Longview got a huge win Sept. 13 in the Battle on the Border at Independence Stadium, 19-13, versus Louisiana powerhouse Neville High School. The win was much-needed after starting the season 0-2 with losses to two top-ranked teams, Lufkin and John Tyler.
"We've seen improvement it in bits and pieces throughout the first two games, albeit very spotty," said head coach John King. "Our defense really withstood the challenge in the second half against Neville. I'm extremely proud of these kids and coaches for the grind they've been through the last two weeks. They're (Neville) big and physical, but our guys certaintly answered the bell."
