San Marcos and San Antonio Holmes were supposed to face off in 2020. But due to rescheduling issues cause by the COVID-19 pandemic, the two teams had to cancel the matchup.
The longtime preseason scrimmage partners will finally meet during the regular season this year. The Huskies saw mild improvement last season, earning a 20-13 overtime win over San Antonio Jay — the team’s first victory since the 2018 season. It ended up being Holmes’ only win, as it finished the year 1-8 overall and 1-7 in District 29-6A play.
The offense returns one of its top playmakers in Christopher Medelez. The senior quarterback led the team throwing for 359 passing yards and two touchdowns, but will need to clean up his efficiency after completing just 33% of his passes and giving up five interceptions. He also finished second on the team with 304 rushing yards on 73 carries, a 4.2-yard average, and crossed the goal line four times.
He’ll be without most of his top weapons from last year, though. No running back or wide receiver returning produced more than 100 yards for Holmes or reached the end zone in 2020.
The Huskies might deal with some inexperience on defense, too, losing their top two tacklers from a year ago. But their secondary does feature a pair of ballhawks who each secured interceptions last season in seniors Jake Jackson and Nathan Arriaga.
San Marcos will head to San Antonio to square off with Holmes on Sept. 4 at 7 p.m.
