The varsity football team played their fifth and final round in the playoffs last Friday at San Antonio Dub Ferris Stadium. The Wildcats lost to Missouri City’s Fort Bend Marshall by two points with a score of 19-17.

The Wildcats were not expected to make it this far in the season, but the team worked hard to get into the playoffs. Assistant Coach Rodney Acosta saw a lot of passion in this year’s football team which has helped them advance.

“I love how a lot of people weren’t expecting this bunch to come as far as they came,” he said. “We’ve exceeded those expectations. The kids have worked hard.”

Senior Dylan Filla said Round 5 was a tough game and he feels disappointed that the Wildcats didn’t make it to State.

“All of us worked all season long to prove people wrong, and then we lost,” Filla said.

But the team didn’t go home empty handed. They all made memories to be treasured for a lifetime.

“We are all very close, like one big family of brothers,” he said. “Some of us have played together since middle school and we have been working to go to state our entire football career.

Filla, like most boys, has not only learned how to play football but he has learned important life lessons.

“Anything can be achieved,” he said. “Don’t let what people say get to you.”

Senior linebacker Matt Castro believes football has changed him forever.

“It has impacted me by molding me into a better person,” he said. “It taught me to keep working and striving and those are skills I wouldn’t know if I wasn’t in football”.
