Rockdale vs Giddings
A powerful Giddings eleven took the Rockdale Tigers by surprise in a 22–8 win. After a slow first period the Buffs tallied and held the lead throughout the game.  An alert pass interceiption by Ronnie Seelke set up the only Tiger tally: a ten yard scamper by Ronny Menn.  The second half brought two more Giddings touchdowns and a hard earned victory.

Rockdale vs Elgin
The spirited Elgin Wildcats handed the Tigers its second straight defeat, 32–8.  The Tiger defense was unable to contain Larry Larson, who personally accounted for 26 Wildcat points.  The Tigers were able to penetrate inside the 20 twice but were not able to score.  The Wildcats held a 20–0 half time lead.  The Tigers fought back with an aerial attack led by Ronny Menn.  A 35 yard toss to Billy Pate put the Tigers on the board. Menn also connected for the P.A.T. 
Elgin 32 – Rockdale 8
The Rockdale Tigers took good advantage of their Eagle hosts and chalked up their first victory of the 1961 season, 10–7.  After two brilliant goal line stands, the Tiger eleven scored on Ronnie Menn's 5 yard scamper.  Again the Tigers drove to  another tally: a 17 yard pass to end Ronnie Seelke.  The Eagles finally tallied on a 64 yard run by Isaias Ahmazan.  The P.A.T. was successful which left the score
Rockdale 12 – Georgetown 7
Powerhouse Marlin buried Rockdale's underclassmen 38–0 rolling 360 yards on the ground while nailing the Tigers to a scant 18.  Marlin's veteran 185 pound line ripped open the Tigers' sophomore and junior forwards with ease to allow half backs Jones and Greensage to amass more than 100 yards each.  The giant Bulldog line checked the Tigers to a minus –4 yard rushing during the first half, and the Marlin forwards choked off a Rockdale threat in the second half by camping in the Tiger backfield with quarterback Ronny Menn.  Menn was still able to complete 9 of 16 pass attempts for 61 yards spelling the Tiger's only offensive success
Marlin 38 – Rockdale 0
The Rockdale Tigers took a long desired and deserved victory over the Taylor Ducks, 3–0.  The first half held no promise for either team as the ball changed owners many times.  The Tigers, going in as the underdog, proved their worth as they drove within field goal distance and Ronnie Menn came through with a 30 yard field goal.  This proved to be the deciding factor as Rockdale came out of the battle the victor.
Rockdale 3 – Taylor 0
The Rockdale Tigers journeyed to Bellville and were solidly surprised by the score of 26–7.  The Tigers drew first blood on Menn's one yard scamper.  This was of no value however, as the Brahmas scored 4 straight tallies.  The Tigers were unable to contain Larry Wiestruck and Laery Johnson who personally accounted for all of the Brahma touchdowns.  The victor in a hard fought battle

Hearne
Last quarter efforts by the Rockdale Tigers prevented a shut out, but the Hearne Eagles jolted the Blue and Gold 34–6 in the District opener for 19AA.  Rockdale going scoreless through three periods flew back at the Eagles with a 92 yard kickoff return by halfback David McKinnon.  The 145 pound Senior, side–stepping two would–be tacklers at the eight yard line followed his interference through the middle of the Hearne defense.  The hole made by the eleven left only two Eagles to pursue McKinnon.  Unable to catch him, the Tiger back made the tally with 6 minutes and 49 seconds left in the game.  The conversion was stopped leaving the final score
Hearne 34 – Rockdale 6
A&M Consolidated
The Surprising Rockdale Tigers took their first district win over the Tigers of A&M.  The first tally came early on a 35 yard pass from Laurence to Menn.  A&M threatened but the Tigers held strong.  Then Don Laurence quickly accounted for 13 points as the Rockdale Tigers won by the score of 20–0 and remained in contention for the district title.
Rockdale 20 – A&M Consolidated 0
Cameron
The Rockdale Tigers broke a long jinx and solidly trounced the Cameron Yoemen 16–0.  The Tigers opened the scoring on Ronnie Menn's 8 yard scamper late in the second quarter.  After holding the Yoemen on the 5 yard line the Tigers took over and drove within field goal distance where Menn again put the score 10–0.
The Yoemen put on a good scoring drive late in the fourth quarter but the Tiger forward wall held again.  The Tigers tallied again on Donnie Laurence's 5 yard sneak.  The Tigers took the victory
Rockdale 16 – Cameron 0
Caldwell
Tiger Donnie Laurence stole the show as he led the Rockdale Tigers to a 19–15 victory over the Caldwell Hornets.  The first tally was put over by Ronnie Menn on a 20 yard scamper.  The Hornets took a short lived lead as the Tigers continued to drive.  Laurence and Menn connected to put the score to 19–8.  The pigskin changed hands a number of times but the Hornets finally tallied,  The score remained
Rockdale 19 – Caldwell 15
