Surprise, Surprise, Riverside goes to next round. And was their win barley a squeaker? No I don’t think so! No disrespect to the Chapin fans, coaches, and players but they seemed overwhelmed by the type of game riverside played. There was dominance in defense, boards, and turnovers. Gentlemen (Edward Egros, John Erfort, and Lenny Jurado) do your homework before predicting basketball games. This victory was impressive can they keep it up?
How far can Riverside go in the Playoffs? Who cares! What is important is the outstanding job Coach Vela and his staff have achieved. The future looks bright for Riverside Basketball.

Dawgfan

i would just like to congratulate the bulldogs on thier first win this season over mr. jurados #3 team in the city riverside. i must admit the rangers looked salty but seem to lack depth on the mound. on the upside i would like to mention that gabe aguilar threw a no hitter which by the way was not noted in todays paper. thus, coach melendez i dont think its very wise to make ur ace catch after pitching great for three innings against the cities #1 team on pretty much a preseason scrimmage game.

Indians Rule

OH PLEASE, beating chapin doesn't really qualify as moving on to the next round. Their only in the Northeast. wait till next week.

Dawgfan

Congratulations to Coach Chris Forbes on surpassing the coach form burgess for the all time winning record in el paso baseball history. 508 and counting!!!

WOW! Did you guys notice WHO'S NOT in the Girls State Basketball Playoffs!!
Even my alma mater Jefferson Silver Foxes were taken out early. I was just reading an earlier question posted by somebody asking why the Americas girls basketball team wasn't ranked earlier in the year. It's a dogfight here in dallas. The number one ranked Timberview girls basketball team just lost to another dallas area team the eagles from Desoto. Looking at the playoffs there are still about 3 dallas area teams left in the 5A bracket including Duncaville, Desoto,and Garland Namaan Forest. Can't wait to see the dallas teams match up against the houston teams--should be great. Maybe next year is an El Paso teams year--I'll keep my fingers crossed...love my foxes!!!!

The Troop

Dawg Fan, You can't compare Coach Forbes record with Coach Osbourne's Record. Coach Osbourne did it without cheating and recruiting players , He did it with the kids that lived in the burgess area. Thank you.

frank bustillos

Coach Pippen (hope that's how you spell it), congratulations on a great year...just read what you had to say after your loss to Mansfield....good to hear how special this years team was...good character, good sportmanship....two very important qualitites

knowledgeable

Troop....you couldnt have said it any better! Forbes has won may games and kudos for the record...but over the last 7 - 8 years, it doesnt have the same gusto since he has done with so many players from other schools...can you say asterisk?

Dawgfan

show us the proof...didnt the i team do an investigation about this last year? sounds like someone is a sore loser to me. last time i checked when things like this come up they are investigated very seriously. since this team was tearing other opponents apart when they were freshmen on the JV level, people like u have been throwing the recruiting card around...its been three yrs. no action has been taken, why??? because it isnt true!!! when riverside was killing everyone in football coach work was accused of the same thing. when ur a good coach ur a good coach thats the bottom line, maybe u should look inside the box instead of outside to find the excuses you're looking for to satisfy ur self of the questions of why eastwoods program is so weak. or better yet look at the history of the "troop" program since mr. cazares was the so called coach after filling in for coach saenz, ur program has been in shambles. now with ruly medrano behind the wheel...no wonder ur looking for such lame excuses. that program had a bright future when his brother was involved but now who knows. in other words stop drinking the haterade and just let the kids play ball. just in case u didnt know the doggs r coming to ur house tomorrow i wonder what excuses will come about wed.

Dawgfan

nothing but props to Carlos Maese of ysleta for throwing that no hitter!!! i've followed this kid since he played coach pitch with the seminoles to playing hard ball with the el paso diamonds. great young man on and off the field just hope playing at a 4A school doesnt effect his chances to advance to the next level.

trooper university

dawg fans,itsn't it odd that the i team investigates you all every year. Everyone knows that the kids all the kids there do not live in socorro area. We won't bring up names of which kids cuz you all know.

meangreen

You are right troop university. Socorro is like the baseball players being tested for steroids. they are fake.Coach Osbourne did not recruit from the whole city,ic coach Forbes afraid of playing with true socorro players? Maybe then he might have to earn that win, but it doesn't matter you all fail like any other el paso team. No matter how much you brag about how far you go in playoffs no one remembers the losers.

Dawgfan

if this was the case we all know that action would be taken but like i said before where is the proof??? sounds like all the haters have a problem with the UIL rules. and its obvious u remember the losers meangreen and how far they get into the playoffs cuz ur talking about it. quick question is there a special on HATERADE in el paso cuz it seems like all the haters r coming out. like the saying goes "dont hate us cuz u aint us" how bout we let the bats and gloves do the talking!!! oh meangreen (15-3) run ruled in the championship game oouch i think baseball fans all over the city will remember that one. looks like someone is calling the kettle black!!!

Dawgfan

just got back from the game and all u trooper haters (15-1) run rule in 5 innings. it sure looked like u all have a lot more to worry about then socorro and that recruiting card u troopers like to throw around... starting with the coaching. i know ruly medrano cant go swing the bat for u but come on coach throw some batting practice or something. hey lenny the head line should read "DOGS ROUT medrano and THE GOOF TROOP" trooper university i think its odd the i team doesnt investigate how the news media teacher at ehs is qualified to coach at the varsity level...oh i forgot it was a process of elimination cazares out medrano in.go figure!!!

