Who would you like your team to face in the new non-district schedules
I believe that every EP team should at least face one power house in pre district. Whether that be a NM power house or Tx it doesn’t matter. I would love for Chapin, Eastlake, Pebble Hills, Andress, Montwood all the top teams to play a team such as Abilene cooper, palo duro, everman a team that is know for winning and has had playoff success.
Heard Eastwood has Plano scheduled. That's a big time program! Wonder if they might keep Midland Christian and/or Permian.
Not from what I hear at the moment
Most of the 6a schools all play out of town opponents. I'm sure this trend will continue.
Wouldn't it be great if some how we could have a yearly triple or double header at the Sunbowl or SAC between RGV and El PASO schools for pre district? They could name it "The Rio Grande Classic".
I'm sure the biggest problem with all of this is the almighty dollar. I'm sure out districts don't want to pay.
Top 5A teams should try to schedule 6a teams (except Socorro). Since there will be a Division I and II split in 5a, maybe Andress can play Chapin, Eastlake or Del Valle. Andress will need tough non-district teams because their district will be even weaker if Chapin goes Div. I. Frenship had an a bad team this year so I'm not sure EP teams should schedule them again until their program improves again.
Franklin playing Copperas Cove was good, would like to see them try for San Angelo again.
6a teams to schedule should be Midland Lee and Permian. The Rio Rancho NM teams are very good too.
Our 6as already play those teams along with frenship Midland high Midland Christian
What would be nice is for two areas that get destroyed in playoffs to play against each other El Paso vs Rio Grande Valley teams. Although this is a logistical nightmare it can be done and would be nice to see.
If this goes through "Big statement being Made by Del Valle " Playing Aledo is one big bold move that's needed and worth watching !!!! Way to step up OFOD !!!!!
Del Valle tenatively slated to play Las Cruces Mayfield, Canutillo, Aledo, Americas in non-district football games next season.
The powers above have granted my wish and we will get Montwood traveling down to South Texas to play back to back area champs 32-6A Los Fresnos to kick off the season! This will pit two great programs who always get eliminated by the powerhouses in the later rounds in the playoffs. For those that do no recall Los Fresno's Coach Brown has ties to El Paso having coached Andress after Coach S and he also was an assistant at Franklin and Chapin.
We'll be moving to the Corpus Christi from EP, what high schools are solid educational/athletic schools?
Calallen and CC Veterans Memorial
Hard for me to support all this out of town travel when talking with a basketball coach whose teamed advanced to the play-offs and went out of town and the district would not even fund the coaches meals. If things are going to be like this, no teams should be going out of town in any sport. Why should FB always get preference?
In which district did this allegedly happen?
Basketball has no pull, just the way it is. Too bad.
I know plenty of basktball teams as well as other teams that teavelnout of town multiple times a year for tournaments so I think this is a lie.....oh and those travels are funded by football revenue
Pebble Hills official football twitter page reached out to Frenship today in a tweet requesting to play at Lubbock of week 2 next year. Word is they have San Angelo scheduled also. Now will the criticism of them not playing out of town teams finally stop?

That's a tough slate for DV
Thanks! Looks like a good slate.
yes, canutillo is playing coronado.
Spartan non-district matchups:
We are gonna play Coronado again for the 3rd year straight we haven’t lost to them and we always scrimmage franklin every year
Ysleta's non district schedule is weak. They should be undefeated heading into their district games.
I see Plano winning by at least 3 td s.
They had a very successful freshman and JV campaign. Kids moving up to compete at the varsity level and the main part a firm foundation. I used to hear the same thing about Montwood, El Dorado, Franklin etc when a group of seniors departed. Again there is a solid foundation that has been established and a plethora of kids hungry to keep getting better. Don't sleep on these kids.
I was about to say essentially the same thing. I believe that they are doing a good job developing that talent over there. A solid group of youngsters will keep them in playoff contention ging into this season.
