Adios Weatherford, Paschal, Richland, Haltom, North Crowley, and Burleson. Hello old friends in Midland and Odessa!

You have to admit it was fun playing a host of new teams for the past couple of years.

I am ready for the road trips out west. The smell of black gold while driving into hostile territory.

Now back to the bell. Where is it? Has she been taken care of? Cleaned and polished on a weekly basis?

Unfortunately the bell was retired. Since Permian's name was on it more than any other (by a large margin), it rests at 1800 E. 42nd St. in Odessa. Viewing hours are Mon-Fri 8:45am to 3:50pm.

It may have been fun for the football team, but basketball didn't enjoy it one bit!;)

I don't understand why they're so upset, they would have been more than competitive in either 5A district last year. They'll get over it. buncha whiny babies;)

Got plenty coming back. Your JV beat ours 21-20 after Cooper scored with less than a minute and went for 2 and missed.

Keep patting yourselves on the back. You can be sure that our kids and our coaching staff are ecstatic about being back in the old district.

And for what it is worth, ask Odessa High how they enjoyed scrimmaging us the last 2 years. Cooper got after them real good this year.

Seriously? I thought it was 40-0 or something like that. Educate me with facts.

btw... How many 5A teams has cooper actually beaten in the past 3 years or so? I'm sorry, can't hear you, how many?

and another btw... 2 years in 4A and didn't do too well, huh. I understand your frustration. You guys should have been playing for the title both years. Didn't even get out of the region. Won a district, that's about it.

Okay, ticked off enough now? Save your attitude for the season. Right now isn't the time.

I tried to educate you with the facts. It was 21-20. You were wrong. I had a son on the team.

Never ran your program down, or called you out. You guys did a great job this year. Just tried to point out your point regarding the JV demolishing us was not factual, and that Cooper fans and players are excited about the new realignment. Quite frankly, i don't read anything in the paper that says different.

My statement regarding OHS was to point out that we felt we had a good team this year. They wound up winning that district out west. Just stating we matched up, as i know you would guys would have as well.

i am in hopes the two of us might play for a district championship. that sir, would be good for Abilene. In any event, it is a great district, and will be tough every week.

the 5A teams we played the last 2 years (including you) have a combined 61-13. We did not get to play Paschall, Haltom or any of those guys. Garland and AHS won their respective districts the last 2 years, and you guys won a state championship. Well done sir, and we felt we held our own for the most part both years.

We played 3 rounds deep the last two years. You guys were one and done in 2008, and won it all this year. Great team this year, and quite frankly i thought the Cooper Ahs game this year was great. Just like everyone else, we could not stop the Sims. Two great players.

Try a little humility. You guys are real good, and crowing about it kind of lessens the impact.

I love Abilene, and I think we have two really good football teams.

Take that for what it is worth.

Don't make excuses for all the losses to 5A teams the past 3 or so years. Cooper wasn't good enough to beat them, AH was. That's the difference. Yep, one and out in 08. That's the way the ole ball bounces and the team bounced all the way back to a state title.

Don't underestimate the teams in our old district for the past two years.

To us old timers who played in the day when only a district champ made the playoffs, three rounds is the equivalent of winning bi-district back in the day.

Cooper fielded one of their best teams in years this past year and still could not get past round three, in 4A mind you. :eek:

Cooper and AH won't be playing for the district championship this year. Cooper may back into the 4th slot by winning only one district game as they did back in 2007.

Just a shame Cooper didn't take advantage of the time they had in 4A to put themselves on the map. Such a shame.

Plenty of humility from AH fans except when a lone cooper fan such as yourself crawls out from under a rock and spouts off his animosity towards the AH program.

Cooper gave AHS their stiffest game clear up until the Cedar Hill game, or that's how it seemed to me following stuff from afar. I wouldn't count the Coogs out. I predict the Coogs to make the playoffs, possibly take third or maybe even second in district this year. I don't see the Midland schools challenging, but I do see OHS and Permian being good.

