High School Team Held to -21 Total Yards in Loss

By - Kris Fletcher

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.

That ugly negative yardage number was spread out among five players. The teams two quarterbacks, who combined for -11 yards rushing, and three running backs, who amassed a total of -10 yards as a group.

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.

Class dismissed.


  1. Wow. Thats pretty bad. I wonder if Skyline's defense is actually that good, or if Samuell's offense is just that bad. I would guess a little of both.

  2. This gave me a good laugh first thing this morning. Even though its high school, as serious as those Texas school's are about their football, I wouldn't be surprised if Samuell's head coach was looking for a new job come Monday morning. That kind of awful showing probably got him fired.

  3. so damn sad! lol!

  4. Man. Bet those kids have to run their butts at practice next week.

  5. Can anyone say, the next generation of Alabama defense?

    Kidding, but I bet more than half of these players are now being seriously considered for marquee CFB teams in the country. It takes one game, and one spark, just like this to get noticed.
