The 2020 season was unlike any other.
But we got to the finish line back in mid-January with the Class 5A and 6A State Championships at AT&T Stadium.
The lone state champ from Houston came in the form of the Katy Tigers, winning the Class 6A Division II State Championship over Cedar Hill. The Crosby Cougars were the other team to make it to the state title game for the first time in 60 years.
So, who were the best of the best in H-Town in 2020?
