Jackets Wrap Up District
PORT ARTHUR. NOVEMBER 15, 1963
With the district crown in the sights of every Yellow Jacket player, they romped and stomped over hapless Beau-
mont 49-6. The Jacket ground game proved too much for the Royal Purples as they rolled up 479 offensive yards. The
Purples were limited to 206 total offensive yards, even though the Jackets often played second and third string
players. Quarterback David Watts threw a 31-yard touchdown strike to end Claude Pardue for the first Jacket touch-
down. The conversion attempt was wide. After receiving the ball, the Purples couldn't move it and punted to the
Jacket 35-yard line. On the first play of the series Walter Sorgee, aided by great blocking of the Jacket line, raced 65
yards to a second Jacket touchdown. The Jackets drove 99 yards for their next score, with Jesse DeLee capping the
drive by catching a 7-yard touchdown pass.
The Jackets' scoring was increased by the running of junior wingback Dale Bernauer, who scored touchdowns on
jaunts of 87 and 20 yards. Other scores for the Jackets came on a one-yard plunge by Dwayne Catalina and a one-
yard run by Edgar Eaton.
This was the Jackets' greatest offensive show of the season and a great way to close the district race.
HALFBACK DWAYNE CATALINA seems to lose the ball as he races in from seven yards out to score. Clearing the way for him are
Mike Hilliard (15), Pinky Chaddrick (65), and Dale Berneur (24).
