On Friday the varsity football team took to the field for one last time in Ranger Stadium for the 2018 season, as the Rangers dominated district opponent San Marcos in 58-14 blowout win on senior night.

The team stomped all over the Rattlers, with scores coming from special teams and offense. The team’s defense had their biggest stops of the season, as junior Defensive Tackle Trey Witcher finished the night with three solo sacks. Senior quarterback Levi Williams lead the team in both rushing and passing yards, as senior┬áreceiver Chris Rivera played a crucial role with a netted average of 42.5 yards per catch. Leading to the team having a deadly passing attack over a weak Rattler secondary.

The team started off red hot during their senior night performance, with senior safety Ethan Sill returning the opening kickoff for a 87 yard touchdown. This would not be the only touchdown the Rangers special teams demonstrated as they scored once more after a disruptive Ranger defense caused a safety on the Rattlers. The following seconds ended with another kick return touchdown by the Rangers, making San Marcos looking at each other in awe. This closed out the first quarter with a 15-0 lead for the Rangers.

The second quarter was all defense for the team, as San Marcos was unable to get anything rolling until the very end of the second quarter to put points on the board. Thew Rangers had a total of five sacks in the second quarter alone, creating havoc for the Rattler offense and their promising young quarterback overwhelmed. The team scored a few times more before the end of the first half as they lead with a 30-7 lead.

Following a crushing first half, the football team continued their powerful stance and piled on their scores. The results were the same for the team as they practically bullied the San Marcos Rattlers into a 54-14 win. The Rangers look to continue their motive next week as they battle the New Braunfels Unicorn in hopes of a playoff birth. The game will be at 7:30 p.m. in Unicorn Stadium for the last game of the teams regular season.
