Longview Coaching duo getting it done

    James and Margaret Wright are in there first year of coaching the Longview boys soccer program. James is the head coach and his wife Margaret is his assistant.

  The ironic thing is that the game of soccer brought these two together in the first place. Margaret explains how the two met. "I was coaching soccer at Centenary College,and he was playing professionally for the Shreveport-Bossier Lions and we had a scrimmage. I coached against him while he was playing."

   Tonight the Wright coaching duo led the Lobos into the third round of the state playoffs, where they fell to Plano 3-1. James did not expect his team to excell like they have this season." I didn't expect this. I knew we had talent, but I did not think they would gell together so well."
