As El Paso Eastwood prepares to start preseason practice, the Troopers will have a new signal caller in 2017. As first reported by Felix Chavez of the El Paso Times, senior quarterback Seth Ochoa will not be a part of the football team this season and will instead choose to focus on play baseball. Ochoa is a current Texas Tech commit for baseball.

The senior played in just three games for the Troopers in 2016 before a torn ACL in the game at Odessa Permian ended his season early. Prior to his injury, Ochoa had already accounted for 844 total yards and 12 touchdowns in less than three games.

After participating in spring football in May, he was hoping to make a big comeback on the gridiron this upcoming season. Now with less than three weeks to go before the season starts, head coach Julio Lopez will be tasked with finding a new quarterback before the season.

The Troopers open the season on the road at Midland Christian on September 1.
