The Katy Tigers will officially be without Quarterback Bronson McClelland this year.
The Senior Quarterback, who is 23-3 as a starter, did not play in the team’s practice games or season opener. He was suspended last year for two games when a video clip of him using a racial slur during a game emerged. He had stated that he was working on personal issues but was still with the team a week ago, but just days later he officially withdrew from school.
McClelland threw for 1,700 yards last year and 20 touchdowns. He added 5 rushing touchdowns. He has scholarship offers from Tulsa and Rutgers.
Losing their starting QB is a big loss for Katy and seemed to be a blow to their chances of winning their school’s 9th state title. However, the Tigers have looked good so far, and their offense came alive this past week, scoring 61 points. In week one, they beat Clear Springs, 28-13. This week, they beat Cypress Woods, 66-21. Both games were on the road. They are home verse Katy Seven Lakes this week.
