ARLINGTON – Katy Paetow has won the first state championship in school history, taking the 5A-Division I football title in thrilling fashion Friday night against College Station.
The Panthers defeated previously-unbeaten College Station 27-24 in overtime on Friday night in Arlington. After making a close 4th-and-1 conversion to get to the College Station 2-yard line, Paetow scored shortly thereafter on a Jacob Brown run up the middle on 1st and goal to win it. Brown was named the game’s offensive MVP.
And with that, in only their fifth year of the school’s existence, Paetow is on top of the Texas high school football world in 5A-Division I.
