San Marcos has four goals entering the playoffs: No. 1 win the first game, No. 2 practice on Thanksgiving, No. 3 play in December and No. 4 win the state championship. 

“If you can hit those four goals, if you can stay in stride and hit each goal, you will be playing at four o’clock on December 17th at Cowboy Stadium,” head coach Mark Soto said. 

San Marcos (6-4, 4-1 14-6A) can accomplish its first goal when it plays Round Rock Stony Point (3-7, 2-4 13-6A) tonight in the bi-district round of the UIL 6A Division II playoffs.

Luis Hernandez signed with Grayson College on Tuesday in front of a small crowd of his family, friends and coaches. 

Hernandez, a 17-year-old senior at San Marcos High School, will continue his baseball career with the Vikings, where he’ll pitch and play center field.

“It’s an accomplishment,” Hernandez said. “It’s the start of something new. It’s just the beginning. It’s a special thing. It’s what every kid wishes for to extend their baseball career and education. It wasn’t easy, though, but it means a lot.”

Coach Speak: Stony Point

San Marcos (6-4, 4-1 14-6A) is preparing for its bi-district playoff game against Round Rock Stony Point (3-7, 2-4 13-6A) on Friday. 

Head coach Mark Soto said they have to reset their thinking as the Rattlers prepare for the playoffs. 

“When you get into the playoffs, you got to understand that everybody steps it up a notch,” Soto said. “We had the focus (Monday) morning because we were talking about it and we came after school, they had been in school all day, they kind of lost their focus and didn’t have the best practice.”

Seniority isn’t weighted above talent at Texas State.

It was a lesson head coach Everett Withers learned as defensive coordinator at Ohio State in 2013. The Buckeyes were No. 2 in the nation and poised to take on top-ranked Florida State in the final BCS National Championship. They just had to knock off one-loss Michigan State in the Big Ten Championship game. All season Withers and head coach Urban Meyer started a senior combo at safety in Corey Brown and C.J. Barnett.
