Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

i agree with supporter. spoiler might be san eli over austin.

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

I agree with supporter. Just Riverside fabens might be closer than people think. I believe Riverside is missing some key players. And eldorado will beat eastlake. Props to eastlake it'll be close but I like the eldorado speed and numbers to be to much for eastlake. No disrespect to eastlake they are the team to beat in 5a hands down

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

Americas over DV I'm gonna have to say low scoring affair, good offensive weapons but tough D's

Ysleta over Burges close playoff game last season gonna say mustangs regressed a bit while indians improved also a bit

Jefferson over Parkland matadors have a squad but it will take a bit to build the chemistry

Canutillo over Socorro curious about the bulldogs but sticking with the eagles on this one

Pebble Hills over Irvin depth...numbers at chapin take from irvin, austin, and even ep high

Midland over Franklin cougars got hyped by ep gridiron, ep times, parents, but canutillo quickly exposed in scrimmage

Austin over San Eli panthers better be hungry for that W

Chapin over Bel Air chapin will represent 1 5a well the first three weeks

Bowie over Horizon bears not the strongest team but can pack a punch, lopsided affair in this one

Midland Lee over Coronado coronado needs to bond quickly

EP High over Cobre don't know much about cobre just going with the ep team

Andress over Hanks blowout

Montwood over Wolfforth again, going with the ep team. i recognize the talent they showed at 7on7

Eastwood over Midland Christian took a look at midland christian schedule and just assumed it was non public

Riverside over Fabens it didn't go well at bowie or chapin scrimmages for rangers but they seem to have a squad, hopefully they get it going

El Dorado over Eastlake do not think it's gonna be a high scoring game like last season both D's should have improved and matured

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

To:

FRANKLIN
CORONADO
EL PASO
MONTWOOD
EASTWOOD

We need a Week 1 clean sweep of victories over all outside of EP opponents. Good luck!

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

it will be interesting to see how pebble hills will do. sometimes new programs get an us against the world mentality and play well.

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

Eastlake is going up against a State caliber team in El Dorado. Would be great if Eastlake upsets El Dorado as to humblize El Dorado and wake them up.

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

Eastlake, Del Valle and Canutillo will have big wins over the 6A Opponents.

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

I agree with pretty much all your predictions except I think America's beats Del Valle and the Montwood & Eastwood games are much more close than you think.

My opinion is that Del Valle beats Americas and Eastlake beats Eldo. Neither Americas or Eldo have a passing game and both 5A Schools are better balanced offensively with great defenses.

Yup No passing game.... I've been watching him play since his youth, Through Middle school, HS and again earler this summer on 7on 7 and still no passing game!!!!!

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

Today and Tomorrow is NOT yesterday, last week, last month, last year or years ago. Today is today and tomorrow is tomorrow. Many players get better on each passing day.

I remember a time when I did not know how to cook but now I cook like a top chef.

Live the present and don't dwell in the past.

Good luck to all teams.

Your right they didn't have a passing game, but neither did Del Valle. From what I saw Del Valle's defense was solid, but that new QB, well let's just say he Isn't his brother!! Del Valle's offense struggled and just couldn't get anything going. Americas was basically a one man show, which I don't understand cause there is plenty of other talent on that team, like #3 Jacob Monarez. Not impressed at all by either team.

If Jacob is the #3 kid, then he caught 2 touchdowns so I don't get what you're saying. The Fields kid looked to have a pretty pedestrian game. Del Valle defense was all over him.

He had one TD and the Reciever #1 had the other, then the TD run by #21 Fields.

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

Sounds like Americas squeezed out a victory against Del Valle tonight but it wasn't pretty. Which means Americas will rely heavily on Fields moving forward. But without a good passing game, Fields will have to work harder and harder!

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

Yeah, Fields was the whole offense. They gave it to him so much i thought the announcers mic was on repeat. I would think that he had around 40 runs and maybe 150 yards.

Come on bro, it was 18-0 late in the game, hardly a squeeze, but thats ok. We'll get better. Im not worried about our future. Lot's of season left.

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

I have the upmost respect for Coach Perales and what he's done with the DV program but some kind of change needs to be done. The DV program has to beat 6A local schools. If not, DV will still be considered a powerhouse but not top tier. I'm so disappointed. Coach P MUST beat Eastlake and the rest of 2-5A and make a deep run in the playoffs this season. Hope this comment doesn't ruffle any feathers but I'm just being honest.

