Galena Park ISD Stadium, Friday, November 8, 2019 – The Galena Park Yellow Jackets ended their season with an easy win over the Houston Wisdom Generals 41 – 0. The Jackets showed improvement from the previous year winning more district games but not enough to qualify for the district playoff games.

Friday’s game was Parents Night that was never a real contest, from start to finish Coach Spiro Amarantos’ offensive and defensive team’s dominated the Generals.

Seniors having played together since their freshmen year became a close knit bunch, and found it to be emotional to part with their football relationships. The night’s joyous victory wasn’t enough to stop the tears from players, parents and friends that had gathered in a large crowd to say goodbye to the senior players.

The Jackets lose valuable senior talent, losing 28 seniors. The coaches will have 22 returning varsity players and have 56 freshman players coming up to build from.
