Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

U guys think Josh will do the same to Abilene as he did against Frenship? I certainly hope so.

Go Trailblazers!!!


Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

They have it right and I will be there I have a JV grandkid that will be on the sidelines but I also have a Freshman grandkid attending Cooper lol at least they have not clashed helmets in high school but they did in middle schools.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

There is no doubt that Josh Fields is an exceptional player, even more impressive is Americas defense. So good luck and beat Abilene!!!

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

On paper this should be a good game down to the wire.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

The strength of Abilene D is against the run game. Americas will need a good pass game to counter the rush D. The Eagle QB has turned into a real dual threat. Of course everyone tries to stop Smith. Which has been very difficult to do .

Americas has several weapons on offense and everyone has tried to stop Josh Fields and that has been very difficult for teams to do.

Josh Fields 6A Leading Rusher in the State
http://www.maxpreps.com/leaders/football/offense,rushing/texas/division-6a/CXnkZdKIYUq1nTLF07xcVA/stat-leaders.htm?classyear=all&position=all

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

Fields has 314 rushing attempts this season which is also the most in all of 6A with only two others above 250 attempts but Smith has only 187 attempts thus the only reasonable comparison is not total yards but yards per carry average which favors Smith by only point one and he has one more touchdown. Maxpreps shows Abilene as the 9th team in all of 6A in average yards per game at 467.3 in total offense while Americas is 57th at 382.7 average yards per game at total offense. Just relaying 411 and I expect both rushing attacks to be a handful for both defenses.

Well now I see that Maxpreps only has 10 games in there for Abilene and Smith, so he has more carries and yards from the bi-district game that have not been added which I think was 17 or so for about 155 and Abilene went for about 560 total on Friday.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

I'm curious, is Americas going to spend the night in Abilene at least? I hate for them have to play and travel the same day. I want fair and square but whooping

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

Smith has not played A full game. Many times he is replaced with the 2&3 in the third and fourth Qt. With Abilene having a large lead.Therefore, it is even more impressive he passed H. Sims of Abilene for all purpose TD's this year. Also with PK at QB the Eagles have utilized the passing game very effectively. 17of 19 last week vs Arlington High. Looks to be a game with two good running backs. How is Americas passing game?

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

Is this year's Americas team improved from the one that lost big time against SAC last year? I will assure you that AHS is much improved after loosing to SAC in first game

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

I agree...Americas is much improved this season...especially the defense.

Looks that way from Maxpreps: 478 points for and 308 points against this year over 13 games but last year was 417 points for and 391 points against over 13 games so that's an improvement of 61 for and 83 against

Any word on chartering a bus for fans?

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

Wondering what D1 schools has Fields gotten offers from? As an Abilene fan expect an Eagle win ,however, enjoy watching good players and look forward to seeing Fields. Hope for good turn out from Americas fans.

That is cool and I hope he Aims High. Both RB Abram Smith and DE/TE Coy McMillon (brother to UT Longhorn starting OL Jake McMillon) are committed to Tulsa.

Watch Abilene vs Timber Creek
http://www.hudl.com/video/2/20730/5823417e7bddf75b3045844b

Keep watching plenty of film on Abilene and see how their offensive linemen hold hold hold but with Abilene that is nothing new in my opinion.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

Abilene is going to mudhole Americas. Fields is a great back. Abram Smith is unstoppable though.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

Unfortunately El Paso is still part of Texas and I like to see what kind of team Abilene High is playing. Since most of the El Paso fans are either ashamed or to scared to comment on the main 6A board I have to venture on here to get any info.

I suppose your right. Thought we could have pre game talk and find out something about each other. It appears convention about other teams outside of ep is offensive to some EP fans. Certainly not all. So see Ya in Abilene. Safe travels.

Why do you feel that El Pasoans have to go post comments in that 6A forum?

El Pasoans are fine posting within this forum and El Pasoans are also fine posting within their own twitter and facebook pages which many do.

If you are so cuddle comfort cozy in the 6A forum and makes you feel right at home posting comments there then that is you but don't come in here talking as if El Pasoans and everyone else who is a high school football fan has to go to that 6A forum to talk high school football.

And besides why are you posting comments in a 6A forum. Don't you Abilenians have your own forum?

