7 JACKETS MAKE ALL-DISTRICT
A brlsk northwest wind blew through Alvln High School's Memorlal Stadl-
um as It looked like the Alvin Yellowjackets were going to put the Texas City
Stingarees out of dlstrlct contention in perhaps the most exciting football
game ever played In Alvln. The Stlngarees. however, had different ideas as
their shell-shocked crowd brought the Stings back to life late In the game to
overcome Alvln's 21-7 lead and take the district crown with them. Alvin
totally dominated the entire game, but the Stings came through when It
counted and took away the victory.
This was the way It was all year long for the frustrated Yellowjackets.
They played even the toughest teams well, but the breaks always seemed
to lean the other way. Coach Ward's gang never gave up the ropes In any
game once again provlng that 'Jacket Flght Never Diesl'
After the impressive 5-5 record from 1978, everyone was expecting great
things from the Yellowjackets, but fate had it another way.
Deer Park started off the tough breaks for the 'Jackets as they blew
through Memorial Stadium taking the 'Jackets 82-7. Senlor quarterback Char-
Ile Ackley was the offensive leader as the Yellowjackets jumped out to an
early 7-0 lead, on George Perry's 11 yard touchdown run. The offense never
got real control agaln as the Deer took over for good.
The next game was typlcal of the year as the Allef Bears took lt with :23
remaining In the game on a 20 yard field goal. The kick which broke the 14-
14 tie placed the Yellowjackets at the bottom with an 0-2 record. Junior
running back Alex Small scored both Alvin touchdowns and gained more
than 100 yards on the nlght.
Clear Creek turned out to be Alvln's only "vIctlm" of the year as the
Wildcats were stung by the 'Jackets 39-9. Scores ln the game came from Alex
Small. Charlie Ackley, Kyle Channing, Jlm Foster, and two touchdown recep-
tions by Scott Lang. The large lead allowed junior quarterback Lyn Hitt to see
hls flrst action of the year, and he did well under the pressure responding
with three touchdown passes. Great defense was led by Carroll Kelly, Coby
Sweeny, Steven Skidmore, and Kyle Jones.
The excltement from the wln over Creek spllled over into the next week
as the pep rally prlor to the Galveston Dall game was one of the best ln the
SchooI's hlstory. The game, however, was another story as the 'Jackets came
away bleary-eyed and wlnded after chasing down I3all's speedy runnlng
backs all nlght long. The Tornadoes led at one point by the score 34-7, but the
Yellowjackets never gave up and battled back to 46-27. The 500 yards that
Galveston racked up on the ground was just too much to recapture and the
'Jackets fell to 0-1 In district play. Having good games against Dall were
Ackley, Foster, Sean Berry, George McDonald, and punter Kyle Channing.
Against Angleton, tragedy struck as Ackley went down for the remainder
of the season with a knee injury. lt wasn't a total loss, however, as by the
score of 85-14 ln the battle for district hope. The Yellowjackets took lt on the
chln as any hope for the dlstrict crown was now gone. Having good games
against Angleton were Hltt, Channing, Alex Small. and Jlm Foster. One
highlight of the game came when wlde recelver Channing threw a pass to
tlght-end Jim Foster for a first down on a cruclal fourth down play.
Unfortunately, taklng it on the chln became the habit after each game
from then on after the Dickinson Gators cleanedup on the Yellowjackets 42-
20. Craig Hunt, Channlng, Hitt, and several others gave thelr best effort
against the Gators, but the result was another loss.
