The 2017 football season ended at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

Refugio was making its third straight Class 2A, Division I state final appearance.

The Bobcats' hopes for a second consecutive state championship were dashed in a 34-21 loss to Mart.

But Refugio's road to the state championship game was a remarkable one.

The Bobcats overcame the devastating havoc wreaked by Hurricane Harvey that forced them to play all but two games on the road, and a serious neck injury to one of its players.

Refugio was not the only team affected by Hurricane Harvey. The storm wiped out season-opening games for 27 area teams.

Cuero, Tidehaven and Shiner St. Paul went through the regular season unbeaten.

Cuero, Yoakum, Goliad, Tidehaven, Refugio, Falls City, Woodsboro and St. Paul won district championships.

Yoakum advanced to the semifinals for the second consecutive season.

On the same day Refugio ended its season, Yoakum's Jordan Moore and Silas Robinson and Cuero's Bralen Taylor signed letters of intent to continue their careers on the college level.

Moore signed with Texas A&M, Robinson with Arkansas and Taylor with Baylor. In addition, Hallettsville Sacred Heart graduate Cullen Wick, who played at Blinn College, signed with Tulsa.
