Traveion Webster came up big over the top for Longview in its one-possession victory Friday against Rockwall.

The senior safety recorded 18 tackles and one of the Lobos' two interceptions in a 36-29 win. Those are really good numbers on any level and particularly for Class 6A -- where individual tackle numbers tend to be lower because the competing schools have deeper teams.

Webster (6-0, 202) is the ETSN.fm + Dairy Queen Defensive Player of the Week. And Longview is a team in complete control of its own destiny ahead of an open date this week and four more District 11-6A games down the stretch.

The safety, who is being recruited by Louisiana-Monroe and Central Arkansas, consistently ended Rockwall runs and catches at the third level of the defense and made the jump from a good performance to a great one with about 10 minutes remaining in regulation.

Up 23-21, and quickly after a Longview punt, Webster came up with his second interception of the season and teed running back Kendrevian White up for a 17-yard touchdown run plus a 30-21 advantage for the team.

Rockwall answered later in the quarter, made it a one-point game and got in position to win the contest when Longview gave away its second fumble of the night.

The Lobos' defense forced a turnover on downs, their offense capitalized on good field position and the defense closed the game with a second straight turnover on downs.

Longview (5-1, 3-0) won control of the district with the victory. It is the only team still undefeated within the league ahead of big games with John Tyler and Rockwall-Heath later this month.

Rockwall (1-5, 1-2), a favorite to win the district in the preseason, inched closer to elimination from the playoffs.
