LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) - Longview Lobos Head Coach John King announced due to the latest state and UIL guidelines limiting stadium capacity to 50%, Lobo season tickets will not be renewed during the week of Aug. 3rd.
In a video posted by Longview ISD, King said their plans are to reevaluate the situation at a later date.
