James Glenn Jersey Retirement and Teacher Appreciation Night

September 28, 2018 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

On Friday September 28, Creek teachers are invited to the game to be recognized in front of the community for all of their impact on all of Creek’s students. This recognition will be done prior to the game. The official retirement of James Glenn’s number 99 jersey will take place at Veterans Memorial Stadium during halftime.

At 19 years old, Glenn passed away on September 25, 1991 at Texas A&M due to an undiagnosed heart problem. During his time at Creek, Glenn was vice president of the student body, played varsity football and lettered in soccer two for years. He was an All-District place kicker for all of his three years on the varsity football team. Glenn was also honored his senior year for his citizenship by receiving the American Legion Award and a Clear Creek Medallion.

Glenn’s parents are still active members on the Clear Creek football program by attending games and being a part of the booster club. To further honor Glenn, The James Glenn Foundation raises money for scholarships for student-athletes in CCISD. Although his life was short, it was well-lived and he touched many lives.
