The playoff bound C.C. Winn Mavericks varsity football under the leadership of head football coach Eric Villasenor will venture to the famed Honey Bowl in Uvalde, Texas this coming Friday, November 10, 2017 to tangle with the always tough Uvalde Coyotes in a 7:30 PM regular season and district gridiron finale.  The home standing Uvalde Coyotes will enter this matchup sporting an overall season record of 5-4 and a district mark of 2-2 while the visiting Mavericks will come in with an overall season record of 3-6 and a district mark of 2-2.  The winner of the C.C. Winn-Uvalde game will finish in third place in the district race and the loser will be the fourth place playoff representative.

The Uvalde Coyotes feature a prolific aerial show with quarterback Michael Mata #12 as the triggerman.  Mata has completed 179 passes out of 333 attempts for 2944 yards and has thrown 26 touchdown passes.  Mata has a very strong arm always looking to throw the deep pass.  Not a mobile quarterback does prefer to stay in the pocket.  Joining Mata in the backfield are a trio of running backs that take turns carrying the mail in their running scheme.  David Rodriguez #22 has 67 carries for274 yards rushing, Sotero Martinez #21 who has 47carries for 214 yards and Domingo Davila #2 who has 40 carries for 193 yards.  The Coyotes famed aerial attack is entrusted into the hands of a quartet of very solid and sure handed receivers the likes of D’Andre Carroll #81 their tallest, fastest and most explosive receiver who has 22 receptions of 815 yards and 9 TD’s, Josh Sandoval #11 with 59 receptions for 730 yards, Humberto De Leon #7 with 29 receptions for 496 yards and Donovan Amaya #80 who has 23 receptions for 361 yards.

The Coyotes offensive line that provides the pass protection in their potent passing game will be manned by tight end Alberto Garza #83, left tackle Estevan Encinia #62, left guard Irwin Plata #64, center Zebediah Holley #66, right guard Matthew Williams #55 and right tackle Eric DeLa Rosa #70

The visiting C.C. Winn Mavericks will counter with a balanced offensive scheme with the ground assault duties being handled by quarterback Ethan Johnston and running backs Fernando Zapata and Luis Rodriguez utilizing the blocking of offensive linemen Sebastian Lopez, Miguel Nino, Jaime Rodriguez, Erik Del Bosque and Juan Hernandez.  The Mavericks air attack chores will be handled by receivers, Luis Olvera, Jose Blanco, Isaac Villarreal, Jared Roiz, Justis Roiz and Raul Soliz.

The Mavericks patented aggressive, quick pursuing and hard hitting defense will surely be tested heavily by the Coyotes this coming Friday night but you can rest assure that the defensive frontline of Ricardo Morales, Alexis Morales, Alejandro Ontiveros, and Isaias Gonzalez will have to dominate the line of scrimmage and apply pressure of the Coyotes starting signal caller.  The Mavericks dynamic line backing duo of Ernesto Villasenor and Miguel De Los Santos should have quite a game against the Coyotes.  The Mavericks secondary unit of Domingo Duran, Azael Rodriguez, Xavier Cerezo and Juan . Garcia will be tested quite heavily all game long and will need to force a few turnovers in this game.


Eagle Pass Sports Central wishes the mighty 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 make the trip to Uvalde, Texas this coming Friday night and support the mighty C.C. Winn Mavericks. GO MAVERICKS! BEAT THE COYOTES!
