San Marcos offensive coordinator Victor Sierra gathered his offense following Wednesday’s practice and preached the importance of responding. 

The Rattlers (1-2, 0-0 14-6A) will try to respond tonight when they take on San Antonio Taft (1-2, 0-0 28-6A) following a 49-35 loss to New Braunfels. 

“Last Friday left a bad taste in our mouth,” Sierra said. “(The players) have had to go out and work hard and get after it, and understand Taft is a quality opponent. We expect another hard fought battle and they need to respond to it.”

High School Football: Meet the Rattlers' scout team

Daily Record Sports

San Marcos assistant coach Ben Yock yells to the scout defense “popsicle, no one has a popsicle yet,” during a hot Wednesday afternoon practice.

A popsicle is simply the reward a defensive scout player receives for sacking the quarterback. While it seems like cheesy reward for making a play, junior Isreal Romero says it does make a difference. 

“(Earning popsicles) actually does (motivate us) because we get something out of it so might as well work for it,” said Romero, who claims he average three popsicles a week.
