Homecoming Old School: 1966 Homecoming Images

These images of the SHSU Homecoming in 1966 are from the University Archives.

Fifty years ago rain poured down on Pritchett Field as the BearKats battled in the mud to defeat the East Texas Lions. The BearKats fell to the Lions 17-14.

Scroll down and enjoy a look at the past….

Sammy the BearKat like most Kats doesn’t like the rain. Note how much difference 50 years makes in the image of our beloved Sammy BearKat.
