Ed Davis

Aw shucks, Dan. Thanks for the memories. It was certainly a good ride to play for the Wildcats and to be able to say I played on teams with guys like Hugh, Charlie Miligan, Bennie Lenox, Chuck Trcka, Paul Timmons and others. Lots of good memories for sure.

Wouldn't it be great if today's technology would have been available in the 50's and 60's? What a pity we don't have a video library of every dadburn Wildcat game ever played! We could while away some of our retirement years watching the players you mentioned and others that had a role in such a rich, high school basketball history.

Ed, I remember you and all of the guys you named above. Each of you played only a few years after the best Wildcat team ever (that would be 1956) but regrettably I don't remember ever seeing your team play.

Dan, the game with North Shore was called off.
The Wildcats at the CCHS tournament playing La Porte got Killed. Only scored about 30 points for the game to La Porte's 60 odd.
LaPorte was able to move the ball and score as needed. Clear Creek did not have a team, just 5 players moving in many different directions. The coach was trying many options with the best players sitting on the bench many times. It's going to be a long season.
Clear Lake won eaisly over Nacogdoches. and plays Elkins at 1:30 Sat. (Good Game)
Creek Plays Brook @ 12:00
Desoto, a top 5 state team, will play LaPorte @ 1:30

I remember seeing that great 1956 team play. It was great, with the whole town behind the team, and the winning like clockwork. What a way to set up the teams that were to follow.

Dan Jensen

Hugh, thanks for that good report but I am wondering why the North Shore game was called off. Quite unusual.

Some state championship football games in Oklahoma have been postponed to Monday or Tuesday but I expect the snow is a lot deeper in Oklahoma than it is on the Gulf Coast of Texas.

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.
