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!!!

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

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.

If you really werent you wouldnt come around these parts. Why are you wasting your time over here when you could be having a circle-jerk with your 6A buddies?

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.

I hope I didn't come across with disrespect. As no one from Americas was posting on 6A forum .thought could get feed back
on Americas . I'm not familiar with the posters here so don't have a clue whom supporters are for which team. Believe me the folks on the 6A site would like the EP fans to jump in. Heard the Americas players to be treated to some Abilene Hospitality while here. Safe travels to all.

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.
