Since Longview is one of the top 5 winningest 5A programs in Texas, thought they should be represented here.

I know we still have other message boards and live on smoaky.com, but here's another vehicle to discuss all that is Longview.

Welcome back to 5A.

Many of us felt like we never really left. All of the non-district opponents were 5A and our district had 2 ex-5A schools. Many of our playoff opponents were ex-5A or now 5A. The crowds were good although some of the venues were small. Now we get Mesquite schools who don't travel.

Not saying he will get starting nod, but he gets my vote. Although highlights are just that.

By the way, JV squad went undefeated. Had one tie to Marshall.

The QB position will be the most heated battle this Spring.

Deontre Wilson is a great QB..but 2 others are also great. Peter Robertson and Blain Tomlinson are also guys to look after. Peter plays WR now..but he played QB until he was moved to Varsity..and did an heck of an Job. Blain Tomlinson brings speed and quickness to the table..he had more snaps on varsity at QB then both Robertson(because he started out wide) and Wilson. I dont know if people remember...but Blain threw an TD in the waxahachie game..that really impressed me.

From Smoaky.com:

"Former Longview High School and Pine Tree High School football coach Clint Humphries passed away on Thursday at the age of 69. Humphries was 21-9-1 as head coach at Longview from 1971-1973, and remained athletic director until the late-80's. He became head coach at Pine Tree and went 15-25 in four-years with the Pirates. Humphries was also a former member of the Longview I.S.D. school board. He is survived by his wife Nancy, and son Randy. He is also survived by three grandchildren."

Humphries was coach of the Lobos when LISD finally fully integrated more than 15 years after the Supreme Court's ruling that declared segregation within schools unconstitutional. When Coach Humphries arrived with his staff in 1971, he possessed experience teaching at integrated high schools, but he was not prepared for what awaited him. Police were stationed throught the campus and fights broke out regularly at the four-way stop in the center of the campus. He told his players, "There is no black and white. There is only green and white." Many parents took their kids out of the system. He changed the colors from kelly green and white to forest green and white, and added gold. He told the black players, it was to add a part of their history from Womack (Mary C. Womack, the previous all-black high school).

30 of the incoming 40 seniors quit during the '71 season. Most left because of Humprhies high-intensity military training style. The Lobos only won 3 games that year, but Humphries repeatedly pounded the motto "Only the strong survive." In 1972, the Lobos went 10-0, won district and went to the Cotton Bowl to face Plano. Plano had played 23 playoff games, winning 19 of them. Longview's previous playoff game was in 1967 when the lost to Richardson. Plano defeated Longview 27-0.

Five weeks later, the district approved a bond for a new Longview High School. The bond passed easily. Including 1972, the Lobos have since had 35 winning seasons and 20 district titles. Humprhries was a part of that growth. He challenged kids from different backgrounds and cultures to put aside their differences and prejudices and allow themselves to be a part of something special.

Vondrell was "arguably" the best RB to ever walk through the halls of Longview.

I must admit, I thought he would be an all star in college. Perhaps his biggest problem was because he went to Texas where there were already alot of RB's waiting to start.

I hope he gets to start next year..but I doubt it after his latest inccident.:(

I don't know if it's so much the stable of backs or the situations those backs were put into at TEXAS by the offensive coordinator (Greg Davis). TEXAS has been running pre-dominately out of zone read or spread since Vince Young. The only back during that era that had any continued success was Jamaal Charles. Now I hear that they may allow Gilbert to operate more from under center which should benefit backs that haven't run out of spread in high school (Whaley, McGee, Whittaker). I think McGee #s are decent when you look at the situations he was put into. Early he was a short yardage back, but still has more yards per attempt than either Newton or Whittaker. He also has more TDs and longer runs from scrimmage. That being said, I think there are other factors causing him playing time (Greg Davis). I don't think the latest event will help him, but it could awake the beast in him. I think this year, it will be more of the Whaley show, with all 3 other backs (Newton, Whittaker & McGee) seeing limited action. Hills should also get some looks. Therefore, all need to seize the opportunities that arise. Ultimately, it will be the Traylon Shead show and Whittaker and Newton will see little action (especially if TEXAS is able to recruit Malcom Brown), but McGee will be gone by the time that happens. The fact that Newton does well as a receiver out of the backfield at TEXAS says more about their lack of finding a quality TE than anything. Normally that is the last option.

