I think Eastwood is Gonna play lights out on Friday yes the "All Mighty MOJO" are coming but Eastwood can up some big points with this Offence so don't be shocked to see Eastwood take this one
Went back to check the boxscore and Eastwood led 28-21 heading into the 4th. Final was 55-34. Troopers turned the ball over 2 or 3 times in the 4th and that ended up being the turning point. This is a new year and a big opportunity for the Troopers to show they belong in the discussion of top teams in EP. I know one thing it is going to be packed, loud and crazy.
YISD got that bond money. Million$ on top of million$. YISD should try to buy off Permian to throw this game or atleast pay Permain to play their second stringers the entire game and see if Eastwood can beat their 2nd stringers.
I still think Permian's second stringers would beat Eastwood 56-0.
I'm interested in going to this game.
The boxscore mentioned earlier may be a bit misleading. It looks like Eastwood scored 3 of their 4 touchdowns in the 1st half off of Permian turnovers. Permian out-scored Eastwood 42-6 in the 2nd half, with 2 of their scores coming off of Eastwood turnovers. Looks like those 2 scores by Permian came late in the game off interceptions. I'm assuming Eastwood was in comeback mode at that point, so interceptions on long Hail-Mary type passes are understandable.
The good news-bad news is this. The good news is Permian still seems to be having a bit of a turnover problem, so maybe Eastwood will be able to capitalize on that. The bad news is, from what I'm reading and hearing Permian's defense is very much better than they were last season, and it appears that even when their offense has given up the ball, the defense has been able to bail them out.
The next question- Did Ochoa play last week? Will he play this week? Considering he was hurt in last years game vs. the Mojo, maybe coach is holding him out until the games really countZ?
It could be a barnburner, but in the end I think it will take a Mojo meltdown for Eastwood to pull the upset.
Your right it's not Last Year but We're better than Last Yr just Shut your Mouths and Let us Handle this You guys can all mouth off next week when we have a bye after beating Permian
Richie and Mark were great but So are the New Troopers Defence and Offence Both Qbs are good Both Running Backs and Our Receivers Our Defensive Ends and Linebackers want names too cause I can name about 10-15 kids that are just as good as mark and Richie in thier own positions
This Permian team is better than any we've seen from them this decade, and 200% over last year's team. But they do have to travel to El Paso and we all know the long trip, either way, does have an effect. This ought to be a good litmus test for both the Panthers and the Troopers.
Both Montwood and El Dorado beat Odessa Permian in the 2012 season.
Montwood beat Odessa Permian in predistrict and El Dorado eliminated Odessa Permian in the bidistrict 1st round of the Texas state playoffs and it's that season El Dorado went on to play Southlake Carroll.
2012 Montwood 34 Odessa Permian 30 (Montwood defeated Permian in predistrict)
2012 El Dorado 34 Odessa Permian 33 (El Dorado defeated Permian in the playoffs)
1960 Ysleta 31 Odessa Permian 21 (Ysleta defeated Permian in the playoffs)
Obviously Odessa Permian has El Paso teams number.
El Paso teams 3 wins against Permian in 55 to 60 some years.
Lots of luck Eastwood. Hopefully you're as good of a team as those 2012 Montwood and El Dorado teams were and are able to defeat Permian and make it 4 wins for the city of El Paso against Permian in 55 to 60 some years.
Eastwood is going to get destroyed just because they beat a weak bel air team they think theyre going to be district contenders
Mojo 77 Easywood 0

I'm hearing Permian may not have some key players for this game. Boys will be boys. Could give Eastwood a real shot at dominating this one.
Hope they can make a game of it. Good luck TROOPERS!
Guys I do not know if it is true or not but I heard that earlier today Odessa Permian on their way to El Paso stopped by Cattleman's to celebrate their 60 point win over Eastwood.
Yea Trooper X is not a Eastwood Supporter I really wish he wouldn't even talk about Eastwood he dislikes them so much he should just move to another school and bug them
Troopers winning 20-14 at half. They came out and scored on the first play. Officials are awful. They've already had several rules snafus. Pretty much both ways, although they messed up the Mojo big-time right before the half. They were in scoring position but refs did not stop the clock when they were suppose to. Instead of time for maybe three plays they only got one.
Fight in the Eastwood stands!
Eastwood 27 premium 49. Eastwood had 4 turnovers in 2nd half. Mojo scored twice in final 5 minutes.
Well my prediction above was that I thought Permian was going to beat Eastwood by 32 points. Ummmm I was kind of close.
Well, 10-10 is better than 7-8.
10-10 with 4 turnovers and a momentum changing interception. I guess still better that's better than 7-8 also. He will be good for Eastwood in years to come. Right now it's time for the senior to take his team on his back. Then next year it's the sophomores time he's going to be very good for Eastwood just not right now. District time Eastwood will be on top on the pack when it's said and done. Montwood and Eastwood will end up being the battle of the 2 best QB's in the city for the district title.
