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.