Analyzing the offense.. first week of spring practice.

QB position:
I can not give a good conclusion to who deserves to be our starting QB for 2010, because they both are that good. LaDarrin Robertson(6'3 215) is probably the most heavily reruited player on the team. Most people knows him as a Wideout the past 2 years, but he played QB as a freshman. This is typical at Longview, because all Qb's here go through it (Aaron Johnson for example). He has showed good Power and Accuracy this week. He isn't the quickest when he scrambles, but its his power that is getting him by. Blain Tomlinson(5'10 170) isn't the tallest QB, but he sure is a playmaker(some compare him to 05' QB..Carlin Freeman). There is no way to desribe him..except that he throws like Carlin, but runs like Aaron. I don't mind either one of them to start..because who ever doesn't get the QB job..will play WR. Both are also good at that.

RB/FB position:
Jhaston Faggans(5'10 170), Dakota Anthony(5'6 160), DaCoreyan Blackenship(5'8 190) are all beasty at RB and FB. I expect them to be similar to our former 3 headed horses..McCray, Hunt and Shaw. All hit the whole very quick and have good speed.

WR Position:
As noted in the QB position, Blain Tomlinson and LaDarrin Robertson have been getting reps at both QB and WR. They both are doin great at WR, but there are 3 other WR's who are really good, but I haven't been able to participate in spring for reasons such as track. Eric Hawkins(5'11 177) runs a 4.34 as a sophomore..and was really a force on JV this year. Same story with DT Jackson(6' 175). Both WR have D1 looks. The other WR is Javorous Poole(5'8 160)...who saw more time at varsity WR than any of the three WR's.

TE Position:
Brandon Olson(6'3 220) and Dmarjai Devine(6'4 190) will be a force at TE. The both block real well, and catch real well.

The O-Line:
CJ Green(6'5 290) anchors the O-Line. He and the o-line have been blocking with alot of heart this whole week.

wolfpack4life
05-09-2010, 06:59 PM
Analyzing the defense... first week of spring practice.

Note: This has been the best defense I have seen at least since the 04' team.

The D-Line:
As every knows, We lost all Dlinemen this year. Thomas Jones(6' 200) has made the move from LB to DE. He has really been doing great. Britton Eastburn(6'1 220) has been having issues with his back..but he is expected to be the other DE. Clark Orren(6'2 220) and Joseph Wilson(6'4 230) are expected to take the inside..and both have been getting to the QB real quick.

LB Core:
Diop Johnson(5'8 170), Cameron Jones(5'11 190) and Anthony Wiley(6'2 205) have really been laying licks on those RB's. Expecting big things from them.

Secondary:
Joe Brown(5'10 180) is really something special. I sure feel sorry for any individual that runs his way...ill leave it at that. He also is being heavily recruited according to scout.com. Other people that have been good are Jordan Burton(6'1 180)..who had D1 intentions according to Rivals.com. The two corners expected to start next year are Brian Tomlinson (5'10 175) and Ja Quale Darden(5'9 170) haven't been able to catch Darden in action, due to track.(He made state BTW)..but I have managed to catch Brian Tomlinson and action and he has been doing real good. Stick to Wideouts real good.

Is Deontre Wilson getting any reps at QB? I think it would be terrible to leave him on JV his junior year and not be exposed to varsity competition if even as a backup. I would really like to see Lobos QB position set for next two seasons, but if Wilson doesn't earn it then so be it. I don't think neither Robertson nor Tomlinson will be recruited at the QB position.

