Jackets Cop Opener
PORT ARTHUH. SEPTEMBER 13. 1963
With more pre-season credentials than Scotland Yard, the 1963 Port Arthur Yellow Jackets made their debut by
trouncing a tough Bellaire team 16-0. The Yellow Jackets were burdened with being ranked number two in the state
and number four in the nation, but they convinced the near capacity crowd of 13.000 the) were a team to be reckon-
The Jackets lit up the scoreboard for the first time in the third quarter when quarterback Gene Pace found end
Tonumny flicks for a 20 yard touchdown pass. Tailback Walter Sorgee swept end for the gratis points. The second
Jacket tally came in the fourth quarter when fullback Charles Wilson plunged over for the score.
In the final analysis it was the Jacket defense that beat Bellaire. Led by linebackers Norman Reeves, Tommy Daniels,
and Chris Bray, the "Headhunters" constantly throttled the Cardinal scoring bids.
