PORT ARTHUR, NOVEMBER 2, 1963
The 1963 version of the Port Arthur Yellow Jackets obviously recalled vividly the 1962 team as they whitewashed
the Greenies 26-0. As the seniors of last year's super-team, which was upset by South Park, watched from the side-
lines; the Jackets completely dominated the battle.
The usually ground-hugging Yellow Jackets shocked the crowd of 12,000 when the first time they got the ball, quar-
terback David Watts unleashed a twenty-yard strike to end Buddy Ball that set up the Jackets on the 16 yard line. Full-
back Charles Wilson made the first of his four touchdowns from that point. Wilson played perhaps his greatest
game of the year as he romped for 129 yards in addition to his four tallies. Another Watts pass set up the second
Jacket score as end Tommy Hicks pulled it in on the two yard line. Wilson put six more points on the scoreboard from
there. Yes, it was a sweet victory for all.
