GAME DAY: LONGVIEW AT BEAUMONT WEST BROOK
November 11th, 2016


It’s Longview Lobo Game Day!

Your Longview Lobos take on the Beaumont West Brook Bruins from Dr. CA Thomas Multipurpose Stadium in the 1st meeting between the two schools.

GAME PREVIEW:
With the closing of the 107th regular season of football at Longview High, the Lobos turn to their 42nd appearance on the UIL State Playoffs as they travel to Beaumont to take on the West Brook Bruins. The trip to Beaumont, despite being co-champions of District 11-6A, will be Longview’s longest ever trip for a first round playoff game. Previously, the longest was two trips to Waco (1983 at Floyd Casey Stadium against Killeen Ellison and 2003 at Waco ISD Stadium against South Garland). The trip to Beaumont also marks the longest road trip for the Lobos (a little over 200 miles) since Longview traveled to Midland in 2000 to take on Cedric Benson and the two-time defending State Champion Midland Lee Rebels. The Lobos will enter the playoffs for the 13th consecutive season, all under head coach John King. The last time Longview missed the post season came in that 2000 season, when the Lobos finished 3-7 overall. Last season, Longview reached the State Quarterfinals for the first time since their Semi-Final appearance in 2010. The Lobos fell 56-53 to eventual State Finalist Mansfield Lake Ridge as the Lobos missed a game-tying field goal in the final 15 seconds of the contest. Despite it being the first time the Lobos reached round 4 in five seasons, Longview continued improved their streak of bi-district victories to 10. John King is 11-1 all-time in Bi-District games as head coach of Longview. The Lobos have also advanced to at least the third round of the UIL playoffs in 9 of the 12 seasons under coach King (failing to do so in 2005, 2006 & 2014). Standing in their way of an 11th straight bi-district victory is an extremely unfamiliar opponent in the West Brook Bruins of Beaumont. The Lobos have faced just one other opponent from Beaumont ISD in their history, the Beaumont Royal Purples. The Lobos and Purples met all the way back in 1940 and in 1942, with Longview’s lone trip to Beaumont being in the 1942 season. Longview won both games against the Royal Purples (7-0 and 20-7). Beaumont West Brook comes into the contest under 5th year head coach Kevin Flanigan, who’s currently experiencing his best season as head coach of the Bruins. Entering the 2016 season, Flanigan’s record stood at 21-21 overall, with four straight seasons of no more than 6 and no less than 4 losses. The last time West Brook themselves finished an entire season with 9 wins came in 2009, when the Bruins advanced to the 5A Division I Regional round. West Brook will be looking to win a 10th game of the season for the first time since 2007, when they finished 10-2. The Bruins will be looking to win their first playoff game since a bi-district victory over Pasadena Dobie in 2010. West Brook has lost four consecutive playoff games since the win. Only one of the four losses has been within 20 points. The winner will move onto the Area Round to take on Lake Highlands or Lakeview Centennial in the Area Round.
