Progress Times photo by Luciano GuerraThe Mission Eagles will be taking the field at Tom Landry Stadium tonight for a game that they may already have won prior to the opening kick-off. How is this possible? Their opponent is Edcouch-Elsa, who must forfeit all their football games this season, due to of alleged violations of the UIL's new eight hours-a-week practice rule.

Facing the UIL’s so called “death penalty,” Edcouch-Elsa has since filed an appeal, but the decision on the appeal may not be known prior to the start of tonight’s game. As a result, the Eagles could take the field tonight not knowing if the final score will matter.

Last year the Rattlers gave up the district crown they won two years ago. They want it back. That’s one of the main objectives of the tough schedule that Sharyland cross country head coach Joe González has put together.

“The season was created as a tough season, and as a hard schedule,” said González. “We’ve been traveling a lot this year, from the Rio Grande Valley Classic to the UTSA Invitational. This week we travel to Corpus Christi. It’s been real tough and we haven’t had one easy meet.”
