SEATTLE -- One hundred fifty-one football games.
De La Salle High School's 39-20 loss to Bellevue (Wash.) ended the Spartans' record winning streak Saturday night in front of 24,987 people at Qwest Field.

Senior J.R. Hasty led the Wolverines, rushing for 271 yards and scoring four touchdowns. Bellevue also got a 37-yard touchdown run by sophomore quarterback Eric Block.

The Spartans -- from Concord, Calif., a suburban community east of San Francisco -- had not lost since falling in the North Coast Section championship game Dec. 7, 1991, when the current seniors on the team were in kindergarten.

Their average victory during the 12-season undefeated streak was by 38.2 points, and 43 of their 151 wins were shutouts. De La Salle also was crowned with five USA Today national championships during the span.

The Spartans broke the nation's previous longest winning streak at 72 games in 1997, going on to more than double it..........

I'll bet there was some high-quality sympathy sex going on after that, though.

If that were true, I would have been tempted to end the winning streak much sooner than that.

Course, chicks dig winners.........

Reminds me of Grishams Book, "Bleachers"

Great Book especially if you like HS Football.
