For the second week in a row the Lobos were able to play everybody on the bench after getting a comfortable lead. Tylan Miller got the Lobos on the board first with a 4-yard touchdown run two minutes into the contest. The Lobos' next score was a 45-yard interception return by Cameron Dean. The Lobo defense was stout in the first half. Miller scored again on a 25-yard run after Karbohn McAdoo forced a fumble to get the Lobos the ball back at the Greenville 25. The Lobos scored once more in the first quarter on a 25-yard pass from Dezmond Chumley to Antonio Carter to put Longview up 28-0 after one period. Longview scored three more times on running plays before halftime, once by Marquies Hunter on a short carry and twice by sophomore running back D'Crayvan Polk on runs of 8 and 9 yards. Greenville's lone score was on a 75-yard run with 7:45 left in the third quarter. Longview's final score was by another sophomore, Traveion Webster, on a rushing touchdown. With the win, the Lobos improve to 3-2 overall and 2-0 in District 15-5A play. Longview will face Marshall Friday, Oct. 10, at home.

"We've seen improvement it in bits and pieces throughout the first two games, albeit very spotty," said head coach John King. "Our defense really withstood the challenge in the second half against Neville. I'm extremely proud of these kids and coaches for the grind they've been through the last two weeks. They're (Neville) big and physical, but our guys certaintly answered the bell."
Longview is off Sept. 20 and begins District 15-5A play Sept. 26 at Pine Tree's Pirate Stadium.
Longview plays tough, but falls to No. Lions, 41-25
Longview head coach John King told his team after its 41-25 loss to the No. 2-ranked John Tyler Lions Sept. 5 that the season isn't over. It's only the beginning. "These first few games will prepare them for better outcomes during the rest of the season. They played their tails off tonight," King said. "I'm extremely proud of them." Longview was without several key starters on both sides of the ball due to suspensions earlier in the week, but it didn't stop Longview from making a valliant effort--even those who were forced to play positions that they weren't used to. One of the highlights for the Lobos was junior Marquies Hunter who rushed for more than 100 yards in the second half alone. Longview drops to 0-2 on the young season and will travel to Shreveport Saturday, Sept. 13, to face the Neville Lions in an 8 p.m. kickoff for the Battle on the Border at Independence Stadium. LN-J JT
