Socially Distanced Coaching: FB Hightower reaches third round, despite coach Joseph Sam quarantining
HOUSTON – Joseph Sam wanted to keep his routine as normal as possible.
The Fort Bend Hightower coach the last two weeks on gameday pulled on his black cap with the Hightower logo in the middle and threw on a green quarter-zip pullover even though he wouldn't actually be at the playoff games those nights due to being in close contact with someone with COVID-19.
"I tried to keep my routine as normal as possible, so I got dressed up for the game," Sam said. "I didn't want to change up my routine because I was in the house."
HOUSTON - As the Class 4A State Championships finished up on Friday inside AT&T Stadium, the upper classes of UIL football took their next steps towards the ultimate goal.
The premiere game of the night came between Tompkins and Cy-Fair and the early and often theme to this was defense. The Falcons improved to 10-0 with the 51-28 dominating victory, which included three defensive touchdowns. Colby Huerter had a pair of scoop and scores, while Caleb Komolafe had a pick-six for Tompkins.
