VIDEO: Longview Lobos ring ceremony

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - The Longview Lobos celebrated their recent state championship win during a ring ceremony Thursday at the school.

The Lobos defeated Beaumont West Brook 35-34 in December to become the 2018 6A State Champions. It was the first time the school claimed the championship since 1937.

The ring ceremony took place at 11 a.m. in the Lobo Coliseum. Longview ISD reported the ceremony was open to the public, “aka our beloved Lobo Nation.”

In March, the team traveled to Austin where they were honored in front of the Texas House of Representatives and Longview ISD graduate, Matthew McConaughey. State Rep. Jay Dean had filed a resolution to congratulate their win in February.
