Friday night-lights will be shining even brighter this week in San Marcos as the San Marcos Rattlers begin district play. The Rattlers will be hosting the Akins Eagles at 7:30 p.m. on Friday. The game will be held at San Marcos High School football stadium.
The Rattlers are coming off a bye week last week after defeating McCollum, in San Antonio the week before by a score of 49-27. The Rattlers head into Friday holding a 2-3 pre-district record but have high expectations for district.
Offensive Line coach, Bruce Webb, isn’t really concerned about the bye week coming in after a win and losing any momentum from it.
Akins will head down into San Marcos coming off their third straight loss looking to get back on track. Akins also holds a 2-3 record and would love to get back in the win column by stealing a win on the road here. Webb also touched on how Akins has looked this year despite the 2-3 start, and how his guys must be ready.
The real season starts now for the Rattlers with all teams starting over 0-0. These are the games that determine if you make the playoffs or not. Look for the Rattlers to come out with some energy Friday night.
