Better Football Power Newton or WOS?

No.  Aldine had some stud teams and in fact was ranked 2 or 3 in the state in 1985 and I believe won it in the late 80's or early 90's with Bill Smith.  But in 1987 it was MacArthur who was the stud team in Aldine ISD.

Nimitz, I think had a few work horses as well they gave the Silver&Blue all they could handle that year. But yes macarthur=loaded.  

You would think ole Coach Hooks being he had a couple decent players from '85 ish for sure up til '88 would have rather stayed in 5A (really that just a fairytale I have told myself and wished would have happened over the years. Lol.)

But NO NO NO the damn UIL  took upon themselves to give Jasper a new district opponent and 4A as a whole  pleasure of dealing with teams that were very well oiled machines to say the least. 

During that span we had a few alright players on our team. 😞

So who was last years' six man or TAPPS champion?  Nobody can answer that without looking it up.   Everybody knows who the big school champions were.... because they obviously matter more.

 

 

You said 3A.....

No.  Absent the special teams that the Eagles had over the last few years, the Mustangs should take the Eagles, just as I would expect Memorial or West Brook to take the Mustangs, yet that doesn't make them more of a football powerhouse than West Orange-Stark.

Also, the Eagles have been on their current run for about 12-15 years longer than the Mustangs have.  The current run for the Eagles began about 1970 while the Mustangs didn't start their playoff roll until 1985.

The Eagles haven't missed the playoffs in 32 years (1988).  The Mustangs have missed the playoffs 5 times (1992-although that was due to forfeit, 1999, 2001, 2002, 2003) in that same period.

The Mustangs are a HUGE football powerhouse and just about any other team in this area wouldn't stack up.  But the Eagles aren't any other team.

Do you remember what happened to jump start the Mustangs playoff roll in the 80's?

It depends on who you ask.  Many will point to the 1985 team, WO-S' last team before moving to 4A (what is now 5A).  That team went 11-1-1, had it's first 10-0 regular season, finished the regular season ranked #4 in 5A and took the 1985 Yates team, which went on to capture the 5A State Championship and is considered by some the best in Texas High School History, to the limit.

But I think that the 1984 season, even though the Mustangs didn't make the playoffs, was the turning point.  They were in a season in which "the change" occurred, which meant that there was a big attitude change which resulted in the Mustangs beating then #9 ranked West Brook and recovering from what is still the Mustangs' only onfield losing season and were in the playoff hunt until the last week of the regular season.  The '85 team built off of that team and made the playoffs for the first time in 6 years and the '86 team won WO-S' first state championship 2 years later.

I remembered the dropping down in division. I always believed that was nitrous for your program. I knew you were competitive because we played you. Yates was a beast in the 80's. There was some NFL players on that team. You shared more detail than outsiders had been privy to. I still believe you could compete in 6A at least on a local level. WOS dominance then and now (30+ yrs) is the reason I believe you are the premier football powerhouse in the area.
