The excitement was palpable. There was no questioning that this regular season, non-district football game on a dreary Saturday evening in September meant more than most for Katy High.

The Tigers’ emotional 31-28 come-from-behind win over Atascocita at Legacy Stadium was even a sight to behold for the First Lady of Katy football and coach Gary Joseph’s wife, Sheila.

“Wow!” Sheila exclaimed while greeting Joseph with a hug after the game. “Wow. What a game.”

In the long run, what took place for the Tigers could be one of those games they look back upon as a turning point this season. One of those mystical games that people could eventually reminisce about as they stand around at work, buying time around the vending machine, shooting the breeze with fellow friends and colleagues.

The Katy fans who stayed through a 45-minute delay at halftime because of inclement weather will remember the furious comeback from an 21-0 deficit in the first half, 21-6 at the break. They will remember the energy and momentum building even as the Tigers trailed by 14 points with 15 minutes left.

They will remember the ridiculous, workmanlike performance of Tigers running back Deondrick Glass, who blitzed, bullied and buried the Eagles for 372 yards and two touchdowns on 39 carries.

They’ll remember the defense rising to the occasion by allowing a single touchdown in the second half. And they’ll certainly remember senior kicker Kaleb Cue’s 40-yard field goal with 1:18 left that flew through the uprights to award the Tigers the win and stun the Eagles.
