For awhile it looked like the Rattlers football season would have been better off had it finished a couple of weeks ago, but lo and behold in front of the homecoming crowd, the home fans had plenty to cheer for this past weekend as the Rattlers literally held on at the end for a 24-21 victory.
The ingredients for the success was freshman quarterback Eddie Battle and senior wide out Willie Hayward. A surprise duo perhaps, but for the Rattlers to turn their former losing streak into a winning streak, they'll need plenty more Hayward acrobatics.
"Our seniors. The last game they'll play at Bragg Stadium had a tremendous performance from the group with Willie Hayward. Probably one of the better games he's played since I've been here," says Head Rattler Rubin Carter.
