    50 Consecutive Winning Seasons

    I was just listening to the QC local TV broadcast. They mentioned that the Geneseo, Illinois high school football team just completed their 50th consecutive winning season.

    I'm curious whether any Iowa high schools are close to anything like that.

    I can assure you that Clinton High has not come anywhere close to that mark.

    Clinton has won the Most Odiferous Town in Iowa for longer than that.

    Emmetsburg is at least to 30. Since 1974 they've only missed the playoffs twice: 2007 (5-4) and 1982 (n/a). Depending on their '82 record, they could be at 39.

    Cedar Rapids smells worse. I've lived in both places. I feel I am qualified to make that determination.

    Harlan had like a 5 year stretch of not losing a football game. I believe they had a year where they won football Boys basketball boys track and baseball state championships

    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    The Geneseo HS football program emerged under Coach Bob Reade, who later when on to Augustana College, where we won 4 NCAA Div III championships in a row in the 1980's and 87% of all games. Reade was an innovator, developing a youth football program that fed the high school with a continuous flow of well-schooled football players. The high school continues with the tradition and successes.

    That sums it up. Is that Coach Bladt the Impaler?

    And thanks for the map. It helps.

    This is the biggest reason Harlan is continually good too. The high Schoolers all coach flag football and start instilling Harlans plays at a very young age. Good coaching from 4th grade on up helps.
