Anthony Crank--Eastwood


Totally agree. Eastwood talent all around.

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

Nice Corner or Safety? Definitly will keep an eye out for him

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

He has a hudl link?

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

He looks good!

These guys look good! Still waiting on the hudl from the Eastwood kid. We can compare McClain-Green and Spiers for now, look pretty similar.

Look out for Dorian Mendoza Socorro #6

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

Great looking kids

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

My top 3 going off of last years film.

1) Meraz a senior from Ysleta.
2) McClain-Green a junior from Franklin
3) Spires a senior from Pebble Hills

On the bubble: Seabrook from Coronado.

Too small.

McClain-Green is good but also undersized.

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

Not sure what your comment means brother. I don't know the size of any of these kids, but enlighten me too small for what? To be a top defensive back in El Paso? Because that's what we are discussing.. Everyone who posted links on these kids seem to be returning starters. Just look at everyone's film and list your rankings as you see it.

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

Still waiting on footage of Dorian Mendoza from Socorro if anyone has any.

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

Coronado has one of the best secondaries in the city this year with 4 starters returning.

Josh Alvarez
Jonathan Seabrook
Andrew Abarca

Coronados defense looks strong

With today's offenses WR do a lot of blocking on swing passes & quick outside passes. I've watched both those CB's get easily blocked out while a reverse was ran & scored on.

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

Ok got it, but how do you rank them? Who are the too defensive backs in the city. By the way film shows different to what you are stating about those guys... they both had 40+ tackles one of them being a sophomore at the corner position.... what else can you ask for?

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

I appreciate your positive approach here on the forum but those kids won't put those plays in their highlights but they exist I promise.

Thanks Spartan dad

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

Nice. Show me some of those plays you are referring to. Just one or two....

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

The mendoza kid is gritty! I like him. @ spartan dad is there any way you can post all 5 of these kids hudl links in a comment. It's not allowing me. Then we all can compare in one central comment.

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

Lol thanks brother. I'm sure you have nothing against the kid it must be where he attends school. Did you check out Mendoza? He looks good as well.

However still cant find a hudl page for him. I believe he was 1st team all district last year.

Re: 2017 (5) Top Defensive Backs? 5A/6A (Top Defensive back)

Was he a senior last year? Maybe that's why.
