The Decatur Eagles' Football Team started out o n August 15th, with only three lettermen and a new coach-we probably had the lightest squad in the history of the school and the least experienced. The high-lightof the 1948 season w a s the 6-6 tie against a highly-favored Bowie team which won the Regional Title. Jacksboro won from us in a close hard fought game by a single touchdown. Decatur slipped bya heavier Henrietta team by one point in a very evenly matched game. ln a game we would all like to forget Nocona tacked another year on to the jinx they have had on us for so long, The last game of the season proved to be a great one for the Eagles as they came from behind to win over Newcastle. Our season record stood at five wins, four losses, and one tie, and a tie for third place in district. Two players were named to the official all-district team, and several others re- ceived honorable mention. The boys trained, worked hard, and sacrifice-j s ome of the things they enjoyed doing. They developed fine team-work and a great competitive spirit. This accounts for their very successful season.

Even thoughthe 1948-49 cage team failed by inches to capture the district champi- onship, their successful season will long be remembered. During the year, the Eagles participated in three tournaments, and brought home three trophies, which is a rare accomplishment for any high school. They captured first place honors in the strong Wichita Falls Jr. Chamber of Commerce Tournament with victories over Quanah, Olney, Bowie, and Vernon. lnthe Parker County Tournament held at Weatherford the Eagles were defeated in their first game with Arlington Heights of Fort Worth, but came backto defeat Cisco and Weatherford fo r the consolation trophy. In the third and final tournament he ld at Decatur Baptist College, the Eagles emerged with the second place trophy after being defeated by Bowie in a closely contested game in the finals, In conference play the fighting birds entered the play-off with Nocona undefeated. In the firstplay-off game, the Eagles had a five point lead with less than two minutes to play, but a strong Indian finish defeat.-14 the locals 32 to 43. ln the second play-off game at Nocona we were leading by one point w i th less than twenty seconds to go. They tied the game up with a free throw' as the gong ended the regular playing time. In the three-minute extra period, the hard-fighting Eagles watched the districtcham- pionship ease out of sight by the na r row e s t margin, 31 to 32. Those were tense moments that will ring loudly in our memories for many years.
