Katy is one of the top programs in the largest classification in the state of Texas. In fact, the Tigers were ranked in the top 10 in the nation for most of the year in the RivalsHigh100 and any season without a state championship is almost seen as a disappointment.
The varsity roster lists 80 players on it so it is incredibly rare somebody plays both ways. Matt Dimon is the exception though. In fact, the 6-foot-4, 252-pound junior was a first-team all-district selection at both tight end and defensive end. Schools have taken notice and he recently picked up his first offer.
"I have an offer from Baylor," Dimon said on Tuesday evening. "I'm hearing from Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Baylor, and Northwestern."

Dimon received his offers from the Bears at a junior day. He has been invited to attend similar events at a few other schools in the coming weeks as well.
"I went to the Baylor junior day and got an offer from Baylor on Jan. 29," he said. "I'm supposed to go to the Texas Tech junior day this upcoming Saturday, but I don't think I'm going to be able to make it. I've been invited to the Oklahoma junior day (in March). That's about it right now."
Dimon admits to following a pair of schools rather closely while growing up.
"I really like Northwestern and Oklahoma," he said. "You know Oklahoma is always a pretty good school and ranked really high. And my mom's side of the family is from Chicago and (Northwestern is) in Evanston and I've always really liked them. They're a team I've always heard about."
In fact, Dimon says those schools could be considered his current leaders as well.
"Yes sir, I really like them," he said. "This spring and summer I think I'm going to make a trip up to Northwestern for their spring practice and stuff."
Dimon, who also throws the shot put in track, says most schools are recruiting him as a defensive end.
