The mighty C.C. Winn Mavericks varsity football team under the direction of head football coach Eric Villasenor coming off a 21 to 0 victory over the Pearsall Mavericks last Friday night will now open the respective quest for the District 14-5A Division I title this coming Friday, September 28, 2018 when they entertain the perennially tough Laredo Martin Tigers in a 7:30 PM district opening gridiron encounter at the Eagle Pass ISD Student Activity Center Cozel Foster-Veterans Memorial Stadium.

This game, as usual, is expected to be jammed packed on the home side with the famed Mavericks Nation in attendance ready to support their beloved C.C. Winn Mavericks varsity football team. The Laredo Martin Tigers will enter this contest sporting an overall season record of 2-2 while the home standing Mavericks will venture into this match sporting an overall season record of 3-1.

The visiting Laredo Martin Tigers mentored by head football coach David Charles are a predominately ground oriented offense who will be spearheaded by their multi talented quarterback Matthew Duron #24 a three year starter who is a bonafide threat running with plenty of speed by far their biggest threat with the ball and does like to throw the long ball in their passing scheme. Joining him in the backfield will be fullback Octavio Alcorta #30 and a pair of tailbacks the likes of Daniel Martinez #5 and Jose Castaneda #22. The Tigers receiving corps will feature Matt Carreon #10 and Jorge Castaneda #11 their most targeted and most explosive receiver.

The Laredo Martin Tigers offensive line will be comprised by tackle over Brian Cervantes #51, right tackle Juan Valadez #62, right guard Jesus Martinez #70, center Justin Trevino #75, left guard Javier Amador #64 and Left tackle Marcus Zavala #66.

The home standing C.C. Winn Mavericks will counter with one of the stingiest defensive units in the entire Region IV Class 5A. The famed Mavericks aggressive, quick pursuing and hard hitting defense mentored by co-head defensive coordinators Saul Salas and Rene Ramirez have only allowed 298 yards total rushing for an average of 74.5 yards rushing per game and 332 total yards passing or an average of 83yards passing per game. The Mavericks “Fab Four” defensive linemen featuring Alexis Ontiveros, standout Ricardo Morales, Alejandro Ontiveros and Jose Hinojosa game in and game out can handle their own in the trenches against any and all opposing offensive front line. The Mavericks dynamic duo of linebackers the likes of Patricio Hernandez and Alex Chris Garcia are the team’s leading tacklers this season inflicting some bone shattering tackles upon the opponent’s ball carriers with their quick pursuit. The Mavericks solid quintet secondary unit of Azael Rodriguez, German Velasquez, Hector Nunez, Domingo Duran and Gilberto Vasquez can play the pass with the top receivers in the district and also provide excellent run support swarming to the ball carrier and dish out some hard tackles on them.

The Mavericks predominately ground oriented offense tutored by offensive coordinator Heriberto Roiz will feature a solid running game with quarterback Ethan Johnston the team’s leading rusher this season leading the ground attack along with a pair of very capable running backs the likes of Marc Castaneda and Fernando Zapata who utilize the blocking of their massive offensive line who pave the way for their running scheme. The Mavericks aerial attack is entrusted into the feet and hands of a quartet of sure handed receiving corps featuring Jared Roiz, Ernesto Vasquez, Jose Blanco and Raul Solis.

Eagle Pass Sports Central invites the entire famed Mavericks Nation as well as the entire community of Eagle, Pass, Texas to come out to the stadium this coming Friday night and support the mighty C.C. Winn Mavericks in their quest for the 2018 District 14-5A Division I title.. GO MAVERICKS! BEAT THE TIGERS!
