I’ve hidden the offensive post and disciplined the member who posted it. That was inappropriate. 

This was the best 2a game I have seen played in East Texas in a while. None of that 7 on 7 touch football some schools play. Just plain old physical football. Two teams not just trying to outscore eac

Just because they beat Joaquin that means they automatically gonna give us a game...gtfoh

If we play like the girls in yo town then y’all’s ftball team is in trouble..... cuz yall got some she beast that could play in the trenches

If y’all had a little more heart then y’all might could compete with a squad of our girls. But everybody knows the Mams ain’t bout that life this Friday night. Tell them seniors to soak in this final ride.

I will say this for the last decade or so Alto has had some issues with hard nosed slot teams. Alto does not like being on defense very long. This year they don't seem to have been on defense much of the season either. If Joe owns the trenches and can prove to sustain drives and punch it in I'll give Joe a shot. How does the Trench battle seem to shape up. Joe's favor or Alto's?

Based on film, I like the matchup, particularly if we get our big lineman back. But we have to be able to get upfield and get a body on the ILBs. Those kids are as good as we’ve seen.

The thing that does worry me in this game is that Alto hasn’t had a competitive game since Carlisle really. I know the coach’s will have them coached up but I hope they aren’t coming in a little flat. Even coming in and playing hot from the get go this could be a good game. Joaquin looks to be one of the more physical if not the most physical team that Alto has played to date. 
 

Alto’s schedule wasn’t as tough, as Gilbert has mentioned, but I do think there is a win everyone just glossed over lately.  New Diana - Alto dominates that game and they were a playoff team in their district and up into the last week could have even been the two seed. They also put up a solid performance against Newton this last week. 
 

If both teams come out and play ball as they should and Joaquin puts together a complete game this will be a barn burner. Alto will HAVE to limit the turnovers. That has been a thorn in their side for the last couple years and even early on this year. If Alto keeps the mistakes down I see this as a 7-10 pt game for them but if they make a couple mistakes Joaquin could easily take this one.

My guess is we came out flat, I mean we are talking about Union Grove! You can be four times better and only have 40 yards rushing on the night, total rushing yards was 0! Jooooooooooooooaquin, since we adding letters for loses!

Damb. All those o’s you almost exceeded the character limit allowed for your comment. Easy 44 lol. You won’t have enough space to say what you’re trying to say if we spell their name with the right amount of letters.
