On December 22, 2018 The Longview Lobos put the finishing touches on their state championship season, 81 years after their last.

Longview came from behind to defeat Beaumont West Brook, 35-34, before 48,421 fans at AT&T Stadium in the Class 6A Division II championship game to finish the season a perfect 16-0. You may recall that perhaps the most famous Longview High School graduate, Matthew McConaughey, sent his alum a video to help get the team ready for the big game.

On March 6, 2019 McConaughey, class of '88, was on hand this morning as the State Champion Longview Lobos were honored at the State Capitol in Austin. Congratulations on a hell of a season, Lobos!
