JV Purple claims victory versus Waco 42-27

The Junior Varsity Purple team claimed a home win versus Waco 42-27 on the campus at San Marcos High School. Offensive High Lights for the team was Christian Cogdill who had two touchdowns and a key 70-yard run and a 30-yard TD run to pace the Purple Junior Varsity Rattlers.

Not to be underdone Manuel Saldana would add two touchdowns of his own with his own brand of inside running. Brian Martinez added a 2-yard touchdown run for a score.

J.D. Shearer grabbed a 30-yard reception from Payton Pringle and the great pass protection from the offensive line led to this score. Junior Varsity Purple Head Coach Jason Pape added,”Pringle did a great job leading the team and showed he can be a great team leader.

On Special Teams, Andrew was six for six on PAT’s and played a good defensive game.

Offensive Line Standouts for the team were also Troy Williams and Matt Bolanos.

The defense was emotionally sparked by Matt Campos’s 10-yard tackle for the loss on the first defensive play of the second half to jump start the teams drive for victory. Anthony (Bam) Ramirez blocked a punt and Kash Seward recovered the ball for the TD for the major turning point in a close game versus the Lions. Key sacks by Robert Spears and Kash Seward contributed in the big win.

Pape added,”Our kids played well and we showed a lot for it being week one of the season.”
