Prowlers Struggle to Open Season
Member of SHS Hall of Honor Will Play Pro
Football
Back to Eagles Nest Home


5-22-03; Sunrise Beach, MO-  Clint Moss, Jack Scott, Eric Stack, George Biggs, Don Moss, Brad Newbanks...these are
some of the many notable and great football players from Sullivan High School.  Some of these athletes have gone on to play
college football, but as great as they are, none of them have ever joined the ranks of a professional football team.  One
member of the SHS Hall of Honor, however, will spend 2003 as not just a player-but a starter-on a pro football roster.  No
doubt your mind is racing, trying to think back on all the fine players in Sullivan's recent history that may be the subject of this
article.  Perhaps you are thinking of names like Hamblin, Brandt, Moss, or even Rhodes.  The name you are looking for can
be found alongside these on the 1999 Football Roster.  The name you are looking for is Stack.  Those who followed the '99
Eagles may be a bit perplexed at this point.  Jay Stack was a fine lineman...All-Conference, in fact.  But even with that kind of
skill, Jay was maybe around 220 at his heaviest while playing for the Eagles.  Did he manage to pick up some fullback skills?  
Has he found a niche with an Arena League or CFL team?  Hang on a second there, partner!  As I write this, Jay Stack is not
yet even eligible to be elected to the Hall of Honor!  I must have gone mad, right?
Wrong!  You really will be able to see Stack performing on the pro football scene in the near future.  
Gale Stack.  That's
right...Gale Stack.  Arguably the best player in the more than 90 years
Lady Eagles Basketball will be starting at
Quarterback for the Missouri Prowlers, a franchise of the Women's Professional Football League, which will begin their
second season in the league in August 2003.  The Prowlers play their home games in the Springfield area, and tickets are
available in a variety of packages at www.missouriprowlers.com.  Stack, listed on the Prowlers Roster as a 5'10", 150 lb.
rookie, was a member of the Sullivan High School class of 1988.  She will look to lead her team to an improved record
following their 0-10 inaugural campaign.
9-1-03; Sunrise Beach, MO-  The Missouri Prowlers, the Women's Professional Football League team for which Lady
Eagles' basketball legend Gale Stack began the season as starting quarterback, have stumbled out of the gate.  While both the
Prowlers' and the leagues' website appear to be slightly outdated (the team had 4 games scheduled in August, but the record
only reflects 2 games), and while individual statistics are as yet unavailable, the team did not score at all in either of its first two
games at least, and the score of their opener against the Dallas Diamonds was 66-0.  More information as it becomes
available.
