Season openers are notoriously tough to dissect. Were the Hawks simply that good, or did the Matadors underwhelm? We may not able to accurately answer this until at least a month of the season has passed. cheap nfl jerseys

just wanted to come out and show the state that we have something in store, wide receiver David Cormier said.

How impressive were the Hawks? Well, more than one spectator at the Volcano Sandia game wondered aloud when Volcano Vista was going to play Cleveland. (Answer: Oct. 23)

UNDER THE MICROSCOPE: Individually, one of the best debuts was that of Rio Rancho quarterback Steve Bailey.

To my eyes, he frequently looked shaky in the Rams scrimmage with Eldorado, but Bailey was sure footed and sure armed against Valley, completing 60 percent of his passes for 251 yards and two touchdowns. He was outstanding.

wasn nervous, Bailey said. was just really excited to finally start. asked him to take care of the football and make good decisions, and he did that, added Rio Rancho coach David Howes.

Eldorado Jayce Jackson also had his first start at QB in the Eagles first post Zach Gentry outing. Jackson completed six of seven passes for 79 yards in Eldorado 52 0 romp over Rio Grande.

It is unfair to attach any significance whatsoever to Jackson performance, since Rio Grande is clearly the worst team the Eagles will face. Eldorado meets Valley next, then West Mesa, and then a grueling stretch against Volcano Vista, Mayfield and Cleveland.

NEW COACHING REPORT CARD: Four new head coaches debuted this weekend in the metro area. Valencia Collin Justiss lost his opener at Alamogordo, Bernalillo John Cobos lost at Taos, and Sam Mascarenas of Rio Grande was beaten by Eldorado.

Only Gary Beck of Hope Christian won his first official game as head coach, as the Huskies on Saturday beat Albuquerque Academy.

THREE OUT OF FOUR AIN BAD: With the addition of Gary Bradley at Carlsbad, three of the four head coaches in District 4 6A have won state championships.

They have combined for 15, in fact.

Eric Roanhaus has 10 titles at Clovis. Charles Gleghorn won three at Hatch Valley and a fourth at Mesilla Valley before he left for Hobbs. And Bradley took Farmington to a blue trophy in 2013.

The fourth is Dale Hooper of Alamogordo, who believes his team is capable of adding his name to that list.

ALL IN THE FAMILY: Jersey makers in Artesia must surely be familiar by now of the name Houghtaling.

Justin Houghtaling, the Bulldogs starting quarterback, is the fourth Houghtaling to play that position at Artesia.

His father Jeff was QB at Artesia in the early 1990s, and Justin uncle Ty was the Bulldogs QB several years after that. Justin older brother Josh quarterbacked Artesia five years ago.

Jeff Houghtaling later played for the University of New Mexico, and Ty for New Mexico State.

SOUTHERN COMFORT: While the top two quarterbacks in New Mexico were in the metro area last year Gentry and Rio Rancho Easton Bruere the south is filled with outstanding QBs in 2015.
