Cy-Fair Bobcats are Crowned State Champions

ARLINGTON — After nearly 80 years football competition, the Cy-Fair Bobcats are state champions!  The Bobcats defeated undefeated Waco Midway, 51-35.

Cy-Fair opened the scoring with a two yard Trenton Kennedy rushing touchdown.  The Bobcats would go on to score 44 of the next 51 points in the ball game.  Midway’s only score in the first half was on a 48-yard pass from Oklahoma commit Tanner Mordecai to Dart Smith.

When asked what winning a state championship meant to him, sophomore defensive back Payton Tally said he couldn’t thank everyone enough, “the corners, the defensive line, the coaching staff, the offensive line.”  Tally went on to talk about how “he grew up around Coach Pustejovsky and understood the shortcomings in the past.”  Tally finished the game with a team-leading 11.5 tackles and three pass breakups.

A few other players shined on the defensive side of the ball, including senior linebacker Jace Bobo who reigned in 8.5 tackles, including 2.5 TFLs and a pass breakup.  Senior Patrick Atkinson, who led the team in total tackles coming into the state game, concluded the game with 6.5 tackles, 2.0 TFLs, and two quarterback hurries.  Kyle Bell wrapped up the championship game with 6.5 tackles, 0.5 TFLs, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and two pass breakups.

The 2017 Cy-Fair Bobcats will go down in history as the first Cy-Fair ISD team to win a state championship and only the third to ever appear in the state title game.  The Bobcats join the 2014 Cypress Ranch Mustangs and the 2006 Cypress Falls Golden Eagles.

Cy-Fair Advances to State Title Game

Dec. 16, 2017 — The Cy-Fair Bobcats are headed to Arlington, Texas to play for the UIL 6A Division II State Championship after defeating the Austin Westlake Chaparrals, 14-6.

The Bobcats made history twice on Saturday at NRG Stadium.  Cy-Fair played its first appearance in the State Semifinals since 1985 when the Bobcats were defeated by the Odessa Permian Panthers.  Second, the Bobcats punched their ticket to their first ever state championship appearance in school history.  Cy-Fair is only the third Cy-Fair ISD school to ever participate in a state championship game.  The 2006 Cypress Falls Eagles and the 2014 Cypress Ranch Mustangs are the other two schools to play in the state title game.

Cy-Fair’s outstanding defense held the Westlake Chaparrals, who average 48 points per game, to only two mid-range field goals.  Westlake’s Nakia Watson, who is committed to play collegiate football at Wisconsin, recorded only 51 rushing yards on the day.  Quarterback Taylor Anderson threw for a season-low 101 yards and no touchdowns.

Trenton Kennedy ran for 81 yards on 23 carries and caught four passes for 22 yards.  Erick Hallett and Ryan Nelub each caught one of Cam Arnold’s two touchdown passes on the day.  Hallett’s touchdown late in the fourth quarter sealed the fate of the Chaparrals.

Cy-Fair linebacker and Air Force commit Patrick Atkinson slated 11 tackles and two sacks to the lead the Bobcat defense.

The Bobcats will play the Waco Midway Panthers on Saturday, December 23 at AT&T Stadium at 7:00 PM.  Midway defeated the Longview Lobos to advance to their second state championship game appearance in their history.

Clinching Scenarios

Week 9 has arrived in the 2017 Texas High School Football Season.  For those of us in the realm of District 17-6A, it’s never too early to begin talking about playoffs.  Since there are only three week of play remaining in the regular season, here are the clinching scenarios for a few teams:

With a Langham Creek win this week vs. Cypress Springs, the Lobos will have seven wins in district play.  The worst Langham Creek can finish in the district play is 7-2.  Langham Creek has wins and holds the tiebreaker over Cypress Creek, Cypress Falls, Cypress Ridge, Cypress Woods, Cypress Lakes, and Cypress Ranch.  Langham Creek has Cypress Springs, Jersey Village, and Cy-Fair remaining on the schedule.


» Langham Creek win (worst possible record is 7-2)
» Cypress Creek loss (Cy Creek will have four losses, lost to LC)
» Cypress Ranch loss (Cy Ranch will have three losses, lost to LC)
» Cypress Woods loss (Cy Woods will have four losses, lost to LC)

Cy-Fair’s road to clinching a playoff berth differs slightly when compared to Langham Creek, even though the two teams have identical records.  With three weeks to play until the first round of playoffs, Cy-Fair still has match ups against Cypress Woods, Cypress Falls, and Langham Creek.  The Bobcats will play three playoff contenders in their three remaining games, including the undefeated Lobos.  Cy-Fair has victories and holds the tiebreaker over Cypress Lakes, Cypress Springs, Cypress Ranch, Jersey Village, Cypress Ridge, and Cypress Creek.


» Cy-Fair win (worst possible record is 7-2)
» Cypress Ranch loss (Cy Ranch will have three losses, lost to Cy-Fair)
» Cypress Creek loss (Cy Creek will have four losses, lost to Cy-Fair)
