Let’s be honest, we are not competing for a state championship in the state of Texas anytime soon. And geographically, playing in Texas makes no sense. Wouldn’t we rather have a bidistrict game in las cruces rather than Odessa!? I mean we just have to face that El Paso talent will never equate to the likes of the metroplex, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and heck even the Permian basin. If we were playing in New Mexico we would be the KINGS of high school sports. Teams like franklin, parkland and America’s would THRIVE. To everyone who says “yeah well this is TXHSFB and that’s how we like it. NO. East of here is TXHSFB, because those are the teams that are close geographically and that compete for state year in and year out. Heck, even the VALLEY makes it at least to round three every year! And El Paso teams would blow the breaks off of them! But, they get a break geographically, which is why they even make it in the first place. But we have to get out of this mindset, and ****, it all starts with MOVING that **** all star game! I mean are you kidding me?!?!? We’re gonna schedule our all star game where “the best of the best” play on the same weekend when the real best of the best are playing for a state championship?!?!? Has had me upset for YEARS. so what do you all think about switching to a New Mexico schedule?
The valley makes it to round 3 because the 1st and 2nd round are against valley teams. Do your home work. Then they get rolled by San Antonio and Austin.
I'm not even going to engage you today
But we are not in Texas. I get what you're saying. We have better teams than New Mexico because they fund their schools alot differently. Their budgets are like a cross country budget. Their head coaches are paid like a 9th grade el paso coach. They dont have spring ball. Be careful what you wish for.
6A and 5A teams should play the top teams from New Mexico in non-district. Del Valle has played schools from Rio Rancho and Cruces. As someone mentioned Franklin didn play and beat Rio Rancho Cleveland.
Didnt a new mex team roll del valle last year? Lol
Weslaco East is 6A. Manor is 5A and didn’t win their region. They also lost 6 games out of 14. They lost to many teams. Del Valle has lost to Mayfield recently. They beat Cleveland in 2014 and lost to them in 2015. Montwood split their series with Los Fresnos.
Last realignment Weslaco East had 2238 students. That put them in 6A, clearly. Manor still didn’t win their region.
EP is not better than the RGV, I’ve experienced both EP and RGV; I played football in EP and my son played youth football in EP. He now plays at Edinburg Vela and by far RGV has better off football than EP now like EP we’ll never make it deep in state in the 6A ranks but if you’ve seen our 5A teams and even 4A teams we’ve been a lot closer consistently than EP has what was it Canutillo 2012.
New Mexico is watered down football!
Stop they just dont want to admit that the city if el paso is better than the valley period. Please dont claim calallen as they arent a valley school their demographic is much different if you know what I mean. Edinburgh would be destroyed
Well then tell the coaches to step the heck up. I am for our whole city that's who. Everyone want to talk about that fort bliss mess. The 3 best teams in el paso dont have a high majority if military kids so that argument is nul and void.
Of course he does and until he plays us he can maintain that they are better but I can say categorically that el paso is better then the valley. But guess we will never know because they womt step up. The valley playoff road is much easier than el paso. El paso 6as have to play DFW in the second round. Keep it or have then step up. I'm sure montwood franklin americas and parkland would love to put the smack down on a valley team. Tell ur coach to put on his big boy pants and meet a team half way somewhere
Guess we will never know.
El Paso 6A shools only play west Texas in the first round. 2nd round they have to play DFW schools like Arlington. Midland Lee and Arlington Bowie, Arlington High are no joke.
