@ Bill4par...the young man you're speaking of, in my opinion and from watching almost all of EC's games, has matured quite well. I've been told that he grades-out in the mid-high 80's and has done so other than his first varsity game against Cibolo Steele. Believe it or not, he's never been the lowest graded o-lineman for E.C.. He's still making mistakes, but not very many mental ones (the one's that cannot be coached out). Please know that I'm hearing this second hand from a friend of mine who knows this kids Dad.

To me, if he keeps on growing and improving, he'll be a top D1 line prospect in a couple of years.

I believe his name is Andrew Tercek (#77) and he plays left o-tackle.

You'll also be glad to hear that he's a strait-A honors student as well. My buddy introduced me to this kids Dad a couple of days ago...if come close to what his Dad looks like, he's going to be a monster. His Dad, by the way, has to be at least 6'5" and weigh 300 lbs..

East Central was robbed of a first-half touchdown by a delayed (after their runner reached the end-zone for the TD) and obviously "home-cooking" holding penalty from the home-side line judge that in truth was a text-book "pancake" block by their left-tackle. The score of the game should have been 29-24 with the "W" for East Central.:Censor:

I agree, it should be a good game. Interestingly enough, Massey's ratings predict a 28 to 28 tie for the game.

I'm going to have to pull for East Central because of their homefield advantage and they seem to be clicking on all cylinders - especially with #9 Chris Armstrong, their TB, coming on strong with over 500 yards for the season already. Not to mention, their O and D lines are very capable of controlling line-of-scrimmage at will.

Good game, Victoria made less mistakes and executed better than EC did. I think some of the EC players may have been taking VE for granted and not thinking they would have played as strong as they did. EC made a lot more mistakes and wasn't able to execute on Offense as they needed.

This was a wake-up call for EC and a good loss (if there ever is a "good" loss) due to the fact EC cannot take anyone in their district lightly - even Highlands and South San.

EC, IMO, has the potential to win 28-5A outright and go undefeated for the rest of the year - however, they must take each week and game one at a time and never underestimate their opponents. If EC can execute and use all of their weapons accordingly, they have the realistic potential of going far into the play-offs.

Friday, October 8:
-- East Central - 47
-- C.C. King - 0

It was 28 - 0 at the half. It almost troubles me to say, since I did play for and graduate from King back in 86', KHS never really got their offense going and their defense was not there.:D

EC is now 4-2 for the season and 1-0 in district and will be playing Southwest at home this coming Thursday night...it will be televised!

Very close game as EC had to come from behind as their defense stepped it up in the 4th to pull out the win.

It will be the closest game EC will play this year...even more so than the SW game. Carroll plays at home very well, that being said, EC has been improving week after week (even through season ending injuries to some of their starters) and if they can just execute and play their game...they will win. If, and only if, they can play on all cylinders, I think they could actually blow-out Carroll - but the converse of that is also true.

If you go to the Massey Ratings web-site: http://www.highschoolsports.net/massey/ratings/East-Central-High-School-San-Antonio-TX/Football/Varsity/Boys/2010/ you'll see that they have EC winning 27 - 18. However, I don't look at the predicted scoring as much as the predicted winner of the contest. That being said, as the season goes on, Massey becomes more accurate in forecasting the winners.

HPUalumni
10-24-2010, 09:16 PM
Friday, October 22:
-- East Central - 35
-- South San - 7

Unfortunately, the score really doesn't tell the story of how EC dominated South San. EC started putting in their second teamers during the beginning of the 3rd quarter. The TD made by South San was due to a broken play that should have been a QB sack.

E.C. is now 6-2 for the year and 3-0 in district play and will be playing Corpus Christi Carroll next Friday, October 29 for the District 28-5A championship.

Yes, I agree...I'm looking forward to how high we go in the Massey Ratings this coming week.

If you take back the 3 turn-overs we had, Carroll would have not scored AT All! Their scores came we EC turned over the ball within their own 20-yrd line.

On another note, you need to read the EN online football sports articles and start commenting on them like in here. Here's a couple I know you would want to read and comment on as I have already - seems to be a couple of knuckle-heads doubting what EC has already done this year and not giving them anychances of winning the Warren game:

I know for a fact there are several parents upset about their little "Johnny's" not making Varsity this year. Add that to the fact there are several other parents that think they're Bear Bryant and still criticize the coaches decisions and play calling. Bottom line - there are some EC parents that need to get a clue and grip on reality and know that the coaches are doing the best they can with what they have. I have told one of these parents two things: #1 they are winning - it's not about your son or the # of catches/throws he gets, but about the team - and they're winning. #2 they don't know everything that is going on during meetings, practices and film study - thus, the coaches play and do things for certain reasons we may not have any clue about. I also tell them..."...hey go get certified to teach and start coaching - you obviously know more about the game than the coaching staff." I've been blessed to have played the great game of football in HS and in College - and know enough about the sport to know that no matter what I see during practice, the games or what my son tells me about the team, there are multiple issues/reasons that I will never know about as to "why" the coaches do what they do. I think as fans/supporters of the team we should stick by the coaching staff (losing or winning) and give them the benefit of the doubt. Now, that doesn't mean we should not be realistic about our team's chances of winning state - which for EC this year, would be a long-shot...but we can still cheer and support them one game at a time...and keep imature adults attitudes in check as much as possible.

