    Thing was for 2016, they had one the best offenses we had ever had before 2018. They were scoring at a crazy clip in 6A that year. Obviously completely different eras and styles of Lobo football to compare. Fun to think about though.

    I don't think Longview wins the game per say, but I do wonder what would've happened if Longview hadn't fumbled against John Tyler in 2016 right before halftime. At the 2 yard line, down 11, against a top ranked team at home and getting the ball to start the second half...and you fumble it to preserve that 11 point lead. I mean it summed up the season in it's entirety to be honest.

    We saw it in the final game against West Brook.
    Clearly, our 2016 defense was nothing to write home about; however as you’ve iterated, our offense was prolific averaging nearly 40 points per game in 6A. We went 6-1 in District that year basically “out track meeting” all of our district foes that is, except JT.

    The reasons 2016 left such a bad taste in my mouth was twofold: 1. The fact that we could manage only 8 wins, which for Longview, is abysmal (substandard) and 2. Losing a game to a team (BW) that we had absolutely no business loosing to. 🤷🏾‍♂️

        • Tbh, that 2016 offense was prolific on paper.

          The senior class that year really wasn't strong...which is part of the reason we had 15 sophomores on varsity.

          That team didnt have 'that guy' at RB. Polk was decent for Longview's standards but a bit of a fumble hazard. Wiley managed the game but probably wouldn't make my top 10 QB list since 2000. They premiered the wrong guy at WR....they force fed Timberlake when it should've been Kamden Perry who was the best WR in the program even at that time as a sophomore. OL was okay...but probably one of JK's weakest ones.

          Now, Jaylin Brown was amazing. But more so in 2017 when Haynes was tossing him the rock.

          The defense and special teams, punt returning in particular, were the worst since 2000.

            Coach Chris Vallery (our OC) was at Kilgore before he came to Longview in 2010....won a championship in 2004 while on the Kilgore coaching staff under his father Mike Vallery who was very successful there until he left in 2010.

            Something to watch for. Hopefully Vallery sticks around, every receiving and passing record in program history has been broken on his watch.
            Phil Castles may be in the mix also. He played at Kilgore and is now available.

                            Yes, in terms of football, that class has been hit pretty hard.

                              WP4L™, we would've dominated Aledo the next week just as Lake Ridge did.
                              Yall might have won but I doubt yall dominate us. Stylistically yall were a much better matchup for us than Lake Ridge.
