Can the Rams keep the momentum going by earning a victory against Midland next Thursday night?
Montwood will steam roll Midland next week! Franklin's defense only gave up 10 points against that team last night. I'm taking Rams!
What I saw from last nights team, the Rams continue to roll. Go Rams
The Rams are off to a great start!
Montwood Rams will win! Rams offense is hard to stop. Too many weapons!
I agree...the Rams defense was awesome. I like the energy and excitement that #33 Ruhl brings to the game. He should be a starter!
Linebackers rotate throughout the game always staying fresh. Everett is one of the best motivators I've seen in a long time. The energy and enthusiasm he brings to the table is second to none. When he got injured last year was devastating, especially after watching him give Frenship's RB (Garrison) such a headache last year. Great kid and great defense. Montwood looking solid on both sides of the ball. Corners need some more work but pretty good overall. Go Rams!!
I was thinking. Is this the first time ever where a El Paso team is going to the Basin region as big time favorites where all of El Paso and the rest of the State of Texas believe Montwood is going to crush a Basin team???
When did El Paso football make its 180 turnaround.
Years ago no one would even give El Paso teams a chance against Basin and Panhandle teams a chance and here we are for the past some years where El Paso teams are beating Panhandle and Basin teams.
I don't hear or read anywhere anyone talking about this 180 turnaround flipflop El Paso football has done. Why is that? Have we been expecting it all these years and now that things have turned and flipped we are all like ah I knew it it was all only a matter of time?
Midland will have a 2nd string at one of the corners: https://twitter.com/JakeGadon_TV/status/905482293971755008
Good luck tonight Rams. Bring home the W and hope everyone returns injury free. Godspeed. Go Rams!!!!

Well after watching Franklin put a pounding on Midland and here at this game watching Montwood play Midland it seems to me that both of these teams definitely do not have good defenses ,all of these touchdowns it seemed to me like its six-man football game, I am not a Franklin fan and not a Montwood fan but I do like to go watch good games and since I got to watch Franklin and I got to watch Montwood I definitely give a huge Edge to Franklin ,Franklin looks way more balanced then Montwood I went because a lot of people were making a big hype about the Rams well I must admit I'm not very impressed but a win's a win right
And before anybody gets all butt hurt this is my personal opinion I'm not hating on anybody just giving my own opinion.
Rams 58 Vs. Bulldogs 53 42 Seconds Remaining in the 4th Quarter
Montwood Rams 58 Vs. Midland Bulldogs 53
Midland had a different starting QB tonight then played against Franklin.
MONTWOOD fans my point is Franklin did not struggle at all against Midland and you guys well let's just say you did all night. Oh yeah I forgot you had the second string ,remember no excuses. You barely won by the skin of your teeth.LOL
Wow NO DEFENSE!
Great road win for the Rams!
Montwood pulled starters out in the third and had 2's in. The coach does that and it gets a little scary towards the end. Montwood did the exact thing last year at Franklin, Franklin was getting a beatin, in go the 2,s, Franklin starts making a comeback. Like the whole 2nd defense and offense. I personally don't like when the coach does that but he does and he did it here. Like in the game against Franklin and Midland the score doesn't really reflect how Montwood easily dominated their opponent.Regardless good game and a win is a win
Good win Rams. Represented El Paso well.
I saw the MW Head Coach on NBC9 Overtime trying to justify replacing his starters with 2nd and 3rd string players in the 3rd quarter and in my view he failed miserably. But I don't think he will be doing that again.
Bullcrap...you play to win period! That was a dumb move...and had Midland won you guys would be on here critisizing the Head Coach yourselves.
Your son must be on the second team! In that case I understand your need to defend the Coach. Good luck against Burges.
Why is no one crediting coach Veliz for Montwood's current success atleast a little bit of credit? Coach Veliz played Tyreese Andrus and Andrew Fernandez as Sophomores. You can dislike coach Veliz all you want but he played Sophomores and right now it's paying off for Montwood.
Just saying and no I'm not a Montwood fanatic or a bandwagon Montwood fanatic or a friend or relative of coach Veliz.
Coach Famaligi did great by playing and getting underclassmen experience and especially against Basin teams.
Head coaches blessed with a talented group of players who are able to put up lots of points on the scoreboard early and often ought to take advantage of that and peek a little bit into the future and plant those seeds here and there when the opportunity presents itself. It will pay dividends in the long run. It's a no brainer to do that.
I can't deny good talent when I see it and in my opinion, Andrus and Fernandez would have been successful on any team. That said, in my view Velez actually held them back by starting his juniors and seniors ahead of them even though they were probably better players, even as sophomores.
But back to the Midland game, Midland had the momentum in their favor going into the 4th quarter. The only thing that saved Montwood was the clock. Again, had Midland managed to come from behind and win the game. The headline would have read:
"Montwood blows 27 point lead in loss to Midland"
So all you very hypocritical MW fans/parents defending the Coach's decision would be bashing him right now on the forum. After all, this is ELP and bashing coaches is what we do best! A good example of this was the continuous bashing of Coach Velez on the forum during his last two seasons as Head Coach of the Rams, completely merciless bashing!
But anyway, this is my last post on this topic. You guys can have it but I'm moving on to Week 3.
Montwood could have easily won by more points , but the the second team came in and played early on 3rd and whole 4th quarter, but in my observation the rams need a lot of work in defense or change their D.C. For a better one, and special teams have been pretty bad the last to weeks , if they can solve this issues they will compete , I feel the program is good and with those adjustments at the varsity they will compete, the 9th grade team coaching staff is awful all those 9 grade coaches and some 100 some kids and they can't win , please do something about that coach Famaligi as parent and the rest parents it's upsetting,
