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!!
