Carlsbad and Las Cruces both have records of 8-2. Neither team is district champion. Carlsbad beat Mayfield, but Las Cruces lost when they played Mayfield. In addition, Las Cruces beat Artesia by only four points, while Carlsbad defeated Artesia in a romp (48-21). It boggles the mind that Las Cruces should be ranked so high (even winning a first-round bye)and Carlsbad so low. These rankings don't appear to be fair or equitable. Shame on the NMAA for such blatant favoritism!!

The north will always make the decision s, what Carlsbad can do is hire an offensive coordinator that will use all the talent we have here. Stephens only cares to make his son a star quarterback , which he's not. Number 88, Shakur could play any where as a workhorse, but here in Carlsbad the system won't allow a black young man to lead our team to a championship. Put 88 at fullback, let him get 15 touches. That will open our passing game and the other backs will do just fine. Or keep looking.
