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?
