Jan. 30, 2020—The Cypress Falls and Cypress Creek high school football teams placed second and third, respectively, among Class 6A schools for the Touchdown Club of Houston’s Sportsmanship Award.

Cypress Falls finished second in the voting, which is conducted by the Texas Association of Sports Officials (TASO) Houston football chapter. Cypress Creek placed third behind the Golden Eagles and first-place Alief Elsik High School.

The Golden Eagles placed second among 15 Class 6A teams.

The finalists were chosen based on six criteria:

  • actions of the football team;
  • actions of the coaches;
  • actions of the support groups at games, including parents, band and other auxiliary groups;
  • respect of the American flag;
  • a score based on the number of personal fouls incurred during games; and
  • a score based on the number of unsportsmanlike conduct fouls.

Cypress Park was a finalist for the second consecutive year, while CFISD had three finalists in back-to-back years. That included Cypress Springs High School, last year’s Class 6A winner.

“This was a proud day for the CFISD athletic department,” said Ray Zepeda, CFISD director of athletics. “To have Cy Creek, Cy Falls and Cy Park all be honored as finalists out of all the Class 6A greater Houston area schools is an outstanding accomplishment. We are proud of all three schools and are especially happy to see Cy Creek and Cy Falls garner top honors at the Houston Touchdown Club’s event out of the fifteen finalists. This award validates and celebrates the commitment of all to honor our focus on ‘Game Day the Right Way!’”
