    FULL GAME LOG

    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
    Perfection. For the second consecutive season, the Longview Lobos finished their regular season with a perfect 10-0 record. This year's squad ended the season with a dominating 49-14 victory over the Mesquite Skeeters. Longview, winners of 26-consecutive games dating back to last season's perfect 16-0 squad, tied the second longest district winning streak in school history with their 18th straight district win. It was Longview's 3rd victory at E.H. Hanby Stadium in the last five weeks. But now, it's time for some playoff football. And the Temple Wildcats come calling as the Wildcats visit Longview for the time since 82 years. Temple's last visit to Longview came in 1937, in the Class 1A State Quarterfinals. where the Lobos fell behind 12-6 at halftime before a 40-yard pass reception int he third quarter put the Lobos on top 13-12. Frank Lebus finished the game off with a 3-yard run in the 4th quarter as Longview knocked off Temple, 19-12. Friday's contest between Longview and Temple will be the sixth overall meeting between the two programs, and fifth playoff meeting. Longview traveled to Woodson Field in Temple in 1940 and 1954. The 1940 meeting was also a 2A State Quarterfinal meeting, one that saw the mighty Wildcats jump out to an 18-0 lead before Longview crawled back to 18-13 in the 4th quarter. Running Back Ed Dusek controlled the day though, and a 4th quarter score ended Longview's hopes of a comeback. Longview won the lone non-district meeting in 1954, 27-21. The two teams would not play against until 1993, when Temple was the defending 5A Division II State Champions. The Lobos jumped out to a 7-0 lead after one quarter at Pennington Field in the 5A D2 Area Round meeting. But Temple turned it on in the second half to walk away with a 28-7 victory. It would be another 18 years before the two schools would meet at Tiger Stadium in Corsicana in the 5A D2 Bi-District meeting, that saw a windy, windy day control the game. Longview led 7-3 after one half of play, but turned it on in the second with 17 points in the third quarter. The Lobos won, 24-3. Longview comes into the game with back to back 10-0 seasons, but the Lobos are also looking to turn a trend that has happened to them twice before. Longview finished 10-0 in both 1975 and 1976, how the 1976 bi-district contest against Sherman end 10-7 in favor of the Bearcats. Longview also finished 10-0 in 2004 and 2005, only to see the 2005 bi-district contest against South Garland go down in Lobo lore for all the wrong reasons as the Colonels knocked off nationally ranked Longview, 14-13. The Wildcats come into Lobo Stadium, their first visit to this stadium that was open in 1976, looking to buck a trend that has occurred since 2003. Temple is riding a 7-game losing streak in the post season on the top level of Texas High School football. The Wildcats last win in 5A/6A was a 23-17 bi-district victory against Round Rock McNeil back in 2003. However, Temple has won plenty of playoff games since then on the second level, after dropping to 5A in 2014. The Wildcats reached the 5A Division I State Final in both 2014 and 2016, where they fell to both Aledo and Highland Park. Temple no doubt will be looking to buck a notion that they also attempted to dodge Longview last season. The Wildcats were set to come to Longview last season with a victory over Copperas Cove in their finale, much like last season. But Temple did not win. Instead it was Copperas Cove walking off with a 22-18 victory to send the Bulldawgs to Lobo Stadium. It's been a full year since the rumors and speculation has started that the Wildcats threw the game to get a home first round football game against the 4th seed Mesquite Horn Jaguars last season, a game that saw the Jags walk out of Wildcat Stadium with a 45-38 victory. Either way, it's two of the top winningest teams in Texas High School Football history meeting on Friday. One team looking to shock the world, the other looking to just continue chugging on towards repeating.

    In 1968, Alton Coley scored twice, including the game winning scores with 9:30 remaining in the contest, as Longview knocked off John Tyler at Rose Stadium, 20-13. Mark Hill scored the other touchdown for the Lobos in the victory.

            Temple only has about 5 kids that played last year. That will have nothing to do with anything that happens Friday. These guys are just babies right now. They have an extremely bright future. Longview going to have to be ready to play Friday night.

              Ya this post is pretty ridiculous. You have no idea about the TEMPLE kids or fans and tradition. We are ranked 3rd in the state of Texas for wins and 43 in the nation. Temple isn't going anywhere. People have all kind of opinions about the cove game last yr. I was there and you can say what you want, but I back the coach and the kids.

                Sounds like Pilot will play QB starting next yr from what the paper said. He loves defense but will play anywhere the coaches want him too, I hope Samari isn't hurt to bad. I think he may have a concussion. Went out early an never returned.

                  Injuries are magnified on a team with no depth to speak of.

                    Imagine if Willis, Howard and Jackson were all out with injuries. We need depth.

                      I'm probably more excited about him playing QB then he is lol. I think after scouts see him at QB that's where they will want him at the next level. He can make any throw on the field. Big time arm talent I think he developed from playing select baseball. Then throw in the 4.5 speed I think he has a chance to do something really special at Temple with that entire class.

                      I didn't know Howard got banged up. Temple will definitely need him Friday for any chance at the upset.

                        gonna be tough to get those kids fired up about going to Longview after dodging em a year ago.

                          would be terrible. Jackson has had a mediocre career. He had chance to be one of the greatest to come out of Temple, but it never panned out. The coaches have had some fault in this. Instead of Jackson being the featured back like he should of been, he has had to share the load for three yrs, and as a RB you have to get into a groove and he never was given a true chance to do that.Last night when Samari went out and Jackson had to carry the load we all saw what he could of done as the feature back for 3yrs.if coaches not screw him over.He would of destroyed the Rushing record at Temple For the life of me why isn't Luke Allen # 12 not starting in the slot.He is to good of an athlete and he is on the sidelines. H is much better than freeman #2. Stewart talk a big game that doesn't matter what grade you are you will start if you are the better player. #2 is a SR. #12 is a JR.

                            I was really hoping the Lufkin and Temple games would be on separate days so I could catch both. But I'll be at Lobo Friday night. I think this is going to be a good thing for these youngsters to play a team like Longview in a environment like that. This will prepare them for any possible game in the future. The experience will be second to none.

                              That is just it that shows how arrogant some Longview fans and fans around the state, No one was dodging longview I can assure you of that. I was at the game, and if you or any other with a blind opinion would of been there you would understand what was happening throughout the game. I know you are just trying to bait me, congratulations you did, but I have been sitting back for a yr now listening to people trash our coach. He made the right decision when we started to get our main guys hurt in a row, he had to make that decision. The only SR on defense that was out there against cove is the only one that remembers. He missed the following week against Horn because he broke his leg in the cove game. The 2 FR starting on Defense were students at Travis Middle school last yr. The 3 soph were on the FR team last yr, and the others were a mix of Juniors and Seniors starting for the first time. Don't get me wrong longview is gonna put it on us. This is a bad match up for my young WILDCATS. longview just won state and have several players back. Hopefully we get the chance to play you guys at AT&T next year. It will be a much better game than it will this yr.