Sorry to see a good year ended so abruptly. I feel like this happens every year though. We have high expectations for our team, then they make the playoffs and lose in the first round. In the last 15 years we have made it past the first round 2 times (1997,2007). What is keeping us from making a decent run in the playoffs?

E.C. Dominated Floresville in all phases of play last night during their first scrimmage of the 2011 season. I know Floresville is not considered a 4A power-house, but literally E.C.'s offense could score within almost every 3 plays and their deffense kept Floresville to negative yardage - take away a "hail-Mary" TD pass play.

I can only hope the quarterback situation is working itself out. Stevens defense will be eyed the run a lot.

Candidly, I wish Coach Walker would pick just one QB. Doing so would solidify the continuity that sometimes is enemic with the offense. I know all 3 QB's and they are good kids and each brings their own unique style and abilities to the team...hard call either way.

I agree that this will be a "battle of the trenches"...however, unlike a couple of years ago, when EC's O-line was somewhat of a "???"- this year's line has the size and experience across the front...they have only 1 o-lineman that does not have more than 2 years (starting) experience. EC probably averages about 265-275 across their line...that's including one of their lineman weighing around the 225 lb. range - the others are well above 265. Plus they got height along with weight...LT is 6'3" (started and played every game since his Freshman year - D1 prospect since his Sophomore year), LG is 6'2", C is 6'1", RG is 5"10, RT is 6'3".

Should be a good game...if EC's defense can prevent Steven's from scoring like they've done with the rest of their District, EC could truly blow-out Steven's!!!

Should have great weather for the game! What stinks is the fact that NSISD does not allow inflatable "run-through" tunnels at their games...really sucks! Don't want to mentally abuse the other team or make them feell "vulnerable"...BS!!!

EC should 'breeze' through the first two non-district games and then face a very good upcoming 4a team in Brennan. I watched them play Clemens last year and was very impressed with the way they play ball. If they can start throwing the ball better this year, they will be a very good team! I think EC handles Brennan with relative ease though. Then comes Judson and NB. Both games should be very competitive but if EC has what I think they are going to have, the should beat both these teams going into district at 5-0.

The only thing bad about the schedule is the fact that EC/STeele is not the last game of the year for the district title! I am glad to see that TNL is going to carry the ball game and even more glad that it will be in the friendly confines of Lehnhoff Stadium. It should be a jam packed house for the district title that night even with it televised. This game should be very, VERY good!!!

Thanks for sharing HPU. I would probably expect the same thing against Floresville.

I expected you guys would do that against Seguin. I think EC's offense will be very, VERY good this year with what they have coming back. I expect the defense to be pretty damn salty to. I fully expect you guys to be a heck of a team this year. I think EC is finally getting it right. What I mean is that the Hornets have never lacked in the 'athlete department', just maybe in the discipline dept and I think Walker has addressed that and gotten the kids to play much more as a team.

Very much looking forward to the game on Oct 25 this year!

Well, EC made John Jay look a lot better than they really are...the game should have been a blow-out by half-time. That's OK, a win is indeed a win, right?

We got Marshal this coming Friday...should be a step-up in competition, but a win never-the-less!

Exactly right........a win is a win. Now's the time to get some of the kinks worked out and to look at different kids and plays & formations.
I saw the stats and that EC dominated them in total yardage. I aslo saw each team lost 4 fumbles each as well as the Hornets having 10 penalties for 100 yards. Definately gotta get that cleaned up for sure before a tough opponent comes calling in the next couple of weeks.

Marshall might be a bit better then JJ was, but not much. EC will win a route IMO. I look for a much cleaner game out of the Hornets this week.

Yeah, the only thing that really got me was the penalties...we gave-up too many Personal Foul calls for late, stupid hits on defense. Albeit a couple of those fouls were very questionable at best.

I just don 't think playing Marshall will get you better, we will see.

Normally EC would be playing Seguin or Victoria East for their second game of the season...so, I thing every game a team can get better - albeit not soo much if they are playing Sisters of Mercy JV team vs. Judson, Steele, SV, etc...

E.C. 50 - S.A. Marshall 0 -- EC did much better this week...still have several mental mistakes to correct, but never-the-less played much better than they did against S.A. Jay last week. Defense has improved remarkedly well and offense is starting to run on more cylinders for a longer time. E.C. could have easily put up 75 or more points, but started throttling down at the begining of Q2.

