Go Cy-Fair Bobcats!

UPDATE:  I almost forgot- if you want to see a great drumline check out the Cy-Fair band drumline.  They go down to the sidelines during every game and they are so good they get the whole grandstands rocking.

  1. Yes-we are very proud of Michael. Sam is awesome to watch. What an exciting time! All of the boys give 100% every week. Go Bobcats! BFND!

  4. I was at that game. He is incredible. Actually he had over 375 yards and 8 touchdowns in that game. Finished the regular season with over 2,300 yards and around 33 touchdowns.

  5. Omar Conteh was the best running back Cy-Fair has ever seen, but no doubt Sam is a great athlete.

    Ryan Beard and Omar Conteh were great running backs at cy- fair, but remember, Omar really didn’t break out until his senior year, and his senior year was a great year, but Sam has accomplished all of his success in just his junior season. McGuffie didn’t even start half of his sophomore year. He was a backup, but after the starting running back was injured, Sam stepped up, and was a major reason to the bobcats success in 06. Remember, Sam is still a young man and he still has one year left.
