Mine would have to be the Milby game in the 57/58 season, won by the Wildcats, 42-41, in our gym. I did not contribute that much to the score but I do remember Chuck Trcka banging in quite a few and I think made the winning basket. As time was running out and we had the ball, somehow I ended up with the ball near half-court. Several of the Buff players descended upon me and I did not want to lose the ball. So, I decided to launch the ball up toward the ceiling and by the time it came down the game was over.

Another reason it was memorable was that my future wife was in attendance as a member of the Milby pep group. They were not too happy with us for beating the Buffaloes, but I guess she forgave me in the long run. We are still together after 43 years.

While wondering why anyone would marry a Milby girl, I wonder just why this particular game turned on the lights for Sir Edward?

We had played a few big schools in the years before then. Was Milby particularly powerful that year?

I have no knowledge of the game because I was at Fort Bliss in good ol' El Paso.

It was always a thrill to beat a Houston 4A school. This particular Milby team had a bevy of good players like Alton Adams and Buster Sullivan among others. That year they went through their Houston district undefeated and went to the regionals before bowing out. The next year they won 3rd place in the 4A state tournament. I know all this because I checked it out in Karla's yearbooks.

This is somwhat straying away from our great years of basketball glory but I would like to brag on another of my grandsons, Jeremy Phillips who is the younger brother of Jason Phillips (TCU middlebacker) has signed a letter of intent to play football for North Texas State. He and his teammates advanced to the regional finals and lost to Dayton 21-26. I believe he should do well, he is an excellent football player. Art

Dan Jensen

I asked this question and commented on Jason Phillips on another thead, Our Alums in Pro Baseball.

That's an obscure lead for sure but means that we ought to click on all the threads, whether they sound interesting or not.

I believe Jeremy is a quarterback. Is that where North Texas wants him to play? Did TCU have any interest in him?

Arthur Landriault

North Texas State has a "red shirted" freshman that is the son of Coach Dodd and will probably be the quarterback. I understand he is quite good. I don't think they have yet decided as to where he will play. Safety and linebacker has been mentioned. He did play quarterback in high school. He is a very good athlete and can play several positions. He did make a trip to TCU to be looked at and coach Paterson stated he did not fit their offence very well and I heard TCU did not like to recruit siblings.

Dan Jensen

I think Todd Dodge's son had his senior season cut short by injury this past year at Southlake Carroll and will be a true freshman. Perhaps there is a redshirt on campus.

I find it strange that TCU shuns siblings. Most colleges are happy for such an "in" with a prospect.

Dan Jensen

I just happened to click on this thread today and see that the question was never really answered. I would think the answer would be against host Lamar Consolidated in the finals of its tournament. Jimmie Goodman stole the ball and his last second layup netted a one point victory and kept us undefeated. That had to be a huge boost to team confidence and provided the momentum for a successful and program building season.

Coach Carlisle at Southwest Texas

  • Coach and Basketball - Senior Year
    The photos in this album are taken from the yearbook, entitled The Pedagog, from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos for the 1948/49 school year. Coach Carlisle was a senior that year. The photos tell a story of a very accomplished and talented athlete but also a person who had many other outstanding attributes as well. Thanks for Peggy Carlisle for supplying the yearbook from which these photos were taken.
