C. Lynn Davis

The message below was sent to me by email by Dr. C. Lynn Davis. I wanted to share his comments with all of you. Also, we will look forward to some photos of the finished products.

As you may know by now , Coach Buddy Carlisle has brought me a couple of the state tourney trophies to see if we can bring back the luster finish. Thanks to a little elbow grease and BRASSO, the shine is back!!

Buddy and I have agreed he will bring me two of the State trophies at a time so I can polish, photo, and post them. We will do all the State trophies from 1956 till 1967 - an era that will LIVE in our minds and hearts forever as Wildcats.

Dan Jensen

I give Lynn Davis a hard time whenever possible but I must acknowledge with great appreciation his labor of love in restoring our championship trophies to their proper luster.

Following is a note from him: "Just finished the final polish on this trophy that Buddy Carlisle will return to the CCHS trophy case. Noticed something strange as I was polishing this silver ball with the names on it. Joe McKinney's name was not spelled correctly. Joe did you know on this trophy that they spelled your name as McKinnley ? It was an honor to polish this trophy which will be in all our hearts for a lifetime."

Then, this response from Joe McKinney: "Coach Henry had told me when the trophy came back, but since I was a Soph. and just happy to be part of the team, it was left with the incorrect spelling."

I think that proper spelling is important and that this mistake is unfortunate but it is way too late to correct it now.

Snubbed by the UIL
As part of its Centennial Celebration, the UIL is taking votes for All Century teams in various sports. I went to their website to take a look at their candidates for their basketball team and was disgusted to see that not one player from Clear Creek was on their list. With our rich tradition and extensive list of great players I can't believe they couldn't come up with a name or two. I'll be sending them my thoughts about this. Just thought you'd like to know.

Dan Jensen

What are the details on the all-century basketball team? A first team, second team, etc. situation or ten players or some number on one team? I need to know more about it before I complain.

Here's the link:

You can vote for 5 guards, 5 forwards and 2 centers.

Dan Jensen

OK, I just checked the list. It's an outrage that Bennie Lenox is not listed and probably Bill Doty too.
I wonder who was involved in forming that list? Bennie was one of the very best of the guards and it is mind boggling that he is not even listed.

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.
