Cy-Fair was built in 1941, when World War II was just beginning.
For the first time in school history, the Bobcats have punched their ticket to the state championship, taking the Houston-area community by storm
Coach Ed Pustejovsky’s squad went undefeated this season and faces Waco Midway this weekend in the Class 6A, DII state game at AT&T Stadium. We were able to sit down with QB1 Cam Arnold as he prepares for the big game this Saturday.
VYPE: As the countdown to kickoff gets closer, how does your team feel to be heading to the school’s first-ever state championship game?
Arnold: We have gotten close before, but never have been able to make it this far. We just want to finish the job and make our school proud. We are excited that we finally made it this far.
VYPE: When did it all become real?
Arnold: I always expected to go as far as we have this season, but I think the whole team started buying in after the Cy-Spring’s game. We came out a little flat and got down 14-0 in the first half. We got ourselves together during the second half to come back and win. After that we, we beat Cy-Ranch and our confidence grew from there. This is when the team realized we were pretty good.
VYPE: What was it like making history?
Arnold: It’s an awesome feeling, especially with the group of guys we have. We have played together since seventh-grade and have all grown up playing together. It has been really special. Now it’s time to finish it.
VYPE: You committed to Northwestern State, what sold you on that college?
Arnold: The coaching staff is great, and the school provides an awesome atmosphere. I believe I can thrive there as a quarterback. Also, I have family in Louisiana.
VYPE: Cy-Fair has been traditionally run-oriented, what changed this year?
Arnold: I have become more confident in my passing abilities, and the team as a whole trusts each other more. This year, I was able to make more plays and throw the ball.
VYPE: What is the greatest moment of your high school career?
Arnold: Hopefully, the state game will be the greatest moment of my life this far.