I'm with you man, I want to see Deontre at QB too, but he has been getting reps at WR, and he is doing good. I think that he should start at QB for several reasons. His size 6' 205 as pretty decent for a QB. He is also top 100 on the nationalunderclassmen.com list. If he played QB, you could put both Robertson and Tomlinson out wide...and they both are effective out wide.

Hey Lobobooster..

I saw Deontre Wilson get his first reps at QB today and I must say..He is a true playmaker. Im all for him for QB based off what I witnissed today. I believe Wilson(6' 205) should start QB..while Robertson(6'3 215) and Tomlinson(5'10 170) go out wide.

I agree. King is all about playing upperclassmen unless talent purely neccesitates otherwise. If Wilson clearly upstages Robertson and Tomlinson, then he should get the starting nod. Just think of the possibilities with a back-up QB at WR. If we had played our best passer in title game, we might not still be listening to crap about not winning since FDR.

Give each ample opportunities and let the best man win, regardless of class, parent influence, etc. The team, the school and the fan base deserve no less.

Yes. Shannon Polk is ok, but not as an effective runner as Jhaston Faggans and Dakota Anthony. JaQuale Darden has been out due to track, so Jimmerson has been feeling in. He has good size to him. There are also 2 other transfers that I know of..I don't really know his name, but he is a wideout out of Monroe La..and Dustin Williams, a SS from Maine.

Hey Wolf keep us updated on Shannon. He is my nephew and I am curious if will he adapt to Lobo football. I was hoping he would get moved to another position because of the depth at running back.

Don't get baited by that pompous scottie2 wannabee. Anybody that posts over 26K times is obviously full of themselves and unemployed. Like I said before, it doesn't matter what anybody thinks of Longview or East Texas, but themselves.

IMO, Titles are as much a product of bracketing as they are about excellance. They are equally determined by your district, your region and the UIL. The state title that Longview does have, regardless of how old it is, was played when there were no classes. Best in state was truely the best in state.

I'l get responses on my comments, but refuse to be baited.
Trust me booster, I don't believe anything Farmer ever post..because he doesn't know anything. How do I know? These are comments made by the idiot himself:

"Longview was scared to play John Curtis this year."

" Longview's current schedule only has two teams that are worthy opponents"

" He called useless scared to play against an out of state team"

And last but not least..

"LONGVIEW IS NOT A POWERHOUSE"

Longview not traveling to play JC was more about economics than anything. Our district schedule alone is probably doubling last year's travel budget. Plus we don't need a non-district road game. We're playing only four home games. Also, if we were scared, what's that make the other 250 odd Texas 5A teams who won't come into LOBO Stadium?

If you are going to use my name at least be accurate with it. Never said Longview was scared of playing against OOS competition. Just said they ran scared when Curtis called them for a game in Baton Rouge.

Still waiting to hear about this killer competition that Longview played.

I laugh everytime you bring up John Curtis. John Curtis at least had the guts to bring their show to Longview. It's a shame that Longview ran scared when Curtis asked them to come down to River Ridge.

Where did I say only 2 teams on Longviews schedule are worthy opponents? I said non-district but don't let the facts escape you. I stand by that too. JT has not been consistent enough to be called a power or elite, Marshall is a good team and thats it. Lufkin is a team who has been going home early from the playoffs for the last 5 years. That's hardly killer competition compared to the rest of the state


So let me ask you this, when John Curtis called to ask you to come play them at their home, what did your coach say? That's what I thought. Instead he schedules a cupcake at home in Natchitoches Central. Funny though, they turn down a chance to go down to the Bayou. Why do you think that was? What was Natchitoches Central anyway, 1-9?

Outside of Abilene and Allen in the non-district portion I am not really impressed. John Tyler hasn't been consistent lately and Marshall and Lufkin are hardly powers anymkore either

I would've liked to repay them for driving up here, honestly, but the past 2 years and this year especially...it just doesn't make sense from our end.

