Being a NE Coach, this is the other game that intrigues me this week. Chapin is typically very strong defensively, but I see this as a bit of a blow out for Eastlake cementing itself as the top 5A team in town. Thoughts?
This should be a great game. Power run vs edge speed. I give a slight edge to Eastlake in a close one.
I'm surprised there's crickets all over this thread. Two tough teams going at it and no one cares to chime in. IMO, Eastlake takes this years contest, speed kills and the Falcons have plenty of it. Will be interesting to see what game plan Chapin comes out with to contain that speed. This is NC9 Game of the Week and no one cares. 🤔
Honestly I don't think it is a lack of interest in this game I just think it has to do with the people who get on this forum regularly. This forum is mainly 6A and Canutillo fans. Eastlake gets on when they play a 6A team or Del Valle or Canutillo. I have hardly seen Chapin fans get on recently. Next week I guarantee there will be a big thread on Chapin vs. Pebble Hills because Pebble Hills is all over this forum. I think it is going to be a great game. I am from the northeast so I will be pulling for Chapin in a very close game.
This is supposedly the game of the week by all the local media outlets and no one is commenting about this game on here LOL
Mountain view and Austin might as well be the game of the week
Hey King what's up brother I don't know I was a little stunned with your comments you and I know that you should never take Chapin lightly they are well-coached and they are a very good team for most of the times so that right there is a No-No but I know you're very hyped about this year's Falcons, but as I tell you I hope you won't be eating crow tomorrow LOL just joking but I hope you all do well. Aching make sure you keep us posted on that game buddy.
Well said King, yeah there's just some teams that I would never over look like Chapin and I know that you're not overlooking them like you said it's what you saw last week. Hey but what a big turnaround right when your team starts playing good defense, that wins games, you know coach Brooks over here with the Eagles preaches that year-in year-out, defense wins games. Well I hope you guys play good tomorrow and come out with a victory. You have a good one. Keep us posted buddy. Later
Del Valle/Americas game was delayed due to weather. Game is barely starting
Chapin looking good playing mistake free so far ...
Chapin looking good playing mistake free so far ...eastlake moving the ball well but to many mistakes in the redzone and drop passes their going to have to pick it up or They might drop this game as well..
I really really hope people have the courage to apologize?! These are some of the statements I read in this thread: 6 man football, blowout, take lightly, etc. Those are some funny and over reaction statements. I hope Chapin fans understand they have a good team, effective coaches and awesome season ahead of them. And to the haters, have the gonads to come on this site, apologize and state how wrong you were your prediction.
If socorro is the mijo for socorro isd than eastlake is definitely mija, always think they are something they are not, always told how pretty and special they are,
What did Chapin do differently from ELD in their win against Eastlake?
King let me tell you 1 thing my brotha Eastlake can play ANY SCHOOL in El Paso and you guys dont need to prove to anyone how GOOD the Falcons are ,just show them the HARDWARD n that will silence them or send them a 3 deep shirt.As for me i dont underestimate them at all n know they will move forward , Can't wait till they play Canutes. Until then fear the Faclons.Hows that crow coming along oh and i still have that 5 Deep shirt for you.LOL Later my Brother.
Feo please get out of here with the Pebble Hills talk. No offense to Coach Torres or his team but please realize that Pebble Hills is senior loaded this year. In all honesty they shouldn't lose to anyone in 1-6A with the exception of Montwood. I'm not trying to hate on Pebble Hills, but they beat Andress and now they think they are the New England Patriots. There are 8 more weeks in the regular season so let's just see how it plays out. Eastlake got beat, but I guarantee they'll be one of the strongest teams in the city come November just like Chapin, Del Valle, Canutillo, and Andress. I am excited to see how the rest of the season plays out.
Any chance these two could meet in the playoffs? They're both big school, aren't they?
