After a disappointing season opener, the Florida A&M University Rattlers keep their eyes on the prize as they prepare to face Coastal Carolina University. 

The Rattlers' most recent face off against Coastal Carolina resulted in a 45 point loss. The Chanticleers won the season opener 38-14 against the Lamar Raiders. 

Last season the Rattlers finish 1-10 (1-7 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference). Tevin Spells, transferred fourth-year running back, believes that the team's focus should be on the current season.

"Last season is in the past," Spells said. "I believe if we just keep our focus on this season then we can be the MEAC champs." 

FAMU students still show support for their team. Third-year business administration student Kiera Joiner feels the Rattlers will have a good turn out this season. 

"Despite the UM--University of Miami--upset, I still feel the team will do much better than last season," Joiner said. "This is more of a reconstructive year. They've made a lot of changes but I feel they might be for the better."

FAMU alumnus and local Tallahassee rapper Tillman Lewis, also known as Teejay The Artist, talks about how he'll never give up on his team.

"FAMU has had it's ups and downs but one thing I known is that I'll never give up on them," Lewis says. "I hope Coastal Carolina is ready for the Rattlers' strike."

The Rattlers will be facing Coastal Carolina Saturday in Conway, South Carolina. The game will kick off at 7 p.m.
