Longview High School's 1992 championship-winning Lobo varsity basketball team will be recognized March 12 during the UIL state tournament at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
The team will be honored during halftime of the Class 5A matchup in a special presentation.
Led by legendary Lobo coach Leroy Romines, the team included future Notre Dame All-American and NFL star Bobby Taylor, as well as players and coaches Dayrion Taylor, Vince Taylor, Lonnie Taylor, Jacob Mauldin, Marlon Coleman, Howard Hawkins, Josh Welch, Rontrek Floyd, Desmond Wesley, Brandon Lawson, James Palmer, Toby Bush, Gaylon Hyder, Byron Young, Eric Jones, Clint Musslewhite, Marvin Graham, Jimmy Kendrick, and Lissa Byrdsong.
Romines, who passed away in 2014, put together a career record of 714-312 during his three decades of coaching. He won 423 games in Longview over 18 seasons, retiring in 1996.
