"We're extremely proud of what these young people have accomplished during their time at Longview High School, and we're glad to celebrate their athletic careers as they continue on to the college level," said Athletic Director John King.

Kaitlyn Adams, who earned District 15-5A Most Valuable Player honors for the Lady Lobos in volleyball, will be signing with Panola College.

Eight senior Lobos off the 11-3 state quarterfinal football team are going to compete at the next level.

All-state defensive lineman Kybrian Sheridan will sign with Texas A&M-Commerce, while all-state linebacker Bryson Davis will sign with Henderson State, and all-state offensive lineman Zach Gipson will sign with East Texas Baptist. All-district defensive back Keenan Madden will sign with Midwestern State.

Lobo teammates Braylyn Anthony, Tim Clay, Landon Peeler, and Jordan Wyattwill continue their playing careers on the same squad, as all four will be signing with Kilgore College.

National Signing Day, usually held on the first Wednesday of February, is the first day that a high school senior can sign a binding National Letter of Intent for college athletics.
