Inside the Program: John Cooper School Girls Basketball
By Bradley Collier
On the eve of the UIL 5A and 6A State Championships the stage is set. Powerhouse and Cinderella football programs will be under the bright lights of AT&T Stadium this weekend. VYPE is here to give their predictions of who will be crowded State Champs.
Don't forget to tune into the VYPE YouTube page for the UIL State Championship Watch Along all weekend.
When a program hasn't played for a state championship in 60 years, there is a reason to be excited.
The Crosby community came out in droves on Thursday to send its football team up to Arlington in style with a sendoff that they will never forget.
Behind a full police and firetruck escort down FM 2100, riding in three charter buses the Cougars' football team watched as hundreds of parents lined the road with signs, bells and pompoms to cheer on their hometown team.
"It means a lot," Raymond Blanchard, a Crosby High School teacher who helped organize the sendoff, said. "You saw everybody happy and this community always comes together. It means a lot to support the students. We have great students here at Crosby. I got a little emotional recording watching everybody.
"There's no place like this. I just love it. It's the perfect place for me. I just love Crosby."
VYPE Media's Joshua Koch was on hand for the sendoff. Check out the video from the event.
With the UIL football state championships looming this week, that means it's awards season.
The 41st Annual UIL High School Awards Dinner is scheduled for 7 p.m., January, 20th at the Bayou City Event Center.
