This year’s meeting marks the 108th time these two Texas powerhouses will have met. Longview has dominated the series in recent years, but second year head coach at Marshall Claude Mathis will be looking to continue his rebuild of the Mavericks and leap forward with a win over their arch rival Lobos from Longview.
Longview had a hugely successful 2017, eventually losing in the Texas state semi-final. They’ll be looking to continue that excellence and build on it with a win over their rivals, the Mavericks from Marshall.
Star QB and son of Coach King, Haynes King had a huge night for the Lobos from Longview against their bitter rivals, the Marshall Mavericks. King rushed for two touchdown and threw for another two touchdowns, helping lead Longview to a dominant 60-14 victory over Marshall. Jessie Anderson became King's favorite target throughout the night, leading the team in receiving with three catches for 79 yards. All in all, it was business as usual for Longview, who have dominated Marshall in recent years and, once again, look to be a force in Texas high school football this season.