I agree....come PO time AHS was firing on all cylinders and Cooper was pretty sporadic. AHS would have blown Cooper out had they played later in the season.

War Eagle
02-03-2010, 02:47 PM
I am not one to throw fuel on the fire...okay maybe when it is a Cougar burning, but I felt Abilene High was still feeling it's self out in the 1st half of the Cooper game.

When the coaches let the defense play in the second half by calling some man to man and a few blitzes the game clearly shifted to the better team.

IMO Abilene High's defensive coaching staff kept Cooper in that game with the bend don't break defense (drop 9, rush 2) that they have played for years against pass happy teams. In other words they gave Cooper too much credit.

Was Cooper good, yeah they were okay. They would have finished 2nd in Abilene's district IF they could have beaten NRH and they would have finished 3rd or 4th in District 2-5A behind OHS, Permian, IF they could have beaten Amarillo and Lee.

I think they should finish 3rd to 4th this season but I am not real sure what they have coming back to fill the QB, RB, and WRs that left.

Yeah I went to that game. Ahs jv black did win by that margin. I think jv gold game was a blow out.

Whenever ahs and chs play against each other they tend to play very hard. No one wants to lose to the other. When teams focus on not losing they end up doing that very thing. What was great about this years team was that they played everyone like they were a threat. I hope we continue to play like next year and not get complacent.

No offense to the Elk faithful but that was the worst scenario I've ever seen for getting into a stadium. It took us an hour to get from I-35 into a parking spot on the soccer field. I don't think they anticipated that Abilene would fill up the East side with only 1 way to get onto the grounds.

The state champion Abilene High Eagles may host a game against Plant High School from Tampa in September, according to head coach Steve Warren.

The game would likely be televised on one of the ESPN networks, according to the Tampa Tribune.

While the details have not been finalized, preliminary plans are in place for the game to be played at Shotwell Stadium on Sept. 16.

There is a tentative agreement with Plant, but the plans aren't etched in stone because game contracts can't be signed in Texas until Feb. 22, Warren said.

Plant High still has to work out its schedule for next season, as it was already set to play a different school that week, and getting school board approval to bring the team to Texas.

In the RivalsHigh 100, Abilene High (15-0) was ranked No. 5 and Plant (13-1) was ranked No. 17.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but there were a lot of folks that had doubt in the Eagles going into the Playoffs this past year. That was due to the previous year round one game. People need to get rid of their doubt. With the returning starters and kids coming up, the Eagles are going to leading from the front in the great state of Texas.

I can't disagree with that. Abilene is definitely the class of the LSWC and are among the elite in the state. They have a great chance to make it back to state again next year. Schedule looks tough though but if they go undefeated it just shows how good they are.

Kid is a flat out beast and with a college weight training program he will be a ridiculous asset. Kid is finally healthy and ready to go. I dont think anybody is ready for him. AHS hasn't boasted this fast of receiving threat since Kevin Barnes. Darius will catch everything thrown his way and leave folks in the dust. He's a very humble and kind young man as well.

Understatement of the year. That soft district didn't hurt us last year though did it? Any real fan of HS football in Texas should be glad the old traditional rivalries of the LSWC are back after a 2 year hiatus. I see AHS having a much tougher road this year due to the schedule but I think we will run the table in district.

I foresee the Coogs making the POs this year. That is as much a function of the mediocrity in the district (outside of AHS) as it is Cooper's talent. You guys do have some studs returning though. Until Cooper learns to play D, your PO runs will be short IMHO. And...... not to let you down, I will be pulling for whoever you play to kick your teeth in. Nothing personal- just have a hard time pulling for you guys. :D

It will be in an interesting season for Cooper. Haven't beaten a 5A school in a while though once again, one district win may be enough to capture the 4th spot. Dropped down to 4A, didn't really make a dent as they never got past the third round which is equivolent to winning bi-district back in the old 64 team bracket days. Another season of listening to all the whining (not you guys, people around town) about how unfair zoning, etc. is, as if that would have made a difference. Coaching makes the difference and AH clearly has the advantage.

Good luck this season.

