Re: This is Sparta!

Pebble hills has the best defensive coordinator in the city, if not the state. Contreras is young and innovative. Played at utep and has all the modern ideas. Expect Sparta to make some noise

Spartan_Dad you must be a comedian

Re: This is Sparta!

PH first varsity game is vs Eastlake. We'll see how this team looks right off the bat

Re: This is Sparta!

Pebble Hills What? Contreras Who? Give us a resume of what both of these have done? Pebble Hills won't be getting in the playoffs anytime soon? Those coaches will be looking for answers after the season. It's called horses and you all have none. Good luck next year as That this is Sparta chant will mean nothing and at the end of year you all will be recovering from a beat down week in and week out.

Re: This is Sparta!

How about a trip to the final four for a resume, Contreras had the defence ready every week. A proven winner.

Like that other character stated NO HORSES on the line like he had at Canutes. Great players make a coaches resume look great.

Re: This is Sparta!

Contreras was the defensive coord. At canutillo?

Re: This is Sparta!

It does look like rain for the Spartans spring game

Re: This is Sparta!

He was the safety and corners coach.

Re: This is Sparta!

Like the other guys said before, your coaches will be scratching their heads at the end of the season. Not impressed at All with your spring game. Only potential horse is your RB and that's it. You guys better get ready for a rude awaking and a wild ride!

I agree Pebble Hills better get ready for a rude awakening and a wild ride just like El Dorado, Franklin, Americas and Montwood always get in the 2nd round of the playoffs. LMAO

Re: This is Sparta!

It will take time, like any new high school starting off. I've been very impressed with the atmosphere that coach Torres has created. He's all business and we all have high expectations for the future. We will be a Varsity team without seniors this coming year so I believe we all have our expectations in check. Our freshman team was solid last year beating Americas, El Do and Socorro so we should be able to compete in the near future.

Re: This is Sparta!

They have a solid nucleus and terrific coaching. This year will be a great learning experience.

Re: This is Sparta!

Ok IMO, I just watched the video of the spring game. Take this with a grain of salt. First off they basically are a glorified JV team so yes they will take their lumps. Analysis of the game. I did not see the whole thing just the youtube video. Their QB is suspect and I imagine that is why they didn't throw much. NOw running the ball isn't a bad thing, but since their offensive line is not very physical it might be a problem. The RB will eventually be a good player but he doesn't look very physically developed and that will cause an issue down the stretch with injuries in 1-6a. The Defense looks undersized, again that is ok if they are strong enough. I couldn't tell how strong they were because the O line wasn't very physical. They are a few years away but will eventually be pretty good. My prediction for next year is 1 district win vs. Socorro. They should protect their better players when they go against the Big Dogs......

Re: This is Sparta!

I think a lot of our enthusiasm comes from knowing we are the largest high school in the county and are right in the middle of one of the fastest growing areas of the city. Sure, we might be a few years away but I think the future is bright!

Spartandad,

There is always a buzz and excitement that surrounds a new school and football program. Eastlake created a stir a few years back (both good and bad) so expect both positive and negative feedback as the Spartans take the field. Nonetheless, good luck to your boys as things will be much harder on the varsity level. Eastlake found that out.

BTW, Per UIL numbers, El Dorado is still the largest school in the county followed by Franklin, Coronado, Pebble Hills, Montwood. Just food for thought.

That's good info right there. Thanks! But that is by enrollment and I was referring to real estate and size of actual school. When we have all 4 grades attending we should have the highest enrollment in El Paso before long.

Re: This is Sparta!

Spartandad,

UIL uses funny math to arrive at new school data. They don't use the two class data as in PHHS case but rather extrapolate to four classes. They take current data for two classes and extrapolate to arrive at the number you see in the spreadsheet. Truth be told, don't know if they simply double current numbers for PHHS or if they take the numbers that exist at the 7, 8, 9 and 10 level. Nonetheless, for four classes PHHS still trails the other schools. But who knows what the future holds. Eastlake is expected to join the 6A party in two years as they are on the 5A/6A cusp right now. And with the population growth out here on the Horizon, the future looks bright. Fear the Falcon....

El Ferna

Re: This is Sparta!

Oh I bet your right. I remember coach saying that they take the current enrollment and double it to arrive at the enrollment number. That makes sense because with just two classes there's no way we are the 3rd or 4th biggest. Cool, thanks for the info.

Re: This is Sparta!
Re: This is Sparta!

