The San Marcos Rattlers are a shining example of what hard work produces: good things.
Head coach Mark Soto and his staff have conditioned the Rattlers since the end of last season. Weight room sessions, boot camp and Competitive 101 are just a few reason San Marcos was the better team Friday night.
SMHS pushed the Dripping Springs Tigers to their physical limits and came out the other side with a 35-22 win — its first home/season-opening victory since 2005.
Both offense and defense had its moments of glory and worked together, creating turnovers which led to points.
