In both 2012 and 2013, Sharyland won the District 30-5A football championship by going undefeated and outscoring their opponents by more than four to one.
In 2012 and 2013, Sharyland opened the playoffs with a relatively easy bi-district win against Laredo United in Laredo.
In 2012, Sharyland played the Harlingen Cardinals in the area round of the playoffs during a rainstorm and won, 42-2. In 2013, the Rattlers defeated the Harlingen Cardinals in the area round, 23-20.
Now, Sharyland faces the same San Antonio Madison team at the same stadium – Corpus Christi’s Buccaneer Stadium – in the regional round of the state playoffs. But this time Sharyland head coach Ron Adame is hoping for a different outcome in today’s 2 p.m. matchup against the Madison Mavericks. Last year, the Mavericks handed Adame the only loss of his head coaching career and ended the Rattlers’ otherwise perfect season by a final score of 40-13.
