Coming off their impressive 21 to 0 shutout victory over Crystal City, the mighty C.C. Winn Mavericks varsity football squad under the leadership of head football coach Eric Villasenor return home on Friday, September 7, 2018 to entertain the Uvalde Coyotes in a 7:30 PM non-district gridiron home opener at the Eagle Pass ISD Student Activity Center Cozel Foster-Veterans Memorial Stadium. This contest has been designated as Parent’s night with the Mavericks varsity players paying tribute to their respective parents during pre-game festivities.

The visiting Uvalde Coyotes under the guidance of head coach R.T.Gonzales return the services of 5 offensive and 3 defensive starters from a bi-district finalist squad that culminated with an overall season record of 6-5. The predominately young Coyotes opened this season with a 42 to 14 loss to the Eagle Pass Eagles in their home opener

Offensively the Coyotes who are predominately a pass oriented offense will have sophomore Davila #2 as the starting quarterback who has a good throwing arm and is quite athletic but tends to get rattled when pressured. The Coyotes main weapon in the rushing department will be junior running back Sotero Martinez #21 who is not a breakaway type running back but will pound the ball when called to carry the pigskin and will also split out on their passing scheme. The Coyotes most targeted pass receiver will be D’Andre Carroll #81 who has great hands and runs a 4.5 40 yard dash and is their bonafide deep threat and will need to be held in check. Their other trio of receiver will include returning starter senior slot receiver Donovan Amaya #80 who primarily likes to run intermediate routes but is quick off t snap of the ball, senior wing back Juan Amaya #14 the Coyotes second most targeted receiver who is sure handed and also prefers to run intermediate pass patterns, and senior wide receiver Marcus De La Cruz # 3 who is very athletic and tall and will run mostly vertical routes.

The Coyotes offensive line will be comprised by senior left tackle Eric De La Rosa # 70 their best lineman, senior left guard Irwin Plata #64, senior center Samuel Lara #60, sophomore right guard Payten Carnes # 55 and junior right tackle Eduardo Luna #54. Matthew Avila will handle the placekicking duties for the Coyotes.

The home standing mighty C.C. Winn Mavericks’ well balanced offense mentored by offensive coordinator Heriberto Roiz will enter this contest ready to unleash the powerful running game with junior standout quarterback Ethan Johnston leading the rushing attack gaining 150 yards on 20 carries and tallied all three touchdowns against the Crystal City Javelinas last week along with fellow running backs Marc Cardenas and Fernando Zapata ready to carry the pigskin to pay dirt. When the Mavericks take to the air the Mavericks receiving corps will feature Jared Roiz, Raul Solis. Ernesto Vasquez and Marc Cardenas out of the backfield

The big men in the trenches who last week simply dominated the line of scrimmage to pave the way for the Mavericks potent running game and also provided excellent pass protection in their passing game will feature Daniel Ruiz as the starting center, Adrian Munoz and Juan Guerra at the guard positions with Cesar Valdez and veteran Jaime Rodriguez as the starting tackles for the Mavericks. Ernesto Fuentes will be entrusted with the all important placekicking responsibility.

Defensively Mavericks co-defensive coordinators Saul Salas and Rene Ramirez have the luxury of suiting up a very aggressive hard hitting and swarming unit that are well known for applying relentless pressure on their opponents that last week only allowed a phenomenal 77 total yards against the Crystal City Javelinas in the Mavericks dominating 21 to 0 victory in their season opener. The Mavericks “Fab-Four” defensive line who will apply relentless pressure all game long will feature stellar Alejandro Ontiveros and Alexis Ontiveros as the defensive tackles with Jose Hinojosa and Ricardo Morales as the defensive ends. The Mavericks’ quick pursuing and bone shattering linebackers with feature Patricio Hernandez who led the team with 10 solo tackles last week and Alex Garcia with standout Miguel De Los Santos almost ready to return to the gridiron as he is recovering from an off-season injury. The Mavericks quintet of swift defensive backs that will surely be severely tested by the Coyotes passing attack will once again need to step up their game in covering the opponent’s receivers. Last week the Mavericks “Ministers of Air” defensive secondary unit did not allow a single pass completion in the entire game. Patrolling the secondary for the Mavericks are German Velasquez and Gilberto Vasquez at the corners with veteran hard hitting Domingo Duran as the strong safety, Azael Rodriguez as the weak safety and Hector Nunez as the strong safety.

Eagle Pass Sports Central wishes the mighty C.C. Winn Mavericks the very best of luck against the Uvalde Coyotes and invites the famed Mavericks Nation as well as the entire community of Eagle Pass, Texas to come out to the Eagle Pass ISD Student Activity Center Cozel Foster-Veterans Memorial Stadium this coming Friday night and support the mighty C.C. Winn Mavericks’ varsity football team. Stay tuned to Eagle Pass Sports Central for your most informative and complete game report as well as the only official team and individual game stats.
