AFTER RECORD SETTING WEEK 4, ROCKWALL FACES BIGGEST TEST VS LONGVIEW
September 25th, 2018

In a team meeting last Friday, coach Rodney Webb highlighted several examples of Rockwall's unselfishness in a blowout win over Arlington Martin.

One was wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba taking a knee on an interception return so that reserves could see more playing time. Another was nine rushers and 10 pass catchers getting touches.

The showing culminated with a 73-32 win over Martin, marking Rockwall’s second-highest point total in school history. And it showed Webb his team’s potential entering a marquee...read more.

LOBOS CLOSE NON-DISTRICT SLATE AT 4-0
September 23rd, 2018

Haynes King's stat line was impressive in Longview's win over Ruston to move to 4-0 but another stat in the Lobos' passing game was just as good: yards after catch.

King and the Lobo receiving corps combined for a school-record 379 passing yards, a number that was boosted by the yards after catch, a stat would've surely made the by-the-numbers from the win.

"It was a big night, the receivers caught the ball well and the line protected well," Longview head coach John King said. "The biggest thing was the...read more.

LOBOS SET TO CLOSE NON-DISTRICT SLATE AT RUSTON
September 21st, 2018

John King and Jerrod Baugh found themselves in a similar spot earlier this year as both head coaches looked for a game to fill out their respective schedules.

What transpired is a meeting between the two long-time friends and, particularly for Longview, a final non-district test as the Lobos head to Ruston, Louisiana before beginning what proves to be a tough District 11-6A slate next week.

“We were both looking for a Week 4 game and both of us had some possibilities that...read more.

LONGVIEW CROSSES STATE LINES TO FACE RUSTON, LA
September 18th, 2018

Key matchup: Longview defense against the Ruston rushing attack. Ruston has a couple of threats on the ground in Hashan Jackson and Eric Outley, who have combined for just shy of 500 yards on the ground.

Both Jackson and Outley weigh a mere 140 pounds, and could run into issues against a defense the size of Longview.

If the Lobos can force Ruston to pass more, they will have an even clearer path to...read more.

September 17th, 2018

After three-straight weeks of familiar faces, the Longview Lobos now turn their attention across state lines.

Marshall athletic director and head football coach Claude Mathis said Friday’s opponent in Longview have a different offensive look than normal.

“They’re getting into the spread,” Mathis said. “They’re spreading the ball around a little bit. Coach (John) King’s son (Haynes King) is at quarterback and they’re getting in the spread and running the ball differently than what he’s used to doing. He’s usually in the two-back, get in the I-formation and running the ball and get under center but they’re running the ball right now. It’s interesting. They’re getting into the spread.”
