I know we've been doing a lot of high school football posts of late, but this one was too good to not pass along.
Last night in Dallas, Skyline High School defeated Samuell High by a final score of 54-0. However, that wasn't the telling number of the contest. The real story was that the Raiders held the Spartans to -21 yards of total offense for the game.

The defensive accomplishment is even more impressive when you consider the fact that Samuell didn't come into the game winless, like a lot of teams that suffer through extremely humiliating losses. The Spartans entered having won their final game in September, beating Dallas Sunset fairly easily, 35-14.
When I first caught wind of this drubbing, I half expected the winning team to be Dallas Carter. Obviously though, Samuell High is no Permian. Anyone not familiar with what I'm referring to should probably Google Friday Night Lights (book or film). While you're at it, crawl out from that rock you've been living under for the last decade.
