Heading into this season, there was a question of who would step up for Cypress Creek at quarterback.
The answer - senior Julian Uwadia.
Heading into Week 7, Uwadia has guided the Cougars to a 3-3 record winning three-straight games after an 0-3 start. The resurgence of the Cougars put them into the playoff picture.
VYPE caught up with the senior signal-caller for a Q&A session to get the 411.
VYPE: What has this season been like for you?
Uwadia: "This season has been very fun and exciting. It's my last year and I'm trying to make a statement."
VYPE: You are the No. 2 passing QB in the district, what does that mean to you?
Uwadia: "It means a lot but as long as we are winning I don't mind having no yards. I'm just focused on doing whatever I have to do to win."
VYPE: It seems Cy Creek is picking up some steam, does it feel that way on the sidelines and inside that locker room?
Uwadia: "After our first three losses, coach changed the way we do things in every little aspect in our preparation."
VYPE: What has been the biggest key to success for you so far?
Uwadia: "Our biggest key is that we are playing together as a team. At first everyone was worried about themselves, now we came together and just playing our best for the guy next to us. We are playing more as a team."
VYPE: What do you still want to improve on?
Uwadia: "I need to work on my throwing under pressure."
VYPE: Favorite video game?
Uwadia: "Madden 20"
VYPE: Favorite song to get hyped to?
Uwadia: "Slime Mentality, NBA Youngboy"
VYPE: Favorite food?
Uwadia: "My favorite food is Chicken strips, I love Zaxby's."
VYPE: Something people may not know about you?
Uwadia: "Something people may not know is that when I started playing football I played defense end when I was 8."
VYPE: Dream job?
Uwadia: "My dream job is to be a surgeon."
Cy Creek started the season 0-3.
That start didn't derail the Cougars' season like it would to some teams that start winless. Since suffering losses to Klein, Klein Oak and Cy Falls, the Cougars have rattled off two-straight wins.
Victories over Jersey Village (53-9) and Stratford (49-2) have thrust the Cougars back into the playoff picture sitting at 2-1 in District 17-6A with Spring Woods set for Saturday.
Cy Creek's offense enters this week second best in the district at 390.6 yards per game and is just an average of four yards per game behind Cy Falls. Defensively, Cy Creek ranks fifth giving up 289.8 yards per game.
The breakout star has been Julian Uwadia at quarterback. Uwadia has gone 94 of 164 for 1,186 yards and 15 touchdowns with three interceptions. The senior has completed 57 percent of his passes.
