Jack Stallard is the Sports Editor of the Lngview News Journal.
He talked with KETK's Danny Elzner about Longview's upcoming game this Friday night at Lufkin.
Stallard said "This is a big game for both teams. Longview beat Marshall last week. Lufkin beat Nacogdoches. Those were tune-ups. Lufkin and Longview is a great rivalry. When these teams meet there's usually a lot on the line. This is where you see where you really are as a football team. For Longview, this is a tough place to play. Longview is 0-and-4 under coach John King at Abe Martin Stadium. Not many teams go down there and come out with a win. If Longview can do that, it might be a springboard to some really good things for the Lobos."
