Say hello to the Loyola Marymount of Nevada high school eight-man football.
Pahranagat Valley football (comprised of kids from Alamo, Nev. pop. 900) is known for putting Texas Tech sized thumpings on its opponents but this weekend that was taken to another level as the Panthers faced Coleville in the state playoffs.
Let this sink in for a second. The final score was 128-74 and the Las Vegas Review Journal has the insane details of this 54-point ATS cover.
â€¢ Coleville scored on its first nine possessions
â€¢ Pahranagat Valley recovered five of six onside kicks in the third quarter
â€¢ Pahranagat Valley scored 17 touchdowns
More details that will make Mike Leach jealous after the jump…
â€¢ The Panthers outscored Coleville 44-8 in the third quarter
â€¢ Valley WR Brady Whipple caught six passes for 241 yards and five scores. He also returned two kickoffs for TDs.
â€¢ The Panthers coach “continued to onside kick in the third quarter to try to keep the lead.”
The Coleville QB completed 32 of 47 passes for 490 yards and 10 TDs.
Eight-man football games are known to end early due to inequalities between teams. The 45-point rule is usually in effect.
However, this was the playoffs where anything can happen, like 54-point outbursts.
