Back-to-Back-to-Back-to-Back-to-Back-to-Back-to-Back-to-Back...That's What Alcoa High School is Going After

We're now under the 75 days to go mark until the start of the 2011 season.  Yep...74 days and counting right now.

Today's fun fact comes from Tennessee, where the Alcoa Tornadoes will be seeking their 8th straight state championship.   Now one might think that eight straight would be close to a national record...but that's not the case.

If Alcoa can grab another title in 2011, the Tornadoes would move into a fourth place tie for the most consecutive championships in America.  St. Louis High School in Hawaii and Washington High in Sioux Falls, South Dakota hold the record with an incredible 14 state championships.

Another incredible stats...Massillon Washington in Ohio has had two seven year streaks from the mid 30's to the mid 50's.

One school that will be trying to move a step closer to the national list is Don Bosco Prep in New Jersey.  The Ironmen have won five straight New Jersey Group 4 Non-Public titles.
