Despite tweet, Olive Branch QB still ineligible for Saturday
Despite several media reports today that Olive Branch QB Ross Trail will be eligible for Saturday's game versus Longview, the QB is still ineligible according to the Mississippi High School Activities Association. Today, on Trail's personal Twitter account, he tweeted that he was ruled eligible and would play Saturday versus Longview in Shreveport. This turned out to be false. Trail, who had offers from Louisville and Memphis prior to his junior season, transferred to Olive Branch this season from a school in Arkansas. He was initially ruled eligible by the Mississippi High School Athletic Activities Association, but that decision was reversed Aug. 28. He did play, however, last week because of a temporary court injunction.

tom landry classic allen texas longview coppell eagle stadiumLongview came up short in its first game of the season Aug. 30 at the Tom Landry Classic at Allen's Eagle Stadium, losing to the No. 10 Coppell Cowboys, 32-24. The Lobos were ahead 10-9 at halftime, outgaining the Cowboys 226-105 at the half, but just couldn't hold off Coppell in the second half. With 6:16 left in the third quarter, Stephon Maxey scooped up a Coppell fumble and ran it in for a Lobo TD to make the score 17-9. Coppell answered with a 34-yard FG to make the score at the end of the third 17-12. Longview's QB Dezmond Chumley connected with Dorian Leonard for a 44-yard TD strike to put Longview up 24-12 with 10 minutes left in the game, but Coppell answered with 9-yard TD strike on fourth and five to make the score 24-19 with 8:13 to play. Coppell then recovered an onside kick at midfield and made it to the five yard line. On a fourth down and one yard to go, Longview jumped offside to give the Cowboys a first down on the Lobo three yard line. Coppell scored, but the Lobos denied Coppell a two-point conversion. With three minutes to play, Leonard caught a long Chumley pass that would have put the Lobos at the Coppell 30 yard line, but it was called back on a holding call--the first holding call of the night. Longview then threw an interception and held Coppell to 3-and-out, but the Cowboys kicked a perfect pooch kick to pin the Lobos at their own one yard line with less than three minutes remaining. Longview turned the ball over on downs and Coppell took a knee for three plays, scoring on the fourth, making the final score 32-24. LN-J game story I photos

Before the timed quarters, Longview scored three times in 15 plays, probably the most impressive being a 70-yard TD run by JaMycal Hasty. On Longview's first possession of the first timed quarter, Lobo kicker Andres Perez looked impressive drilling a 31-yard field goal which was Longview's only points of the two timed quarters. JT scored twice in their 15-play set. On the extra point of JT's second score, Longview's Decord Flanagan blocked the kick which was run the other way for an apparent two points only to be called back with a block in the back penalty on the Lobos. Longview starting QB Dezmond Chumley was a perfect 6-for-6 for 97 yards in the first set of plays. For the second set, RB JaMycal Hasty played quarterback, scoring one TD on the ground. Also, WR Dorian Leonard made some impressive catches in the scrimmage, but left the game early with a minor ankle injury. LN-J scrimmage summary I ETSN story I Photos

Congrats to young Lobo team on another great season
Longview finishes the 2011 season at 11-2. Not bad for a team that wasn't even projected to be a district champion contender. Longview won its eighth consecutive district championship this season, with its only other loss (besides Dekaney) coming from 5A power Allen High School. Since Coach John King has taken over as head coach in 2004, Longview's overall record is 91-19 and the Lobos' district record is 43-1. Longview's playoff record is 16-7 since 2004. With numerous starters coming back next year, including QB Bivins Caraway who set the all-time Lobo passing record this season, 2012 should be another great year for the Lobos. For fans, be patient. Nobody expected Longview to make it even close to this far in the playoffs as young as the team was, especially with as many holes as the coaches had to fill this year with underclassmen. Congratulations to the 2011 Lobos, especially the seniors for a great year. 2012 will be lots of fun with an abundance of experienced players returning.
Lobos can't get offense going, lose in third round to Spring Dekaney, 17-6...
11-dekaney tackle 201126-2011...Longview ended its spectacular season with a loss against a one-man show today. That one man, Spring Dekaney running back Trey Williams, stole the show, proving why he is the second-best ranked back in the nation--scoring on a 58-yard run early in the game and a 100-yard kickoff return in the second half. Only a handful of plays all afternoon for the Wildcats were plays that didn't involve handing Williams the ball. The Lobo offense sputtered all afternoon against a stout Dekaney defense, unable to make it into the endzone except for a Deontre Wilson 26-yard TD run in the third quarter. Longview just couldn't catch a break all afternoon with many opportunites to score, but just couldn't capitalize. With seconds left in the third, Dekaney's Williams had a 97-yard TD run called back on a holding penalty. The Lobos then had Dekaney on their own four yard line with a fourth down. Dekaney would then fumble, but the Lobos were held to a three-and-out and missed a field goal with 9:46 left in the game that would have put Longview within 5. Longview had another chance late in the game, needing to go 80-something yards with 2 minutes remaining, but fumbled, resulting in a Dekaney field goal to make the final score 17-6.

Sachse got within 17 points in the second half, but that was as close as they would get.

LISD re-submits higher LHS 'snapshot' enrollment to UIL...
Longview High School was almost guaranteed to be 4A for the next two years in UIL competition, turning in 2,000 students on "snapshot" day Oct. 13. But LISD has resubmitted a new enrollment figure of 2,163. According to Adam Holland, LISD spokesman, the UIL has a new rule that schools must include all spin-off campuses. The new number includes the LEAD Academy, which is a campus of LHS students separate from the main high school campus. This means that the possibility of going 5A next year is a big possibility, depending on the new cut-off for 5A schools. Last year's low number for a 5A school was 2,065 students.
