Preseason report: Cy Fair

Providing our fans with the best high school and recruiting news is the aim of the TexasPrepInsider organization. Today, we bring you a brief spring report for the Cy Fair team. We caught up with coach Ed Pustejovsky for an update.

Coming off a dismal season in 2008, the Cy Fair football team is back. And rest assured the taste of a 1-8 season is out of their mouths.

It's a new year and this off-season was a much needed confidence booster for the Bobcats.

"I think we are headed in the right direction. We know what we have and there are a bunch of young kids we are going to put on the field for the first time, but we got better every day during the off season," Cy Fair coach Ed Pustejovsky said. "We hope to have a good summer so we can come back in the fall and get better. We have 12 returning letterman coming back from last year's team and we know we don't want to go through what we did last year."

But things are not always as they seem. Sure there was a lone win in the column for last year, but some things cannot be explained by just that.

These kids fought hard and we were in most of the ball games we played in," Pustejovsky said. "We have to pay close attention to details to give ourselves the opportunity to win games so that we will not cost us more games in the future."

So to get the ball rolling, Pustejovsky and the Bobcat coaching staff will line up with those 12 letter winners, eight of which are starters, and make the best in the tough 15-5A district.

For starters, there is some experience coming back offensively, which has the organization excited.

"I'd say that the strength of the team is at our running back position with Tevin Champagne," Pustejovsky said. "We also have some receivers, Jacob Koch and Anthony Kruger, who will help with Patrick Kilday playing tight end. So things are OK offensively.

"Defensively, in out secondary we should be good, we have three kids coming back and they had a good spring."

So there is nothing to it, but to do it.

"I think we have improved as a football team and I am excited about our chances this fall," Pustejovsky said. "We will put young kids on the field, but they will improve on a daily basis. They will have to in order for us to be good."
