Notes:
* Motto -- Home of Champions
* When Katy fell to 0-2 in 2008 this was the first time since 1984
* The last time the Tigers lost in the second round of the playoffs was a 2001 to Madison and then-quarterback Vince Young

  • Mike Says: The Tigers are set to make another run at the Championship this year. Their defense was outstanding last year giving up less than 100 total points. They may not be that good this year but they will still be one of the best in the state. Their offense will be as good as ever. Rodney Anderson only a Sophomore took over last year and showed that he could be one of the best. Look for them to go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season and win the district title. Their non-district match-up against The Woodlands will be fun to watch. They should be a Division II playoff team and will be tough to knock off. I am hoping for another match-up vs. La Porte in the playoffs which would be another classic.
  • Chris Says: What can you say about Katy?  It is usually a safe bet to say they are going to win district and do well in the playoffs.  Heck, it is usually a safe bet to say they will be in the hunt for a state title - they are that good.  La Porte derailed their title run last season, but they won't look past them again.  Expect Coach Gary Joseph's team to be ready to play football and play it well.  I wouldn't be surprised to see the Tigers in a state championship game again this season.
