The Rattlers will host the Conway Christian Eagles on Friday, October, 30. “We will prepare for our game against Conway Christian like any other game. This game is just as important as any this season. They have a lot of really solid athletes on the field. Their running back has put up some good numbers this year so we’ll work hard on stopping him. He’s a good athlete that can make people miss in space.”
