KATY [January 16, 2021] – It was a highly anticipated return to the state championship for the Katy High School (KHS) Tigers as they faced off against Cedar Hill Longhorns at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, but in the end, the Tigers landed the coveted CHAMPIONSHIP title and will return home once again as STATE CHAMPS!
“I’m proud to see that the students poured out their hearts in their studies and in the sport, and now their hard work has paid off,” said KHS Head Football Coach Gary Joseph, who has now led five of the championships for Katy ISD.
“Today, once again, our Katy ISD students are creating a legacy for future generations,” said Debbie Decker, Executive Director of Athletics. “This Championship is more than just football; it’s a reflection of a district and school community that encourages its students to reach for excellence. With the challenges that we have faced this season due to COVID-19, we are proud of our coaches, parents and students for their support,” added Decker.
Katy High School has won UIL State Championships in 1959, 1997, 2000, 2003, 2007, 2008, 2012, 2015 and now in 2021.
