For the first time since 2007 San Marcos Academy (SMA) is fielding a junior varsity (JV) football team thanks to increased enrollment and athletic participation. The SMA JV took the field against the Lockhart Lions in a scrimmage last week.

The event was a learning opportunity for both teams but the game/half scrimmage was scoreless.

SMA JV quarterback  Sam Smith also managed to get in some playing time with the SMA varsity squad for its opening game versus Medina on Aug. 27.  Smith is a freshman from San Marcos.

The SMA JV Bears played their first game Thursday night at Lockhart.
