Lobos Coach King praises fans

King on Lobos

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - When the Lobos meet Beaumont West Brook, it should be understood the Lobos will be loaded with a caravan of fans.

Lobo Nation is strong and ready to claim just its second state championship in 81 years.

King after Saturday’s win over Tascosa of Amarillo couldn’t be more thankful in acknowledging the hometown fans. Winning 45-42 they were every much a 12th man a team could have on their side.

“I said them rabid Lobo fans we got, they love the Lobos.” King said. “I knew we’d have a big crowd tonight, and will be a big one next week, we got great support in our district from our administration to our coaches and teachers, and of course Lobo nation, they love the Lobos. I made the comment last week about this being a Longview team, its Longview built, and you see 'em here in full force.”