Not without that left tackle as soon as he got hurt everything shut down he's the heart and soul of that O line I think he's 74
10-10 with 4 turnovers and a momentum changing interception. I guess still better that's better than 7-8 also lol. Don't get me wrong #10 will be the next in line of great QB's for Eastwood. Right now it's time for the senior to take his team on his back. Then next year it's the sophomores time he's going to be very good for Eastwood just not right now. It's District time seth looked good for not playing for a yr. shook the cobwebs off got some reps. Eastwood will be on top of the pack when it's said and done. Montwood and Eastwood will end up being the battle of the 2 best QB's in the city for the district title.
Hahaha hanks parent still trolling eastwoods blog. Post on hanks blog. Oh wait there's not one. My bad, troll on!!!!
Glad to see Seth back...the Permian game was a good warm-up for him before Eastwood takes on Cedarious Barfield and the Aztecs on the 29th.
Barfield is not a true quarterback he s a great athlete but not true QB. Again that means the best 2 true QB's will be playing for the district title at the end of the season. True Ochoa hasn't done much yet, he was hurt. That doesnt take away for the fact that he is a very talented QB. All you have to do is come watch one game and you can see that right away. In the Games he has played he put up great stats and there's no reason to believe that type of play wont continue. You will see when they play Eldo in 2 weeks. I can't name 2 better Qb's that I have seen in El Paso, than Fernandez and Ochoa. Barfield is a running back playing QB because they want the ball in the hands of their best athlete he's not a true QB Its more of a wildcat set up. I wonder how many schools are actually recruiting Barfield as a QB as opposed to another position such as a DB or RB.
Ok if you want to go that route Ochoa had 700 passing in 2 and 1 qtr games before he got hurt. Barfield played 10 to get 3000. So do the math Ochoa was on pace to hit 3500 passing. Ochoa's completion % was also over 100 points higher than Barfield. if you want to compare that to last years stats or lets take Barfield's 1st 3 games this year as a senior compared to Ochoa's junior year. Ochoa played 2 games and 1 qtr. had 713 passing with a .729 completion %. This year in 3 games barfield has 658 yds passing and .581 completion %. Again ill stick to my guns and say Fernandez and Ochoa are the 2 best QB's in the City. Barfield and I would say Tyreese Andrus are the 2 best athletes in the city.
Ok Just for Fun. Im putting together a football team to rep EP. I have to choose Ochoa, fernandez or Barfield as my starter. Who gets the start. My lineup would be good with either Fernandez or Ochoa at QB before Barfield. Then I put Barfield at RB, then plug in Andrus at WR. I think the majority out there would agree. makes sense and that is why I said I think the 2 best QB's will be playing for the district title at the end of the year.
I appreciate the analysis and statistics, Big D. There's no doubt Ochoa is a talented QB. But here's the problem I have with inserting him into the top qb conversation: Imagine you are Barfield or Fernandez. You played a grueling 1-6A schedule last year. You busted you tail, developed your leadership skills, put in hours in the film room, the gym, stayed late to throw passes, studied, made mistakes, learned from them, had great moments and moments you'd like to have back. You endured all that, and put up big numbers. You EARNED the right to be called the best. Then here comes a kid with all the potential in the world and people call him one of the best (some on these threads straight out call him the best). It is disrespectful to the other two who have grinded for that honor.
Not taking anything away from Ochoa, as you mentioned he put up impressive numbers in the time he was on the field. But to call a kid the best at any position, you need a body of work in my opinion.
People who say a player is the best and that player didn't even play a full season or hasn't won atleast district is like Uncle Rico saying IF THIS AND IF THAT.
If I didn't gain all this weight I would have girls chasing me all day long like they used to in my high school days. My statistics with the girls in high school when I had abs of steel were through the roof. I was a chic magnet but man if only I hadn't gain all this weight I would be the best chic magnet around to this very day.
Green giant you are one slow dude. When did I ever post that he was a top 2 Qb? All I ever said was I thought he was one of the top QBs in the city. That is my opinion and it is perfectly fine if people disagree with that. Go back and read the posts. But to suggest that the other two guys were out working him because he was out with a season ending injury is absurd. And for the record he was 2-0 last year as the starter. You really just need to chill you get all worked up and angry whenever anyone posts something positive about the Eastwood program or players.
All this talk about Eastwood and their unproven players is nonsense at this point in time. All this sounds like the Franklin people thinking they are district contenders and a deep playoff team when their quarterback is also unproven. So much dreaming hoping positive and vision board crap going on. Give credit to those quarterbacks that are proven that have lead teams and won district and gone to the playoffs. Be in reality for a second and give those quarterbacks who have accomplished much some props.
