What would El Paso football be without FT Bliss? It would be the same which is usually no EL Paso teams playing after thanksgiving.
Two things happen in El Paso that have help its football programs grow. The military growing and mass hiring of government employees has brought many kids to El Paso that have improve programs around our city. This happen in the early 2000's, that's why I believe teams have had more success against out of town teams. This is good for not just our high school football but our city.
Ima say this though. The perennial best teams are not teams full of military kids.
Those other teams in the state that are doing good is due to other reasons other than military or money in the city, GENETICS; coaching; offseason and during season training, kids playing at a young age with solid programs which is being shown in EP lately. Yes military families and economic status has something to do with it but its a small percentage; let's look at last years title winners:
6A DIV 2: Longview population: 80K (2010); median income family: 42K
6A DIV 1: Galena Park North Shore population: 10K (2010); median income family: 34K
5A DIV 1: Dallas Highland Park population: 9K (est. 2018); median income: 200K ------ we all know this town/school is full of money and runs the UIL
5A DIV 2: Aledo population: 4K (est. 2018); median income: 56K
4A DIV 1: Waco (Bellmead) La Vega population: 9K (2010); median income 34K
4A DIV 2: Cuero population: 8K (est. 2018); median income: 29K
El Paso population: 682K (not including the metro area); median income: 50K
Canutillo population: 6K (2010); median income: 22K
Horizon City population: 19K (est. 2018); median income: 54K
It helps alot but the talent that does come with it gets spread out into all the school, and thats ok nothing wrong with it
The same, *******
Theres no fort bliss teams IDIOT
So gtfo outta here
