Longview's uncharacteristic 0-2 start appears to be in the Lobos' rear-view mirror. Longview has won six consecutive games since, and is on the verge of its 10th district championship in 11 years.

The Lobos (6-2) moved up one spot to No. 2 in this week's ETSN.fm East Texas Class 6A/5A poll, leapfrogging Lufkin (4-4), after Longview scored a 63-6 rout of Mount Pleasant on Friday night.

Lufkin slipped to third after its last-second 55-48 loss to Ennis last Friday. Both Longview and the Panthers are behind top-ranked John Tyler (6-2), which rolled past Corsicana, 33-3, last week.

There were no changes in Nos. 4-6, but some movement was created at the back end of the poll.

Texas High (5-3) and Nacogdoches (6-2) exchanged spots at No. 7 and 8, respectively. Texas High earned a 41-14 defeat of Marshall, while Nacogdoches took down Lindale, 42-35, last Friday night.

Hallsville (5-3), a 26-17 winner over Greenville, and Marshall (5-3) traded places at Nos. 9 and 10.
