Head Coach: Bobby Sanders
2016-2017 Postseason: Reached Bi-District Round; Lost to Fort Bend Travis

Outside of Cy Falls, the next best returning team in the Houston area may be Katy Tompkins. It would be hard pressed to find a team that returns four players who averaged double digits in points a year ago. A first-round exit from the playoffs last season has fueled the Falcons this offseason. Tompkins returns top scorers Jamal Bieniemy (15 ppg, 5 apg) and Kristian Sjolund (10 ppg, 5 rpg). Bieniemy is verbally committed to Oklahoma, while Sjolund has chosen Georgia Tech. The two are threats to score anywhere on the court. Other key returners include C.J. Washington (11 ppg, 4 rpg), Emmanuel White (9 ppg, 6 rpg – Texas State pledge), Jackson Sanders and Drake Dusek. Eden Holt moves in from FB Austin and will be a big addition. Falcons’ coach Bobby Sanders (6th – 55-42, 16th overall – 322-174) believes developing character in a person is key to them becoming the players they want to be.
