The Longview Lobos go into the state playoffs on a roll.
Longview upset unbeaten DeSoto in the regular season finale on FOX Sports Southwest.
Jack Stallard, Longview News-Journal sports editor, told KETK's Danny Elzner this about the Lobos;
"That was a great win for the Lobos. You need to see how that carries over. It could have a negative effect if the Lobos aren't careful. I think they'll be OK. It's playoff time. It's the time the Lobos really shine."
Stallard also talked about top-ranked Chapel Hill getting their injured starting quarterback back;
"This is great for Chapel Hill. They didn't miss a beat without Avery Saenz. They've got such great athletes over there. The receiver did a good job at quarterback. Now he's going back to receiver. That's another weapon for Saenz. I don't see anybody beating the Bulldogs."
