As some of you know, I found some Kennedy assassination papers just over a week ago. I looked through a paper from the weekend after the assassination and found the all metro team. I was astounded as to how small the kids were.

I'm going to list by positions and weight, to save time and space. They only did the offense, no defense team was announced at this time.

FIRST TEAM

End 190
End 170
Tackle 210
Tackle 210
Guard 205
Guard 185
Center 165
Back 185
Back 195
Back 175
Back 170

SECOND TEAM

End 208
End 195
Tackle 205
Tackle 190
Guard 160
Guard 168
Center 210
Back 175
Back 170
Back 156
Back 185

BTW, guys on this team included Mike Livingston.

Just thought you might find this interesting.

Some 1A schools are this big.....:O

The S&P 500 closed at 73.23.

Humans have certainly gotten bigger and faster. What schools were these guys from?

Wow!
I'd Like to see what position those lineman would be playing now-a-days....

I recall back in the day when a 250 lb lineman was considered a moose! Things have changed considerably since then.

As a 195 lb pulling guard I'd have to be a running back now. :eek::D

All the big Dallas area schools, HP, Garland, mostly Dallas City Schools like BA and Kimball and Adamson, Lancaster, Grand Prairie, etc.

That is what I figured. The current powers were all little country schools back then.

1963 - The first year of varsity football for Southlake Carroll. Played 9/Won 2/Lost 7.

Who, in 1963, would have thought that the Dragons would become the high profile program they are today.

In 1963 (also 1964) Garland was the Large classification state champ. At halftime at the PO game after the Kennedy funeral, the Garland band did a limited show featuring the drum cadence of the funeral procession.
