The Port Isabel Tarpons will entertain the Chargers of Brownsville Veterans Memorial this Friday night. It will be the Tarpons’ final non-district game of the season.
Veterans Memorial is the new school in town and this is their second season of football competition. And here’s a surprising fact; they’re undefeated. That’s undefeated, as in they haven’t lost a game yet, including all of last season, when the Chargers played a combination varsity/junior varsity schedule.
It’s a rare program that gets off to a start like that, a fact that is not lost on the Tarpon coaching staff. “They beat (this season) Corpus Christi Ray and…Corpus Christi Miller, who beat us,” head Tarpon football coach Monty Stumbaugh said this week. “Then they beat La Villa. They’re scoring points and moving the football.” The Chargers overwhelmed La Villa last week, 55-35.
