Texas High School Football Team Sets Record, Breaks 1,000 Points in Season
4A-Division II state champs Aledo High School have more to brag about than winning a state championship. They've also become the first team to ever score 1,000 points in one season, smashing the previous record of 903 set in 2001.
Going into the state finals, Aledo had 985 points, giving them the record for most points scored in a season. The 38 - 10 win over Brenham in the UIL 4A-Division II final lofted them to a previously-unobtained national record of more than 1,000 points in a single season.
You might remember Aledo from a news story earlier this year when they beat another school 91-0, prompting a parent from the opposing team to file bullying claims. The claims were later dismissed as Aledo head coach proved he took several precautions to score less on the opposing team, including subbing in back-up players and running down the clock instead of running plays.
