Coming off their open week after their heart wrenching overtime defeat at the hands of the Laredo Alexander Bulldogs, the playoff bound Eagle Pass Eagles varsity football team under the guidance of head football coach Tom Gonzalez will resume their district gridiron battles on Friday, November 9, 2018 in a key 7:30 PM District 29-6A regular season and district football game finale against their longest arch rival the Del Rio Rams at the Eagle Pass ISD Student Activity Center Cozel Foster-Veterans Memorial Stadium..

This game has also been designated as the Eagle Pass High School 2018 Homecoming Game with the coronation of the King and Queen and the Royal Court taking place during the halftime festivities. The visiting Del Rio Rams will enter this game with an overall season record of 2-3 and a district mark of 2-3. The home standing Eagle Pass Eagles will come in sporting an overall season record of 7-2 and a district mark of 3-2. The Eagle Pass Eagles-Del Rio Rams football series originated back in 1920 when Del Rio was then known as the Wildcats. Overall season records are meaningless throughout this storied rivalry series as the Eagles and Rams have always battled each other out on the gridiron as if it were for the State High School football championship.

The visiting Del Rio Rams who are a 60% run and 40% pass type offense will venture into this key matchup led by their very athletic and crafty starting quarterback Guy Creamer # 18 a threat when he runs the ball and a fairly accurate passer. Joining him in the backfield will be running back Isaac Rosalez #28 a very quick and elusive runner with good vision and an excellent receiver out of the backfield. The fullback will be Sergio Mireles #6 a very good lead blocker and a receiver out of the backfield. The Rams receiving corps will feature wingback Grady Scholz #45 a very good receiver with great hands. One of the wide receivers will be Kai Fermett #13 a very good athlete and very fast that runs very good routes and the other wide receiver will be Anthony Maldonado #17 who has great hands runs his routes very well look for him on post patterns.

The Rams offensive line will be comprised by right tackle Luis Perez #79 who is big and strong and must stay low on him, right guard Miguel Costilla #51, center Mark Alcarza #68, left guard Isaac Salazar #56 and alternating at left tackle will be Emiliano Faz #62 and Jesse Rodriguez #69.

Defensively the Rams will feature their base 3-4-2 scheme with the veteran and athletic Carlos Nandin #58 as the defensive end with Gabriel Rosas #94 as the nose guard and Kaylon Green #31 as the anchor end. The Rams quartet of solid linebackers will feature inside linebackers Luis Bagneschi #44 as the Bandit and Joey Jimenez #42 as the Pete with the outside linebackers being Oscar Sandoval #40 as the Willie and Nick Padilla #43 as the Sam. The Rams defensive secondary will be manned by Roy Talamantez #24 and Jay Gomez #21 at the corners with JD Torres #20 and Sergio Trevino #23 as the safeties.

The home standing high soaring Eagle Pass Eagles will counter with a potent offensive scheme led by their dual threat starting quarterback Richie Luna who is dangerous both with his legs and his throwing arm and will be joined in the backfield by their hardnosed running back trio of the swift and elusive freshman running back Jose Hernandez as well as Saul Peralez and J Herrera When the Eagles employ their explosive aerial game they have the luxury of having five very swift and sure handed receivers the likes of the tall speedy and elusive Rey Rey Mendoza, the clutch handed Oscar Castillon, the athletic David Lopez who always manages to get open in the secondary, young Jacob Ruiz as well as Isaac Gonzalez who each have the ability to score from anywhere on the gridiron on any given play.

The famed formidable Eagle Pass Eagles stingy, aggressive and hard hitting defensive squad featuring their fast, strong and aggressive defensive line that game in and game out apply relentless pressure comprised by standout defensive end Moises Rocha along with Manny Rodriguez, David Santos and Jorge Gonzalez will certainly look forward to the challenge of battling the Rams offensive line in the trenches. The Eagles trio of very fast, quick pursuing and bone rattling linebacker corps featuring the stellar David Kypuros one of the top linebackers in the entire Region IV along with Jacob Salinas and veteran Roger Ulloa will be more than ready to inflict their patented punishing tackles on the Rams running backs. The Eagles stingy defensive secondary unit of Nico Moyeda, Josh Monsivais, Eric Heredia and Raul Lechler have already faced and held the district’s premier wide receivers to way below their usual average. The Eagles defense will also greatly benefit from the return services of one of their safeties in Ryan Chisum #1.The Eagles secondary has registered a total of 13 interceptions this year so far. In district play the Eagles stout defense has allowed only a total of 232 yards rushing for and outstanding average of 46.4 yards per game and a total of 584 yards passing for an average of 116.8 yards per game.

Eagle Pass Sports Central would like to wish the mighty Eagle Pass Eagles the very best of luck in your game against the Del Rio Rams and invite the entire community of Eagles Pass, Texas as well as the Loyal Legion of Eagles faithful to come out to the stadium this coming Friday night and support the mighty Eagle Pass Eagles varsity football team. GO EAGLES! BEAT THE RAMS!
