The Bobcats were among 50 football teams picked for the Tour of Champions, following their state championship and MaxPreps No. 25 national ranking.
“It’s quite an honor just to be mentioned,” Pustejovsky said. “Our community and all of our support groups…were tremendous throughout the year and escalated the farther we went. It was a good thing for our community and all of Cy-Fair.”
The ceremony also gave the football team – players and coaches – one more chance to be together. Pustejovsky thanked both the players and coaching staff for the work they put in to accomplish the historic state championship.
“Our seniors are kind of separated from us now,” he said. “But it’s nice to get them all back together and we’ll do it again when we do our awards ceremony and our ring presentation.”
