Katy reaches 6A Division II regional final after drubbing Dawson

At the time, Katy football coach Gary Joseph said his team, especially the offensive line, had some growing up to do.

The Tigers were walking off the field at Woodforest Bank Stadium in September, heading to the locker room as The Woodlands players and fans were celebrating a decisive 21-point victory that sent shock waves across the state.

Joseph, who has led Katy to three state championships in 10 years, was right. Katy's staple is its powerful running game, but the offensive line had to replace four graduated seniors from from last season.
