The Texas City Rebels/Southern Belles Youth Football and Drill Team program began in 1968. The Rebel Booster Club organizers met in the spring of 1968 in answer to an ad ran by Orbie and Billie Harris. Over 50 interested parents met that evening at the Nessler Center. The next meeting saw the election of the first Rebel Booster Club Board. This board consisted of: Vance Slough- President; Emmett Golden- Vice President; Betty Harris- Drill Team Director; Eddie Costano- Player Agent; and Orbie Harris- Senior Athletic Director. Coaches for the first season were: Orbie Harris- Seniors; Mr. Robinson- Juniors; Mr. Goode- Sophomores; and Jack Rivera- Freshman.
