Due to the restructuring of the UIL 2020 high school football season caused by the novel coronavirus COVID-19, Katy ISD’s nine head coaches spent the last month or so revising their schedules.

Some programs, such as Katy and Tompkins, still have holes to fill on their schedules. But otherwise, the primary change is moving up district games earlier to get those done—as it is the district season that determines playoff qualifiers—and splitting the four non-district games for the district’s seven Class 6A programs, two for Weeks 1 and 2 and two more, if possible, to close the season.

In Class 5A-Division I, where Paetow resides, nine-team District 10-5A will split into zones for the upcoming season. Paetow will be in Zone A with Richmond Foster, Kempner, Rosenberg Terry and Houston Wisdom. Zone B consists of of Angleton, Hightower, Manvel and Milby.

Paetow’s schedule includes two zone crossover games that will be determined after the zone district play-in/seeding games and will be played only if make-ups aren’t needed.

It ­would be unwise to say that these slates are set in stone. Because of the pandemic, this season will be fluid and tentative. But the schedules are aligned to accommodate for flexibility and ensure that the district games are played as early as possible.

Teams are permitted to start official practices on Sept. 7. Scrimmages will be held the week of Sept. 17. Week 1 games will start the week of Sept. 24.

What follows are the schedules, team by team, with scrimmage, homecoming and parent night dates.
