With the heavy rains changing the plans for most of all the West Central Football League teams, Magazine knew where they were headed already. The destination wasn’t important nor was the teams they were going to face off against. The Little League Rattlers were headed to prove a point.
The Magazine Little League Rattlers took a drive to Mansfield Saturday, August 24, to prove that last year’s success wasn’t a “one and done”. Magazines roster grew in numbers since last year and the rise in numbers makes for one dangerous snake pit for any opponent. The Rattlers took on every team at the Jamboree and showed that both of their teams are contenders for the WCFL Championship.
Magazine 3rd and 4th Grade Coach, Cody Shelton said “I believe we came out and played very well against some very good teams. We still have some work to do but we should have a great season this year.”
Magazines Head Football Coach and WCFL President, Doug Powell said “I was pleased with the way our teams played and competed Saturday. I saw a lot of evenly matched competition out there and our players were right in the mix. It was a great day for teams who haven’t had a lot of practice due to the heat to get out and run a lot of plays. I am very excited to see the growth in our program. The league as a whole was a great thing to watch Saturday. You could see all of the teams have grown since last year and the league is quite evenly matched across the board. I see some very entertaining football for our communities to watch this season.”
Magazines Little League is poised for the top this season due to a great backing from their coaches and community. Numbers don’t lie and Magazine is going to be a force to be reckoned with. The Little League Rattlers have a week left of practice to work out some kinks before the WCFL season kicks off. They will host the Lavaca Golden Arrows on Saturday, September 7th.
