School And Community Celebrate With Parade And Rally

The Cy-Fair High School football team was honored and celebrated for winning the 2017 Class 6A Division II state championship as the school, alumni and community members came together for a parade on Jan. 12 and rally that followed at the high school football field.

The Bobcats captured the state title with their 51-35 win over Waco Midway on Dec. 23 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. Cy-Fair was the third football program in CFISD history to reach a state championship game, but is the first in the district to win it all.

Cy-Fair fans and community members lined Cypress North Houston Road, where the parade began near the high school baseball field. Following a turn at Telge Road, hundreds of students and staff from nearby Lamkin Elementary School and Arnold Middle School cheered on the parade as well. Three vehicles from the Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department carried the football team, while coaches, student trainers and other program personnel rode in other vehicles.

The Cy-Fair Air Force JROTC, marching band, Brigade drill team and cheerleaders also took part in the parade. Cy-Fair Head Football Coach Ed Pustejovsky and his wife Marianne served as the parade’s grand marshals.

“It was a time to be able to bring our staff, our students, our alumni and our community together to savor the moment and celebrate this historical event,” said Cy-Fair Principal Ana Martin. “I’m still processing it all and what it means to Cy-Fair High School and what it means to Cy-Fair ISD. We’re just so proud of the hard work of our football team, our coaches and our staff.”

A rally at the Cy-Fair football stadium followed, as fans filled the stands and cheered throughout the ceremony.

In addition to congratulatory speeches by the high school administration, Pustejovsky offered thanks to not only his coaches and players, but the community in helping the Bobcats win the championship. Each member of the football team, film crew and athletic training staff was then introduced.

Ray Zepeda, CFISD director of athletics, closed the rally by presenting the state championship trophy to the Bobcats with the crowd giving a raucous ovation.

“It’s good recognition for our players because they did accomplish something that very few people get to do,” Pustejosky said. “I’m very proud of them.”
