Buddy Carlisle

From a loss standpoint, I would want to repeat the famous "chocolate cake" game at home vs. Clear Lake in 1988. We were both ranked in the top 5 in the state at the time and it was basically for the district title. We led by 20 midway through the second quarter and someone from Lake threw a layered choclate cake onto the floor right over my shoulder. It actually nicked my sport coat(it was brand new and i never wore it again) and landed on the court near the sideline. It took about 15 minutes to clean up good enough so we could play again. We lost all momentum and they cut the lead to about 10 at half. They continued to cut into the lead and forced overtime where we lost on a baseline jumper by Troy Valentino at the end of the 2nd OT in an absolute heartbreaker.

I would love to play that one over again minus the cake!

On a positive note, it would be fun to relive the Galveston ball game in 1969 where we packed what is now the girls gym or Butler Gym. The gym was filled right after school at 4:30 and we had a pep rally and left no room for the Ball fans to sit except for their team and subvarsity kids. The fire marshall locked the gym before any Ball fans could get in and people were looking in the windows at the end of the gym. Many windows were broken out and it was the last boys game played in there since Carlisle Field House opened the next year. We led big but they came back and took a one point lead late and had the ball. I was lucky to deflect a pass into the backcourt in our 1-3-1 trap and took it to the hole only to be fouled before getting the shot up. I made the one and one and we held on to win, our 16th district title in a row. That is one I wouldn't mind replaying with the same result!!!

The 1966 OT game was a Heartbreaker. Both teams had opportunities late in regulation to win but our poor first half shooting was really our undoing.

Final Score: 64-60 John Marshall

Scooter Lenox

The 1968 Conroe regional game was a tremendous disappointment to us all. Conroe had a very good team and an excellent game plan. We ran the l-3-l and they had us spread out so far and moved the ball so quickly that they had uncontested perimeter shots and were making them. They shot 67% the lst half and ended up at around 60% for the game. We had beaten them earlier in the season in Texas City and we won by l point. If we could play that game over again in TC, I would like to,and lose that one in trade for the regional game. The only thing that game in TC did was let us keep an undefeated season in tact. Who cares about all the games you win if you get your butt kicked in regionals. I could sense something bad was going to happen. Our team was way to cocky.

Terry Mathis

My basketball game to play over again would be the South San Antonio game that we lead by 14 at the half and were beaten by 2 points, in the semi finals of the state tourney in 1967. My baseball games would be the 2 losses in the regional play offs against Beaumont Forest Park in 1967. If we could just play them over again. What if?

Dan Jensen

Terry, how about some details on those two Forest Park losses? We have to tip our hat to the Beaumont team, it beat Scooter Lenox, a really good junior pitcher, in one of those games. We had an outstanding team and you were a good enough shortstop to be drafted in the sixth round by the Phillies.

Terry Mathis

We lost the 2 games by a total of either 2 or 3 runs. We had torrential ran all day and night the day before the double header and were told that we would probably not play the next day. So all of the Seniors stayed up all night at our Senior Party, and got no sleep at all. The next day we were told that we were going to play in Beaumont. I think Scooter was beaten 1-0, and he pitch a great game, we just didn't get many hits. And the rest is history. Also Forest Park was beaten in the State Championship game 2-0 by South San.

Richard McDowell

I understand before the Clear Creek school district came into existance, both Webster and League City had their own high schools.  Did League City have a football team?  I looked under the list of teams Webster played and they were nowhere to be found.  Maybe someone can clarify this. 

Dan Jensen

Both had high schools but the League City Cardinals played six man football against such schools as Adicks and Danbury. Johnny Cucco was an outstanding drop kicker.

League City's 17 year old basketball tournament was transferred to the consolidated school and it now is probably the oldest tournament in the state.

Dan Jensen

I have since found out that we do not have the oldest basketball tournament in the state. This false information sure floated around for a long time. Buddy Carlisle did some research on this and has the details.

    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.
