Kirtland football on verge of area history

In 2008, The News-Herald published a list of the 10 most unbreakable records in area high school football history. The Kirtland football team is closing in on one of them.

In 1960, the Wickliffe Blue Devils scored 469 points  to set the area record for most points in the regular season.

Through seven weeks this year, Kirtland has 411 points, an astounding average of 58.7 points per game. At that pace, the Hornets would break the record by more than 100 points.

The Hornets' final three opponents -- Berkshire (3-4), Beachwood (5-2) and Independence (4-3) -- will likely have something to say about that.

Kirtland actually scored 482 points in 10 regular season games in 2012, so they already hold the record.

Good call. Thanks for pointing it out. Record book needs an update.
