Lobos finalize 2016 football schedule

Last month's realignment by the University Interscholastic League may have bumped Longview up to a larger classification, but the non-district slate still features some traditional Lobo rivals.

Athletic Director/Head Football Coach John King released the official 2016 schedule Wednesday, March 2, adding that the increase in travel caused by being moved to District 11-6A with some Dallas-area schools will be somewhat offset by staying a bit closer to home prior to league play.

The Lobos join John Tyler, Robert E. Lee, Mesquite, Mesquite-Horn, North Mesquite, Rockwall and Rockwall-Heath for 2016 through 2018.

After hosting a scrimmage with Pine Tree on Aug. 19 at Lobo Stadium, the season starts Aug. 26 in Lufkin, then to Marshall on Sept. 2, before the homecoming "Green Out" game Sept. 9 against South Oak Cliff ends non-district competition.

The Lobos begin league play Sept. 16 by hosting Mesquite Horn, then traveling Sept. 23 to Tyler's Rose Stadium to face Robert E. Lee. Longview then hosts Rockwall for Little League Night on Sept. 30 before their bye week.

District action continues Oct. 14 when the Lobos head to North Mesquite, hosting John Tyler the next week on Oct. 21. A trip to Rockwall-Heath Oct. 28 leads up to the final regular season game Nov. 4 against Mesquite at home for Senior Night.

Kickoff for all regular season games is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
