The West Monroe-Longview connection

WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE) - West Monroe's showdown with Longview has to be considered the best non-district game of the year.

The two programs meet up in September for the first time since 2006. The Rebels hold a 3-1 series advantage, but the Lobos are the defending Texas champs.

Longview head coach John King has countless ties to this area, including the fact that he played under legendary coach Don Shows at Northwestern State.