Frankly despite what others may think, I feel AH has THE toughest schedule of anyone out there. Big name programs both in and out of state, neutral sites, a national audience, etc. That's a lot to put on these young men.

Just curious. Has SLC, Trinity, LT, Katy, etc. ever played three out of state teams during the same season? Everyone seems to think that Plant is the only one of the three that will give us any sort of challenge. Regardless, all three teams are powerhouses in their respective states and if AH does roll past any one of them, the victory shouldn't be undervauled only because it was "expected."

Cooper played us close in the first half. They were no match for our speed in the 2nd and their final score with seconds left made the score look closer that it was. 4th quarter defensive lapses made the Lee and Klein games a little too close for comfort. :eek:

Understatement of the year. That soft district didn't hurt us last year though did it? Any real fan of HS football in Texas should be glad the old traditional rivalries of the LSWC are back after a 2 year hiatus. I see AHS having a much tougher road this year due to the schedule but I think we will run the table in district.

I foresee the Coogs making the POs this year. That is as much a function of the mediocrity in the district (outside of AHS) as it is Cooper's talent. You guys do have some studs returning though. Until Cooper learns to play D, your PO runs will be short IMHO. And...... not to let you down, I will be pulling for whoever you play to kick your teeth in. Nothing personal- just have a hard time pulling for you guys. :D

Agree with all of it except.... I can't root against the alma mater...

See that's the bad thing about winning it all and predicited to come back strong the following year(s). That target is huge and teams play to their max potential against that opponent and that's when the upsets have a good chance of happening.

I think at best 5-1, I don't see Midland beating the Sandies. 3-3 is very possible with the two Odessa schools playing tough opponents.

I root for all LSWC teams during non-district (yes, even for the Coogs). There's a certain pride that comes with playing in this district if you're aware of its history.

I remember after the Permian game in '07, I kind of lost it emotionally. I started yelling at the Permian boys to, "go beat the living &*~+! out of Southlake!" and, "You guys go win D1, we'll go win D2!"

Oh, the irony of that first one but a few weeks later. :D

Midland vs. EP Del Valle
Midlane Lee vs. EP Coronado
Odessa vs. Lubbock Monterrey
Permian vs. Bethel, Wa

I'm gonna go out on a limb this week and predict the LSWC sweep. Cooper vs. Westlake should be a great game, but I think Cooper pulls this one out in a shoot out. Abilene and Permian are also up for grabs, since no one really knows what these out of state teams bring to the table. I think Abilene wins with Speed Inc. carrying the team while the defense still works out some kinks, and Permian beats the Washington team because they're Mojo;).

Abilene High football coach Steve Warren confirmed Tuesday that the Abilene and Midland school districts are discussing the possibility of moving the AHS-Midland Lee game for television.

The Eagles and Rebels are scheduled to meet Oct. 15 at Midland’s Grande Communications Stadium in the second week of the District 3-5A schedule. The University Interscholastic League prohibits live telecasts of Friday games, but Warren said the school districts are considering playing Oct. 14 — a Thursday — with the game to be carried on ESPN2.

Abilene High’s Sept. 16 game against Tampa (Fla.) Plant will be nationally televised on ESPNU.

Odessa vs. Amarillo Tascosa
Permian vs. Cedar Hill

I'm going 5-1 this week for 3-5A. Once again, the Abilene game is a toss up playing a Florida team, but I think the Eagles will come out on top. Cooper rolls Central, Midland beats Coronado, Lee beats Palo Duro, and the 'Chos beat Tascosa. Cedar Hill will be more than a tough test for Permian, and I don't see Mojo winning this one. Mojo should have home field advantage even though the game isn't at Ratliff (Shotwell in Abilene), but It won't be enough to take down the athletic Longhorns. I would love for the Panthers to break out some of that Mojo magic, but offensive woes in week 0 and defensive struggles in week 1 will be tough to get together IMO.

