High school football: Katy leads pack of 2-0 teams after Week 2

A week after surviving a test against North Shore, the Katy Tigers used their Week 2 matchup with Atascocita to pounce on their prey.

The Tigers got five touchdowns on the ground, including two by senior Ronald Hoff Jr., as part of a 56-14 mauling of the Eagles on Friday night.

Tigers quarterback Bronson McClelland tossed two touchdowns of his own, going 11-for-15 for 207 yards. He also connected on a 77-yard pass to senior Jordan Patrick.

Katy's defense also reeled in a pick-six by Hunter Washington.

Katy, the No. 2-ranked team in the state, improved to 2-0 in 2019.

"It was a very important game to us," McClelland told ABC13 content partner Vype. "People say rankings don't matter but they are a highly-ranked team in the state. They have some good athletes; they played a good ball game. We just came out here and did what we did."
