"They only managed to score on our second team and it was pretty fun. They played us close (28-27 Brownwood win) last year, and we heard that they were saying that we couldn't stop the run - that we can only stop the passing game."
What type of success did Graham have in establishing the running game Friday night?
"It wasn't happening," said Longoria. "Overall, I had 8-to-10 tackles and an interception, but another one of our defensive backs got flagged on the play where I picked off the pass.
"I didn't play the whole game, and I didn't play any offense (Longoria usually sees some action at RB). My back was a little sore from the game the week before and it was bothering me a little, so I only played defense. I've been going to the chiropractor and it's fine."
Stephenville, this week's opponent, blanked Brownwood last year, 35-0. The Yellowjackets are 1-1, having lost to Aledo in Week Zero.
"I think they're the No. 4 team in Class 4A," said Longoria. "We're not going to back down and hopefully we'll get the win. Last year, they were huge and fast - at least 260 pounds across the board - on the defensive line.
"We're ready for them. It's going to be their cowbells in the stands making noise against our fans' shakers."
Stephenville is led by RB James Myles.
