LISTEN NOW - Humble Wildcat football is in the 2019 Texas high school football playoffs.
For the first time since 2010, Humble has punched its ticket to the playoffs and face Kingwood this week for a shot to host the bi-district round of the playoffs in two weeks at Turner Stadium.
VYPE headed out to Wildcat nation to catch up with the playoff bound Wildcats.
HOUSTON – The last time Humble opened a football season 4-0, it was 2006.
Fast forward to 2019, the Wildcats are off to their best start in 13 years, matching that start with a chance to move to 5-0 on Saturday when they face Pasadena Memorial.
"Of course, I'm happy but I'm not satisfied," Humble coach Charles West said. "The bottom line is we have goals and hopefully we can stay healthy and play good football in all three phases. The kids are playing well, the coaches are doing a good job preparing and we're going out there and making plays."
The Wildcats through their opening four games have outscored opponents 236-15.
As impressive as the offensive side of the ball has been, its been the defense that has been standout and amongst the best in Houston giving up just 118 yards per game. The unit has also reeled in a District 22-6A-best four interceptions and recovered four fumbles.
"They're just playing hard," West said. "Kids are making plays. We have a couple of older kids, Tavian Coleman and Aarun Lockett at linebacker that was a sophomore last year and Eric Osegueda. Those three guys right there are anchoring it. They've been in the system for a while and they know what's going on and they're making plays."
