Team Preview: Navasota Rattler

Head Coach: Casey Dacus

2021 Results: 5-6

Returning Starters: 6 offense, 6 defense

The Rattlers will need to replace graduated QB Jamar Jesse and there are two primary candidates in Hudson Miner and Javen Jesse.

The strength of the Rattlers may well be the running game with junior RB Jamal Thomas (who started late in the season last year) and three OL (Drew Chaves, Douglass Franklin and Matthew Sosa) returning.

The Rattlers should be led on defense by LBs Frederick Powell, Nick Castaneda and LB Chris Thompson along with DL Jayden Shepherd.

Coach Dacus likes the way his team is progressing. “We feel really good about where we’re at right now. We’ve kind of been gradually getting better and better and better and we’ve got some really good young classes that are fixing to move into a position where they can really help us.”

The Rattlers will need to settle on a QB. “And so the first question we’re gonna have to answer is who’s gonna be in that role (QB) moving forward for us and right now we’ve got a couple of candidates.”

The Rattlers move to district 12 of 4A Division 1 where they join El Campo, Stafford, Brazosport, Iowa Colony, Needville and Bay City.
