Port Arthur shows off new threads

Five Memorial football players debuted the football team’s new uniforms during a Monday photo shoot for The Port Arthur News’ annual football section at Memorial Stadium.

Each jersey has the words “Port Arthur” inscribed across the chest to represent the city, much like Memorial’s boys basketball uniforms.

The section will be released Aug. 24, the final Saturday before the start of the regular season.

Players that showed off the look were Tavian Gipson, Trey Rodgers, Jordon Thomas, Jatavian Neal and Branden Chaney.
