HOUSTON - Once Braden Hay reached the end of the handshake line, the senior safety turned back in the direction of the Katy Taylor fans inside NRG Stadium.
The senior safety broke into a jog, holding his white helmet by the facemask in his left hand, while with his right he held up four fingers signifying the number round that the Mustangs were bound for.
A 35-14 victory over Humble on Saturday night secured for the first time in program history Katy Taylor's place amongst the final eight Class 6A Division II football teams in Texas left playing heading into December next week.
What an impressive incoming class of juniors in the city of Houston.
Recent Texas A&M-commit Shadrach Banks headlines this group and for good reason. The incoming junior is built like a college and even pro receiver. Banks went off during the playoffs last year and became a coverage nightmare for teams. At the same time he became the go-to target for Dematrius Davis.
Tunmise Adeleye is one of the highest ranked defensive tackles in the country and for good reason. He will be a force to be reckoned with.
This is a loaded class and it will be awesome to watch what they can do this season