Cooper 56 - Lubb Coronado 21
OHS 7 - Amarillo 17
Mojo 38 - Lubb Monty 0
MHS 49 - SA Central 14
Lee 24 - Ama Tascosa 21

I guess everyone gets a bye next week and then District play fires up.

It should really be fun to see how it plays out.

The preseason favorite Abilene has stumbled to a 3-2 start against arguably the toughest predistrict schedule in the state.

Cooper has looked fantastic in beating state runnerup Westlake and blowing out some teams they were expected to.

Mojo has been impessive after a slow start against Smithson Valley.

Odessa is 3-2 but has the leading rusher in district in Marquez who I believe is now the leading rusher in OHS history.

Both Midland teams r 5-0 to start district play on a roll.

Cooper looks to be the most complete team right now. I know they have played some weak teams other than westlake but they have totally dominated those teams as they should have. Right now I think they are the team to beat in 3-5A

Im putting AHS and Permian on the same level. AHS is pretty good on both sides of the ball but have some major problems with the oline and the defense got manhandled by Longview last night. Permian offense looks good but their D struggled in the game i saw against CHill. I think if AHS and Mojo can fix the problems they have they will be right in the hunt for the district title.

OHS has a great running back but look to be really one dimensional on off.

MHS and Lee come out of predistrict 5-0 but they played cakewalk schedules and i think both will struggle to win in district play.

Midland high is coming on strong and will be a force to deal with, OHS is going to be easy to focus on but not easy to stop IMHO, Cooper will be high flying and all but it's hard to tell what they have really because their best competition was Westlake who is 2-3 this year, Lee is down and shouldn't be anything but a doormat for the rest of the district. I think it'll come down to a 3 way tie or something like that for the district crown. Could see a bunch of 2-2 teams going into the last week of the season, maybe not idk but I think this'll be the most entertaining district to watch this year.

Based upon what I have seen in Mojo, Cooper and AHS in person. And what I can find on MHS, Lee and OHS. My prediction is as follows:


Abilene High (they have gone 1-4 in a weaker preseason schedule and undefeated in district before!)
Cooper/MOJO (I think these two teams are about equal and on the right night both could beat AHS)
OHS (That RB is worth 2 wins at least)
MHS
Lee

So, in summary I think this will be a great year to watch. Good luck to all and stay healthy

I look at strength of schedule to make any such predictions. In the past, the teams that scheduled tough non-district opponents went into district beating those who had an easy non-district schedule. With that being said, I have to say that Abilene will win district, following Permian/Cooper for the 2nd and 3rd spots, OHS taking the 4th spot and both Midland schools finishing last. In reality, anyone can win district this year and that makes me kind of happy knowing that it's going to be a battle between good quality teams fighting for the bell, but of course, I do want MOJO to take it all. :D

Gonna stick with my 3 way tie scenario and here's my prediction with district records followed by overall records:

AHS (4-1) 7-3
Cooper (4-1) 9-1
Mojo (4-1) 8-2
OHS (1-4) 4-6
MHS (1-4) 6-4
Lee (1-4) 6-4

AHS beats MOJO rather handily, Cooper beats AHS in a nail biter (gasp), Mojo beats Cooper [55-52 in the no defense bowl] and AHS wins the overall tiebreaker and the district bell. OHS beats MHS, MHS beats Lee and Lee beats OHS and OHS takes the tiebreaker.

If there is no actual tiebreaker (only a coin toss) then my theory is shot and I'd say:
AHS 5-0
Cooper 4-1
Mojo 3-2
Odessa 1-4
MHS 1-4
Lee 1-4

Permian can put up points and unlike the other teams (Westlake aside) that Cooper has played, they are not completely inept. Cooper's defense has been an issue for them since Spradlin's first season and it's hard to tell whether or not they've improved b/c of the caliber of teams CHS has played. I just see it being a shootout and Cooper's QB having his first real struggle with turnovers, it happens even to the best of QBs. That said he'll still probably have 400 yds and Cooper will have 200+ on the ground in this game but it'll be a shootout. If I'm wrong then I'm wrong but I just have this feeling.

I'm looking forward to the Permian game at Shotwell!

