I know not many El Pasoans take this All Star Game serious or respect it much and I have heard some joke and laugh about it but I think it's great that local El Paso senior football players get to play in 1 more football game before they graduate. Majority of these senior football players will not go on to play at the college level so this game is fun for them to participate in. So with that said here are this year's East and West All Star teams.

Just like the youth city All Stars I think it's an honor and fun.
Quick question for someone with knowledge. What if your kid's on the roster for a spot he doesn't play? It's awesome to be a part of this but doesn't that affect the team?
Grateful, humble, appreciative you name it.
Congrats to all these hard working young men. Best of luck to the ones moving forward.
Who picks these teams? I doubt it's coaches because there are plenty of all district players missing.
coaches nominate the players. so yeah hater
if your player wasn't nominated
go to your coach to complain
nothing but whiners and haters
don't come on here like a child and
Looks like the East is stacked should be a good game but East will take it for sure.
East in a blowout win again. Maybe the east will pick better players next year. They got some right but missed on a bunch
*West will pick better players
Curious to hear from you guys
Who is missing from the West? East? Why?
Who shouldn't be on here? Why?
Kinda surprised none of the DB's from Chapin made it. They had 3 good seniors in Hernandez, Licon, & Banks, but I'm sure there's a lot of good players in the city.
MAYBE YOUR MIJO HAS CHARACTER ISSUES
MAYBE HIS GRADES ARE NOT UP TO PAR
THESE ARE ALSO TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT
MAYBE THEY WANT PLAYERS THAT WILL ACTUALLY
SHOW UP TO PRACTICE. BUNCH OF **** BABIES IN HERE!
It's a delicate subject that's for sure
Believe me no disrespect to the Chapin DB's I'm sure if you switch them out with some on the roster with anyone no one would flinch.
I don't know the other DB's but I do know Bowie's. They played both ways and special teams. True iron men. Patrick was leader interceptions for the District. Big games, for instance completely shut down Burges big receiver whom had a great season. These boys won't disappoint.
Well here's my two cents don't take it as fact but this is what I've been seeing for the last couple of years !!!!!! and it explains why some athletes get picked and others don't !!!!!! If you break it down as follows the same thing seems to occur year after year. So to make a long story short Basically the All star team gets picked by how each team finished out the season !!!!!! it's a numbers game !!!!!!! it's a little complicated but I'll try to simplify it as much as I can !!!! selections are by no means perfect but Like I said it seems to play out this way the last couple of years .... First and foremost the coaches pick the players they want to send to the all star game for their own perceptive team !!!!! A team that is deemed the best in their district is given 6 slots in the all star team the second best team is given 5 slots and so on and so on.... This is how it broke down this Year !!!!!!
Americas 6 slots
Canutillo 6 slots
Bowie 6 slots
Del Valle 6 slots
teams deemed 1st
East Team West Team
Americas 6 slots Canutillo 6 Slots
Del Valle 6 slots Bowie 6 slots
If your wondering why Del Valle gets six slots and they came in second in district ? that's because canutillo is part of the Westside team they still take their 6 slots with them but for district 2-5a it leaves Del Valle on top and makes them first team for 2-5a with 6 slots and Eastlake in second so Eastlake gets 5 slots.
Teams deemed 2nd
East Team West Team
Eastlake 5 slots Franklin 5 slots
Now why does Franklin get 5 slots for the westside when they came in fourth in district and andress came in 2nd ? because Eldo,montwood and americas are all on the eastside team . So Eldo and Montwood are deemed 3rd team in the Eastside team . And somebody decided to deem andress as 3rd team for the westside so they each get 4 slots each and Franklin Becomes 2nd 1-6a team for the Westside team and they get 5 slots
Teams deemed 3rd
East Team West team
Eldo 4 slots Parkland 4 slots
Montwood 4 slots Andress 4 slots
it keeps breaking down that way when you start going further down.. teams deemed fourth get 3 slots and so on and so on.... so bottom line the better you do in district the more players you get to send to the all star game the worse you do the least amount of players you get to send !!!!! Not a perfect system but it is what it is ....... Right or wrong that's what I've been observing the last couple of years when it comes to this all Start game ....... So don't kill the messenger !!! Just saying!!!!!!!
Wow DAD, you are so full of sh!+. The coaches pick the kids that go to the All-Star game and you said that those who pick don't know what they are doing. Parents are buddy-buddy with the coaches and paying them off, dude are you off your rocker. Why so much hate! That's right coaches don't know talent(sarcasm) or maybe they do and also pick those that work hard all year not just during the season but off season as well. Typical mad or jealous parent hating on everyone that made it to the All-Star roster instead of just congrats to all these kids for a hard working season. Congratulations to all seniors for a hard fought season, to those that made the All-Star roster congrats. I know that many kids didn't make the roster should of.
coaches do select the players idiot; to be considered
they may not choose who makes it; but the coaches create the pool
of players who are chosen; dunmbASS
Take it from me it is not like some mom and pops think. No way is there a room with a large table where 30 some El Paso area high school football head coaches sit about it smoking expensive cigars while drinking some fine old aged whiskey and discussing which of their athletes ought to be in this game.
Just me but I think its silly to have an all star game while the season is still going on...its almost as if the organizers are admitting defeat.."Well lets schedule a game during the 4th round of the playoffs since we know there wont be any El Paso teams left,"
No other area plays a local all-star game til January...
