'Big Green' reaches record numbers

Greatness is nothing new to the Longview High School Marching Band, and now it's bigger than ever.

Instructed by longtime band director Louie Robinett, the Lobo band reported more than 300 members earlier this month, taking its place among the largest in school history.

Last year the band earned its 66th consecutive first division ratings at UIL marching contests — in addition to a now half-century's worth of UIL sweepstakes awards, received first division ratings in all three categories of marching, concert band, and sight reading.

The Lobo Band Boosters announced earlier this month that they are receiving a generous donation to pursue a new cargo trailer for the growing band needs. As the band has grown to more than 300 members, all out of town travel requires significant supplies to support them.

Currently the band boosters are looking for a local dealer/salesman to help find the best deal possible.
