11:04 AM Your District 26-6A Champion Reagan Rattlers (8-1, 5-0) will conclude the regular season tonight against Roosevelt (4-5, 2-3). After a 4th-stright district crown, RRHS will look to finish off 26-6A undefeated.
11:05 AM Roosevelt has been close well into the 4th quarter of 2 of their 3 district losses and was leading Johnson until a miracle hook & ladder at the end of the game. They did, however, lose 44-14 to Madison.
11:08 AM Marquis Duncan has dominated this district. He leads 26-6A in rushing (1300 yards), TD's (19) and overall scoring (114). Roosevelt's QB (#6) Bryson Carroll is #2 in most offensive categories. He is behind Duncan in both rushing yards and overall scoring and is 3rd in the district in passing yards.
11:11 AM But....This RRHS defense is humbling most opponents. Top-level players have struggled to perform against this unit all season. Kyle Anderson, Leighton Dimando & Spencer Gilliam all rank in the top-5 in tackles in 26-6A. Grant...look for the defense to figure Carroll as a final challenge and a tune-up for the playoffs. I am guessing Coach Hamilton will be disguising some blitz packages and movement up-front tonight.
11:15 AM Here is a quick playoff update for Rattler fans....Reagan will play Austin Westlake in bi-district. The game will be at Heroes next Friday at 7:30p. Texas Football.com says Madison will play Lake Travis and Johnson and Churchill will be headed to the D-II bracket with either Vandergriff or Leander. Unless something very odd happens tonight, that is how next week will shape-up.
11:16 AM Also....Here's a shout-out to Derek Kerstetter. This week Derek had the jersey presentation for his selection to play in the U.S. Army All-American game. A well-deserved honor for a great player and great kid.
11:17 AM Let's get it on....Strike'em Rattlers.
1:49 PM Paul, The District Champion Reagan Rattlers will be looking to continue their winning ways tonight against a talented Roosevelt team which has been close to pulling off a big upset in 26-6A.
1:51 PM A fast start tonight in all phases of the game would be a great way to put Roosevelt away early and rest up some starters in preparation for next weeks battle with Austin Westlake.
1:55 PM This is one of the bigger O Lines we've faced this year on D. The Roosevelt offense can be electric at times. They average over 240 across the front five.
2:13 PM Good points Grant. We need this size OL with what we will see next week without a doubt.
2:28 PM Another perfect night for Rattler football. Reagan will kick to start the game.

3:41 PM Halftime....Grant, TR really feels the loss of Bryson Carroll on offense. Without him, they lose 70% of their yardage. Our D has played well, again. Big week next week, Let's hope after a 21-pt lead in 1st half, we get some players rested.