All I gotta say is they're a jv team coming up and they have not expirenced a real varsity setting. They're gonna be shocked and won't play to what the hoped. But yes they might be able to beat soccoro

Truth, I assure you that everyone to include the players, coaches, and parents all are very well aware we are playing against a stacked deck, without any seniors. So to say we will be "shocked" is not true.

Re: This is Sparta!

Pebble hills just isn't ready to play with the big boys looking at what they did last season

Re: This is Sparta!

It seems like some of these folks trying to convince themselves that pebble hills is bad. What are you guys worried about if they aren't going to be good. Let u play out. You dont. Need to keep talking them.

Re: This is Sparta!

EP Gridiron has us preseason #21
and
El Paso Times has us preseason #19

I like El Paso Times preseason ranking of us alot more. We will win some games.

Until #18 Socorro was posted I wasn't sure PH was #19

Thought maybe he was just running a store in them

Re: This is Sparta!

I doubt they will win much this first year. Even if the program is set up to succeed in the future, it is probably too difficult to do without seniors. At that age, the body is developing fast, so there is a significant physical difference from one grade to another. A large enrollment might counteract this with a big talent pool, but if the enrollment I've seen is an extrapolation, then it won't help them. The most I'd expect for them this year is to maybe to win a couple games and be competitive in a few others. It's a tough district.

Re: This is Sparta!

Irvin & Soccoro are winnable games, the rest will be tough

Re: This is Sparta!

This will be similar to Eastlake in every way. Growing pains to succes. Will be a little tougher though 1-6a is a bit tougher

Not to good, unless allowing a boat load of points is a good thing.

Re: This is Sparta!

EL ferna, do you know Eastlake's Enrollment figures right now?

Re: This is Sparta!

37-0 at half to americas, how's that DC working out

Re: This is Sparta!

I am laughing....Contreras was a JV coach at Canutillo. First of all, how the hell did he get hired at Sparta? Laughing still

Re: This is Sparta!

No he wasnt. He was the towel boy.

Re: This is Sparta!

Wtf are people ragging on contreras like that. He really is a good young coach. He cannonly work with what he has. He will grow as a coach. I still dont even think this was a pebble hills fan that started this thread. I think it was someone fishing to get the spartans ragged on. Let them grow up..

Re: This is Sparta!

It's a learning process and that's a young team that will be pretty good. I think that he will do well.

Re: This is Sparta!

Who the hell is this Contreras guy. Don't tell me he was a jv coach and now is coordinating 6A ball. No wonder....

Re: This is Sparta!

We dont even let it bother us. Its probably just one bitter individual posting under different names each week. Im sure he'll be back again in the coming weeks. Just shows how pathetic & immature some people are.

Re: This is Sparta!

Okay, there is enough blame to go around.. Who is the OC? Not many points scored either. SMH

Re: This is Sparta!

Your time will come Spartans, the talent is there. You guys are young and eager. Your coaching staff is solid. Don't let a few bumps on the road redirect you from your path.

Don't let the El Paso haters get to you. Do your thing! Your time will come...

Re: This is Sparta!

I'm curious as to what people predict for the Spartans in 2017. The Spartans had 2 wins in 2016 against Irvin and Socorro. We'll be the only team returning every starter plus adding depth from this years JV squad players moving up. We'll definitely take a step forward but how big will that step be is the question. Predictions please.

Also, how did El Do and Eastlake do in their respective 2nd seasons?

Re: This is Sparta!

Spartandad,

Honestly I would not be surprised if Pebble Hills ended up 4th in the district. I think they have the talent to compete for that last playoff spot. Now all of that is determined by their work this off-season, which should have started. Coach Torres is a good coach and I'm sure he will have these kids ready come August. This past year was their first year competing on Varsity, next year they will have had that one year of speed and experience under their belt and I think it will show. Looking forward to how they do next season.

Hey SpartyDad,

No predictions but Sparta will be very competitive and could very likely make the playoffs.

Eastlake went 8-3 their second year in Varsity and 7-1 in district. They were District Co-Champs along with Canutillo and Del Valle. They lost in Bi-District to Chapin 22-14.

Re: This is Sparta!

Thanks for the comments. Making the playoffs would be huge for our program! Next year cannot get hear soon enough.

pebble 0lays in a different district. i predict 2 more wins.....andress and coronado, but much closer games. theybwint get blown out by the big time 6as next year. they will be much more competitive. but down the stretch they will be the team to beat. 2 or 3 years down the road.

Re: This is Sparta!

If you want two more wins you better schedule hanks and Austin, lil brother sparty was just played with like a toy last year

Re: This is Sparta!

^^^^^^well that is just straight hate lol
