November 4, 2022- GPISD Stadium – Head Coach Jon Kay’s Mustangs captured the District 21 – 6A – Div. 1 Region 3 title with an unblemished 10 – 0 record against Kingwood (56 – 7).

Kay and his coaching staff after the season started have had some significant challenges.

Last year’s state championship star quarterback (QB) Kaleb Bailey had a season- ending injury after 4 games this season. That forced Kay to switch his star receiver David Amador into playing quarterback. Amador heads into the 6 game state championship playoffs with only four starts at QB.

MUSTANGS REMAIN UNDEFEATED, DOWN UNBEATEN EAGLES

North Shore 16 – Atascocita 13

By Allan Jamail

Humble, TX. – Turner Stadium, Thursday, October 27, 2022 – It was a classic high school football battle for supremacy in a district championship title game between two unbeaten district rivals. Trust me the thousands of fans that packed the stadium were emotionally charged up until the game’s ending. At one point fans on each side of the packed stands got into a shouting battle much like the battle of the bands. Just when one side would shout their team’s rally slogan the opposite stand would try to out shout the other with their team’s slogan, this went on and on.

With Atascocita aware when weeks before North Shore lost their starting quarterback Kaleb Bailey for the season they were anxious to take down the reigning state champs. Backup quarterback David Amador and the Eastside Boys had something else in mind for the Eagles, he ran 46 yds for a TD and passed for a TD. Carlos Dominguez kicked a 3 point field goal.
