Stuart Clarkson, Assistant Football Coach at SLHS
I never knew Stu Clarkson's story until Jon Pitts (DHS '61) told it to me a few years ago. Clarkson died on the sidelines in Hitchcock, Texas as Sugar Land played Hitchcock on October 25th, 1957. I found an account of the story in The Houston Chronicle. It says he was dead on arrival at Alvin Memorial Hospital in Alvin. The last image shows a plaque dedicating the scoreboard at Kempner Stadium in his honor. I never really looked at the plaque although it's been there since October, 1958.
