Re: El Paso teams NEED to play New Mexico teams

NewYear
Last realignment Weslaco East had 2238 students. That put them in 6A, clearly. Manor still didn’t win their region.
Those are skewed numbers as weslaco isd would add an extra 200+ kids to weslaco East by adding the disciplinary school to their enrollment.

Re: El Paso teams NEED to play New Mexico teams

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.

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?
Lol its funny that you say that. El paso teams would not beat the breaks off any new mex or rgv teams. If you pair the best ep team yearly vs the best rgv or nm team the ep team might win 3out of 10. The rgv gets no geographical help. The San Antonio/coastal bend and austin teams are all better than anything west texas has. Yall are clueless lol.

Sooooo…...let's join the ranks of New Mexico so we can win State Titles? Hmmmm…..yet we are the same kids with the same talent and the same coaches and the same workouts and the same administrators and the same philosophies, and the same pay AND that will make everyone happy and no more complaining!! WOW! What a thought!

No, they absolutely don't need to do that. El Paso teams can compete. They just need to do the things to be able to be more competitive. Progress has already been made, but more needs to happen especially starting at the middle school level. Competitiveness is a process. The earlier, the better. Benefits will probably go beyond football
