Texas City Has Overcome a Lot to Become a Dynamic Unit

In Texas City, the community works hard for everything they’ve got. Sometimes it means 21 straight days working in the industrial plants to make ends meet. To the youth in Texas City, it can often feel like football is the way to a better future. On the gridiron, the Stingaree players have proven to be something special. Finishing the regular season 9-1 including a gritty win over perennial power Fort Bend Marshall, has given the guys purpose when often it felt as if they were running in place. Guys like defensive end, Zee Scott. At home, he takes care of his mom who has cancer and his dad who has Sickle Cell. But when he’s in the locker room, his second family gives him a place to forget about the troubles at home Then there’s cornerback, Rickey Green. Due to financial problems at home, Rickey found himself homeless not once, but twice. He leaned on the kindness of his football family to help him through. Especially star running back, Caleb Bell, who’s family took Green in at his time of need. And how about Caleb himself. Despite being the number 1 option in the Stingaree offense, Bell has his trials and tribulations as well. He had a baby girl at age 15 and now his daughter, Ivy, has opened his eyes to the man he wants to be. All the players at Texas City have been taking each of their challenges head on and it shows on and off the field. This isn’t just a great football team, but an inspirational family.
