Undefeated Angleton HS presses forward with fallen coach on players' mind

ANGLETON, Texas (KTRK) -- The Angleton High School football team, is having one of those types of seasons.

The Wildcats are undefeated at 13-0 and have scored 706 points, while only given up 80 this entire season. They are having a lot of fun this season.

"The journey has been unexplainable this season," said Angleton safety Giancarlo Diaz. "We are here making history for our school, our fans, and our city."

Cornerback Chris Bowie adds, "I can't really describe how fun it is because each time I think it is fun, it surprises me."

Undefeated Manvel will be the team's stiffest challenge yet, but Angleton is up for the challenge.

"They can expect us to show up and show out," said Bowie.

Angleton is honoring the passing of one of their assistant coaches.

Angleton Junior High coach J.R. Wagner tragically died last year in a drowning accident.

"All of our kids are wearing these very cool wristbands that we have and we have dedicated our season to J.R.," said head coach Ryan Roark. "They miss him, we miss him dearly, and that is what the football in this trophy case represents."