I'm here trying to be an info guy and I do read what is on 6atxfootball.com but been silent there for a couple years because there is a lot more football talk and details that are above what I can keep up with so before moving on to other sites I simply absorb as much as I can and I have not seen anything relating to a circle jerk or anyone freaking out. I do see some posters that predict a wide margin of victory by Abilene which is what you will see in the media because that is what the comparisons say but the vast majority are realistic fans who just like the coaches and players that know that you can never take anyone not seriously in the playoffs or you will be staying home after that night. 325 is out of line with the not concerned about any El Paso team but I promise you he is not in the majority just like there is some playful back and forth smack talk over there but very very seldom will you catch anyone attacking anyone and when they do those admins are quick to quell it. Whatever happens this weekend with the EP area versus Big Country area games I guarantee I shall be back here to appropriately congratulate on any of the wins and wish well on the future because its really about raising high school kids into adults that will lead the US.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

This is what I see going down when it's all said and done. Abilene will beat Americas by 2 to 3 touchdowns and then Abilene will be beaten and humiliated by Carroll or Desoto. It's really that simple people.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

tmcran, I will address you as I know your handle. I read 6atexasfootball and have for years. I never post because it doesn't apply to me. Im an el pasoan and I just read there to see what ourteams have in store for us in the playoffs. As far as these guys tbh there are only a few consistant posters here and they all have their team. As far as Americas fans posting on here they really aren't that active. You can go through the threads and you will see that they aren't very active. the people posting on this thread are really just the regulars. As for why el pasoans don't post on the other site, mostly I would say that it just doesn't apply to them so they come here. Another reason Im sure is the disrespect that el pasoans get when dealing with fans from over there. But yeah If you guys are looking to get the Americas fans riled up they don't post here much it really isn't what they do. So Like I said I read there so I know your handle and that is why I addressed you. As for the people on here calling for a blowout or a mudhole, those are el paso people acting like they are from over there. Because Honestly I don't see any post like that on the other site.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

tmcran, also I just read over on yalls sight that its hard to deal with these el paso fans and your right.....but we aren't all that bad. I got a pretty bad name here because I am not just a homer and root for my team.......And I also read the part about freaking out..... I don't think anyone here thinks you guys are freaking out about Americas just freaking out because no one will comment on the game because they don't post there. We here in El Paso know that you guys would never freak out about any of our teams. Wont't make the game but will check here and there for updates.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

With the insane rise of facebook and twitter the 6a forum has become like an abandoned ghost town just as the old coach forum. facebook and twitter took the mojo out of alot of high school football forums out there as I used to frequent them all years ago. Those forums are just not the same anymore. I now just come to this forum and go to a lot of coaches twitter and facebook pages to get my fix of high school football.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

I hope I didn't come across with disrespect. As no one from Americas was posting on 6A forum .thought could get feed back

One thing I can guarantee you is the hospitality of about everyone at Abilene High School if Americas comes over for a visit even sometime Friday and even if it is during the pep rally in the morning since your players are coming in Thursday night. Most of the kids will welcome a chance to get to know the other kids a little bit plus exchange stories and perhaps even some gifts although I cannot guarantee there might be a bad kid or two because thats life and I am pretty sure El Paso kids feel the same way based on what little Ive had the chance to see on twitter and facebook.

Y'all act surprised that EP aren't reasonable folk. They're beyond delusional, always have been. I just hope we come out of the game healthy. We always seems to come out of games against EP schools with multiple "injuries". I always have flashbacks to what could have been had we been healthy in '04...

this is the kind of stuff Im talking about. Probably why posters don't feel welcome. Like everyone can be a fan of their team unless their from el paso then they should just concede every game. I know that we aren't the best around but we are improving.

Woops, facts wrong.. Abilene 22 of 23. Appreciate some of the Americas fans coming over on 6A site. Good information and sounds as if both team's have some good O & D. Look forward to the game. Having seen a large # of the Abilene/ EP games,it's MHO the EP teams play tough. I'm not a X&O guy;can give observation.

I predict Canutillo wins a close one
Chapin loses, Parkland falls in a close one, Eastlake loses in a close one. History has been rhyming with Abilene over (El Paso) Americas.

Canutillo is not gonna lose there defends is to strong same with americas

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

Abilene 45- Americas 21

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

I think Americas will possess the ball alot and Abilene doesnt necessarily worry about that and they could give up alot of yards also but twice this season their opponents had both more yards gained and more first downs yet on the scoreboard Abilene had about twice as many points in addition to the fact that this was against a playoff team in district and the first game of the playoffs. The defense knows how to stall drives and keep them out of the end zone more times than not even though I expect Fields to get 150 yards and approach 200 because you dont average 222 yards a game and especially 7.8 per carry without a very good reason and it will be important for Americas to slow down the offense from Abilene somehow. I am looking at the game somewhere in the 38 to 17 range for home team at Shotwell.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

Americas defense will cause Abilene lots of problems the thing is will Americas be able to turn points out of all those problems.