As said earlier, the travel budget is going to be huge this season. And it just doesn't make sense for us to add even more ridiculous travel when we have 3 regional teams willing to play us (unlike 08 when JT backed out on us).

I think what makes it a bigger game is that all 3 games are rivalry games. Granted it's not like we can schedule a Abilene or Allen type team every single game (not like we haven't tried to in the past).

Losing all of our players from last season, we get to face Marshall and John Tyler that also lost a ton from last season. I have no idea what Lufkin has coming back, but I'm sure they'll be back with talent (obviously nothing like their early 2000 days). All three are definitely worthy opponents though.

It's not anything that Highland Park doesn't face though and in light of the discussion about worhty opponents, one knocked HP while praising their own schedule and when you really look at it, Longview doesn't play the killer scheudle that one of your posters and another are making it out to be when compared to the program that was referred to as a joke

How is that in anyway even comparable to Marshall, JT, Lp, Allen, and Abilene?

Red Oak/Frisco Liberty is definitely not on par with Marshall/JT/Lp. I'll give you that Coppell and Newman Smith are/were good teams but they are still a step under Allen and Abilene.

Last year, Longview did not play Abilene so please do not compare this years schedule to a team from another year. However, I believe Abilene along with Allen were two of the teams I did say were actually legit. The only people who think Marshall is legit seem to be from Eas Texas. Marshal..

The Marshall/Longview rivalry is storied (100 games & counting). I know Marshall really gets up to play Longview. I give cred to a school that produced probably the greatest high school football player in the history of Texas high school football. I guess that rivalry pales in comparison to the HP/Bishop Lynch match-up.

And regardless of what Lufkin has done lately in the playoffs, playing Lufkin at Abe Martin is no easy task. Just like playing Longview at Lobo Stadium has proven to be no easy task.

Spare me on the whole "rivalry" crap, Marshall is not a great football team, Lufkin has proven that they are average or just above average too.

Farmer my boy, 2 wins and 460 points never even made the playoffs..so how could they have a winning record in title games, much less have twice as many state championships as Longview?

no that wasnt a false statement. what is false is how you are misleading what i said by making it seem like i was saying JT blew them out by the score. no they didnt because the back-ups had to play to.

Eric Hawkins dressed out for the 1st time this week...and man he blows by those defenders so well. He hardly drops a ball, unless the ball is simply thrown poorly.

Also, another RB has been really impressive. Khody Hubbard(5'8 180) has really been doing well..seems like another re-make of Keylon Shaw.

Is QB spot still open? Has anybody looked markedly better? How's Wilson doing?

Attended Allen's Spring game. I know 7 on 7 is still to come, but now they are looking at 4 QBs. #26 (left hander) looks better at this point, #2 has potential, #10 also WR, and #11. Better WR for them are #84 and #14. Better TBs are #7 and #32. #21 and #20 also got looks. OL/DL once again look good sized averaging above 230. Punting needs alot of work and kickoffs will never touch endzone with a big wind behind them. Defense is better at this point. Not much team speed.

They are still constantly trying him out wide and letting Robertson and Tomlinson get snaps, while Tomlinson goes out wide on some occasions.


Robertson has been the only QB getting full time snaps.

IMO Deontre Wilson is the way to go. If he doesn't get the Job, thats a big mistake.

I agree. It's a waste to only have him starting one year in varsity. But with what LV has at WR, maybe it doesn't matter. Whoever throws the better deep ball should be back there since I see Hawkins getting behind the secondary quite alot.

King said his team — particularly the offense — has not had a good spring, especially this past week.

"It's been a bad week. We've taken some steps backwards," King said. "There are four areas of concern: inconsistency in our lineup, missed assignments, a lack of effort and a lack of leadership."

For those that have been out there, has it really been THAT bad?

I can't really remember King ever really slamming a team of his like that before, so it caught me way off guard when I read that this morning.

O and just fyi, Wilson isn't even mentioned in the paper today when it comes to starting QB...unlike Robertson and Tomlinson.

