Point Of Strength: Rushing Attack
NMPreps.com Breakdown: Escalante was 9-0 until week 10 when they lost to McCurdy 54-46 in a 1A shootout. This team has been consistent all season long putting up big points thanks to offensive duo Reynaldo Atencio and Cody Casados. Escalante also has home field advantage on their end if a Southern team has to make the trip to the near border town of Colorado. They are well coached and it's going to take a team that can score 50 to beat them.

#4 Ft. Sumner Foxes

Head Coach: Mat Moyer
Overall: 5-5
Season Wins: Capitan, McCurdy, Loving, Jal
Season Losses: Santa Rosa, Tucumcari, Texico, Escalante, and Hagerman
Point Of Strength: Tradition
The Breakdown: The Ft. Sumner Foxes are .500 this season after a season ending win over the Jal Panthers 41-13. No other program in New Mexico at the small school level as more pride and winning tradition than Ft. Sumner and they'll take any first round match up down to the wire. This season, the Foxes have been led by Shilo Boyle and Dallas McDaniel at Running Back.

#5 Capitan Tigers

Head Coach: Collin Justiss
Overall: 6-3
Season Wins: Estancia, NMMI, Loving, Cloudcroft, Mescalero, Magdalena,
Season Losses: Hagerman, Jal, Ft. Sumner
Point Of Strength: Full Health
The Breakdown: The Tigers started the year out 0-3 after dealing with some early loss key injuries, but in their last six games of the season we saw the Capitan Tigers play some outstanding football outscoring the final six opponents they faced by a combined score of 333-14. A very dangerous bunch led by Jacob Willcox at running back and Thomas Fields at Linebacker. This is by far the hottest team in Class 1A right now and no one wants to draw them in round one.

#6 Magdalena Steers

Head Coach: Billy Page
Overall: 5-4
Season Wins: Ramah, Alamo Navajo, Cuba, Mescalero, Cloudcroft,
Season Losses: Escalante, Hatch, McCurdy, Capitan
Point Of Strength: Defense
The Breakdown: The Magdalena Steers have played a good schedule and though they ended the year losing to Capitan 61-8, Magdalena has proven over the season that they can win the big game. This is could be a sleeper upset in round one, but they'll have to play perfect to advance.
