Re: Student-Athletes with Corona Virus

Oh my god. Corona has about a 99% survival rate. People will die, most people will recover, some will never know they have already had it. We need to move on. We can’t live in fear. People die from various diseases everyday. I’m not believing the numbers that are being put out. Someone can be dying from something unrelated to Covid but because they happen to test positive now they are listed as a COVID death. Liberals have an agenda to destroy the country and rebuild it as a socialist unfree racist take your gun no religion no moral place that no one will be happy in. They are trying to take way what makes America great. Football and sports in general have a lot to do with our happiness. Let the kids play. Let us cheer them on. Nothing is ever perfect but we can’t keep living like this. Wear masks and social distance and we should be fine.

What does Cathedral’s positive case mean for the rest of the football programs in the city? Did they mess it up for everyone?
You should also ask What does Socorro's positive case mean for the rest of the football programs in the city?
Like I said FAKE NEWS!!!!!


Contrary to what KVIA has posted. Socorro ISD has not cancelled any workouts and there had not been any reports from any SISD coaches today.

Check the SISD web site. It is canceled at SHS.

Because let\\\'s get back to normal. Stop being one if the sheep this virus has a low mortality rate and the people that are in jeopardy if being negatively affected by this should stay home. 90% plus people heal on their own with no medical attention. The ones that need medical help have other issues that complicates things. So stop with the hysteria and let\\\'s play.
“Get back to normal”. . The normal is no longer the normal. We ain’t in 2002 no more Dorothy!!, it’s irresponsible to have that mentality and act like there isn’t something going on that affect people’s health for something as foolish as HS football in EP. Nothing a 5’10 D-end gonna prove his senior year that’s gonna get him an offer . Most D1 kids are spotted long before they’re junior season and the others will get the walk-oon fake ceremonies to WNM or some other D4 school. Cmon
Scared little sheep. This pathogen is mild for anyone without a severe underlying condition. 95% don't even need medical attention
Very simplistically view of a complex problem. Yes young healthy teenagers with no underlying conditions will not have complications but they are the perfect carriers of the virus. I have seen many posts of local football programs posting/flexing their great turnouts “105 strong” “”74 strong “ “86 strong” . . That’s 105 kids who exponentially increase the number of contagious increases when they go home to family were the older, underlined conditioned people do exist. But yeah keep looking at things with your simplistic and basic views and perspective. I hope people in charge are a bit better informed than Mr. ...........

Stop with your fearmongering by telling kids that don't have it have it and if they don't have it will get it and if they don't get it and don't have it might give what they don't have to someone else and if they don't give what they don't have might get it from someone else who does not have it.

Stop that crap and stop watching the same news station and reading the same source. Dig deeper and get the real story behind all of this. Learn the truth.

Re: Student-Athletes with Corona Virus

That is true and funny truth. It's like me saying I used to be negative like 15 years ago but became positive however I recommend to stay 6ft away from because I have an underlying condition of negativity within me. Point is that everyone has an underlying condition of something or another.

So all the health experts and CDC are wrong with what they say and you are right??. The overwhelmed capacity of hospitals with Covid patients is not true. Brother you need to stop living in 1999 and get informed. You sound like the lady on tv yesterday who doesn’t want to wear a mask for the same reason she doesn’t wear underwear SO SHE CAN BREATHE!!!. . no mames!!

There is no testing of athletes going on so no positive results. Page out of Trumps book. Should of been a requirement before stepping on the premises like in any other program in the country.

Re: Student-Athletes with Corona Virus

At this time in the state of Texas more schools are shutting down than are working, The Governor has
admitted maybe he made a mistake by allowing Bars to open as the numbers among 20 to 30 year age bracket
have skyrocketed. The governor and other government officials were and are under great pressure in order to
open the economy hence the opening of school workouts. So if anyone wants to make or rather play the blame game than
blame overzealous football coaches and parents who are panicking because they fear the season might not come to
pass. If new cases are well over a hundred a day how can anyone expect football to move into a full contact capacity.

Re: Student-Athletes with Corona Virus

Please no politics. So sick of politics. Let's talk football. Go to Facebook to talk politics. Thus a football site. Good luck to all teams and let's have another great football season.

Re: Student-Athletes with Corona Virus

Notice the teams having Covid issues aren't those with 100 kids, its the ones with 30 that were having problems even fielding a program

Re: Student-Athletes with Corona Virus

Into one week and going into week two of El Paso HS Football games and close to 10 games have already been either postponed or cancelled.

Re: Student-Athletes with Corona Virus

Canutillo and El Dorado game has been cancelled

Re: Student-Athletes with Corona Virus

Yes the Coronavirus is still out and about.

NO the student athletes aren't at a "great risk" during football games / practices.
Coaches have protocols that are followed before student athletes are allowed to practice or participate in games. It's when the student athletes are selfish and don't answer their pre screening questions truthfully that problems arise. There is no DEFINED way to find coronavirus in a person until they actually test. Until then, the pre screening and temperature checks are the best defense to keep possible cases away from teams across the city.

When programs are shut down for 14 days due to a positive case, are student athletes REALLY staying home and quarantining? More than likely no. Are parents of these student athletes doing their part to ensure e season by social distancing, wearing masks, and avoiding crowded places? More than likely no.

The virus has put a weird spin on 2020, and I hope that student athletes and their families will take this seriously in order for all involved to have a season and finish it. Will there be more positive tests? More than likely. However, coaches and their programs have to rework parts of practice in order to keep kids at a safe distance for each other according to approved guidelines.

Also, I don't see the city coming in and announcing a shut down of High School sports. If they did, then we better see all the kids and adults out of the city parks as well. I believe this past weekend there was a HUGE softball tournament in town APPROVED and RUN by the city. I don't see much online about that event and how that could possibly lead to a spread?!
