting, in a 20-6 victory at Jacket Field. Since then, the Lobos have ripped off eight consecutive victories. All but one of those games have been district contests. Five of the seven games have been decided by 10 points or less. Last season, the Lobos put up 604 yards of offense on the Jackets to come from behind in a 42-35 victory. The Lobos trailed by a single score five times in the game, but managed to come back and tie the game all five times before forcing a stop. Longview returns to Lobo Stadium for just the second time this season. The Lobos are 43-1 under head coach John King in district game’s, with the lone loss coming in 2016 to John Tyler 38-24. Longview is 13-2 in district openers under John King, with both losses coming on the road…a 2012 loss at Mesquite and a 2017 loss to Mesquite Horn. It’ll be a huge game for the Lobos and Jackets in determining the 11-6A district champion, in what should be an extremely high scoring affair on Friday night.

    Wow, Rock Wall vs. Long View......should be another great one! I gotta hand it to the Rock Wall Coach for having the cajones to load up such a tough schedule early in the season. I miss those days.

        Should be a great game. Longview has been one of the best teams in the country recently. Rockwall is the OU of Texas HSFB, they are really good already, if their defense improves they will be a great team.

                The biggest question about this game is can Longview stop Rockwall's offense. I think they will get enough stops and the score will be Longview 48-41.

                    Rockwall wins this game in a lower scoring game than they are accustomed to.

                      Newton’s is over 30 games right now, though haven’t checked if they played on Friday.

                        Honestly, I think Longview will try and shorten the game a lot. The last two games have been rather strange. I thought Rockwall would beat us in 2017, with Haynes just starting his second game...but they shortened the game big time. Made no sense to me. 2018, Rockwall couldn’t stop us at all. Believe the one stop they got was when Perry dropped a sure first down with no one around him.

                        Definitely the best offense we’ll see this year, and one of the best players we’ll see all year. Excited to see how our boys handle him. This is one of the best defenses King has ever had at Longview, but still haven’t faced a team that has been able to test us in the secondary too much. I expect a lot of blitz on Friday for sure.

                          STATE champs, not seeing how they have performed remotely close to a team that is one of the best in the country.

                              in 2017 we had 5 turnovers and a blocked FG. We dominated the stats but couldn't get out of our own way!