Caught that this morning in the LNJ. Yes Robertson and Tomlinson are getting the most publicity...but you have to see this QB in person.


Heck he isn't one of the national top 100 underclassmen athletes for nothing. He probably could have been the first PURE QB to go D1 since Joel Armstrong(Aaron was an athlete). I doubt that will happen, now that he will only get to see one year starting at QB.

I also saw article in LNJ and viewed Spring game yesterday. Was really impressed with Robertson as a runner. Has a punishing style. The reps that Wilson had were better than Tomlinson's. He threw a good deep ball that probably would have been caught if they would have been playing on a better surface. I was really impressed with Faggins. That kid is a burner. Also, will run through tacklers. I think what is needed now is 7 on 7. Anybody heard if and where Longview is competing?

I would also suggest that the slackers and or key players attend DeSoto Spring game next week. That would bring them back to realiazation that nothing is given to you unless you earn it. At this point though, Longview is ahead of Allen.

Perhaps the most shocking thing about the spring game was the offense alone. They didnt really have a good Spring in the passing game, but that improved in the spring game. Shannon Polk looked like DaCedrick Hunt...he is a bruiser. Our running game is nothing to worry about..5 headed sharks running the ball in Dakota Anthony, Jhaston Faggans, Khody Hubbard, Shannon Polk, and DeCoreyan Blakenship...Jhaston and Shannon playing RB, while the others split time at FB.(Although Dakota Anthony plays both positions).

There are alot of head hunters on defense..Ill leave it at that.:D

Attended DeSoto spring game 5/28. Only spring game I've ever been to that charges admission ($3). Also, had PA system. But were not calling names, only numbers. And at this point, there were alot of duplicate #s.

Ryan Polite (#7) has a good arm. Has instinct of when to step up in pocket and can throw 40+ yards on the run. Throws rather than run, but does have quickness. Might be one of best QBs in DFW. Easily as good as Walsh at Guyer or McDaniel at Coppell. Did overthrow alot on deep routes, but he's got all summer to work on timing with receivers.

Cameron White (#1) is very good. Advertised at 4.4, but not sure he's that fast. He does have very good hands though. Made a catch over his right shoulder going down right sideline that was exceptional.

Has some very good TBs. #17 and #2 were very quick. #7 was also very good to outside. #31 was best inside runner.

Backup QB was #11. Better runner than Polite, but definite drop when he's in. Other QB #8 got no reps.

OL/DL are big, but there's alot of table weight on some players. Good LB that blew up plays sometimes. However, I do think this team can be run on.

K Manuel Contreras #10 may be the best kicker I've seen recently. Good height on PATs. Good from 40+ yards on FG. He never kicked off although.

One last thing. Stadium is nive sized. 10K dbl decked on home side. However, visitor side is about 4500. I figure band/drill team will eat up one section which leaves about 3800 for fans. Good parking on visitor side, but small street in from Hampton with 4-way stop before stadium. About 8 miles south of I-20. Right on Eagle. Best place to eat is Ojeda's about 1/2 mile south of I-20 on Hampton on the right going to stadium.

Aaron Johnson had an outstanding game! Caught almost everything thrown his way, plus 2 TDs and against fellow all-stars. Confirmed my belief that things might have been different had he been allowed to play more WR during last year's state title game. :(

Would've been this game's MVP had coach Bob Shipley spent a little more time on special teams coaching.:mad: Always thought Shipley was an overrated coach. More interested in garnering TV time than anything. IMO, only reason he coached in this game was because of his connection to FSSW.

See ya'll in a few weeks and drive safe now!

Not dogging, just makin' assessment based on attending your spring game.

Was impressed with TBs #32 & #7. And WRs #84 and #14.
Thought Pierce #26 was better QB although undersized. Morris #2 is probably the choice, but not a dual threat. I believe he threw 2 picks also. Defense looked good, but usually does in spring. Punter line drived alot which could spell return-city.