WE SAW

WE KICKED THAT A$$

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

JMHO. Americas played hard.However,absolutely not in the same league as Abilene . No coaching adjustments by Americas or perhaps the adjustments just couldn't be made. Expected to see a good effort by Fields .....just didn't happen . Abilene D well coached and prepared. Eagles have a Very tough playoff game next week. That 3rd round is a killer .

Hopefully you're equally as cocky with Abilene's next opponent and their fans as you were with El Pasoans.

Good Luck Abilene.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

Abilene plays Desoto next. Not so easy I think.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

WOW! I didn't expect such a lopsided victory for Abilene. I'm curious to know from those that were there what was different about this games then Americas game against Frenship last week? Judging by the score Abilene's game was flawless. But what hurt Americas the most? Was it size, speed, skills, or what that made the difference in this game? As for Americas...there is no shame in advancing to the second round of the playoffs. And use the loss as a learning experience for the future. But there is much to be proud of this season for the Trailblazers.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

Teams like Abilene and further east of El Paso usually have 4 to 5 Josh Fields on their team. What I mean is that those teams have multiple playmakers while El Paso Americas or El Paso teams in general have 1 quality playmaker on their team because of all the dammm high schools that exist in El Paso within 3 minutes to 5 minutes from each other. Once again teams further east of El Paso have multiple quality playmakers on their team DEPTH with several skilled players and yes some size but not much. Also don't forget about the coaching. Coaching further east of El Paso are at a advantage. Research it and see why.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

Even as I watched it I had to pinch myself a few times to make sure I was seeing things right because while I felt good about the Eagles I really was anticipating it to be competitive for awhile. For a reward, Abilene gets the number one or number two team in state next week depending on who you poll and will have to bring the wood because they will very likely be 20 point underdogs. Hope your guys and gals are getting home safe and sound and can build on this season like they did last season.

you are correct. Abilene fans were also looking for a closer game. Have to say this was based off of the EP fans RE: a powerful D and the most dominant RB EP has produced in years . Perhaps, EP teams would have a more realistic view if they could play a tougher per-district schedule. The Abilene 2-3 played 4th quarter. So Abilene not trying to run the score. The reward Abilene gets us playing #2 team in the state. Ugh. However, better than staying home.

It is a catch 22 though you have to admit for EP teams to play a tougher predistrict schedule because you are looking at 400 miles or better one way to do so not counting the Odessa Midland are which is semi regularly on their schedule anyways

DeSoto is second ranked in state so Abilene will have to play out of their minds to have a chance but knock on wood we have seen this movie before.

Good luck to your Abilene Eagles against DeSoto. I'm interested to see how your powerful D and most dominant RB Smith does against DeSoto. Hopefully he lives up to your hype and your friends hype against opponents east of Abilene.

Hey I know a El Paso team has never won a State Title but by any chance do you happen to know when was the last time Abilene Eagles or Abilene Cooper Cougars WON a State Title? I'm not asking about Abilene Eagles or Abilene Cooper Cougars last State Championship appearances but I'm asking the last time Abilene Eagles and Abilene Cooper Cougars actually WON a State Title. When?

Oh my friend just text me. He is saying Abilene beat Katy like 7 years ago when Abilene was in 5A.

But what about Abilene Cooper Cougars?

So my friend was right Abilene Eagles have not won a State Title in over 7 years. So Abilene Cooper Cougars never? Wow that's shocking as they own El Paso teams. So all those years since the 1960's to present day Abilene Cooper Cougars eliminating El Paso teams from the Playoffs Abilene Cooper Cougars never went on to win one single State Title? Hmmmm interesting

Thanks for the reply

But what about Abilene Cooper Cougars?
5A was the biggest classification at the time if you recall that the redesignating was done before the start of the 2014 season and of course Abilene was D2. The Abilene 2009 team beat Katy 28-17 for the state title to notch their seventh though the previous six was from the twenties through fifties. DeSoto next week will be a bigger mountain to climb than Cedar Hill was in the round 3 playoff game of 2009 even though Cedar Hill was first in state and second in country because Abilene has not yet shown to be as good as the 2009 team but we shall see. RB Dominic Rhodes carried Cooper to the 1996 5A D2 title game but lost to Drew Brees and Austin Westlake.

Re: Round II Americas Trailblazers vs Abilene Eagles

Not sure the point you trying to make.How many times Abilene teams have eliminated EP teams vs SC wins? Well, time to move on to next week. Enjoyed the jawing with the EP fans. Thanks to the Americas fans that posted in the 6A site. Don't be a stranger .
