  • Mike Says: The Mustangs will have lots of offensive firepower this year with running back Aaron Jones leading the way. Look for them to go 8-2 or 7-3 in the regular season and come in 2nd or 3rd in the district behind El Paso Chapin.
  • Chris Says: El Paso Burges had a great season last year but do not bring back a lot of experience.  One horse these Mustangs do have in the corral is Aaron Jones at running back. (Did you like all those horse terms in one sentence?)  Jones will do his thing again on the ground and if the rest of the offense comes along, they will be right back in the playoff picture.
