Eagles to kick-off season in August for first time
The Pecos Eagles football season will be starting in August for
the first time in 2001, when they take on the Kermit Yellowjackets
in the first of their five pre-district games.
The Eagles' 2001 football schedule includes home games against former
_ and possibly future _ district rivals Fort Stockton and Monahans, while
Pecos will play three of their five District 2-4A games out of town this
season. The Kermit game will be played during the "zero week" which began
five years ago but was only used by the Eagles for the first time last season.
It allows Pecos to take a week off before the start of district play in October.
The Eagles went 6-5 last season, finishing second in the district standings
to El Paso Mountain View before falling to El Paso Parkland in the bi-district
round of the Class 4A playoffs. Mountain View will be one of Pecos' three
out-of-town games in district, on Nov. 2, with the others being their 2-4A
opener on Oct. 12 at Clint and at Canutillo on Oct. 26.
Their two home games in district play are on Oct. 19, and Nov. 9 against
Fabens and San Elizario, while they'll host Fort Stockton on Sept. 7 and
Monahans on Sept. 28, which will also be the 2001 homecoming game for the
Eagles. This season, Pecos' home games will start at 8 p.m. during pre-district
play and at 7:30 p.m. for their 2-4A contests, while the road game starting
times are reversed _ the Eagles will kick off their pre-district games in
September at Alpine and Presidio at 7:30 p.m., while their 2-4A contests
after that will start at 8 p.m. Central time, 30 minutes earlier than last
The Eagles will have one other out-of-town trip on their schedule, an
Aug. 18 scrimmage at Carlsbad, starting at 11 a.m. CDT. Pecos' junior varsity
team will also scrimmage at Carlsbad that day, while the freshmen will host
the Cavemen in their Aug. 18 scrimmage.
