      2002 was the year we went 10-4 made it all the way to the Quarterfinals losing to District foe and nemesis Lufkin by a score of 24-21 and another one of those missed field goals at the end.

      It was also one of the years we had to face JT (North), Tyler Lee (Legacy) and LP twice both home and away. 3 of our 4 losses that year came at the hands of LP.

      2002 was the year we knocked off LA #1 Evangel, blasted #7 Garland 45-0 in a Rose Stadium Bi-District clash and knocked off undefeated #9 Dallas Carter in the Area Round 17-7. The Garland and Dallas Carter wins were two of my most fun and memorable victories on my all times list. We dominated Nationally Ranked Garland from start to finish and knocked off a very cocky DC team in a defensive battle. That was a thrilling fun win to say the least. We then advanced to play Spring in one of the last High School playoff games to be played at the Astrodome winning another hard fought battle 20-17 only to advance to face LP in the Quarters at the Rose and losing to them for the third time in a single season. That loss was heartbreaking because we all felt at the point Longview had advanced to be the better of the two teams - losing another game by missing another FG to end a football season.

      In summary, 2002 was a talent-ladened team (Joel Armstrong, Tate Casey, Fred Hawkins, etc.) that failed to top a longstanding nemesis in LP.
      That Garland game was a behind the shed beat down. I don't think Garland ever returned from that.

        Willie Andrews move from WR to Tailback right?

              But boy have the tides turned heavily in our favor the past decade with back and forth games from 07-10.

              Anyway, 2002 team will forever be special to me. 10-4, but as you pointed out, 3 of those losses came to LP who was fresh off a title and was knocking on the door of more of them during that time frame if it weren't for a machine called Southlake Carroll. The other came to Lee, who was good too but we avenged that loss a few weeks later.

              Joel Armstrong, Tate Casey and a young sophomore Malcolm Kelly were probably the 'faces' of the team but my goodness....the others were deadly. You know how it is at Longview, the best players aren't always the ones getting the offers. I'm not saying this was the case here, I'm not saying it wasnt....I'm just saying that the talent wealth on that team was high.

              Jerrel Williams was a nice RB, his FB Chris Jones was a short guy but a pounder of the football. Fred Hawkins and Rogers Taylor were also great offensive weapons...

              Keaton Daniels is one of the best safeties to come through this program period. He set the tone for great safeties that came after him like Cortez Beall and Joe Brown. Larandall McKind was like a baby Willie Andrews, he really was. He could play all over the field but made his mark at CB where he was 1st team all state in 2002. McKind was the first CB that I remember after 97 bring absolutely dominant and he would definitely be on my top 5 corners list since the new era started in 2000. He and Daniels headlined that secondary.

              Brandon is Templeton and especially James 'Boom' Stephens were good LBs. Stephens had more tackles than the all american Marvin Byrdsong the year before in 2001. And think about it...Robert Henson didnt even start as a JR in 2002! So that really speaks of what those LBs were.

              What a team.
              Man you bring up names like Cortez Beall, Joe Brown, Willie Andrews and Robert Henson you bring back some fond memories of some of my all time Lobos Greats. Others but ‘older school athletes’ that comes to mind includes Leo McCoy, Steve Gaddis, Rickey Watts, Johnny Fuller, Llewellyn Fambles, Hosea Taylor, Kenny Jackson, Greg Brown, Reno Hutchins, Dinky Edwards, Victor McGee, Mack Faggett, Steve Bradham, Shawn Byrdsong, Gahlen Johnson, Joe Johnson,’Leon Bell, Elvis Bradley, Lee Jackson, Chris Fuller, Rolando Reese, Dexter Daniels, Fred Talley, Eric Harris, Kirt Griffin, Eric Faggett, Earnest Hunter, Cory Hutchings, Chris Butcher, Bobby Taylor and one of my all time favorites, Duke Brooks (mighty mite LB and all everything). Wow, there’s a long list of great athletes to don that green and white and that Rocking L.

              The Tradition is alive and well! Go Lobos!

                The two hardest hitting players I've seen wear the Lobo uniform.

