What a great letter that is full of information on the basketball history of the district. Nice to hear from you. Maybe the only Creek coach to go to state three consective years. Hope all is well with you & your family. Maybe there is a tennis letter in the making. I hear you were a pretty good coach at that also.

Dan Jensen

Coach Talley, it's great to have you checking in here. Keep it up. I'm sure you have a lot of "Proctor Stories" that you can tell. Some of his former players already have and I have mentioned his use of the term "mawtapper."

And, tell us more about the changes in the basketball program that were a factor in you and Coach Henry giving up coaching. I know part of it but surely do not know all of the story.

Pat Jensen

What a great contribution by Coach Talley. It's great to hear from him. There is no question that keys to the Webster/Clear Creek basketball success were the emphasis placed on the lower grade programs that ultimately fed the varsity level and the outstanding quality of those coaches. Is it correct that all teams in this system ran the tandem post offense? If so, that would certainly be another factor. Also, does Clear Creek still run that offense?

Dan Jensen

Come on, Coach Talley! Talk to us about that tandem post offense.

Hugh, your comment about tennis brought about some very fond memories when I coached tennis. Kathleen was a great part of that--Karen Cassity and Kathleen got to the State finals in 1958 as a doubles team, then Kathleen and Linda Williams making it to the State Meet in 1959, and then finally winning the State Championship in 1960. Kathleen was an outstanding athlete and a pleasure to work with. Does she still play tennis? I still play tennis once a week with a group here in Gonzales--but doubles only. Tell Kathleen Hi. Coach Talley

Hugh Taylor

Kathleen does not play tennis regularly. However, the family does get together and play doubles for fun. Kathleen wins when she wants to and that is all the time. Our youngest son is a senior at Texas. He got a friend to play doubles against Kathleen & I. We won! It's nice to beat the kids at something.

Another son played in high school & jr. college & is now a teaching pro so he has to play left handed.

Glad you are still playing.

Thanks again for the great post on the basketball history. I'm sure we all appreciate the information.

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.