The Troop

We could win too if we had 20 year olds playing also. Jesus how many years do those kids stay there in the freshman class.

bb fan

You know it is getting a little boring listening to dogfan talk hot air. Everyone knows even you that those kids in the program are transfers. Yes they might be legal now(for school purposes only)but they are not originally from the school district. I think what every one is annoyed about is why don't you just send your kid to the school they belong to. I think you all as parents let your kids get lost in the shuffle and forget that it is education first. Baseball will come and go but they should have a chance at an education that pursues farther than their parents. You all seem to forget they are not gouing to become professionals even though you may think so you know they are not. By the way what was the name of one of the teams that lost in the sweet sixteen 5 years ago.I think that is what they meant, that no one remembers the losers. So quit being such an embarassing mexican macho and support all el paso teeams. You might enjoy it and by the way I think that is so humiliating that you parents from Socorro put down last years seniors. What kind of parents are you all!!!!!!

troop university

You are right troop I think I even saw them with gray hair already and they have kids also.

knowledgeable

Dawgfan...seriously...you guys are very talented and very loaded...noone is denying that, but come on..I know for a fact that Olivas and Falvey should be at Montwood...and Stoltz should be at Ysleta...sis just graduted a couple of years ago from there! And thats just a few to name...now don't get me wrong..its not that I want to use the recruiting card..but thats how things have transitioned.... Whether or not UIL rules allow it do not act naive to the fact that its visibly obvious what has been going on.
But alas...They are Number 1 till someone takes it from them! Just don't try to insult our intellegence with your "haterade" comments, thats your way of deflecting truthful facts and statements. Oh and one more thing...I'd love to see Master Forbes win with lesser talent...then I might hail him along with the Coach Osborne's, Coach Beltran Sr's, Mike William's, and Coach Saenz' of the World.

Caught Looking

Knowleable, Well said and awesome list. Your right man those guys where awesome. Coach Beltran a Hero to the Ysleta Community for people that do not after he won District AT PARKLAND of all schools he was out of a coaching job He would come down to the Ysleta and help all us kids after our practice for free. Coach Obsborne another man of Honor. Don't get mad my baseball brothers but we would beat those Burgess boys in the summer and in school league, guess what , They would put beat downs on us Osborne Stragies Coach Mike Williams a Legend and we all new it even before he became a legend.
Dawg Fan the thing is when your good you don't have to tell everyone your good they will know. If your not really that good than you have to tell everyone your good. I suspect your one of those parents that transfered your kid to Socorro and is now on the bench wishing you had left him at his own school.

Dawgfan

finaly some since bbfan thanks for admiting the kids are legal...enough said!!! mr. troop get over it, first the recruitment card now u want birth certificates cant u see the trend. knowledgeable, did u not read bbfans post...the kids are legally attending socorro i think ur problem is with UIL not Socorro and yes the dogs are king of the hill till proven other wise and so is their skipper forbes till proven other wise, osborne was the best in ep history now forbes is...508 and counting, remember? and by the way the starters were pulled after the first inning against eastwood so i guess forbes can win with lesser talent did it against montwood, americas and lubbuck coronado. sometimes u just have to give credit where credit is due, dont u think? bbfan its not hot air by the way, its the truth these people in here just cant handle it...instead of trying to find ways to make ur kids better ball players by sending them to camps and putting there kids up against the best talent there is available nationally, in town and out of town which is what these kids at socorro have done every year since the age of eight these people are to busy in other peoples business trying to find excuses of why mijito cant through as hard as them or run as fast as them or hit as far as them invest that time and money into ur childs career then maybe u wont have to make excuses. ur child will get a chance to play at the next level and further their education. and caught looking u r wrong very wrong...ice cold buddy!!! i suspect ur the kid who always played in the leagues where nobody keeps score and was never part of a winning team. dont confuse confidence with a winning attitude if ur not in it to when it then why play at all. i guess i will end at this all u haters hate if u wish. i have proven my point about this subject and it is obvious u all agree...socorro has no illegal players and forbes is the best coach in ep history stats and facts prove all this. of course u may have ur opinion but facts are facts.

The Heater

Dawg Fan, lol I know who your are, you are the parent whose kid doesn't play.lol . Parents like you make the most noise, and Rant and Rave hoping the coach notices you and puts your kid in. Give it up already They did check birth certificates but all you could produce was Batismo certificates and we all know those can be doctored. Dawg Fan keep ahollering maybe they will put your kid in . lol

Socorro Teacher

I believe people transfer to Socorro because our academic standards are so low. To Dawg Fan please quit embarrasing us. We have the worst parents in the district and we are in first place. We don't need parent like you. To the person that said a players sister was from Ysleta , I believe that was his cousin.

troop university

Sorry teacher it is his sister(stolz)that went to ysleta,but she didn't live in that area either neither of them do they belong to DelValle. But typical they are going where sports is. Isn't that sad. All that for what, where is she now!This is the point! quit moving your kids for the wrong reason. If more parents kept their kids at the school where they belong,we could really see who is a great coach.

viewer

It isn't a coaches fault if kids and parents want to transfer to "where their sport is". At most the coaches at these schools are guilty of building programs that people want to play for. While it is sad that parents parents would rather look at athletics before academics, the coach isn't to blame. I guess its a damned if you do, damned if you don't sort of thing. You build a winning program, you get accused of recruiting. Build a losing program, get fired.
