Much props to El Paso Football, are region is finally noticed. Thanks to EP Gridiron, Greater El Paso Football Showcase Combine, Coaches, Parents Etc...
When it is a said and done this should be the class with the most D1 commits ever in El Paso. Everyone keep grinding and working for it. El Paso is on the Come Up!!!
Deion Hankins is one of the most prolific players to come out of El Paso. He is very deserving the All-State running Back has NFL- Type attributes all ready.
Lyles, Gerber, Montez, Gardiner, and Lavea are very worthy. I can’t wait to once again see this talent come football season in the fall.
Others with D-1 potential are McKeever and Knight (Chapin), two headed monster Jones, Lewis, (Andress), any other D-1ayers out there??????
What class has produced the most D-1commits ever?
Absolutely King loads of props to EP Gridiron. EP Gridiron is doing a hell of a job they always have been like for the past 10 to 15 years. It's obvious with social media now to see what EP Gridiron has been doing all these years in the back of the curtain so to speak. We are all now able to see it happening almost in real time. We are able to see how EP Gridiron has been functioning in promoting their hand picked targets so to speak to division 1 programs. I have been saying this and others also have been saying in this forum about EP Gridiron over the years of what they really do. EP Gridiron is 365 days. I've been told by some parents that EP Gridiron had told them in advance which division 1 program or programs are interested in their kid and eventually that program or programs emailed, messaged and then called them. These parents are the ones that can tell us more of what EP Gridiron has been doing over the years better than me.
Also loads of props to the Greater El Paso football showcase with the combine at the end of the year to get local players noticed by division 2 and 3 and NAIA programs. This combine is great for those players that went unnoticed by division 1 programs and have the opportunity to be seen and offered by division 2 and 3 and NAIA programs. Local players are fortunate to have this combine. Again loads of props to EP Gridiron for the way they promote this combine. Word is that EP Gridiron played a key role in helping get this combine started. Those old topics are no longer in this forum but the word was before the combine even became a reality that one of the owners of the Houston Texans who had the idea for the combine and was going to fund it contacted the owner of EP Gridiron and that the owner of EP Gridiron met with director of athletics of school districts and also other people. There was more to it but can't recall all of it. I'm just glad the local players have this combine and the opportunity to be noticed by division 2 and 3 and NAIA programs.
And ofcourse props to the high school coaches. Alot of the coaches do so much for their players and their teams. I know some don't but most of them do. These high school coaches sacrifice so much for their players and teams. The way I see it high school coaches run the factory and EP Gridiron with what they do and also the Greater El Paso football showcase with what it does packages and wraps up the products and ships them out.
Like you said King props to the parents. Most not all parents but most support their kids. It all starts at home.
Will class of 2018-2019 be the class with the MOST D1 recruits?? Well King if EP Gridiron keeps promoting their targets and if the coaches and parents are on top of the kids about their academics and listen to their teachers and if the kids keep working hard to get better and listen to their coaches it might be.
There are hundreds of D-1 coaches following EPG on twitter which means that whatever EPG post on their twitter page those D-1 coaches instantly get it on their main home twitter page. Hundreds of D-1 coaches don't just follow anyone. It's obvious that EPG has a connection with D-1 coaches and that is the truth.
Juco what EP Gridiron does extremely well is the way they sell their selected players. So Juco the analogy that you used by saying that high school coaches are like the factory and EP Gridiron packs and ships the product out. Juco you forgot to mention the sales part of it all. A salesperson has to sell the product before the packing and shipping of the product. Which brings me to say this. EP Gridiron selects the products from the factory and then promotes and sells the products and then ships the products out to Div. 1 programs.
If you look really good at EP Gridiron's twitter it's obvious that EP Gridiron has targeted certain El Paso players. I think starting around January of this year on their twitter pages they have heavily targeted these players. EP Gridiron is obviously selling so to speak these products to the hundreds of recruiters that are following them on twitter.
Deion Hankins has offers
Khatib Lyles has offers
Lama Lavea has offer
Caleb Gerber has offer
Raymond Montez has offer
Karch Gardiner has offer
Christian Mckeever no offer
Jalen Joseph no offer
Jay McKnight no offer
Dorian Lewis no offer
EP Gridiron for months has been promoting players that did not or do not have offers just look at their twitter and go months back. What we don't know is how much promoting of players is EP Gridiron doing by email. It has been said in this forum over the years that EP Gridiron does most of their promoting of players to college coaches by personal email.
Lyles is making serious noise! Product of Franklin hell of a job kid. Between Lyles and McClain they are by far the highest recruited athletes to come out of Franklin. Maybe in the city. I know Juco probably has more knowledge than I do on big time recruited athletes from EP.
Andress has more children that may receive offers, but Andress is always slept on on this forum mainly because most of our athletes play 2 aports and sometimes can’t make the combines that the one sport athletes can. Most of the children receiving offers are very deserving of being recruited. El Paso has been slept on far too long, finally college coaches are seeing what’s out here in the desert Southwest. Speaking of the GEPFSC put together a mock draft since this is drafting season lol. Great job EPG.
