Competition gets tougher for the Matators. Just like any other DFW team, Richland has size and speed. Richland has a stud LB that is committed to Texas A&M and more than likely will key on shutting down Hankins. Parkland will have to play mistake free and not give Richland any easy opportunities.
I heard 1:00 pm Saturday, at Jones Stadium, Lubbock.
Parkland head coach was on Texas Football Today show. Interview starts at 19:00 minute
The reason why people say the third round is tough for El Paso is because in history only one team from El Paso has ever won...in fact most of the years a team that has gotten to the third round El Paso teams get blown out...so you can understand why there's trepidation..
Parkland has a punchers chance for sure..Round 3 everyone is good and mistakes are magnified...good luck to the Mats, I think they will score points but the key will be can their defense make plays against Richland...
Richland is a solid team, very little tradition to speak of only been to the third round once in school history...finished third in their district behind Colleyville Heritage and Grapevine (who lost to Aledo last week)...LB is a stud committed to A&M and the WR Rice is a junior and holds multiple D1 offers..I actually haven't seen them in person this year but they generally are solid up front and have decent team speed.....aside from the stud LB I do think the defense is suspect
If Abilene Cooper pulled off the massive upset of Aledo; I'd say Parkland has a shot because Cooper is suspect on D....Aledo?? Not pretty..
Parkland players, Parkland fans and El Paso, TX football fans don't listen to these idiots like Koolarrow and Matt Stepp. Everyone knows there are lots of better teams out there on paper and film and that these teams are highly favored teams who have more talent and better coaching and overall superb programs but the games still have to be played so absolutely nothing is set in stone.
I remember everyone was against my boy and his Canutillo teammates in 2014. People like Koolarrow and Matt Stepp were saying that San Angelo Lakeview would beat Canutillo in the second round and our Eagles beat San Angelo Lakeview. Then after that those same idiots said Azle would beat Canutillo in the third round and our Eagles beat them also. Then after that those same idiots said Everman would beat Canutillo in the fourth round and our Eagles beat them as well. Then after that those same jackbutts said Ennis would beat Canutillo and they finally got their guess right but point of all this is that those dummies guess more wrong than guess right.
Give them hell Parkland and don't worry about these idiots they just live off favorites. Davids everyday throughout the world beat Goliaths but rarely do people write about the Davids. It's easy to predict the Goliaths over the Davids it's a no brainer. These guys like Koolarrow and Matt Stepp don't know crap they just live their lives picking the Goliaths. They watch film, scan through statistics and just like that they will pick the Goliaths with more talent, speed, better stats, more ncaa d1 prospects and coaching. Anyone can do that. I know that alot of 6th graders can kick a 4th graders butt majority of the time but there are 3rd graders from time to time that can kick 4th and 5th and 6th graders butts every now and then. Believe me I've seen it back in the day.
Lol did this guy just say that they only pick these teams because they are bigger faster strong Dr and he more d1s lol.....we'll yeah that is how you predict a winner smh. Bottom line is canutillo had the perfect storm in 14. Made small school played only teams that finished 3rd or 4th in district. Period and that is it. Parkland had a good draw this year. I hope they beat rich land but trust in the fact that aledo is a different entity. .....
Koolarrow you should call Parkland head coach E Frontz and his assistants and tell them to not bother watching footage on Richland and not to bother with practicing this week. Tell them to forfeit and reserve the embarrassment. Go ahead do it 9154346000
In 2014 Canutillo did play some teams that finished 3rd and 4th in their district but Azle were district champions and they were 11-1 going into the game vs the Eagles. I then watched them hang tough vs Ennis (eventual champions) through 2 and a half quarters. Score was 20-13, never in my life did I expect an El Paso team to compete against a title contender, even if the final score showed a complete blowout.
Good luck to the Matadors! They were the only team I thought had a chance to advance last week so of course I think they have a chance to win this week. I don't know how big a chance it is but I hope they play their best game of their lives!
Actually Upper Valley I picked Canutillo to win Region I that year, including them beating my alma mater in the State Quarter-Finals....so please pump the brakes on the name calling
Everyone can make themselves believe what they want, if you want that narrative of us against the world be my guest....lol
If i pick against a team its because I think they are gonna lose, its nothing personal...its business....I pick upsets all the time, sometimes it happens sometimes it doesnt..luckily I'm right a lot more than I am wrong...
UV and BO both still think Hillary won...
You sounded like a denier of something due to disagreement alone, thus I made a jest.
Thanks for the Trump clip. I found it, and a few related suggestions, interesting.
My first reply was jest, my second was not, and your recommendation is repugnant.
I did not have Parkland winning area but there are folks in Canutillo who know I picked them back in 2014...had breakfast with one in October at Los Barilles when I was in town...but hey believe what you want....my reputation speaks for itself in the industry I have no reason to lie
Behave yourselves and stop acting like little girls. You girls totally hijacked this Parkland thread and made it into a Matt Stepp and Canutillo thread.
I think Parkland will win 97-3. Richland only gets the 3 when Parkland 2/3's go in.