But thought CHILL and Longview were much quicker even without players involved in track at that time.

Should be a good game and lookin' forward to it.

Longview-Hallsville scrimmage moved to Hallsville

A football scrimmage between Longview and Hallsville on Aug. 20 has been to moved to Hallsville's Bobcat Stadium.

The scrimmage was originally to be held at Lobo Stadium, but Longview ISD Director of Extracurricular Activities Pat Collins said he is not 100 percent sure the stadium will be ready. Extensive construction was done on Lobo Stadium in the offseason. The construction forced Longview's soccer teams to play their home games at their grass-field facility this past season while Longview's track and field team was unable to practice on the stadium's track this past spring.

Collins said Lobo Stadium will be ready by Aug. 27, when it hosts a neutral-site game between Texas High and Vidor. Longview plays its first home game of the 2010 season against John Tyler on Sept. 3.

Watching the Spring game I would think the same things as you. I was not impressed with the Eagles at any of our last 3-4 Spring games. Even 2008.

I'm thinking spring was last year and now it's a new year. I know Chill and Longview are quicker. We'll just have to wait a few mor weeks to see how it all plays out.

Lobos' Robertson Impresses in Scrimmage

http://www.news-journal.com/sports/local/article_dae9ed4c-a945-5a7a-9bf8-8ee0d40732f0.html
Saw it in the paper this morning, also attended the scrimmage.

The passing game looked very sharp. This is the sharpest I've ever seen from the Lobos. Period. For the first time in a while, Longview won't rely on that "go to" reciever. We actually have a core this year, and everyone of them are quick, fast and knows how to catch. (Not to mention the two tall TE's we have). 2 of the wideouts are on Rivals.com (Eric Hawkins6'1 175, DT Jackson 6'2 180). Eric recently attended a UT camp, and impressed the coaches. Not to mention, he runs a 4.34 40.
http://footballrecruiting.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1098385
DT Jackson had a good showing also. Don't believe he had a dropped pass.
LaDarrin Robertson did a great job at QB. He spreaded it out everywhere. He has great pocket presence, and with his 6'3 205 frame, he has great vison also. If he continues his succesful leadership, IMO, as far as pure QB, he could be the best QB that King has coached at Longview.

Maybe Tech should let him get some passing reps as well.;)

The O-lineman did good, especially on pass blocking. Running blocking was ok, but running the ball wasn't as effective. (Portially, because star RB JHaston Faggans didn't play, due to a knee injury). But there were good runs. There certainly is alot of depth at RB.

Now, the defense. I wasn't really impressed with the D-Line and LB corp. They may have just had a bad night, but I've seen better through practices and spring. The secondary did well. Even though 100 yards of passing was givin' up, the safeties Joe Brown and Jordan Burtan still managed to get two picks.

Definitely can. Key for a Longview fan (I already see a couple on Smoaky freakin) is to not freak out too much.

It'll take some time to get things rolling.

That said, I fully expect Longview to come out in the 2nd half and control it...like they have in previous seasons. Hopefully with a couple more Marshall turnovers to help us along ;)

Last year it was 21-21 at the half. (I believe, maybe 21-20). That was when Longview got up 21 early then Marshall came back. But then Marshall turned it over 5 straight drives.

It was close in '08 as well. I want to say it was a touchdown difference. Before Longview, again, just blew it open.

Neither coach seemed to concerned about the brawl:


When you have 16-, 17-year-old kids out there, we have to remember that sometimes," said Marshall head coach Thedrick Harris. "Sometimes tempers will flare and sometimes thing will happen. It's just unfortunate and it cost us a ball game."

Marshall never seemed to recover from losing French, its starting quarterback, struggling to move the ball after that point.

Longview piled up three rushing touchdowns after, pulling away in the third.

"These kids are going to get after it and they're going to talk to one another," said Longview head coach John King. "I just hope nothing else ever comes of it. It got out of hand. It's a shame that it happened."


