On Thursday, officials with the Greater El Paso Football Showcase released the results of their most recent combine for local high school football players.
“El Paso not being in a metropolitan area, it is difficult for many colleges to recruit El Paso, GEPFS head Rick Hernandez shares. “The combine focuses on Division I, II, and NAIA colleges to visit El Paso students that were not recruited by Division I colleges.”
“These colleges attend with the intent to offer scholarships immediately to the El Paso athletes,” Hernandez added. “Scholarships range from athletic, academic, or financial need base.”
As of August 28, 2019; 59 athletes received offers in the 2018 Combine and 16 athletes will be playing in the 2019 College Football season. Students scholarships total: $1,792,560.00.
The GEPFS combine has been in existence since December 2011. During the last eight years, the combine has awarded over $14.1 Million worth of scholarships to nearly 200 El Paso students.
With this year’s numbers added, the amount that the combine has awarded since 2011 increases to $15.8 Million.
35 colleges with 42 college coaches attended the 2019 combine. The colleges range from throughout Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Nebraska, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Kansas, Arizona, Oregon, Wisconsin, Illinois, North Dakota, Missouri, Iowa, and Indiana.
Officials with the Greater El Paso Football Showcase encourage all student athletes to sign up online at gepfs.org to participate in the 2019 El Paso Combine scheduled for December 20th, 2019 at the Socorro Student Activities Complex (SAC).

As the region continues to recover from the events of August 3rd, a special event was held at historic R.R. Jones Stadium, on the campus of El Paso High School, Saturday night.
Organized by the Greater El Paso Football Showcase and Prep1, scores of football players from around the area took to the field and grandstands, replete in their respective school colors, to show the city and the world that everyone here is ‘El Paso Strong.’

With the new draft format, the old battles of East versus West are long gone, replaced with talent split between the two squads. This year the win went to the BlueThunder, as they downed the RedStorm 47-29.
Our very own Chief Photographer Andres ‘Ace’ Acosta, as well as Johnny Yturales were there and we bring you their view of the game in this ‘Story in Many Pics.’
On a Saturday where the weather was changing as much as a scared defense in front of a red-hot hurler, all-star quarterbacks from around the El Paso area gathered at the Sun Bowl for a head-to-head competition.
The wind howled, dust swirled and the temperature dropped, but that didn’t stop fans or players in the annual Greater El Paso Football Showcase at the Sun Bowl Saturday afternoon.
The city’s all stars gathered for one last game as high school football players; wearing the colors of not one school, but many. And while this year’s game favored the East 58 to 2, all involved enjoyed the gridiron one last time.
