Spartan of the Week - Popi Marquez

“Popi Marquez is this week’s Spartan of the Week for her dedicated service producing media viewed by thousands on numerous webcasts for the past 3 years. Starting as a Sophomore, Popi was our 1st sideline reporter which required her to conduct research for prospective interviews, capture and edit media, and handle “live” segments as they “popped” up. Several of her interviews included a pregame interview with Coach Jeff Saturday, an NFL Pro Bowl center, ESPN sports analyst, and then coach of the Hebron Christian Lions. Popi has also conducted several interviews with ACAD football and basketball coaches, as well as numerous alumni like Houston Gaines ’13, Kaleb Bryant ’16, Ned McGregor ’11, and Rahul Singh ’07.  She’s currently serving as co-president of the Media Production club and is hoping to pursue a degree in broadcast journalism. Go Spartans! Mike Callinan, Webcast
