Re: Round 2

pretty much right El Paso schools are not different than most schools in the state. The Highland Parks,
Aledos, Denton Ryans are dominating the state right now, Canutillo was a once that one team every 20 to 25 years
that just had a great year and a good draw. El Paso it no closer ow than it was 20 to 30 years ago but I guess that it ok.
It fives the kids something to do for the fall now on to Basketball
From 1980 to 2000 no El Paso team beat an out of town playoff opponent. Andress tied and advanced with Mickens. That was it. Teams in the area have come a long way but there’s still some progress that can be made!
The reason for this is do to the evolution of football. From 1980-2000 it was all about power football, run first offensive schemes which El Paso has never had the size in players to be able to run those offensive schemes. After 2000, the evolution changed to pass happy spread offensive schemes. El Paso has always had fast smaller players that fit this way of playing.

Re: Round 2

If you were at the game, Americas got a few favorable calls and spotting of the ball.

MARK THIS COMMENT...bookmark it..screenshot it...make a tatoo out of it...no one will advance from 915 area code. Its all east texas...one El Paso is out of the picture..that's when the playoffs begin...East Texas has always ruled and will continue the trend. Why? Why you ask? Why does El Paso always lose? 2 things kids...and whispering...don't tell anyone I told you...2 things that seperates us...east of odessa and midland...2 things your coaches and players have failed to understand...1. Nutrition and genetics builds big strong athletes...2. Work ethic. The coaches here in East Texas are mere facilators. The players take matters on their own time and will. Transform the body and mind. Coaches in West Texas are PE teachers.
Idk from what ive seen el paso teams definitely have the size and speed to compete. The demographics too. So i dont think thats the reason

I did watch the game. And the placement of the ball was off the entire game, but not in Americas favor. I was watching the game with several refs and time and again they stated that the ball placement was incorrect. And there were several holding penalties that were not called against Friendship. So all in all the calls went Friendships way. That's how it goes. It wasn't a perfectly officiated game, but it wasn't the worse I've ever seen. Both sides played hard and it didn't come down to the refs, it came down to the players making plays at the end.

Re: Round 2

On the 2 point conversion for Americas, #22 hips clearly hit the ground before the pile moved over the goal line. And some third down conversions for Americas were very questionable. Ummm

Did americas not rush for like 500 yards your head coach and defensive coordinator need to be fired. Without the qb frenship is bottom.of the barrel so since he's graduating welcome back to the bottom

Re: Round 2

It was a very good game. To bad that the Refs had to help Americas with the win. You should request the same officials for the Arlington game.

So you know refs for the playoffs dont come from the areas where either team is from correct. And I ask again didn't yall give up like 500 rushing how does that happen.

Can't you come up with new material. I saw you comment the same thing on another thread. Here's a thought, stop worrying about El Paso teams and worry about your mighty Panhandle team.

Re: Round 2

You know the Refs gave you some first downs and the 2 points. Period!

Re: Round 2

Not exactly. After 2000 two things happen in El Paso. The major beef up of both the military and federal agencies. We have many kids going to El Paso High schools that weren't born in El Paso but are kids that parents relocated due to the military or government job. Nothing wrong with that, it has help us improve and compete little better.
