Gary Joseph and his staff pieced together arguably the greatest Katy football season ever, in my opinion.
The Tigers had to change quarterbacks just a few weeks in, replacing a senior with a sophomore. Then had to lean on defense and the running game, while Caleb Koger came along.
Once in the playoffs, behind a stout rushing attack fueled by Jalen and Seth Davis, the Tigers made a run all the way to the UIL Class 6A Division II State Championship game.
In the title game, Katy ran past Cedar Hill to claim the program's ninth state championship in program history and first since 2015. Katy is now just one behind Aledo for most all-time in Texas high school football history by an 11-man program.
For Joseph, this marked title eight and his fifth as the head coach of Katy.
