Burges just finished the season defeating El Paso High to make it into the playoffs, and Canutillo finished the season defeating Eastlake. Burges and Canutillo will face off Thursday night for advancement in the playoffs. What are your thoughts?
Canuts no doubt at all
Canutillo and 5A El Paso teams get the luxury of playing a El Paso team the first round of the playoffs while 6A El Paso teams have to travel out of town and play out of town teams.
Ofcourse Canutillo, Eastlake, and Del Valle are going to win everyone and their grandmother knows this.
Canutillo, Eastlake and Del Valle are like getting bye weeks in the first round. Gimme games. Cupcakes
You know DV,Eastlake ,Canuts ,Chapin these teams are never crying about who they play next ,that why they always go further in the Playoffs but poor old 6A always crying crying and crying about who their playing next .They crying because they are from out of town, because they are black and because they are white and because the hotel beds were to hard and the trip was to long and our fans didn't go .FOR ONCE DO SOMETHING, LIKE BELIEVE.
Believe! That was the key to the 2014 Eagles, and I think this 2016 class has it too! They believed in themselves, and set their goal to win state. Over the season, their belief in themselves and dedication to each other transferred to us as parents and fans! I see a lot of the same qualities in this year's team, so I believe!
That's what these 6A players need to do! Those out-of-town teams have been their "boogie man" for so long, those kids don't think they can compete! Our boys played teams with much bigger kids and with multiple D1 offers, but they weren't intimidated by anyone! They played their game, believed, and even though they fell short of their goal, they went farther and flew higher than any of us ever thought they could!
So, all teams representing The El Paso area, believe in yourself and your teammates! Make El Paso proud!!
Believe is a too strong of a word for some people. The only thing they truly believe is that 6A is the Mecca of football in El Paso. Lol
Aside from all the hate that has been thrown at us lately, I for one still believe that our players are just as good as all others in the state. Sound familiar?
Hey rolypoly is that what you did? Cause you sure dropped from 1-5A real quick hahahahah. Sucker
As I have said before, many think that EP 6A is the ultimate but the majority of the athletes are not at the level they think they are. A select few. Outside of EP those players would struggle at the 4A level. It is what it is. I hear the same crap from the Franklin fan base and it is comical. If an athlete is talented, who cares what district he played for. I spoke to a Franklin parent a few weeks ago and he believes his 5-10 195 lbs lineman has a chance to play D1 because of the Franklin status and connections. He has no clue what college level lineman look like. Too funny but sad!
No I songbird know it. But it's okay we don't have to see them get destroye have fun in 2-5A
It's funny how people think that 5A has a bye in the first round of the playoffs. What happens when they get to the second round? Do they play a first round out of town team? NO, they play a second round out of town team! And then you have 6A people putting down 5A for playing "cupcake" schedules. Remember 6A, you do have the enrollment advantage to 5A schools but are equals to all other 6A schools in Texas! What's the difference is that some schools work harder on the off season than others and advance in their given district. You 6A people cannot compare yourself to 5A and 5A should not compare to 6A! The enrollment plays a big part! Each should compare themselves to their own district! End results are given when its all over!!! Good luck to all EP schools and Go Canutillo!!!
The one huge advantage working for Canutillo over Burgess is their quickness on the defensive side of the ball. Burgess is a strong team but looking at their four loses, three of which were against playoff teams, they just simply don't have the fire power to overcome what Canutillo may throw at them.
I wouldn't mind seeing Burgess win, but I think it's unlikely against a very strong Eagle team.
Maybe you should look at the teams our 5a teams will play in the second round. Most of those 5a teams beat all the 6a first round opponents with the exception of San Angelo.
Your over looking Burges
Better start worrying... your undefeated season is going
Up in flames;
C'mon Burgess!!! Get it boys
Coach must have lit a fire under their butts
6 more for Canutillo.
33-26 4:35 left

Cooper won their playoff game tonight vs Dumas, 37-14.

O Bryant btw
sine I'm being honest because this site

I actually root for Parkland

and yeah Chapin is still over rated
This game cannot be played in El Paso. Teams have to meet at the halfway point. Mire than likely it will be in Midland or Fort Stockton. It be great to play 2nd round playoffs here in El Paso but, will never happen. Plus we like to travel.
Team do not HAVE TO meet halfway. Coaches can do a home and home flip but Brooks would not do that.
Anyway, game is at Canutillo's second home. Midland's Grande Communication stadium. Friday. Eastlake plays before them on the same field so you can catch two El Paso teams with one road trip.
