Notes:
* Have made the Quarterfinals the last 2 seasons and have 5 straight regional titles

  • Mike Says: The Rattlers QB Baker has lots of great targets that include WR McGinty and Collins. On the defensive side, they will be very good with LB's Minor and Imhoff along with DL Bauer and DB Creeks. In all, that makes 7 all-state players returning. They have a great pre-district schedule that includes Wills (who beat the Rattlers last year 35-28), Coldspring-Oakhurst (TOP 10 3A) and Lexington (TOP 5 2A DII). This team will be very exciting to watch and could be a championship team. Look for them to go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season and make their 3rd consecutive trip to the Quarterfinals. If district foe Taylor makes the playoffs then they will be a Division II team if not then they will be going Division I.
  • Chris Says: Navasota is going to once again field one of the top teams in the state.  They bring back some solid experience on both sides of the ball including the Baker/McGinty aerial connection, but on of the areas that has been overlooked has been their seriously tough defense.  The Rattlers will once again bump heads with the top programs in the state and hold them to just a couple touchdowns.  Their playoff run will be littered with fallen foes early on and if the matchups stay in their favor, we should seem them playing in December.

    If Navasota gets to the quarterfinals, that will make it their 6th consecutive trip, not third.
