Just a suggestion...

If I could just make a suggestion to Epgridiron. There are so many gridiron studs in this great football city. Maybe you could rotate feature photos on the cover page a little more frequently. We have been seeing Barfield (very deserving player) on the cover for about 4 months. I would rotate that photo at least weekly during the season.

Re: Just a suggestion...

Unless EP Gridiron has some special criteria for a player to be featured on their main page, I think it's a good idea to feature a different player each week.

Re: Just a suggestion...

I am pretty sure those are just the kids that have been offered scholarships that EP Gridiron knows about. If there are any others y'all should let them know

Re: Just a suggestion...

For years EPG would feature different players from different teams on their front page and on a daily basis. Obviously this year so far they are not doing that. Maybe now they only care about those local players who have Division 1 offers. They are probably changing their format or the way they do things.

So my thinking is when a kid or kids get a Division 1 offer or offers I am sure EPG will most likely feature him or them on their front page.

You know EPG does highlight and feature players on their youtube page and their twitter and facebook pages and I think they do a great job.

But yeah it would be great if we saw different players on their front page again like years past because afterall I am sure there are alot of kids out there from youth football, middle school football to high school football that have been wanting and dreaming to someday be on the front page of EPG.

Re: Just a suggestion...

It's only natural to want more for our kids but we should appreciate what EP Gridiron has done and been doing.

Re: Just a suggestion...

El Paso HS football teams and its players have their Booster Clubs featuring them on their twitter and facebook pages and they also have

El Paso Times
El Paso Harold Post
KROD 600am
Borderland Blitz
NC9 overtime
Football Fever 4

I say that is more than enough for the teams and players of our local area.

Look in my opinion EP Gridiron does not need to upload videos or post pictures or have a twitter or facebook page. All they should have is this EP Gridiron forum and that's it. The booster clubs and local media already do more than enough featuring El Paso HS football teams and its players.

I agree. We love our kids and we want the best for them. The problem is that EPG does such a great job highlighting football here in El Paso and this forum is great that we all want more from EPG.

Eastsider you're right the El Paso local area football teams and football players receive more than enough coverage by the local media but when EP Gridiron does video stuff like this EP Gridiron is priceless.







EP Gridiron brings something special that separates them from the local media reason why a lot of people including myself want alot more out of EP Gridiron.

Forget them doing a magazine that is dumb because that is what they already have with this website and their social media pages and youtube videos. What they should have is a Weekly live show. That would be cool!!!

A Live weekly show is a great idea. Instead of EP Gridiron getting coaches to be on the show they should get players and from time to time have people who post in this forum on their show.

Re: Just a suggestion...

Not trying to rain on y'alls parade, but there is a reason they will not do that stuff and that is because of money. They tried to make this sight better by charging people for it and nobody would pay, so now it is pretty basic as far as design and features.

Finally someone said it. I wanted to post that but noone likes to talk about reality instead most like to dream.

It takes money to make things and especially to make things better. Last year if we all remember EP Gridiron was asking for donations as they were going to shutdown. I donated but not many did. Anyways we as parents and the players are lucky to still have EP Gridiron around. I donated last year because I really believe having EP Gridiron around inspires our players and inspires the local media and booster clubs to do a better job which is a win win for the teams and all of El Paso football in general.

It's not what EP Gridiron should do for us it's what we should do for EP Gridiron.

Show EP Gridiron the money and if you're not going to show EP Gridiron the money then don't post suggestions to them or ask them for things just be content you are getting stuff for free from them.

Re: Just a suggestion...

EPGridiron can easily change the content of their main page as they already have a website and have content like videos and pictures and they have done it every season before this season.

EPGridiron can easily do a live show as they already have a youtube account and you can stream live on youtube.

EPGridiron can easily do a magazine as they must know a lot of photographers by looking at all the photos they upload on their social media pages.

EPGridiron can easily write articles on teams, players, and games as that is easy to do.

EPGridiron can easily sell EPGridiron gear as EPGridiron is well known.

EPGridiron can easily have a EPGridiron Bowl Game as they are popular and EP Gridiron is well known.

There must be a reason why EPGridiron is not doing all of that and a whole lot more and the reason of not doing a lot more can't only be about the money thing. Something else must be the reason.

Re: Just a suggestion...

Maybe donating a little cash to epgridiron n maybe they'll put your kid on the front page!

Again, they did all that before and last year they asked for donations so they could continue to do that and more. Everything you listed takes time and time is not free. If you remember EPGridiron used to write out the schedule a for each team, now it is a link to the district schedule. They are making the sight very basic because they aren't making any money off of it. At least they left the forum up.

Re: Just a suggestion...

I also noticed that about the schedules. EP Gridiron for years had team schedules with game finals and also with coaching records. I no longer see them on the site. They don't even have their MVP page anymore.

Re: Just a suggestion...

What more do you all want??? They upload videos on youtube and they post lots of stuff on their twitter, facebook and instagram pages. If you ask me that's way more than enough especially if they are not getting paid for what they are doing. If some of you want more from them contact them and write them a check or give them some cash and then give them your suggestions or ideas.

Re: Just a suggestion...

We all want more from EPG.

I will say this and I know others would agree. If EPG was not around El Paso HS football would not be so loud. What I mean by loud is that EP Gridiron is screaming LOOK AT EL PASO HS FOOTBALL to the world through the internet. EPG makes me follow El Paso HS football. They make El Paso HS football exciting. Lets all just be happy they are still doing what they are doing for El Paso HS football.

EP Gridiron the Magazine


I know some people who started a El Paso football magazine some years back and they didn't last long. They lasted only 2 seasons. They did not make any money off of it and local businesses were not interested in getting their business ads in it. So a magazine is a very bad idea.

a EP GRIDIRON BOWL game would be perfect!!!

The best El Paso junior and senior players playing the best Las Cruces junior and senior players. Yeah I know most high school coaches won't approve of the juniors playing in this Bowl game as they don't want them to get injured for the following season but yeah anyways it would still be successful with only seniors. I said juniors because there are a lot of juniors that are more talented than seniors and juniors would have the opportunity to get noticed by college scouts. Anyways yeah a EP GRIDIRON BOWL game would kickass!!!