Ive been reading all this negativity about this game. Maybe its not the greatest but it gives these boys a chance to to play one more game. At the same time its just for fun, im sure these boys will enjoy it. Alot of these kids have been going up against eachother since probably peewee ball and alot of them now get to be on the same team for at least 1 more game. So don't down play what some of these kids have done, its easy to talk smack when we are not the ones putting in the work and getting on the field to play. These boys are proud to be playing, give them their props and support their efforts.
The misconception about this all star game over the years is that some players think that there will be some or alot of Division 1 recruiters at this all star game watching them to offer them full rides. This is NOT true. Never in all the years have a hand full of Division 1 recruiters attended this all star game. When the people of the all star game started the combine a couple of years ago some Division 2 recruiters stay to watch the all star game. But again the misconception about this all star game by some players is that they think that some or alot of Division 1 recruiters will be at this game when in fact there never are none only a couple of Division 2 recruiters will be there who decided to stay after the combine.
Players should take this game as a fun thing to participate in and not take it serious with high hopes and thinking that some or alot of Division 1 recruiters will be watching them when there will be none. Just have fun.
There are a ton of recruiters at the game and combine. I'm a coach and have first hand knowledge of this. This is a great opportunity for all these athletes. They all stick around and watch the game too. Stop being so negative. This is great and will be missed when it is gone.
college is college
if you get a DII scholarship; does it matter?
NAIA; does it matter?
school is more important
great for these kids! period
THE TRUTH is have fun and if
someone throws some college money your way
you take it
Just some food for thought.

Del Valle having 8 chosen for the All Star game is ludicrous. Favoritism definitely going on here.
Someone please answer me these questions.
Did Del Valle win district?
Did Del Valle win a playoff game?
I heard some players that were chosen decided not to play so there was openings and got filled pretty fast.
One of the most underrated players was from Bel Air #50 MLB he along with Byrd #21 had 112 tackles each.he was consistent at every game and practice and didn't make the showcase 😏
Congrats to all players who were picked to play in this game and to those players who did not get picked to play in this game and who many throughout the city know that you should have been picked don't sweat it and go out there and prove to yourself and others in college ball that you are the real deal.
Heres my experience on this allstar game. It is true there will be some recruiters there, not a lot but some. More will be at the combine. The truth is, if a player is serious about playing at the next level, their highlight film should be done and on Hudl, along with that player sending it along with a small email to every college and university they can. Most recruiters will have all ready decided who they want well before the all star game. Thats how my kid got his offers. The school he decided to go to all ready had him pinned before the game.
what will I do without all the rest of your guys football wisdom to add to my washed up has been football wisdom lol. You folks are funny. Great entertainment.
Eastside All-Stars dominates over the west!
the west wasnt even competitive
West athletes not scoring at all? Players or coaches?
canutillo QB had 5 picks 2 returned for TD
bad as it gets
He is not a good QB. He did good for his team and district but he will not be calling the signals for any college.
The Franklin QB will play QB in college just on his mechanics. Don't take it personal. Skill for skill the Canutillo QB is not close to the Franklin QB. Franklin QB has some faults but he has a lot more than the other QB.
As the Bowie QB's dad I went from disappointed to insulted
I thought he should've gotten a chance to showcase at a showcase game
Thanks for the opportunity
Franklin QB showed nothing today, the only mechanics he showed was that he was slow and an inaccurate passer. And not very tough. So keep dreaming
Whatever man, but on signing day make sure you come back on here and discuss. His day was not as bad as the Canutillo QB. Come on open your eyes. I will even humor you. Canutillo QB is the best in the city, ok. He will go D1.
Canutillo QB won't play college football what he is is a leader and a winner.
unfortunately there has definately been a shift in talent in our city
neither west qb should have been in the game. there were better choices. why not evan aguilar, the kid from bowie or anyone for that matter. those qbs embarrassed the westside plain and simple. we all know why hatch made it......
I agree and well said. I hope these athletes have their highlights, transcript, and letter of interests ready to send to the colleges/universities. There is hope but it is also late in the game if it is has not been done. I have spoken to many parents and they are under the assumption that these college coaches will appear at their home asking for their son. That does not happen. The competition is so high at all levels. They should have been proactive getting on coaches radar months ago vs trying to do it last minute.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the East will dominate over the West next year as well. Just so you know.
6a vs 5a would be cool.......but still unfair
Split the game into six teams
East(Montwood, Eastwood, Americas,Hanks, Bel Air, Faith Christian)
West(Franklin,Coronado,Canutillo, El Paso, Anthony)
Northeast(Andress, Parkland, Chapin, Irvin)
Central(Bowie, Burges, Austin, Jefferson, Cathedral)
Lower Valley(Del Valle, Ysleta, Clint, Riverside, Socorro, San Elizario)
Far East(El Dorado, Pebble Hills, Eastlake, Horizon, Mountain View, Tornillo)
More All- Stars, more people would support , more games,
Set up a tournament
East practice at Eastwood
West practice at Franklin
Far East at Pebble Hills
Lower Valley at Del Valle
Northeast at Parkland
Central at new Jefferson if it is ready
Staff would be made up of the head coach from each team+1.
Players would be chosen by this staff.
Better teams more players 1st 8, 2nd-7, 3rds -6, 4th -5 , 5th-4 , 6th -3.
Sorry King but that is ludicrous. No way will that work believe me I know and I know this because I'm Juco.
I think they should keep the same system. Maybe change out the coaches. It's not like the west squad didn't have talented players. It's mare about building chemistry in a short time.
