Blowout a little over the top....

So I'm cruising the rivals.com when I come across an article on Estero High School in Florida. Last week they played Naples High week and lost by 13...not 13 points...13 touchdowns. The final score you ask? 91-0.
The schools aren't far off in size: Estero has about 1,400 high schoolers, Naples roughly 1,700. But the pedigree of the football programs couldn't be more different.

Estero is rebuilding from the lowest level and their coach is in his firt year with teh school. He has inherited a program that had simply crumbled. Naples High is the reigning state Class 3A champion, and a contender to win the title again. Naples has several players committed to Division I schools like Ohio State already and a roster filled with talent at every position. Estero has no college prospects and only about 25 healthy or so players remaining on its roster. Estero's starting free safety is listed as 150 lbs. After viewing the youtube film I beg to differ.

Naples led 70-0 at the half. It was David versus Goliath and David didn't have a stone to throw. The national record books are somewhat incomplete, but a score like 91-0 won't register on the list of all-time defeats. It wasn't even the most lopsided score in the country this weekend, in Ohio, Beechcroft beat Centennial 96-0,taking several knees on plays in the fourth quarter to avoid triple figures.
