Over the autumn months I've posted items about the Sugar Land Gator 1938 football season. They won the school's first district title 75 years ago, but then lost their bi-district championship game to Alvin.
Unfortunately, I don't have a newspaper clipping for that game. However, I do have a wrap-up article Morris Frank, long-time Houston Chronicle sports reporter, wrote about the post-season sports banquet. In many ways, it's much better than a game report. At the bottom of this item is a good, clear image of the 1938 team's starting line up. Alfred Tarver's daughter provided it via her cousin Carlos Tarver (SLHS '53). Unfortunately, I've forgotten her name, but I want to thank her nonetheless.
