    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
    Bye week is over and it's back to the grind for the defending 6A Division II State Champions. Longview and Mesquite Horn meet for the 13th time this Friday night, heading into the contest in two extremely different situations. The Longview Lobos head to E.H. Hanby Stadium fresh off their lone bye week of the season. The week prior, the Lobos opened 11-6A play with a dominating 49-3 victory over the #14 ranked Rockwall Yellowjackets. Most would not have been shocked at the Longview victory over Rockwall, who won their 9th in a row over the Jackets. But the way the Lobo defense dominated Rockwall was beyond eye popping, as the Jackets were averaging over 50 points a game in non-district. The Mesquite Horn Jaguars head home this week, a week after facing those same Rockwall Yellowjackets...and falling in Rockwall, 45-7. With the loss, the Jags fell to 2-4 on the season, the lone team with a sub-.500 record in district 11-6A. The Lobos and Jags still have it all to play for in district action, as a win for the Jags could easily jump Horn back into the district championship race. Longview, 5-0, heads into Hanby with a 5-0 record and holder of the state's longest winning streak at 21-games. Longview's last loss came back in December of 2017, and the Lobos stand 31-1 in their last 32 contests. Longview also holds a 13-game district winning streak, with the last loss coming...to the Mesquite Horn Jaguars, back on September 22nd, 2017. In Longview's 13-game district win streak, the Lobos have had just 3 games decided within two scores (31-21 vs Rockwall in 2017, 28-19 vs John Tyler in 2017 and 42-35 vs Rockwall in 2018). The Lobos return to Hanby Stadium for the first time since a 2017, 61-3 victory over Mesquite. Previous to that victory, the Lobos had lost three consecutive games in the stadium, including twice in a row to the Jaguars. The Lobos hold an 9-3 overall record inside Hanby. Longview's last victory over Horn in Mesquite came in 2011, a 38-30 back and forth affair. Since becoming head coach in 2004, the Lobos are a perfect 15-0 in games following their bye week..with last season's 50-3 win over the Jaguars being the second largest margin of victory of the entire 2018 football campaign. The Lobos and Jaguars meet for the 13th time in school history, which sits as the 16th most against a single program in Longview's history. The two programs first met in 2004, a 42-14 Lobo victory in a rain soaked Hanby Stadium. Longview jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the series, with Horn's first win not coming until 2012, a 25-17 win at Hanby. The two squads have met three years in a row following Longview's return to 6A, with the Lobos taking two of the three meetings. Longview heads into the game, looking to stay perfect no doubt, but with a win Longview will have clinched their 78th winning season in 110 seasons of Lobo football. In the last 49 years (not counting this season), the Lobos have winning seasons in 45 of them.

    In 1930, Shreveport Byrd knocked off Longview 32-6 at Byrd High School Stadium.
    In 1935, Longview fell to Fort Worth Masonic Home by a 27-0 scoreline at Fair Park in Longview.

    In 1946, Jack Serpass rushed in from one yard out late in the fourth quarter to give Longview a 7-0 victory over Texas High at Lobo Stadium. The Tigers threw four interceptions on the day.
    In 1957, Billy Colley gave Longview a 7-0 halftime lead with a one yard rush, but Fort Worth Polytechnic’s Sonny Rosina and Johnny Burrell tallied second half scores as the Parrots knocked off Longview at Farrington Field, 13-7.
    In 1963, Kenny Walters scored two first half touchdowns with Tommy Tompkins rushing back a 50 yard interception for a pick six as the Irving Tigers knocked off Longview, 18-0, at Lobo Stadium.

    I'm anxious to hear from the Rockwall/Horn faithful on what the heck happened last night!

      The same time that showed up against the Lobo's last year played Rockwall last night. From the start you could tell they didn't even want to be their. They were winless last year when the played Longview and it was clear they were defeated before they even got off the bus. There is no excuse for being the same against Rockwall. They did not want to be their and they played like it. I put this one the coaching staff for not having them focused and ready to play. That performance was dismal.

        Horn looked like Rockwall did last week against Lomgview--perplexing to say the least!!

          I agree, except I will add... After one play last week.

          I feel like grainraiser has that correct. Horn was flat all the way around, from pregame on. Not sure why. After a big win last week over Mesquite, their season should've been right in front of them. No matter what though, they weren't beating Rockwall last night. From practice this week through pregame Rockwall had that quiet focus to them, like the Allen game last November.

          Horn can't beat Longview, but they sure as heck can use that game to get better. Just be focused and play well, it will help after this game. You're not gonna see anything better unless you make in into the final four, at least.

            Horn’s offensive options from what I saw earlier in the season will be severely limited by the Longview defense. They will have no answers for the Lobo offense. This game could be over well before halftime. Longview backups should get significant playing time which will benefit them going forward and give Lobo starters rest going into district stretch run.

                    My two cents worth...

                    I wouldn't bet a plug nickel on Horn being able to beat LV this week...HOWEVER...here's the thing. Horn is fast. Very fast. Horn will not win, but it will not be because they are out-athleted by LV the way that Rockwall was. Rockwall's D is a little better this year than in year's past because they are more effective at tackling, but our D is really, really slow. LV and especially HK took a lot of advantage of that. Horn is super fast on both sides of the ball. Rockwall's domination last week came from effectively being able to run between the tackles all night. Any attempt we made to get outside was stifled by Horn's speed. Offensively, Horn controlled the second half because they stopped turning the ball over and was able to use their speed to get to the edge and continue to move the chains. Having said all of that, I have zero reason to believe that Horn will be any more prepared to execute cleanly this week than they were last week. But, on the off chance that they are focused and mistake-free, I'm just saying that Horn has the athletes to at least make it interesting.

                      Thanks for the insight...really interested to see our defense against the kind of speed you say Horn has...Horn always gets hyped for Longview should be a good one

                        I said it once and ill say it again, there is not a team in 11-6A that can match up with Longview this year. Rockwall was the closest thing to having a chance
                        and we all see how that turned out. Horn has speed, Horn has Athletes, but Horn has no coaching!!!!
                        Thus saying that gimme Longview 40+ on the win.

                          Agree with all this.

                          Rockwall is bigger on the D line than they have been in years, and getting better with the rotation, but is very, VERY slow at LB. And the DBs are very small. LV exploited it all night. Horn is one of the faster teams I've seen in a while, but their O line is really bad. Longview's D line will destroy everything Horn tries to do.

                            I am very interested to see how this game starts. Longview built consistency from the 2nd half of the JT game to Rockwall. I hope that we come out fast and play at a level close to our last game. Consistency will be the key....
