Longview, Lee To Shine In National Spotlight

It is a much anticipated showdown this week.
Third-ranked Longview against defending state champion Robert E. Lee. But right now, it seems, two teams going in opposite directions.
The Red Raiders lost their third straight last Friday, while the Lobos hung 52 points on Mesquite Horn. A big district rivalry in front of a national television audience.
"They've been on TV," said Lee Head Coach Mike Owens of his team. "So you know, it's really not that big a deal. The only thing we have to adjust for is TV timeouts. You'll be rolling along and then there's a two and a half minute time out."
"It's a situation we haven't been in before with moving the game to Thursday and playing in front of a national television audience," said Longview Head Coach John King. "We've told the kids all they need to concern themselves with is Robert E. Lee."
The game is scheduled for Thursday night at 7:30 at Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium. It will be televised nationally by Fox Sports Net.
