For those of us who were around for the 1962 season, the new additions to the coaching staff are nearly astounding. Jerry Sadler was the Head Coach of the North Side team that handed us our only District loss that year...and Raymond Davila was his team's quarterback! Davila was voted the District 4A-5 outstanding back for the 1962 season. I think he played football at Baylor.
Hmm...Davila was our age. Don't know about you, but in 1968 I was about 9000-miles west of Ft. Worth collecting combat pay...see how those various deferments worked? In school--deferred; married--deferred; employed in a critical defense industry--deferred; Reserves--sort of deferred; Daddy with political connections--maybe Germany or an erstwhile journalist; with children--even more deferred, etc.
1968. Gone are Johnson, Vaughn, Mitcham, Willingham, and Graves. It was a different locker room, to be sure.
