Rockport-Fulton Advances to 7 on 7 State Tournament

CORPUS CHRISTI - Football season is right around the corner - we are just two months away from two-a-days kicking off. Meanwhile, we got a little taste of Friday Night Fever on a Saturday afternoon in June.

The Rockport-Fulton Pirates proved that they're a team to keep an eye out for in the fall. The Pirates won the 7 on 7 tournament in Weslaco on Saturday afternoon, punching their ticket to the State Tournament in College Station on July 10th and 11th.

The Pirates breezed through pool play with a 3-0 record, and then defeated Monte Alto 28-26 in the championship game. The Pirates have a new head Coach in Jay Siebert, and they're excited about the upcoming season.

"We're excited because we really didn't know about this and once we heard about it it was one of the goals that we worked for and we accomplished it so we're pretty proud of each other," quarterback Anthony Resendez said. "It gets our name out there because a lot of people might not think much of us, and now that they hear our name coming around it's going to be different when it comes fall."