Cooper's defense has improved, but still has areas it needs to work on. They are hitting much harder and swarming to the ball - that is a good sign. Also they are starting to create some turnovers. Nicholas is getting better and better every week. He only has 2 interceptions and has a very good arm and some big-time stats. Hopefully John Patrick (TE) will be back for the Lee game. The O-line is playing very well IMO. District play will prepare the Coogs for a deep run in the playoffs.

Don't know who the #2 seed in Division 2 will be but it wont make much diffeence as they will be West Texas roadkill for your #1 seed. Who do you guys see in the first round matchups in the meetings between these two districts and the predicted results?

Predicted District Finish:

1. Abilene 5-0
2. Permian 4-1
3. Cooper 3-2
4. Odessa 2-3
5. Midland 1-4
6. Lee 0-5

Although I think things have tightened up from what everyone was thinking before the season has started, I still think AHS is the class of the field, from the competition and experience they bring to the table. Abilene hasn't played a game that wasn't HUGE since week 10 of last year.

Permian and Cooper are very close to each other, both offenses are good to very good and both defenses are so far unproven. I think the game between the two could go either way but am inclined to believe it will be a high scoring affair. Obviously I have that game down as determining the #2 team in district.

Odessa has the unfortunate opportunity to play both Abilene and Cooper at Shotwell and I think that tips that game for each home team to fairly easy wins as far as a district ball game goes. Then I think Permian's D is able to get just enough stops to win the Odessa game.

Midland and Lee are both good teams and certainly could contend for a district title in some districts around the state but unfortunately for them this is shaping up to be an very good, old school LSWC where there are some top teams from the state. So in their game it will be a toss up on who wins but overall I feel Midland has the edge.

This certainly isn't gospel and I could have everything completely backwards but it is the way I feel at the moment. I have a feeling there could be/will be one or two upsets along the way though. Can't wait for next Friday.

Right now I will say that this district is wide open. OHS's ability to successfully throw the ball will determine their fate. If they can throw the ball and make defenses respect the passing game, it will open up the run game and with Marquez that gives them an advantage. Cooper and Midland have been very impressive, will give the edge to Cooper now as they have played a very good Westlake team. Midland could be very scary, but lets see how they react when the close games happen. Abilene is the class. Permian just might be, very quietly, the second best team in the district. Lee has found a way to win against some very weak opponents, with the exception being Amarillo, and have seemed to play down to those teams. I wonder if Lee can withstand the speed that everyone has.

Any way you slice it this is going to be a very tough district. The 2 teams that will stay at home would make the playoffs in pretty much every other district in this state. When they broke this district up 2 years ago you could not say that. This indeed is like old times.

Yes it was Abilene Cooper in 1969. It was the last year of District 3-4A. Actually the LSWC was in 3-4A for only 2 years '68-'69.

1969 was an unbelievable year for the Cougars going 12-0-1. Jack Mildren's brother Richard was the QB for the Coogs. They tie Wichita Falls in the Quarter-Finals 0-0 and the Coyotes advance on first downs. :mad: That was a dang good Cooper team!

Abilene vs. Odessa
Cooper vs. Midland Lee
Permian vs. Midland

I'm picking Abilene, Cooper and Permian to win this week. I think the 'chos are too one dimensional to be able to free up Marquez, but with our O line struggles it could be a low scoring game. Cooper should be the Rebels by a couple scores at least, but I think it will be closer than people think at the half and the Coogs pull away late. Permian and Midland will probably be the best game. Mojo has played better teams, but the Dawgs have beaten their competition soundly. I'm picking Mojo in a close one.

So the first week of district play in the LSWC is in the books....and it was a great night.

Abilene beats Odessa prettily handily 49-21. AHS was up 28-0 at half. OHS opened the second half with Marquez at QB and dominated play in the third qtr cutting the AHS lead to 28-14. AHS capitalizes on 2 INTs in the 4th qtr to seize momentum and win this one.

