Longview will conclude spring practice with its annual Green-White game, which begins at 6 p.m. Friday in Lobo Stadium.

Admission is free and the concession stand will be open. The scrimmage will feature around 60 varsity plays and 50 junior varsity plays.

"Everybody's number one priority is to come out of it healthy," Longview coach John King said. "I want to see us line up properly. I want to see us secure the football, not give up big plays and just have a lack of mental mistakes and errors. Do the little things right and have fun with great effort and get something out of it.

"But it's not going to be a walk through, I can tell you that. We're going to line up and get it."

The format is as follows:

<ul> <li>First-team offense vs first-team defense - 12 plays</li> <li>Second-team offense vs second-team defense - 12 plays</li> <li>First-team offense vs first-team defense - 12 plays</li> <li>Second-team offense vs second-team defense - 12 plays</li> <li>First-team offense vs first-team defense - 12 plays</li> </ul>
