Championship Streaks & Great Turnarounds on High School Football America Radio Show

by Jeff Fisher
High School Football America

If you missed last night's High School Football America radio show, it's now available free in our archives.

The show was an interesting one as we talked with one coach who is looking to make Texas football history and two coaches discussing incredible turnarounds.

Lake Travis head coach Hank Carter joined me to talk about his team's drive to make Texas football history by winning its fifth straight championship.

The Cavaliers, on a 20-game win streak and ranked #16 by MaxPreps, face Pearland Dawson tonight in the Class 4A Division I semifinals in the Alamodome.

Lake Travis hasn't lost a playoff game since November, 2006.

Also on the show: Bob Buckel, head coach at Powers Catholic (Flint, Michigan) and Harold Fairclough, head coach at Allentown Central Catholic (Pennsylvania).

Buckel's team went from 1-8 last year and a 2-4 start this year to win the Michigan Division 5 championship on Thanksgiving weekend.

Fairclough has brought the defending 3A state champs back to the Pennsylvania semifinals after a 2-5 start.  Allentown Central Catholic needs to beat #1 Archbishop Wood tonight to head back to Hershey next weekend.
