Lanier, Fox Tech Chili Bowl Gala

On any given year this time, thousands of fans would gather at Alamo Stadium to witness what nobody would then call "history in the making," but now exists as only a memory for so many since 1942: the Chili Bowl.

Fox Tech high school has begun its transformation into a magnet school for the West Side, going from hundreds of graduates to only one hundred, meaning too few students for a football team.

Graduates of Lanier high school and longtime football rivals Fox Tech gathered Saturday to "keep the tradition alive" at the grounds of the Freeman Coliseum:

"How have they changed?"

People dance, laugh and drink.

A graduate shares wise words of many years with youthful Major Julian Castro.
