with the ball in both videos have their knees down on the ground.

This was something else. This was the Western Pennsylvania Class AAAA (largest classification) 2007 Championship Game.
This play made ESPN, and is just about everywhere on the internet. The last minute or so of regulation leading up to this play
with 9 seconds left made this the best WPIAL Class AAAA Championship Game ever. This play topped it off. Unfortunately
for Gateway, they missed an extra point kick in overtime and Pittsburgh Central Catholic won the game. Even the overtime
was exciting as both teams scored touchdowns with 4th and inches. Check it out: Click Here!

"Nine not enough" Source: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette; Monday, October 16, 2006
In Arkansas Friday, Hughes and East Poinsett County both came into their game with
winless records. They also were defenseless. Kendric Smith of Hughes set an Arkansas
state record when he scored nine touchdowns, but it wasn't enough as Hughes lost to East
Poinsett County, 73-72, in overtime. Smith broke the state record of eight touchdowns, set
in 1919 and tied in 2003. Also in the game, East Poinsett quarterback Brett Hardin had
835 all-purpose yards.
"Back's 658 yards no national mark" Source: Associated Press; Sunday, October 1, 2006
Delbarton, WV - Paul McCoy of Matewan High School ran for 658 yards in a 64-0 win
against Burch, but, believe it or not, may not have set a national record with his feat.
The total tops the National Federation of State High School Association's listed record of
619 yards set by Ronney Jenkins of Oxnard, CA, in 1995. But high school historian Doug
Huff said the recognized record is 739 yards by John Giannantonio of Netcong, NJ, in
1950 against Mountain Lakes.
72 points scored in 1st quarter!
In what’s believed to be a new record, the Smith Center High School football team
scored a whopping 72 points in the first quarter against rival team Plainville, and went
on to an 86-0 victory Tuesday night. The Redmen’s 72 points is believed to be the
record for most points scored by a high school team in a single quarter, according to
the Salinas Kansas Journal. The defending state champion, Smith Center has rolled
to a 9-0 record so far this season, all shutouts. They have outscored opponents 640-0,
with an earlier 69-0 win over the same Plainville team they played Tuesday night,
according to The Associated Press. “It happened so quickly. It wasn’t really something
we were thinking about whatsoever,” Smith Center Principal Greg Koelsch told ABC
News. Though most media coverage has painted the 12-minute, 72-point grab as a
trouncing or triumph, the tenor of the Redmen’s response is anything but celebratory.
“Our coaches do a good job of keeping things humble, keeping the boys humble,” said
Koelsch. “At no point do we wish to run up the score on anyone. We’re not looking at
this like, ‘We stuck it to them.’”
