Independence High School Wins 5th Straight NC Title

Independence High School in Charlotte, NC won its FIFTH straight NC 4AA championship game this past Saturday. The win extends the nation’s longest current winning streak to 77 games [that streak is the second longest streak in high school history].

I attended Independence High School from 1990-1993.

The Patriots, who are ranked #2 by USA Today, beat Hope Mills South View in Chapel Hill 41-7 in the NC 4AA Championship game. Heading into that game, South View only allowed 6.3 ppg. Independence, who averages 55 ppg….easily beat up that defense.

Joe Cox, the Pats’ QB, threw 4 TD passes to set the single season TD record in North Carolina. His 66 touchdown passes breaks the old record of 64 set by Independence’s [and current Florida Gator] Chris Leak in 2002. Cox needed one less game to break Leak’s record.

Congrats to the Pats!!
