The Cy-Fair Bobcats went through a lot of growing pains last season. They barely made the playoffs; needing a pair of 4th quarter comebacks in their final 2 games to qualify. Yet, it was somehow fitting. Few players had seen significant playing time at the Varsity level and not much was expected. They pulled together and finished 4th in district 17-5A. As they say, BFND, Bobcat fight never dies.

Now, they’re all grown up. Last year’s experience makes this year’s edition of the Bobcats one of the deepest in the area. It starts with a two-headed monster running game. Running backs Dillon Birden and Jacorey Aleem are speedy, versatile backs capable of scoring from anywhere on the field. The offensive line, while smaller than your average front 5, is also one of the faster and more athletic groups.

Defensively, the line is as good as any in the city. Brady Wright and Ross Donnelly form a powerful combination that will create all kinds of problems for opposing offenses. Davis Nelson is a solid tackler and hard worker at linebacker, while Brandon Richmond is an exciting talent at safety.

Coach Ed Pustejovsky is not ready to say his team will be a state title contender, only that they will take it one game at a time and see where they’ll end up. That makes sense. Winning 17-5A is no easy task. Each season, quality teams miss the playoffs from the loaded 10 team division. Winning it means they’ll be battle tested once postseason play begins. It’s unwise to count them out under any circumstances, because Bobcat fight never dies.

Cy-Fair is on the Road to State!
