FOOTBALL, FAMILY BRING HEALING
June 16th, 2016

His smile was infectious, matched only perhaps by his determination and fight on the field.

A competitor and a warrior, he had a knack for wiping the smile off the opposition's face, often thwarting or shutting down whatever or whoever stood in the way.

"That smile ... ," said Longview head coach John King. "I'll never forget that. He was……read more.

NOTES FROM LONGVIEW'S GREEN/WHITE GAME
May 17th, 2016

Roshodrick Harmon wasted little time showing the move to cornerback is strong one by appearing out of nowhere for a PBU on the first play of the day. Harmon appears to have packed on some weight this offseason.

From there, the offense failed to gain traction with a quick stop on a run up the middle, followed by a dropped pass for the first reset.

Enter Kendrevian White. His first carry of the day went for 20 yards. He was a bull all day, as he has been throughout the spring. With White at……read more.

FORMER COACH COX INDUCTED INTO HALL OF HONOR
February 22nd, 2016

Protruding out of the grass on a hot, spring day as the Lobos went through their spring bootcamp, his players, jogging in formation, saw it.

Doug Cox, back peddling ahead of the back, didn't see it.

"They all saw this concrete block, in between the track and the field, that was an electrical outlet," Cox recalled. "Well I was going backwards, hit that thing, rolled over and right back on to my feet.

"They all got a laugh out of hit. I didn't see them laugh at the time but they sure did get a kick out of it."

It was 1974, Cox's first year as the head football coach at Longview and the first year of……read more.
