  • Mike Says:The Rattlers have 14 starters returning from a 9-2 playoff team. This year they will be strong on the offensive line. Look for them to go 8-2 or 9-1 in the regular season and win the district championship. They will be a Division I playoff team and will go 1 or 2 rounds in the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: Mission Sharyland brings back most of their defensive and a good portion of their offensive starters.  While they do have a new head coach, Ron Adame, he is not new to the program.  Adame was most recently the Rattlers Offensive Coordinator and has been involved with Mission Sharyland for 17 years.  With this much continuity, the Ratters' offense will do fine.  Their defense brings back 8 starters, so it too should be fine.  Long story short - look for the Rattlers to again take the District 30-5A crown and have their typical two playoff games.
