Two Longview senior offensive linemen have an opportunity to continue their football playing careers.
Adrian Jackson and Mark Malone were both offered by Missouri Valley College on Thursday morning. The Vikings are an NAIA school and went 12-1 in 2012.
Both players were starters on an offense that rushed for more than 2,900 yards.
Jackson was a unanimous first-team all-District 12-5A performer as a senior and was also a first-team all-East Texas selection by the News-Journal/ETVarsity.com. The 6-foot-2, 280-pounder graded out at 88 percent with 40 pancakes and 35 knockdowns as a senior.
Malone also made an impact on the line. The 6-foot-2, 250-pound center was a second-team all-district pick.
