  • Mike Says: The Lobos are always a good team and this year will be no exception. Last year, they lost their starting QB in first game and still made the Regionals. They will be a very tough Division II team this year. Look for them to win the district title and then battle with Austin Westlake and Austin Lake Travis for the Regional title.
  • Chris Says: Longview is still representing well in their move back up to 5A and despite being one of the smallest teams in District 12-5A, they are still in the thick of the district title race.  The Lobos graduated a lot of talent, but bring back a solid passing game that will light up opponents lacking DB skill.  Expect another fine playoff run.

    There are a ton of mistakes on this, just fyi.
    King is 2nd on the coaching win list at Longview behind just Doug Cox (120 wins).
    Longview is 53-36-1 in the post season.
    Longview’s overall record is 655-329-52.
    Don’t get why someone would also say “Longview’s move up to 5A,” as well since we’ve only been outside of the top classification in Texas High School football two seasons out of the past 81 seasons.

What are your thoughts?
