SLHS's Alligator Splash from October 3, 1941

My brother recently scanned some items from our family scrapbook, including this copy of old Sugar Land High School's student newspaper, the Alligator Splash.  You can see that it came out a couple of month's before Pear Harbor.

I notice my father scored the only touchdown in the Gators' season-opening victory over Jeff Davis High School's Junior Varsity team.  Jeff Davis was a Houston high school, but I presume they played the game in Sugar Land.

You'll also see a short article saying the Gators' played the Rosenberg Brahmas to a scoreless tie. Given the difference in size between the two schools, this tie was probably a joyous moral victory.  Rosenberg was a big rival and often victorious over the Gators.
