Plot Edit

Another of the "top ten" players (of which his team has other two). He has been a regular at Ryouzan since his 1st year. Katou is boasted as the best high school defensive midfielder and likely the best player overall, which has granted him a seat in the National team of his category. He's well known for his stamina and his tireless leadership and grit, with rivals commenting on how his face would show up anywhere around the pitch, a result of his tireless energy and his superb understanding of plays, characteristics that other players see as well on Tsukushi, with Jin suggesting Tsukushi that Katou is the player that he should try and look after.