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

What the F is wrong with you folks. Things I have read in this thread are ridiculous.........Let me get this straight.....DV needs change because Coach Perales isn't getting it done. He is one of the winningist coaches in town....tonight he lost to one of the other coaches that wins consistantly. He went into a game that they were supposed to lose to a higher ranked team and lost.....which everyone picked him to lose and you guys want him replaced. What is the logic there. FUrthermore I saw where someone said montez didn't impress. How the heck can he impress when he spent most of the night on his back. Then I saw where someone said that AMericas and DV defenses both looked bad......seriously DV looked fast and physical and actually did ok vs. Americas......Americas Defensive front looked exceptional which is why montez looked ineffective. YOu guys need to get a grip. Hell if you don't want coach P im sure there are lots of teams that would love him. Keep it in perspective. DV lost to a better team but played a really physical good game. WTF..........GTFOH with that...........DV good will finish 1st or 2nd in district and win at least 1 playoff game. Americas is good and will finish 1st or second in district and win at least 1 playoff game......and you folks want change at DV.......Heck when you thought he was leaving you were having a fit about it. You people kill me. as a matter of fact......montez was knocked out of the game because he got hammered so hard.......yeah that was his fault.....he is a 15 year old sophmore and you expect him to be his brother already. Get this through your heads......they played a good team tonight.......

Not sure if you think my comment was implying that I want Coach Perales replaced. I just want a change (cough, a win, cough) against local 6A schools. Coach P doesn't get the full credit he deserves but it might be due to him not winning against 5A/6A schools.

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

5A = Eastlake
6A = El Dorado, Americas..

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

Sorry i read change as in change of coaches and got inside my feelings. Guys they lost to a good team. If you were there. The los was dominated by americas. Have you seen the video of the wr getting crushed by #90.....also on news they showed montez taking a straight solid shot by #88 I think it might have been the play that knocked him out.

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

Del Valle quit being a hater and go back to coaching little league football. What are you talking about Coach Perales not beating 6a teams. (Cough, Coronado, Cough, 2-0). Quit pretending we know you were there for those games. Now Coach Perales lost to my #1 team in the city and he needs to go? This man has over 100 wins and coaches the hell out of his team? I didn't hear anyone saying they wanted Calderon out when they got their butt handed by El Dorado. Coaches at Eastlake and Del Valle know what they are, these early games will expose weaknesses early and will get them ready for district and a playoff run. If you have any question get at me Del Valle

Talking about expectations, Jeff did not show up at all. I figured Parkland was gonna be good but this good? Or Jeff that bad?? Gonna have to wait till week 3 to get a real feel as to where the Matadors stand.

Oh well so far predictions not too bad, five out of six, we'll see how tonight plays out.

Thanks, but I was just messin with ya. This game was probably the hardest to predict for most because our Spartans are a big unknown. It's only going to get harder for our boys from here on.

On a separate note...I went 5 out of 6 yesterday on my predictions! Not to bad for guess work.

Re: WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS

parkland is hype, Sullivan is average at best and their QB can't move at all. They will be 2-5a tier 2......meaning eastlake and del valle will blow them out. they will battle with the rest for a playoff spot. But for real ysletta......wow......parkland might have to watch out.

I am with you on this one. PARKLAND seems to be a perennial tier 2 5A team the last several years. This game was not nearly as good for PARKLAND or bad for Jeff as it looked. It's a long season and PARKLAND traditionally has difficulty with academic eligibility at points throughout the season as well.

You have Parkland, Ysleta, BA, canuts and I'll even throw Hanks in there fighting for two playoff spots in my opinion.

None of them have a playmaker that can separate them from the rest. Maybe canuts with Moya at rb and very good coaching. I agree parkland is hype and will drop off towards the end, Ysleta lost stud wr and really dont have a strong offense. qb is avg at best. Hanks has huge issues at QB. BA has young stud qb, maybe they can separate along with canutillo. If Hanks moves on to back up QB that might make a difference, JV won district last year with him. Varsity is a different story though. I'm hoping this week one will show us something from one of these teams.

at the end of the day it'll be del valle and eastlake at top fighting for top spot, everyone else will be done first round of playoffs if they even make it there.

Apparently Guru doesn't comprehend what he/she reads on the forum. At least Supporter gets it. Let me reiterate myself, I never said I wanted Coach Perales fired or replaced. I just want changes made to the program so they (Coach P, Staff and Athletes) can get the credit that they deserve. I do stand corrected, DV has in fact beaten a few 5A/6A schools when they were in 4A/5A district. I should have done my research being away from EP the past few seasons. Anyhow, I'm a DV alumni and proud to say that I was under Coach P in football and Coach Jasso in track. If Del Valle can't beat these eastside "Powerhouses" like El Dorado, Americas, etc and now district foe Eastlake on the gridiron, the Big Bad Blue program will always be overlooked on the ranking system by local media outlets.

My opinion is that Del Valle beats Americas and Eastlake beats Eldo. Neither Americas or Eldo have a passing game and bot 5A Schools are better balanced offensively with great defenses.


ELDO has no passing game? Never heard of Cedarius huh, wait a couple days...

Yup No passing game.... I've been watching him play since his youth, Through Middle school, HS and again earler this summer on 7on 7 and still no passing game!!!!!


Care to rethink your comments. Over 400 yards tonight. Over 200 rushing over 200 passing. I suggest you pay more attention next time you watch that young man...
