August, 30 2010 â€“ Katy, Texas – Â Dave Campbellâ€™s Texas Football is proud to announce that the Katy Tigers football team has been named the Army Strong Team of the Week for Division 5A.
The Katy Tigers were chosen for this honor because of their teamwork, dedication, discipline, personal courage and integrity, values shared by U.S. Army Soldiers.Â Â
â€œThe Tigers, ranked No. 3 in Class 5A, opened the season with a dominating performance against cross town rival Galena Park North Shore, 44-6. Katy’s defense put on an impressive performance, holding No. 9 North Shore to 186 yards while forcing three turnovers,â€ said Adam Hochfelder, general manager of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football. â€œ Katy’s Donovonn Young led the offense with 103 rushing yards on 21 carries.â€
The award will be presented to the team at a time to be determined later this week by a representative of the U.S. Army.
“The U.S. Army is recognizing the student-athletes at Katy High School for demonstrating qualities similar to those exhibited by its Soldiers. Student-athletes and Soldiers share similar values, but more importantly they must be mentally, emotionally and physically strong,” said CPT John Harrell. “We expect to see some of these young men competing at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, the college level, or maybe even professionally in the future.”
