Top 50 Falcons

Foster High School was ranked No. 50 overall in the Fizz Rankings for the top 100 high school football programs for the past five seasons. 

The Fizz Rankings has spent the majority of the football offseason ranking the top programs in each classification and division among Texas high school football teams. This week, Fizz Rankings released its top 100 programs for the past five seasons.

Four programs from Fort Bend County and its surrounding communities made the list.

Locally, Foster High School was ranked No. 50 overall.

Over the past five years, Foster has won 12 playoff games including four games during the 2016 campaign. Foster finished that year with a 14-1 record, one game away from the Class 5A, DI state championship game.

The Falcons have won over 60 games in McDowell’s seven seasons at “The Nest.” The prolific run has included a 50-18 mark over the past five seasons, along with a handful of district championships and a regional crown.

Also in Class 5A, Fort Bend Marshall was No. 38 overall. The Buffaloes were the number four in the Class 5A-DII rankings after back-to-back trips to the state championship game.

Under head coach James Williams, Marshall has won 54 games over the past five seasons.

In Class 6A, Katy checks in at No. 21 overall. The Tigers won over 60 games over the past five seasons including a state championship in 2015.

Further south in Fort Bend, Fort Bend Ridge Point ranked No. 80 overall.

The Panthers have won 49 games over the past five seasons under Brett Sniffin.

Sniffin departed this offseason and was replaced by former Lamar Consolidated head coach Rick LaFavers.

A team just across the county line also made the list with East Bernard at No. 22.

The Brahmas were 60-10 over the five seasons. Most recently, coach Wade Bosse’s squad has won back-to-back regional titles before falling one game short of making the state championships.
