Once every so often, throughout the fleeting passage of history, certain individuals and teams accomplish awe-inspiring feats which demand recognition; the Romans and their system of aqueducts, Sir Isaac Newton and his theory of universal gravitation, Jack Kilby's integrated circuit. Today I speak, of course, about our own resident eteamz football titans: the Byrnes Rebels and the John Curtis Patriots.
USA Today regularly publishes a rankings list compiled by Christopher Lawlor based on a school's strength of schedule, the level of competition in the state, and the quality of the athletes. This round, the Byrnes Rebels in Duncan, South Carolina secured the #2 spot, while the John Curtis Patriots in River Ridge, Louisiana clawed their way to #13. With a national population of approximately 17 million high school age kids (according to 2004 Census data), this is truly an impressive accomplishment.
All of us over here at eteamz are incredibly proud of your accomplishments. Keep on keepin' on and good luck with the rest of the season! If your team is also a top contender, let me know! Please email me with your team's URL at firstname.lastname@example.org.
