Days before they participate in a groundbreaking game, the Sharyland Pioneer Diamondbacks received a message from the city of McAllen wishing them good luck.
On Wednesday, the city released a video where McAllen City Commissioners Omar Quintanilla, District 3 and Joaquin “J.J.” Zamora, District 2, wish the 2020 Sharyland Pioneer H.S. Diamondbacks football team good luck in their upcoming playoff game, on behalf of the McAllen Mayor & City Commission and all residents of McAllen.
The 30-second video was released the same week the Sharyland Pioneer Diamondbacks football team is set to face the Liberty Hill Panthers this coming Saturday at Heroes Stadium in San Antonio.
This game is the fourth round of the Class 5A Div. II state playoffs and the deepest playoff run by any Sharyland ISD football team in history.
