The helmets in those days were not nearly as good as the modern helmets.  In Jr High we had what we called eggshell helmets with the straps inside without much padding and they had simple face masks.  By the time I got to High School our helmets had the foam padding inside.  I had a cage face mask with a bar down the middle.  I cracked a couple of helmets my last two years in HS and got a pretty bad concussion and a compression fracture in my neck half way through my senior season.  I played the last four games with a padded neck roll not realizing how bad I had hurt my neck.  I dug out a newspaper clipping of our last game of the season against Joaquin in 1971 ... I had 31 carries for 165 yards and one TD ...

@KirtFalcon I’d quote Full Metal Jacket but I’d have suspend myself. Something about sneaking a extra inch or two in there. Anyhows, 5-8? You were a bulldog back then weren’t you. Lol

Graduated Carthage High School in 1999.

Played cornerback in 8th grade football at 5’5” and 85 pounds. Time for freshman football and I’d not grown a lick. I graduated high school at about 5’9” and 150 pounds. Did not play high school football.

I’m now 5’11” and change - 6’ and 195 pounds. I saw someone earlier saying their cousin wished he were his size now in high school, ME TOO!!!

Halfway hacked off about it!  😠

I would try to lie and say I remember that game vs. Joaquin, but I wouldn’t be born for almost another year!

I agree....I wish I had my size now back in high school. BUT, I wish now I was IN SHAPE like I was in high school. In my playing days, since I rarely left the field, I was in the BEST shape ever in my life. Even better shape than when I was in the Army.

5’10” 156lbs soak and wet and 16yrs old as a senior. Ran wishbone option from 7th-12th as QB. Couldn’t throw a tight end hot pass my sophomore year or we would’ve been super dangerous. My senior year I ran for 1200 and threw for 1000. That was alot back in 1994. Now I am 5’11” 185lb and a full blood love machine. I have 3 boys that I am teaching all my old tricks and they hold their own pretty well on the ball field.

Paul Pewitt Brahmas ‘95,’96,’97

LT on both sides #53

then 6’1” 220lbs

now 6’1” 270lbs 38 years old

 

I'm sure I played against you. I finished in '96 but '95 was my senior yr of football. We lost to Pewitt 13-8 I believe on a last sec pass from Green to the very tall reciever that graduated in "96
