    FULL GAME LOG

    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
    A 40th district championship in program history and a first round home playoff game in two weeks time was the goal for the Longview Lobos as they headed into their Senior Night contest against the Robert E Lee Red Raiders. Two goals they achieved with flying colors. The Lobos delivered their 18th consecutive home win with a dominating 49-7 victory over the Red Raiders, winning their 15th in a row over their rivals from the East. The Lobos and Red Raiders met for the 60th time on Friday night, but the series got even more lopsided as the Lobos expanded to a 30 game lead over Tyler Lee (44-14-2). In the win, quarterback Haynes King improved to 35-1 as a starter, dating back to his 2017 sophomore season. His 4 touchdown pass performance gave King 82 touchdown passes in his career, by far the most in Longview history by a quarterback. Overall, King hit 100 touchdowns (82 passing, 17 rushing, 1 receiving). The Lobos, winners of 25 games in a row overall, now turn their attention to the Mesquite Skeeters in their regular season finale. Longview returns to Hanby Stadium for the third time this season, having won the previous two contests by a combined 99-20 scoreline. The Lobos have won three in a row at Hanby Stadium overall. Mesquite, 7-2 on the season, started their season off with a perfect 4-0 record before Mesquite Horn upset the Skeeters in their district opener. The Skeeters won three in a row following that loss, but struggled against Rockwall Heath and Tyler Lee. Rockwall dominated the Skeeters last week in a 66-42 win for the Jackets. Mesquite comes in with not much to play for, as the Skeeters are locked into their Division I #2 Seed, and should have a neutral site game against Killeen Shoemaker or Killeen Harker Heights (as both teams will finish in 3rd place). Longview, however, comes in with at least a couple things on their mind. The Lobos are looking to keep their 25-game winning streak alive, along with their 25-game regular season winning streak and 17-game district winning streak. The Lobos also are looking to clinch their 33rd outright district crown. All of this is in preparation for their last game at Lobo Stadium next Friday night when they host either Temple or Waco Midway.Â

          Don't you come in here with that targeting nonsense after the game either lol

          I'm telling ya right now, our defense is on a whole other planet compared to our defense last year.

          As for this game, I kinda see it going similar to last years game. Close for a moment, but Longview pulls away.

          48-14 Lobos.

              Two words - Jaxon Smith - that kid could wear a blindfold and still make a play on the ball.

              Rockwall also has a pretty fast and squirmy RB.

              They got up two scores really quick (tricksy onside kick after first score) - and stayed there -

              Not really much else to say - LT had a good night, McGill had some good looks-

              Quite a few holding penalties, some missed opportunities- but pretty much played the line (23 point underdog)

              It was a nice clean game.

              Rockwall was a nice host (despite the crappy visitors side of that stadium).

                Well, some things said in the heat of passion should stay there.

                On a related note - the Skeeter coaches (who read this forum [👋 coaches] and are way too smart) figured out my identity a few weeks ago. I no longer have the luxury of being just “a Skeeter fan”

                  Why do you think it was such a disappoinment he got hurt on the first play in the Longview game. He makes everything go. We wouldn't have beaten Longview with him, but we would've been alot more competitive. He's not only the best WR in the state, he's the best player.

                  I just don't see how Mesquite will be able to stay close to LV. The Qb is a superior athlete, Turner is a top level RB, and the receivers are very physical and quite big out there blocking. But, Mesquite just can not throw the ball. McGill throws a nice ball, but the passing game is just not there. Trying to be a run only team is not going to work against Lobo D. I think it's going to go just like the Lee vs LV game. Mesquite won't move the ball just trying to run.

                        I think both teams come out hard...for the first half or so. By that time, I see LV with at least a comfortable lead, at which time I would expect to see both teams start to rein things in. There is zero benefit of either team going balls out for all 4 qtrs of this game.

                          Right about Jaxon and as much as I hate to say it--there are quite a few other teams in the state that could beat Rockwall if Jaxon got hurt--not just Longview.Not making excuses for the loss to Longview BUT the fact is---Jaxon makes Rockwall tick--if you will.Also about the visitors side of Wilkerson-Sanders Stadium---about 6 years or so ago a school bond was presented to the voters to build a brand new stadium at a different location but the voters turned it down so the district did the best they could by building a new home side at the present location instead.Not only that to rub it in they approved one hellava giant swimming pool AKA--Natatorium-- which is the big building just pas the north endzone--lol.

                            Just curious to know what was crappy about the visitor's side? I've never been inside that stadium but pass by it on occasion and thought the stadium looks like a cool place for some Friday night lights.

                              Nothing.. Its the concessions/restrooms. The visitor side is small like nearly all the other visitor sides. Lol. Except Rose and Memorial. Lobo and Hanby are just as crappy. Wilkerson home side concourse is amazing. Two different concessions area and TVs while you're in line and don't miss the game.
