High School Football: Rattlers enter district with clean slate

Daily Record Sports

Demarcus Hall doesn’t like that No. 2 ranking next to San Marcos’ name.

Inside the pages of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football yearly high school preview, the Rattlers were picked to finish second in District 14-6A, only behind Austin Bowie. Hall, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound junior cornerback, calls the second-place prediction motivational.

College Football: Bobcats remember last year's loss to Georgia State

Sports Editor

There’s a lot from last season worth forgetting.

Texas State’s injury plague? That’s worth forgetting.

Going 3-9 after buying into the hype that 2015 was supposed to be the Bobcats’ destined breakout season? That’s definitely forgetting.

Getting embarrassed by Georgia State at home, 41-19? Actually, Texas State hasn’t forgotten that.

San Marcos (2-3, 0-0 14-6A) returns to action after a bye week with its first district game of the season tonight at 7:30 p.m. against Austin Akins (2-3, 0-0).

The Daily Record talked to Akins head coach Humberto Garza to preview tonight’s game.

The Eagles enter the game on a three-game losing streaking, including a 42-20 loss to Canyon Lake on Sept. 29.  Garza discussed where his team is at this season and more in a Q&A with the Record.


College Football: No days off for Texas State

Sports Editor
Sometimes a day off isn’t really a day off.

The air around the south endzone complex during Texas State’s scheduled “day off” — Monday — was a little too calm. Sure, the Bobcats don’t practice due to the NCAA’s 20-hour limit on physical activity, but to that doesn’t necessarily mean there’s nothing to be done.

Head coach Everett Withers’ word of the week to his team was, “ownership,” and during his Tuesday media press conference, the 53-year-old said that’s something his team can get better with.
