There's a good two part feature recently in the Galveston News that will be plumb loverly reading for all Carlisle family fans.

That website address has been shared on another thread but I will repeat it here too: http://galvestondailynews.com/sports.lasso

Some of the facts and figures are wrong but it's good reading. The most glaring error is that we were 99-1 in district play during the Carlisle reign. Not so, it was actually a lowly 92-3.

Alvin beat us to break our 28 game winning streak in 1954 then won again the next year and we lost to LaPorte in the last district game that year when Boonie Wilkening was out with a sprained ankle.

I have posted this elsewhere also but this 99-1 nonsense needs to stop! Nobody is that good, not even old Clear Creek.

I remain quite unhappy that all these incorrect season records have been allowed to remain in Clear Creek legend for so long. So, I would like to imbed in stone forevermore the correct records for Coach's glory years:

1954 31-2
1955 22-8 NOT 26-5
1956 33-1 NOT 30-4
1957 33-3 NOT 32-3
1958 33-4
1959 27-14 NOT 26-11
1960 39-3
1961 36-2
1962 34-5 NOT 34-4

In district play:
1954 7-1 NOT 9-1
1955 6-2 NOT 10-0
1956 8-0 NOT 10-0

All the above errors are inexcusable but most of all is the 1956 season record. How can anyone NOT remember that we took an undefeated record to the state tournament? 30-4? How can a team lose four games in a state tournament? Try 33-1, the best record of any of Coach's teams.

My Photo

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.
