GALENA PARK . . . For three quarters it looked as
though Tiger fans were in for a long season as Galena
Park built up a 22-6 lead. But in the fourth quarter
the Tigers capitalized on enemy fumbles and pushed
across two touchdowns to reduce the margin to 22-20.
Then, as the final seconds ticked off the clock,
Robbie Patman hauled in a Galena Park punt and
returned it all the way, giving the Bengals a 26-22
ARKANSAS . . . The Tigers got back their winning
ways against their old rival with a 19-13 victory. The
Razorbacks took an early lead, but the Bengals bounced
back to tie the score and bang across the winning
touchdown in the fourth quarter. This victory also
marked the first time the Tigers were rated No. 1 in

AN EPIDEMIC OF FOOTBALL FEVER gripped our city from
September to early December as the Tigers made 8-4A .history and
came within two games of the state championship.
On September 10, 1965, shouts from Houston shook the ground
and vibrated all the way to Texarkana. The mighty Tigers had
just come from a 22-6 deficit to overcome Galena Park 26-22 in
the fourth quarter. The tradition of beating Arkansas was revived
with a 19-13 victory. Three more pre-district foes faced the Tigers,
but with strength and determination, they conquered all three-
Sulphur Springs, Ft. Worth, Corpus Christi.
'4We're No. 15, was the battlecry of Tiger fans as they took a
giant step into the challenging land of district games. The Tigers
met predictions by stomping their first three opponents-John
Tyler, Lufkin, and Longview. The Mighty Marshall Mavericks-
picked to win-also went down under the Tigers' skill. The 8-4A
championship became a reality with a convincing 27-0 win over
The No. 1 team roared into bi-district playoffs and "showed
their stuff" by downing Denison 28-6. And Dallas Hillcrest couldn't
stop them in quarter-finals. Then they went to meet the Odessa
Panthers. . .
Dreams of state championship faded, but the record is written
and they are proud. With a history-making twelve-game winning
streak, the Tigers placed two players on the All-State team, thirteen
on All-District, and Coach Myers was named Coach-of-the-Year.
