High School Football: Rattler defense ready to take the next step

Traditionally San Marcos has been undersized.

During the early-to-mid 2000s under former head coach Bruce Bush, the Rattlers were known for being the smaller grind-it-out team people feared and used their lack of size to their advantage.

In its fifth season under current head coach Mark Soto, San Marcos has the right amount of size and speed at their disposal just in time for the jump to Class 6A—specifically on defense.

College Football: State starts full pads practice today

There’s not much to take away from the first week of fall practice.

Aside from depth chart projections and skeleton drills, the first week isn’t really for in-depth analysis for the coaches.

Especially when you consider the fact that Texas State hasn’t been in full pads until today. There’s only so much one could take away from watching players line up in just helmets or helmets and shoulder pads from an evaluation standpoint.

Kat Conner is back doing what she loves.

Following the conclusion of Tuesday evening’s two-a-day session, the head coach expressed how it felt to back on the pitch of Bobcat Soccer Complex for the fall season.

“It’s awesome to be back to be honest, it’s wonderful,” Conner said after missing the 2015 season due to a bout with ovarian cancer. “It’s what I love. I grew up playing this sport and coached it for over 25 years so it’s great to be back and I’m thankful I’ve been given the gift to come back.”

Outdoors: Good to be back fishing stateside

One of the delights that I missed most while in Africa for two months this summer was fishing the bays and flats near Aransas Pass.  

I can get by without doing much bass fishing on hot inland lakes, but I love the coastal bay fishing. I missed zipping across skinny water in my speedy skiff.  I missed the salt spray on my lips.  I missed the squawking seagulls.  I missed the beauty of the pink Rosetta spoonbills.  I missed tailing redfish.
