The Laredo Rattlesnakes are ready for their home opener and the only thing on their minds is the word finish. Laredo opened their season with a heartbreaking 62-61 loss at the hands of the Abliene Bombers. In that game the Rattlesnakes scored on their first eight possessions, but would be shutout over the final 24 minutes as the Bombers scored 27 unanswered points.
The 'Snakes say they aren't looking to change anything scheme-wise this week, but will focus on playing a complete game for all four quarters.
"We have a good plan in place, it's just about executing, making all the right plays, all the right reads. We talk about doing our 1/8 because there's eight spots on the field at a time. If everybody does their job, all eight spots get filled up, all eight jobs get done and that's what we plan on doing." (Jerome McGee, Wide Receiver)
"3rd and 4th quarters, we have to finish. We have to put the nail in the coffin and just put them out." (Charles Edmunds, OL/DL Coach)
The Rattlesnakes will be home tomorrow night at the Laredo Energy Arena for their home opener against the San Angelo Bandits. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 pm.
