PORT ARTHUR. OCTOBER 19, 1963
A rousing 20-7 victory over the powerful La Grange Gators set the stage for the Yellow Jackets' 1963 District 11-
The Jackets displayed a mighty ground game led by the brilliant running of fullback Charles Wilson, who scored
twice from the one yard line and kicked both points after touchdowns, in their victory over La Grange. Another factor
in the Jackets' victory was their stalwart defensive play featuring a 40-yard touchdown run with an intercepted pass
by Gene Pace, a star on defense from his cornerback post.
This last pre-district game for 1963 left victory deeply imbedded in the mind of every Jacket player as Port Arthur
prepared to begin a whole new season which, technically, the district games represented.
THE PERFECT STEAL! Eugene Pace (10) snatches the football out of the hands of a Gator receiver as Buddy Ball (84), Mike
Trahan (60), and Tommy Daniels (32) look on in amazement.
Here’s what’s next.
