HUMBLE - In the past three weeks, Crosby has been far from the favorite.
Playing the role of the underdog, the Cougars - which are in the midst of their deepest playoff run since 2014 - have knocked off in consecutive weeks previously undefeated and Top 5-ranked Class 5A teams in Texas to advance to the Class 5A Division II State Semifinals.
On Friday, after beating No. 5 Texas High (62-42) and No. 4 Huntsville (32-29/OT), Crosby stared down No. 3 Fort Bend Marshall, a program that has played for a state championship each of the last two seasons.
Powered by Reggie Branch's four-touchdown performance, a 28-point fourth quarter and timely defensive stands, Crosby upended Fort Bend Marshall 37-28 at Humble ISD's Turner Stadium to advance to the State Semifinals.
Fort Bend Marshall is once again making a deep playoff run.
On VYPE's newest product - VYPE Locker Talk Live, which airs every Monday on VYPE Texas' YouTube page starting at Noon - host Joshua Koch and Matt Malatesta were joined this week by Fort Bend Marshall coach James Marshall. The guys talked to him about their current playoff run, their tough defense, and explosive offense. They also previewed their State Quarterfinal match with Crosby. Check out the full interview below.
