Lobos Look To Reverse The SG Curse

In 2003, the South Garland Colonels defeated the Longview Lobos in the first round of the playoffs in overtime.

In 2005, the Lobos were the 15th ranked team in the nation, and again South Garland ended their season in the first round.

This Saturday the two teams will meet yet again and Longview looks to change their fate against South Garland.

The Lobos stomped W.T. White in a 34-3 victory in the bi-district playoffs. Heading into round two, the Lobos face a colonels team that has an identical record.

"We've got to make sure we take care of the Lobos just like we have all year," head coach John King said. "If we take care of ourselves, the game will take care of itself. We can't worry too much about what's happened in the past we just need to worry about the present."

Longview will play South Garland Saturday at 8 p.m. under the big lights of Texas Stadium.

    Jackson is back for Lufkin.Jackson is back for Lufkin.

    Like Longview, Lufkin is always talented. Before the Panthers begin District 12-6A action, they'll play a loaded East Texas schedule featuring the Lobos in week 1, followed by Nacogdoches and John Tyler. Normally a 7 and 4 campaign would be considered a success, but not in Panther nation. In fact, despite making the playoffs every year, Lufkin hasn't advanced past the first round since 2012.

    Our Red Zone Rundown continues with the other two Class 6A programs in East Texas. In District 11-6A with John Tyler and Tyler Lee, who we featured Monday night, Longview figures to challenge for the league title in 2017. In fact, the Lobos and Lions shared the district championship a year ago. It's no secret, Longview is used to winning and it does so by running the football and playing sound defense.