In a shootout in Midland Cooper beats Lee 56-52. Lee took the lead 52-49 with under 2 minutes remaining but Cooper scores on a 42 yd TD pass to win it. The teams combined for over 1000 yds total offense.

Midland goes to Ratliff and dominates Permian 41-7. WOW!!! Mojos woes have returned....no O or D in this one.

Well, the only game I missed the in the district opening week was Midland over Permian. Here's my week 7 picks.

Abilene vs. Midland Lee
Cooper vs. Permian
Midland vs. Odessa

I'm going with Abilene, Cooper, and Midland. Midland held Permian to 7 points, and should be able to hold the 'chos to a low score with their one dimensional offense. However, watch out for Marquez playing QB. Midland by 21+ Cooper will win another high scoring affair over Permian. Permian scored 53 against Cedar Hill in Abilene, and I don't see Cooper's D making the vast improvements it needs in a weeks time. The Coogs will score as often as they want, though. Cooper by 10. Abilene is finally getting a little bit better O line play to open some lanes for Speed Inc. and our D is much more stout that Cooper's. The tall WR's for Lee could cause some problems in our secondary, but the Rebel's bread and butter is still running the ball which the Eagles are very good at defending. Eagles by 14.

Midland High - 861 Passing, 2,028 Rushing = 2,889 Total
Abilene High - 1,206 Passing, 1,623 Rushing = 2,829 Total

Odessa Permian - 1,122 Passing, 1,478 Rushing = 2,600 Total
Midland Lee - 1,334 Passing, 1,133 Rushing = 2,467 Total

Odessa High - 1,065 Passing, 1,633 Rushing = 2,698 Total
Odessa Permian - 1,199 Passing, 1,591 Rushing = 2,790 Total

Points For:
Abilene Cooper - 46 Avg.
Midland High - 42 Avg.
Abilene High - 39 Avg.
Midland Lee - 34 Avg.
Odessa High - 28 Avg.
Odessa Permian - 27 Avg.

Midland High - 16 Avg.
Odessa Permian - 22 Avg.
Abilene High - 23 Avg.
Abilene Cooper - 25 Avg.
Midland Lee - 30 Avg.
Odessa High - 32 Avg.

It's funny how many say Midland has such a dominant defense, yet Cooper is within 100 yards of the Bulldogs. The Coogs are clearly the leader in stopping the run. The funny thing is Midland and Cooper are almost exact opposites in rushing and passing. Cooper has the most balanced attack on offense. Cooper has allowed 14 TDs rushing and 10 passing, yet the stats on yardage are the opposite. Another interesting note - Lee only gave up 864 yards passing, yet 368 of them were by the Cougars. All in all I like Cooper's chances in district and in the playoffs.

Now before all you Eagle fans dog pile me, I am mixing facts with opinion, as I usually do. :D

As interesting as those stats are...which none of them really surprise me that much btw...no one has come close to playing the schedule of Abilene High. Permian is probably the closest but even they had 2 big cupcakes on their schedule. Abilene's Offense and defensive stats have only improved since district play started and they are leading the district in scoring at the moment after struggling in the predistrict. That ought to show people how tough the defenses they played were (except Belton lol). Seriously, the only stats that matter now are District Wins and District Losses. Perhaps teams give up more yards in the air than on the ground b/c they are ahead and teams need to throw the ball, maybe they've just played more passing teams. Who knows? Maybe teams run the ball against you because you can't stop it. The one thing I'll agree with is that Cooper is the most balanced team and probably toughest to game plan against in the district offensively...which is good b/c their defense is TERRRRRRRIBLE.

You're right one game doesnt. What about two...in a row?? I will agree after watching the highlights and the entire first quater that most of the weakness is in the pass d, however you guys did allow for a few big runs, including at least one big qp keeper. Despite what one Mojo fan is saying, I dont believe our running game to be the fourth best in district. Also Permian's been very hot/cold on offense so hard to say really how good their running game is. Thankfully, this debate will all be tested in a couple weeks. Till then, continue posting your great numbers that include the great wins vs Lubbock High and Monty, WF Rider and SA Central. Hopefully we'll continue working to improve our OL and pass defense.

