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.
