It was friend versus friend and teammate versus teammate as the Sharyland Rattlers football team took the field against the Sharyland Rattlers last Thursday evening in the annual Red/White spring football game. As half of Coach Ron Adame’s players donned red jerseys and half donned white, the game capped off four weeks of spring practice meant to give Adame and his staff a preview of what’s to come in what will be the Rattlers’ final season before the split which will take place when Pioneer High School opens its doors in the fall of 2014.
“We’ve had four weeks of spring ball,” explained Adame. “The fourth week we divided the kids up as evenly as we could. Our position coaches split their boys up as evenly as possible and we continued practicing in the morning, but we’d game plan for this game in the afternoons.”
“It was more of a controlled situation today and even though this was as close to a game as possible without the special teams we wanted to see how the kids would respond. Some of the boys went on both sides of the ball so this game allowed that opportunity to take place,” Adame said.
