Katy High School football fans wear red, love Coach Joseph, and know they belong to a special Tigers family. Throughout the history of this stellar program, the family tree has grown, and this year’s varsity team features siblings making a name for themselves and continuing a legacy.

The Katy High School Tigers football team heads to Arlington Saturday, January 16 for the 6A Division II State Championships. They face the Cedar Hill Longhorns in AT&T Stadium at 1 p.m. Katy, ranked 19th nationally in the MaxPreps Top 25, continues its journey on the road to nine state championships.

Last week, the Tigers crushed Hays (Buda, TX) 63-7 at Baylor University's McLane Stadium in Waco. The semi-finals victory lifted them to 13-1 for the season. The team has won their last seven games, showing more confidence and power with each matchup.

All in the Family

The Davis brothers will have family in the stands cheering for them, as well as their parents’ friends from high school and college. The dynamic offensive duo has dominated this season. Jalen, a senior, and Seth, a sophomore, have catapulted the Tigers' running game and put lots of points on the board.

Tigers Head Coach Gary Joseph has had other brothers playing on the team at the same time. He admits that each pair of siblings have been different, but they all have pulled for each other.

When asked about similarities between the Davis brothers, Coach Joseph says, “They complement each other very well. Jalen is more physical while Seth is a little quicker.”