Pretty safe to say no other punishment will be assessed. Which means it probably happens again next year.

Um wow. Major league crazy indeed.

I wouldn't put Longview in the top 10, much less top 5.

Right now, the Lobos should NOT be in any of the polls. I would even venture to say they would not deserve to be in this site's top 25. I'm a Lobo fan through and through, but this team is young and unproven at the 5A level. Only time will tell if the Lobos deserve the accolades. Let's see where they stand after running the gauntlet of pre-district games. And the district games will be no slouch either. By the time the playoffs come around, should the Lobos make it, they will definitely be battle-tested.

Pretty sure I'm going to shoot myself if I read even one more Longview thread on Smoaky. Good Lord.

Good results again from the underclassmen.

After a 56-14 win against Marshall last week, the Longview JV knocks off the John Tyler JV 33-0. They start the season 2-0 by outscoring their opponents 89-14 in their first two games 0_0.

And for the Freshmen....following a 54-16 victory against the Mavs, they knocked off the Lion Freshmen 38-8 to also improve to 2-0 on season. They've outscored their opponents 92-22.

Extremely impressive starts.

Read somewhere about a freshman who's even quicker than Eric Hawkins. Any idea what his name is?
What are some of the names to look out for off of JV?

Anyway, it's GAME DAY!

Question and Answer session with Coach John King following Longview's 14-28 home loss to Tyler John Tyler (4A) leading into road match-up with Allen (AP 5A #5 ranked):

http://www.news-journal.com/sports/local/article_4fa14117-7681-5e8a-b989-050b0c381243.html

Questions I would have liked to have been asked:

- Why do you play your 3rd or 4th string QB after Robertson's injury rather than, say Deontre Wilson?
- Why was D.T. Jackson kept out of all non-3rd down plays till late in 3rd QTR?
- What was Eric Hawkins status since he had very little PT?
- Is it plan for the year to have Jenkins punt or are there other options?
- What was the biggest problem with run blocking?
- How did you feel about special teams play?

Here's part of an interview with Allen Coach Tom Westerberg in local PlanoStar newspaper:

That rationale will be put to the test once again at 7:30 p.m. Friday as Allen faces Longview in the Eagles’ first home game since October of last year.

“We haven’t been here in awhile,” Westerberg jokingly said of the team’s return to Eagle Stadium. “Our home openers are always exciting; we have great crowds, a great student body and usually a good opponent. And whenever the kids put on those blue uniforms, I think you get a little something extra from them.”

The opponent portion of Westerberg’s statement holds to form this season as Longview comes to town. The Lobos lost last week to Tyler John Tyler, 28-14, but still bring plenty to the field.

“Longview is very athletic,” Westerberg said, “much like Cedar Hill.”

However, the similarities on offense end there.

“Longview is going to run the football right at you out of the I-formation, a lot like what Trinity does,” Westerberg said. “Longview ran the ball 46 times in their first game and then got a little bit away from that against John Tyler, so I expect to see them getting back to that game plan a bit more.”

That means plenty of physical play and a chance for the Allen front seven to assert itself.

“I’m excited to see how our guys up front do,” Westerberg said. “I think we have a physical defense, but we haven’t been up against a team like this yet, so it’s hard to be certain.”

What is more certain is what the Lobos bring to the table defensively.

“It’s nothing flashy,” Westerberg said. “They just play hard and come right at you.”

The key to Friday’s game could very well be turnovers. Longview put the ball on the carpet five times in 2008’s 21-7 loss to Allen while the Eagles had two fumbles that led directly to scores in last season’s 28-25 loss to the Lobos.

“Any time you get in a big game like this,” Westerberg said, “if you make a bunch of mistakes, you aren’t going to win.”

A win Friday would give Allen its first clean non-district slate since 2007.

“As competitors, you want to win every game you play in,” Westerberg said, “so of course we want to win our home opener and we would love to be 3-0 going into district.”



Hopefully, their home opener goes like ours. But, I doubt it.:(
