Blitz Preview: Rockport-Fulton Pirates

The Pirates have a brutal non-district schedule to get them ready for an equally tough district slate in a new division.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Rockport-Fulton Pirates will largely be hitting the reset button on their roster and also in district play with moving up a division.

The Pirates have gone to 4A-Division I and are trading in a Coastal Bend-heavy district schedule for one that's more San Antonio area-based to go along with Beeville and Port Lavaca.

Rockport-Fulton must fill a huge hole left by 16 graduating seniors, but they do have a returning backfield duo of quarterback Ace Seibert and running back Devin Phillips.

The duo says it'll be important to build chemistry with the new guys in the early non-district schedule against some tough teams like Miller, Sinton and Flour Bluff.

Another show and another sights and sounds! Rockport-Fulton was taking advantage of full contact today. Shot with my iPhone since the humidity was playing hell with my camera. But better than nothing! The Pirates' preview comes tonight at 10 PM. #3SportsBlitz Sports Blitz - KIII 3 News KIII 3 News Ashley Gonzalez
