Get over it already. Pojoaque has never claimed to be better than anyone. All they have said is that they have improved and they have shown that this year. Last year when everyone was killing Pojoaque's 15 man team it was okay, we never heard anything other than Pojoaque should give up football. This year that they have won a few games all you can do is put down these kids. Well I'm here to tell you they have worked their butts off this year so quit putting them down and give them the credit they deserve. GO ELKS!

Where are all the Loud mouths now that the Elks are getting their behinds handed to them? What credit do these kids deserve? They have not gained any respect in 3AAA. Even Quarterback Garcia admits that. Horsemen will CRUSH the Elks.

I am not a Elks fan but give these young men credit when credit is due. They are having a good season. They are giving a good foundation in football. The coach is giving them a good stability. Hold your heads up Elks!!! By the way Football is Raton's main sport, the rest of their sport's teams like basketball is sub-par.

"WHAT CREDIT DO THESE KIDS DESERVE?" You have some nerve. Despite whether the team wins or loses, these kids, all athletes, deserve credit. They spend many days and long hours at practices, they deserve 100% of the credit. Being on a team is more than just winning. Keep your idiotic comments to yourself.

Keep your heads up Elks!!!! We support you and believe in you!

To pojo who.

I hope the Elks coach prints your statement and puts it up in their locker room. You are one of those fans who makes me want to crush you, and Im not even an Elks fan. Grow up and stop that greater than everyone attitude some St. M fans have.Nobody mentioned the Horsemen in this article. Mind your own buisness.

Go back to some of the posts from earlier this season. Pojoaque fans were talking a ton of trash about how they were going to crush St. Mikes. I'd like to hear from them now. I am talking about the fans here, not the team. I do believe that the Team and Coach deserve alot of credit for their improvement. The fans however, shouldn't be shooting off their mouths because they won a few games.
