First Baptist Wylie Hall of Honor Profile - Chuck Edge


By Shiela Haynes

Chuck Edge was inducted into the Wylie Sports Hall of Honor in the 2005 class. A 1979 graduate of Wylie High School, Edge competed on some of the best athletic teams in Pirate’s history.

He was a 3-year starter for a football team that went 34-8 over three seasons including the 1977 state champion and the 1978 state finalist. Edge played defensive tackle and offensive guard for the Pirates. For his football endeavors, he received all-district honors all three seasons, including honorable mention as a sophomore, all-district defense in his junior season, and all-district offense and defense as a senior.

Anyone who was around for the 1977 football season probably remembers the season that began with a win followed by two losses. Expectations were low, but then things got rolling with a string of victories that swept through the District 2-2A field and ended with Wylie claiming a district championship and advancing into the postseason where they eventually won the state championship.

For Edge, Thursday nights were one of his fondest memories.  “Our coach’s pep talks were out of this world.  Just as Coach Howard embraces “family”, we did also.” Edge said head coach Jerry Shaffer was a great coach; “He got the best out of everybody,” he said.

They clipped Granbury 16-14 in bi-district and drew Breckenridge in the regional championship. No one gave Wylie much of a chance going into that game, but the Pirates won 12-10. Even though they had been knocking off opponents left and right, Edge said the players had doubts about how far they could actually get in the playoffs.

“Beating Breckenridge changed that,” he said.

Next up, they whipped Mount Vernon 35-10 in the state quarterfinal which set up a state semifinal versus Childress. As they had been throughout the run, Wylie was the underdog.

One of the interesting storylines to come out of the Childress game was the exceptional value of film study. Coaches noticed that the way one of the Childress lineman placed his hand on the ground telegraphed the play that had been called.

“He put his hand down one way if he was going straight ahead, another way if he was going to pull out,” said Edge.

After defeating Childress 27-7, they traveled to Waco where they defeated Bellville 22-14 in the state final. The following season found the Pirates back in the state final, but they lost to Sealy.

“Bellville was better as a team than Sealy,” said Edge. “What most people don’t know is that (Sealy running back) Eric Dickerson was also an all-state safety.”

Football may have dominated the fall, but springtime was all about baseball for Edge. A four-year starter at third base, he earned all-district honorable mention as a sophomore and was named all-district as a junior and senior.

Wylie baseball had amassed a solid winning reputation over the years. In Edge’s senior season, which was also the inaugural year under head coach Sam Terry, the Pirates rang up a 29-1 record. The singular loss came in the playoffs to the eventual state champion. The 1979 baseball season was the first year small enrollment schools (Wylie in 2A at the time) were able to advance into a state championship. Prior to that, only 3A and 4A schools had that opportunity while small school playoffs only extended to regional. In 1980-81, the B classification was dropped and Class 5A was added and state champions were crowned in every classification.

When asked what advice he would give students and athletes now, he said, “Enjoy your coaches, teammates and the moments you are making.  Do your best so you have no regrets when you reminisce later in life.  It’s all gone too soon.”

Edge is married to Donna, also a 1979 WHS graduate and an associate principal at Wylie East High School. Both of their sons also graduated from Wylie (2001, 2002).  They have five grandchildren.  Edge serves on the Wylie Sports Hall of Honor Board of Governors.

Albertsons Market Game of the Week, Pirates vs. West Mesquite











This week the Pirates will meet the West Mesquite Wranglers. When they met last year, in a very exciting game, the Pirates lost in overtime with a score of 34-33.

Ranked No. 13 this week in SportsDay’s area Class 4A rankings, West Mesquite is coming off of a 20-7 loss to Rockwall Heath last week.

The Wranglers are a standard powerhouse in Class 4A.  Junior quarterback Chase Virgil, in his third year on varsity, racked up 265 yards last game, with receiver William Stanley adding nine catches for 95 yards. “They are very athletic and very fast, on offense and defense,” said Head Coach Bill Howard.

“Against West Mesquite, it’s not so much what they do, but what we need to do,”said Howard.  “We have got to take care of ourselves.  We can’t make mistakes. We’ve got to cut down on the penalties. We have to finish plays and finish the game at the pace we start.”

Kickoff is 7:30 p.m. at Wylie Stadium.

Pirates Come Up Short

In a hard fought game at Wylie Stadium, Sachse came from behind to win 56-52, with 1:48 left, giving Wylie a loss for its season opener.

Both teams traded the lead back and forth the entire game but a last second pick by Sachse ended a come from win for Wylie.

Wylie showed glimpses of greatness as a young offense, led alternately by Kameron Kelly and Carsen Cook, with strong showings by sophomore Jordan Whaley and senior Alex Wesley at receiver, garnered 268 yards in the air.

Strong defensive play, led by Ja’Varyea Hicks’s interception and Elijah Harris’s tackling, held Sachse to a field goal in the 3rd quarter, giving Wylie a commanding 52-34 lead going into the 4th quarter, where Wylie had a hard time executing, allowing Sachse to come from behind for the win.

Countdown to 2013

Counting Down To Pirate Football 2013

August 30, 2013




2013 Pirate Captains








Walking on the field tonight as captains for the Pirates will be seniors Israel Acuay, Jarell Brown, Kameron Kelly and Laurent Njiki.  Three of the four have been on varsity the last three years, bringing with them much experience. 

Israel Acuay, who is a two-year starter, is an extremely talented athlete that plays different positions.  “He uses his personality to relate to people,” said Coach Howard.  

Representing the defense is Jarell Brown, who leads the secondary.  “He is kind of quiet and will need to come out of his shell, but he is a very savvy football player,” said Howard.

Kameron Kelly, starting quarterback, is a leader by position.  “Being in the forefront, he has a little pressure on him,” said Coach Howard.  Kelly has shown though that he can rise to the occasion.

Offensive lineman Laurent Njiki has been a leader on offense the last two years and brings with him a stableness.  Coach Howard noted, “He is very educated and very smart.  He is a rock, we can build on.  All four are very good young men of high character and will be excellent leaders.”

Game Day Preview - Sachse
















It was a fierce match up last year as the Pirates met the Mustangs at Garland’s Williams Stadium.  During the first quarter, starting quarterback Kameron Kelly was injured and Carsen Cook assumed the role for the Pirates.  In spite of putting up a good fight, Wylie ended with a loss in overtime with a score of 36-44.


Last season, Sachse finished second in 11-5A with an 8-3 record. Sachse returns quarterback Kent Myers, who passed for 2,803 yards and 28 touchdowns while rushing for 1,202 yards and 17 touchdowns.  They also have a senior-laden defense with lots of experience and a very talented secondary.   “Overall they have great team speed and depth at their skill positions which will help them on a hot night, as it’s going to be hot Friday night”, noted Pirate Head Coach Bill Howard. 


When asked what the Pirates need to do, Coach Howard said, “We need to limit our mistakes.  We have to win the turnover battle and we also have to win the line of scrimmage, offensively and defensively.  If we do that and play good solid hard-nosed football for 48 minutes, we have a chance to win.”
