SAN ANTONIO - Let's say you're a high school coach and you've got a new team.

And the team is not just new to you, but new to everybody because it's the first time the school has a varsity football team.

Imagine all of that and you've got Richard Mendoza's life.

Veterans Memorial will take the field for the first time in District 13-5A.

There's no talk about doing better than last year, or finally making it to the playoffs because they don't have a history. Instead, Mendoza is focusing on something else this season.

Game one of the season for the Patriots is on Aug. 31 against Floresville.
