2018 El Paso, Texas HS Football Rankings

Bummed that EP Gridiron did not put their preseason rankings for this season? Don't be your Uncle Rico has you covered!

UNCLE RICO'S 2018 PRESEASON TOP 10 RANKINGS

#1 Chapin Huskies
#2 Andress Eagles
#3 Coronado Thunderbirds
#4 Franklin Cougars
#5 Del Valle Conquistadors
#6 Parkland Matadors
#7 Americas Trailblazers
#8 Eastlake Falcons
#9 Montwood Rams
#10 Pebble Hills

Yesterday I emailed EP Gridiron asking for a forum password and also asked if they are leaving this forum up for this season. They sent me a password but did not answer my question about the forum. I presume with them sending me my password that it will be. Guess we'll just have to wait and see. Anyways if the forum does stay up I'm going to try to do what EP Gridiron did for years with their rankings. When the season starts I'm going to update my Top 10 rankings every Saturday or Sunday.

If anyone disagrees with my preseason top 10 rankings or my future updated rankings that's just fine by me and please be my guest to post your preseason top 10 and update them every Saturday or Sunday as I will be doing so that we can compare and contrast. Oh and how much you wanna make a bet I can throw a football over them mountains? Yeah f Coach woulda put me in fourth quarter, we would've been state champions. No doubt. No doubt in my mind.

Re: 2018 El Paso, Texas HS Football Rankings

Here are my Preseason Rankings. It's how I see the El Paso teams finishing when the 2018 season is all said and done.

No. 1 Chapin
No. 2 Andress
No. 3 Franklin
No. 4 Parkland
No. 5 Coronado
No. 6 Eastlake
No. 7 Montwood
No. 8 Del Valle
No. 9 Burges
No. 10 Ysleta

Re: 2018 El Paso, Texas HS Football Rankings

Ah come on dudes. All of you don't know anything.
Parkland should be everyone's preseason #1 top pick. The Texas high school coaches association ranked Parkland #1.

PARKLAND #1

Re: 2018 El Paso, Texas HS Football Rankings

BeastofNE sorry but the THSCA is not viewed by everyone as the reliable and credible source when it comes to rankings and besides BeastofNE they ranked Parkland #1 in only Class 5A Division 2 Region 1 they did not rank Parkland #1 in the entire State of Texas or the entire city of El Paso. These preseason rankings usually are voted on by some coaches and they usually go by what happened last season. BeastofNE last year was last year. Parkland lost great defensive players and their great QB.

THSCA preseason ranked Parkland #1 only in Class 5A Division 2 Region 1
http://www.theathleticsdepartment.com/football/poll/coaches/?yr=2018&clas=2
http://realignment.uiltexas.org/alignments/2018/5AD2FB.pdf

As you can clearly see THSCA has Parkland above only these El Paso area teams Canutillo, Horizon, Hanks, Riverside, Ysleta, El Paso High, Andress, Austin, Bowie, Burges, Irvin, and Jefferson who are in Class 5A Division 2 Region 1.

Once again here are my Preseason Rankings and it's how I see the El Paso teams finishing when the 2018 season is all said and done.

No. 1 Chapin
No. 2 Andress
No. 3 Franklin
No. 4 Parkland
No. 5 Coronado
No. 6 Eastlake
No. 7 Montwood
No. 8 Del Valle
No. 9 Burges
No. 10 Ysleta

Re: 2018 El Paso, Texas HS Football Rankings

You people ranking Franklin that high are off your rockers. Coronado gonna surprise in a mega kinda of way this season.

My Top 4 that will WIN their District ~ #1 Coronado #2 Parkland #3 Chapin #4 Andress

Re: 2018 El Paso, Texas HS Football Rankings

I just posted on the WTH EPG thread that EP Gridiron not doing El Paso, TX football is already having a negative impact because by this time every year they would be doing a lot on the new season coming up such as uploading video highlights and photos of which players to watch. I also said that their power ratings and rankings would be up by this time. Then here I come to find a thread started by Uncle Rico with preseason predictions nice!!! We don't have EP Gridiron's preseason ratings and rankings to put side by side to our predictions and critic all of them but that's ok atleast we have something to get our excitement up for a new season. Something is better than nothing. Anyways my preseason predictions are Montwood #1 ofcourse. Parkland #2 just because of Deion Hankins. Andress #3 because they are in a weak district. Del Valle #4 but I can see Chapin beating Del Valle so I will rank Chapin #5 just in case they do. I really think Americas #6 is a sleeper and I can see them beating all 1-6A El Paso teams except ofcourse Montwood. Eastlake #7 they have great coaching and will keep their not so skilled players in the games and might upset either Del Valle or Chapin. A lot of you like Franklin me well I put them at #8. We are going to learn a lot from Burges when they play Parkland and if Burges somehow upsets Parkland things are going to get crazy in this city and especially in this forum so I will put Burges at #9 just in case crazy happens. At #10 I will put both Ysleta and Canutillo. Good luck everyone on your preseason predictions!!!

Re: 2018 El Paso, Texas HS Football Rankings

Franklin #1? Westsider and Edgar we're not ranking cheerleader squads here. The ranking of varsity football squads is what this thread is about. Oh and I kid you not back in '82, I used to be able to toss a pigskin a quarter of a mile.

You will have a weak schedule in the regular season, competition want start for you guys until the 3rd are 4th round in the playoffs, so yes I agree you will be the last team standing....

Re: 2018 El Paso, Texas HS Football Rankings

You've gotta come up with a better insult than "empty trophy case" to a school that's had 1 season with a full team. Keep tryin....

Re: 2018 El Paso, Texas HS Football Rankings

Americas looking for a come back season, definitely hungry going to roll through district play.1-6A champs this year.
Montwood lost all offensive talent but still a powerhouse
Pebble hills still a young program but should win some games
Franklin OVERRATED
Coronado Shouldn’t win more then 3 games, bad coaching no talent
Socorro... enough said

Montwood still a powerhouse? Good luck with that opinion. Honestly I see Americas only winning two district games beating Pebble Hills and Socorro. I also don't see Pebble Hills winning one single district game this season yes Socorro will upset them. Franklin will win District you can take that to the bank. You are right about Coronado though.

Re: 2018 El Paso, Texas HS Football Rankings

Chapin will be the only team out of El Paso that will make any noise in the playoffs against out of town opponents. Montwood, Franklin, Del Valle, Andress and Parkland will have a great regular season but sorry against out of town opponents in the playoffs they will be one and done.

Yes Chapin will but don't go discounting Franklin.

Re: 2018 El Paso, Texas HS Football Rankings

I won't go saying that Eastwood ought to be everybody's #1 however I will go on to say that Eastwood is easily a Top 5 team this season.

Re: 2018 El Paso, Texas HS Football Rankings

1. Those 6a teams can beat Parkland but good job with DV and why is Burges up there

Eastsider, I can't believe you did not put ELDO in the top 10. Sure they have a new coach, but there talent along on the team will put them ranking in the top 10...

Note: Montwood O-Line lead by R.Lara has returning starters and are Strong and Quick. Best O-line combined in the City. QB J.Fernandez will have time to connect with his receivers. Speedy backs lead by C.Ramos will hit the gaps and gone. Defend lead by LB E.Ramirez are Solid and Fast. Montwood is looking awesome.

Looking at everyone's rankings so far seems most are sleeping on Pebble Hills.

But not everyone can be wrong should be cause for concern for Pebble Hills. I'm sure the coaches are addressing the issues on both sides of the ball.
