The District 29-6A co-leading and playoff bound Eagle Pass Eagles varsity football team mentored by head football coach Tom Gonzalez will venture to Del Rio, Texas on Friday, November 10, 2017 to culminate their regular and district season with a key 7:30 PM matchup against their long time and oldest rival the Del Rio Rams at Walter Levermann-Rams Stadium.

At stake for the visiting Eagle Pass Eagles is at least a district co-championship if the Eagles defeat the Rams and the Southwest Dragons defeat the South San Bobcats in their matchup.  Should the South San Bobcats upset the Dragons and Eagles victory over Del Rio would give the Eagles the outright District 29-6A championship.  A Del Rio upset over the Eagles and a Southwest victory over South San would give the Southwest Dragons the outright district crown.

The visiting Eagles will venture into this matchup sporting an overall season record of 7-2 and a district co-leading mark of 5-1.  The home standing Rams will enter this game with an overall season record of 2-7 and a district mark of 2-4 but rest assure whenever these two teams meet on the gridiron records are thrown out the window. Del Rio does however lead the all-time series against the Eagle Pass Eagles 72-18 with 5 ties.

Del Rio Rams Starting Offense

QB #20 JD Torres: Athletic & crafty, he can run and pass. Expect Zone Read, Opt. & Follow.

RB #34 Ruben Berain: Very Quick and elusive RB. Good Vision and WR out of the Back field.

FB #8 Azell Dimery: Good lead blocker. Expect Blast, Follow, Axe, Double G & Power.

Snug/TE #87 Jose Rodriguez: His Alignment is critical: TE: Zone & G, Snug: GF, Power & Blast.

WB #13 Kai Fernett: Good ATHLETE & FAST. Good hands & routes.

Z #17 Anthony Maldonado: Tall & Lanky WR. Great hands & routes.

X #7 Guy Creamer: Good athlete, backup QB. Good Blocker & good hands. Hard count Fly to him.

RT #64 Dizan Rodriguez : Big & strong, must stay low. Good zone and Opt. Blocker.

RG #53 Jose Rodriguez :  Good OL, will drive, cut you or reach you. Plays to the whistle.

C #55 David Garza: Blocks down and away usually. Will cut you on certain plays.

LG #69 Jesse Barragan : Good run and pass blocker. Stays on his blocks. Will cut you.

LT #71 Jesse Rodriguez: Their LT is usually the best OL. He is very a good in Run & Pass game.

Defensively the Rams employ a basic 3-4 scheme with a quick, strong and athletic front line with the likes of hose guard Jose Mendoza # 94 and defensive ends Carlos Nandin #58 and Jesus Gonzalez #52.  The Rams also feature a solid quartet of fast and athletic iine backers in Nick Padilla #43, Tomas Placido #24, Azel Demery #8 and Manuel Arguijo #44. The Rams secondary is the strength of their defense with four very athletic and quick cover two backs with the likes of Erick Garcia #5, Corey Pollard #2, Ronald Bailey #1 and Brian Beto #19.

The quick striking and very explosive Eagle Pass Eagles offense will counter with the premier running back in District 29-6A  Dee Andre Torres who has the speed and elusiveness to escape would be tacklers and can also just plow right over you if need be.  The Eagles starting signal caller Richie Luna could very well have a huge night with his very talented, quick footed and sure handed quartet of receivers with the likes of Norby Zavala, Jose Riojas, Albert Guevara and Rey Mendoza which greatly compliments the Eagles potent running game.

The equally talented, quick pursuing, hard hitting and explosive Eagles defensive unit who refer to themselves as the “Land Sharks” with the likes of Mario Torres, Sebastian, Hernandez, Manny Rodriguez, Moi Rocha, Armando Monsivais, Roger Ulloa, Raul Lechler, Ryan Chisum, Josh Monsivais and company will be armed and ready to nullify the Rams running and passing game.


Eagle Pass Sports Central wishes the mighty Eagles the very best of luck against the Del Rio Rams  and invites the Loyal Legionof Eagles faithful as well as the entire community of Eagle Pass, Texasto make the trip to Del Rio this coming Friday night and support the Eagles. Go Eagles! Beat the Rams!
