Fort Bend Marshall has gone a ridiculous 29-3 over the past two seasons. Unfortunately, despite this dominant play they’re yet to win a state title over these two seasons. Both times they made it to the 5A D2 title game against Aledo.
In 2018, a 55-19 loss. Last year, a 45-42 loss.
Nonetheless, the Buffalos are one of the most impressive teams in the state of Texas. One of their defensive stars just ended his recruitment. Defensive end, Tristin Drones-Mouton, announced his commitment to Houston Baptist University.
“What made me commit is that I’m at home and that these coaches make me feel like family,” Drones-Mouton said.
The 6’1 251-pound edge rusher had a phenomenal year for Fort Bend Marshall as a junior. EN route to a state runner-up finish in 5A D2, he had 76 tackles and nine sacks with three fumble recoveries.
“What leads me to my success is I’m a hard worker, no stopping me,” the Houston Baptist commit said.
Fort Bend Marshall in 2020 are only returning about half their starters. Still, they’re expected to make a run with their defense. Drones-Mouton is joined by Rice commit linebacker Kenny Seymour as well as defensive back Christian Jackson. If Marshall does make a run, it’ll be because of its elite defense.
“My goal is to go back to state for the third time,” Drones-Mouton said.
If Fort Bend Marshall wants to win a state title, they have to go all-in in 2020. If anyone can be that anchor to lead them to championship glory it’s Tristin Drones-Mouton.
Drones-Mouton joins a Houston Baptist 2021 class with three hard commits. He joins quarterback Orion Olivas (Eastlake) as well as tackle Andrew Alvarado (Robert Vela.)
“What I want fans to know about me is that I’m hungry,” Drones-Mouton said.