Also Permian's been very hot/cold on offense so hard to say really how good their running game is. Thankfully, this debate will all be tested in a couple weeks. Till then, continue posting your great numbers that include the great wins vs Lubbock High and Monty, WF Rider and SA Central. Hopefully we'll continue working to improve our OL and pass defense.

Well don't include me in that discussion about the AHS backs. I have the highest respect for them. Btw, Cooper didn't play Monty. ;)

Cooper has given up the big play and that does concern me. At the same time they get key stops to win games. But to say they are terrible is ridiculous. If that were the case they wouldn't be winning games. I can't remember how many times they pressure the opposing QB and put big hits on them. They need to improve on pass coverage and tackling. A terrible defense doesn't create three turnovers vs. Permian.

I think Cooper's stats are skewed because of the cupcake predistrict schedule they played.....5 teams that are a combined 10-25.

The Cooper D does give up alot of big plays but they have made some key stops and have won.....mainly on the strength of a very explosive offense. That defense is eventually gonna cost them some games when they play some teams that play solid defense....which I dont believe they have seen this year.

Everybody said the same thing about us last year. The better judge of character is looking at common opponent's, and with only one thus far I don't think much of it. YES we put up 49 by halftime on the same team that took cooper to the wire, but that was just one game. I'll wait until after this week to pass judgment on cooper. That being said, I know they can't hang with us ;)

Exactly, and we never got ANY respect last year until the Cedar Hill win which was 3 weeks into the playoffs. Cooper will be facing the same naysayer attitude even if they win district.

Coopers O is every bit as explosive as ours this year....the difference will be defense. I've seen both teams play multiple times this year and I think our D is better....regardless of 78s stats.

Interesting how close they are..

Agreed. However, there are a couple of differences that stand out to me. AHS has scored 36 more points while allowing 37 less than Cooper. AHS seems to do a little more with the yards they gain than Cooper does. Also, the Eagle blackshirts are statistically better than the Cooper defense. However, I'm not sure I would put too much stock into that...

Can't wait for 10/29...looks like it's shaping up to be a great game, with possibly the district title on the line!

I would put all my stock in that. Cooper D gives up way too many big plays. AHS D is better and will be the difference when these two meet. The one thing that worries me is that Cooper rushing attack though.

Not really surprised by the offensive numbers.....both Os are good and can put up some big numbers in a hurry.

What I meant was that stats can be deceiving, especially since these are based on just two games. I have to agree that I believe our defense is the better of the two.

As far that rushing attack goes, I think it depends on how well our defense can control the line of scrimmage. As we saw earlier in the season, if we fail to do that, we're in for a rough going.

Think Cooper might try any wildcat after seeing how our defense struggled with it against Odessa?

About time to make my picks before I head out to Midland.

Abilene vs. Midland
Cooper vs. Odessa
Permian vs. Midland Lee

I'm going with Abilene, Cooper, and Permian. Midland has a stout D, but we're finally healthy and the O line is finally coming together. Close through 3 but the Eagles pull away in the 4th by 17. Cooper will once again win a high scoring affair (if Marquez plays). Cooper has a knack for going up big plays and Marquez will take a couple to the house. Cooper by 10. Permian has a high octane offense at times and Lee's defense is less than stellar. The Mojo D wasn't all world either, so this could be a high scoring game as well. Mojo by 21.

Okay, so AHS & Cooper are both in the playoffs for sure. Midland is pretty much a lock with Lee and Cooper left to play; Lee is currently in position to take the 4th spot with Midland & Odessa left.

Commentary...??

Well another week down in the LSWC.

AHS 28 - MHS 18
Cooper 45 - OHS 8
Lee 20 - Mojo 13

Standings after Week 8 with 2 weeks left in the reg season

Abilene 3-0
Cooper 3-0
Midland 2-1
Lee 1-2
OHS 0-3
Permian 0-3

Some big crosstown showdowns next week that will go a long way in settling the district championship & race for the POs.
