Hear that?

That was the sound of football pads crunching.

After five days of practicing in shorts, the San Marcos Rattler football team finally suited up in full pads Friday. The pad clashing will continue Saturday when the Rattlers compete in an intrasquad, on-campus scrimmage.

San Marcos head coach Mark Soto expects game-like competitiveness.
