As his name implies, Vic Prince was a part of Granbury Pirate football royalty.

He was coaching here in what folks now call the “glory days,” when the Pirates were considered one of the best teams across the entire state.

Prince, who passed away earlier this week at the age of 80, was an assistant under head coach Fred Weir when the Pirates enjoyed the best season in school history. In 1966 they reached the Class 2A state championship game, finishing 14-1 following a 29-7 loss to Sweeny.