                Crazy enough, the hardest hits that I saw in game from both came against John Tyler.

                Joe's was absolutely viscious. I thought he literally decapitated JT's sophomore WR at the time, Greg Ward Jr.

                  You are correct Sir. These young men played the game anxious to hit somebody...anybody no matter their size...

                  Here’s my short list of hard hitting ball-hawks:
                  Elvis Bradley, Hosea Taylor, Duke Brooks,
                  Bobby Taylor, Lee Jackson, Cortez Beall, Leon Bell, Joe Brown, Jephaniah Lister, Tyshawn Taylor, and Kybrien (Kybo) Jamerson...etc., etc....

                  Cortez was one of the most vicious hitters of all times but the hit Jephaniah Lister put on Tascosa’s runner sent the Lobo crowd into a frenzy of oooh’s 😖😲😮😳😬 so hard that the stupid official penalized him out of sheer horror-struck and unmitigated fear for the safety of the runner. And who could ever forget the hit Lee Jackson made against Killeen Ellison in 1997. The game was delayed for an extended period while the runner laid seemingly lifeless on the turf.

                  Whose next to be added to this list...

                    All these names, and there’s one season and one person that never gets mentioned or talked about.

                    I would love to know what happened in 1990. We started the season 6-0. Completely dominating everyone we played. Then we get blown out by freakin Nacogdoches and everything goes off the wall (from here it looks that way at least).

                    And literally no Lobo fan ever mentions John Washington. He was high up on a ton of receiving records until the last decade and a half.

                    Any input??

                      Jordan Burton was a monster too. Started right next to Joe as a JR on that 2010 defense.

                      As far as intimidating safety tandems, I put them up against anyone. You did not want to get hit by either of those dudes.

                      Signed UDFA with Chicago Bears after doing big things at Oklahoma State.

                        That group started the season with high expectations ranked in the top ten (10) if my recollection is correct. But after that Nacogdoches loss that team faded into near obscurity I believe winning only one District game that year and pretty much out of fans memories. A disappointment - like a bad taste in the mouth that was expected to be sweet similar to the 1998 team. It’s a shame but the winners are most often remembered. But you’re correct Sir, John Washington was special and amongst other players from that team that’s rarely mentioned in the laurels of Lobo football history except Bobby Taylor and I do think because he played for Notre Dame and in the NFL and All Pro. Players deserving accolades from that team but not limited to includes Andre Davis, Bobby Taylor, Brian Chumley, Jason Dodson, Kevin Madden and of course, John Washington just to name a few.

                        Sorry but there’s been so many Lobo greats that occasionally someone will briefly slip your mind. For example, the mention of ‘hard hitters’ brought Lee Jackson and his 1997 hit on the Killeen Ellison’s runner back to memory. I am sure I’ve missed someone else deserving mention...too many Greats to recall. Go Lobos!

                          We had a safety named Stevie Taylor that played in the mid 70s that was known for incredibly hard hits. I think it was Vidor that we were playing when he demolished a receiver, Vidor wasnt good anyway but that hit set the tone for a total wipeout.

                            Burton had fun in college man. Was also one of the best punt returners to come through the den too. I know this place gets a rep for being RBU but we have out some nasty safeties too.

                              The final score didnt reflect it, but Lister had a DOMINANT game that night.

                              I'd never seen such a dominant game from a Lobo defender..it felt like he was in on every tackle. He had a great game the week before against Westfield too...but that was mainly dominated by Goram-Welch. They could not block him.

                              If not for size bias, Lister was an all american. Longview's all time tackle leader. It was Joe Brown before that.

                                All I can recall about the scheduling of that 1974 game against Vidor was that it was a poor ill-advised decision to play them down there. That game left a lot of horror stories with Longview faithfuls in its aftermath. Although we’ll never really know whether the sequence of events were blown out of proportion, the tales of the day was that several of Longview players feared for their lives and that the school bus had to be escorted out of town by the police following the game. I didn’t attend that game due to advance rumors.

                                Back to Stevie, he was pretty darn good in his own rights.
