The Cougars are on a roll. They beat Katy for the first time in 2008 and won the district. They did lose to Katy by 1 point in 2009 but they made it all the way to the division I semifinals. This team in 2010 may be the best one yet. They will be tough on offense led by superstar RB K.C. Nlemchi and the defense will hold its own with a couple of transfers and a solid group of returning starters. The only thing to keep the Cinco Ranch from a 10-0 regular season is their tough schedule. Not only do they end the season against Katy, they will open against Klein Forest and then take on Clear Springs in week #3. This is going to be a great season for the Cougars as they should make it 3 years in a row to get 11+ wins in a season. Another trip to the semifinals would not surprise anyone.
