Restricting access to parks can be a tough a job, and enforcing the restriction can be even tougher when the park is surrounded by water.

Ushering in a new football season in Texas with celebratory fireworks is pretty appropriate.

Not literal fireworks of course, but the way San Marcos and East Central lit up the scoreboard last season, it may as well have been engulfed in flames.

More than 1,400 total yards later, the Rattlers emerged with a 59-56 season-opening win.

“I think they’re (East Central) going to come out guns blazing and we are too,” San Marcos head coach Mark Soto said. “It might be the same looking game which is exciting for fans.”

A year after notching San Marcos Academy’s first playoff win in 15 years, the expectations are the same as ever for Coach Les Davis’ team.

Win as many games as possible.

“The same expectations for the last 36 years I’ve been coaching,” Davis said before the Bears face Charlotte High School during their season opener at 7 p.m. tonight. “I expect to win every game we play. Is that realistic? I don’t know. I’m not going to tell the kids that they can’t. As long as we are reaching for the stars, we’ll get pretty high anyway.”

Featured Story: The many sides to Tyler Jones

By JOE VOZZELLI
Sports Editor

He’s an enigma.

Especially for those people who aren’t members of the Texas State football team’s inner circle. The star quarterback who doesn’t seek the spotlight. The first person to take the blame when the Bobcats lose. He won’t claim any credit when they win, though. He’s guarded in front of the media, but comfortable around his teammates. The Stephenville product who once told his head coach that he was ready to take over the starting job at Texas State as a true freshman on a sideline in Lubbock.
