The Eagle Pass Eagles guided by head football coach Tom Gonzalez will host the Laredo LBJ Wolves on Friday, October 5, 2018 in a 7:30 PM District 29-6A gridiron matchup at the Eagle Pass ISD Student Activity Center Cozel Foster-Veterans Memorial Stadium. The visiting Laredo LBJ Wolves will enter this contest with an overall season record of 1-4 and a district mark of 0-1 while the home standing Eagle Pass Eagles will come in with an overall season record of 4-1 and a district mark of 0-1.

The visiting Laredo LBJ Wolves mentored by head coach Alfonso Calderon will be led by quarterback Luis Segura #10 who has a good arm runs the ball well as carries out his fakes well. His passes will be mainly short to intermediate passes. When he runs the ball he tends to try to do too much and will fumble. The backup quarterback will be Rene Herrera #4 who did come in late into the game against Laredo Alexander last week and will probably see some action against the Eagles depending on how the game is going. In the backfield the Wolves will feature a pair of nearly identical style running backs with Eddie Santillan #22 and Manny Rodriguez #21. Santillan is a tough runner who reads his blocks well but is not a very durable running back. Rodriguez is nearly an identical type running back as Santillan has been injury prone this season. The TE/FB will be Dion Tucker #88 who is slow getting off the ball but will stay with his blocks.

The Wolves receiving corps will feature Rupert Landa #7 as the slot back who will be their go-to-guy who has good speed and is capable of getting behind the defense. Luis Gomez #2 will be one of their wide out receivers who the Wolves like to isolate him one on one has good hands and speed. Fernando Avila #3 is the other wide who runs good patterns and will block well on crack backs. The substitute wide receiver will be Sergio Guel #1 who is very fast and you can expect the deep ball thrown at him also plays defensive back.

The Wolves offensive line will be comprised by left tackle Brian Quilanton #76, left guard Juan Hinojosa #60, center Claudio Padilla #72, right guard Sammy Gonzalez #62 and right tackle Raul Macias #78.

Defensively the Laredo LBJ Wolves will lineup in a base 4-3 scheme with the front line being comprised by Jose Hinojosa#55 at the defensive end position, Eddie Rodriguez #44 as the anchor end with Rolando Galaviz #35 and Alfonso Davila #52 at the tackles position. The Wolves trio of linebackers will be Raul Bermea #23, Christian Ramos #42 and Mario Gonzalez #32. The Wolves secondary will feature Mark Santillan #25 and Sergio Caudillo #14 at the corners with Oziel Montoya #8 and Miguel Murillo #9 as the safeties.

The home standing Eagles will counter with their dual threat “War Eagle” offense with their patented ground and air assault with either regular starting signal caller Richie Luna or backup quarterback Allan Rodriguez ready to lead the troops into battle against the Wolves. In the backfield the Eagles will feature a trio of solid running backs the likes of Saul Peralez, Jose Hernandez and J Herrera ready to tote the pig skin to pay dirt. The Eagles offensive line will certainly need to get off the ball and maintain their blocks and dominate in the trenches.

Defensively the famed “Land Sharks” defensive unit will also have to dominate the line of scrimmage and apply relentless pressure on the Wolves predominately ground oriented attack with the likes of standout Moises Rocha, David Santos, Manny Rodriguez and Jorge Gonzalez manning the trenches. The Eagles fast pursuing and hard hitting trio of linebackers will feature stellar David Kypuros, Jacob Salinas and veteran Roger Ulloa ready to inflict their punishing tackles on the Wolves running backs. The Eagles talented secondary unit of Nico Moyeda and Raul Lechler at the corners with the speedy and talented Eric Heredia and Ryan Chisum geared to cover the Wolves receivers as well as provide run support.

Eagle Pass Sports Central invites the Loyal Legion of Eagles fans as well as the entire community of Eagle Pass, Texas to come out to the stadium this coming Friday night and support the mighty Eagle Pass Eagles. GO EAGLES! BEAT THE WOLVES!
