In the 1970s-early 1990s Eastwood's football team was one of the best teams in El Paso, and had heated rivalries with Coronado, Bel Air (Battle of Helmet rivals used to meet in the Sun Bowl) and Hanks because of their success. The last championship Eastwood has won was in 1999 when they defeated Coronado for the Bi-District title. Eastwood's last time playoff appearance was in 2005 after 6-5 record. Since then, though, Eastwood has been one on the least competitive teams in District 1-5A. Eastwood lost 25 straight games, beginning with two consecutive 0-10 seasons in 2008 and 2009. Eastwood finally defeated Riverside High School in a 32-26 in a thriller to end their losing streak in 2010. Eastwood finished off the season 3-7.