Have Brennan next week which will be a lot more challenging than these past two weeks. Brennan is very good and will be EC's first litmus test as to how good or bad we are.

Damn solid outing last night for the Hornets! Sounds like the team is coming together well. Congrats.

Yes, Brennan should be a heck of a good measuring stick. They were a solid 4a team last year and should be better this year with the returning players they have. Should be a good ball game and if EC hands it to them..........it'll definately serve notice to SA.

OUCH!!! E.C. 0 - Brennan 24


Well, on the bright-side EC's Defense did a pretty good job...considering they were on the field most of the time. Defense stopped Brennan mutliple times, but the "O" couldn't get started and take advantage of it.

Hat's off to Brennan as they came to play and play hard...they are very deserving of the #1 4A ranking in the Area.


E.C. will learn from their mistakes and will be prepared for next week's game at Judson...if they don't, it's going to be a long night!

Probably not, Judson D is not good this point, so you have a game that will end up 47-45, that type of game.

Wow...great game against Judson - a defensive game to say the least: EC (18) - Judson (28). The score really isn't indicative of how close the game really was. If it wasn't for a couple of long-play miscues on EC's part...the score could have easily been the other way around.

EC missed Chris Armstrong, but showed-up to play...however, Judson was able to capitalized on a couple of long plays that set them up for short TD's. Hats off to Judson for a great game!

Well it is said a win is a win...well after experiencing the EC vs. NB game this past Friday, I felt like I had a double Vasectomy without any form of pain-killer or anesthesia!!! It was quite literally the worst officiated game I've ever witness and and the score is not indicative of how much better EC played vs. NB. I will give it to NB as they didn't give up, but the score should have been at least 42 to maybe 14 at best. EC had 3 TD's called back due to BS calls on the Refs...it was like watching the game from "Remember the Titans" when all the Refs were on the "take".

Sounds like a painful night! I hate those games when the refs are blatant. It's one thing to make a mistake (we all do) but quite another to repeatedly make more mistakes. If you aren't qualified to ref..............THEN DON'T REF!!! It is tough on these guys who are doing a difficult job to say the least............and blown calls happen.....but..............

Tomorrow night E.C. plays C.C. Carroll in both teams 28-5A debut!!! E.C. should win easily as Carroll is having a lot of issues this year and are 0-5 thus far. Hate the trip - hate it even more that it's on a school/work night!!! Grrrrrrrr

EC is on a roll, beating CC Carroll and Southwest dominately over the past two weeks. Now, the HUGE test as EC plays Steele! If EC can keep this game close, they'll have a fighting chance - if not, It'll be a very long night for the Hornets!

I agree with you HPU. EC will have to come out FAST!!!! & take advantage of the rust and atrophy accumulated by the Knights. I hope we will work hard this week in practice to make sure there is very little of that after the the last month of games. The first 2 or 3 series will dictate how this game will go. Although both teams for all intents and purposes have locked up their playoff positions, it is for District, so there is something to play for and get after it. Good luck to the Hornets and safe play for your Son and both teams.

I agree HPUa! I think you guys have to come out fast. If you do it'll be a good game. If not and EC lets Steele jump on them it'll be a long night.

It will all come down to just how hot you guys come out and how much 'rust' we have from the last month. Our starters have not had much work at all since the WL game.

Your O looked very good Thursday night against SW. I thought your O-line looked very good as did the RBs. The D played good as well. I think it is key for EC to be able to establish your run game because I feel as though if Steele forces you to air it out you will be in big trouble.

Thanks SC!!! I'm so hoping EC can finally have their "A" game on both sides of the ball - they'll need that and maybe some pixie-dust to beat Steele! Wish nothing but a good hard-faught (non-blowout) game that when all is said and done, both teams know that they played the best this year so far!!!

LOL..."rust"! 99% of the 5A teams will gladly take Steele's rust "play" everygame! I'm very concerned with Steele's "rusty" game and scared with their "non-rusty" game!

EC's air attack has come a long way since we've played Jay during the first game of the season. Both Jone's brothers have settled down and our receivers are liking the results of what happens when they can catch-a-pass.

For EC like any other team, it boils down to 2 things: Consistancy and Playing to Potential.

Truly hoping it will be a nail-biter this coming Thursday and pray that nobody gets hurt on either side.

Indeed. Most important thing is both teams lose NOBODY else!

And I do think this game could be a nail biter if we are not 100% ready to play. EC is going to come at us, of that I've not doubt.

Well, this is my last post to this and other threads as my Son played his last H.S. football game this afternoon. E.C. never could get it together on offense and because of that we lost bad to Madison. Congrats to Madison and good luck in the playoffs. Good news is, my Son will be starting a new college football career with the Boise State Broncos next Fall.
