What would you say were the signature wins for each, and how would you rank them?

 

For SLC, probably blowing out Allen 3 years in a row.

For LT, I'm not sure.  I didn't follow 4A football during the time they had their run.

I'd give LT the nod as far as ranking the two, just because they won 5 in a row.  They're the only Texas team in any classification who has ever done that.

This is going to be long and self serving, hopefully somewhat relevant. I am old (74).  But for 35 or more years I went out of my way in a career of very heavy travel around the U. S. to see the

DLS has lost more kids transferring out than they have gained and I can't think of any kids that came in and played a significant amount of time or had major impact post streak.  Maybe there was a sma

Only the year 2016 can you make the case for BG having a superior schedule.  2014 Gorman barely escaped 3 opponents .  They also were beaten by another trinity team ( SM ? ) , but the ref blew the call .  I don't remember what year though . MD schedule in 2019 imop was superior and 2018 likely as well .

Doesn't Buford have some stints as well?

Yes.  The only problem with Buford is that they weren't at the highest level and people here seem to only recognize those programs playing in the highest level.  I think they could probably hang with any team in their same enrollment size But it wouldn't be a sure thing against the larger schools, at least not consistently.

Back when Evangel Christian was stacking their roster like teams do today they had a great run:  (1997, #12), 1998, #3) and 1999, #2)-at USA Today...The 1999 Evangel team won a share of the MNC winning several polls including FOX Sports who was doing polls back then. Evangel probably averaged 15-20 D1s per year during that stretch. I think the 1999 team had over 20. ...West Monroe was pretty stout also back then.

EVANGEL CHRISTIAN ACADEMY

Evangel Christian Academy named FOX Sports 1999 National Football Champions

By Bigger Faster Stronger
Published: Spring 2000
Evangel Christian Academy was crowned 1999 National High School Football Champions by Fox Sports after a hard fought victory over West Monroe. The game was billed as the biggest in Louisiana history. West Monroe was also undefeated in the 5-A ranks and coached by Don Shows. It was amazing as 42,000 attended the game.
Immediately after the game, Fox Sports wanted to have Midland Lee from Texas, the USA Today National Champions, play Evangel on national television to crown a true national champion. Now that would have been something but for a variety of reasons the game did not materialize.
Brock Berlin, Evangel’s QB, was selected as the game’s MVP in their 20-14 victory. Brock also has been selected as the Gatorade Player of the Year. Brock has already finished his graduation requirements and so he enrolled at the University of Florida in January in order to take full advantage of spring football for the Gators. Brock earned great grades and has demonstrated remarkable leadership by example. Brock’s work ethic and vision are without question an eleven. He is just outstanding in every area. Brock Berlin is our choice for this year’s BFS Athlete of the Year award. His complete story will appear in a future journal. Our congratulations to Evangel and Brock Berlin.

one OOS game played. Beat St X in Ohio 25-22. X finished 3rd in Ohio

Plus a slew of college and NFL players

 3rd is probably a little high lol. They got drilled by Colerain in the regional final, so they’d fall somewhere in the 5-8 range at best.

Yeah just going by crapPreps. I have no idea where they ended. Usually if it’s Maxpreps it’s wrong. Except in the case of Escambia being 93rd in Florida when they bulk whipped the 10th best Louisiana team. That was true. Lol.

Southlake Carroll 2004-2006, 48-0, 3 State Championships

Those teams were really good........complete packages. Better than the Lake Travis teams.

SLC also won pieces of MNCs in 2004 and 2006......

John Curtis would have given SLC a game in 2006, in my opinion. That Curtis team was stacked including 5* ATH Joe McKnight. Curtis beat Hoover that year who was Preseason #1 nationally.

Found an article awhile back... 

Detailing the start of Thomas County Central's state title Streak start... 

1992 season they had a rough start going 0-5 losing to: 

Colquitt County 

Crosstown rival Thomasville 

Doughtery 

Westover 

And Cairo 

Then after that they went on a 10 game win Streak including the state title game. 

No one saw it coming. Ed Pilcher had lit a fire in the Yellow Jackets after an 0-5 start 

They went on a tear through every team they played. 

Finished the season 10-5 ranked #9 in state.

 

1993 the Streak continues:

'93 the Jackets went 13-2 losing to Doughtery and Westover yet again. But upsetting Colquitt County. 

This season they pretty much dominated and got to stay home for the state title game... 

By that I mean the state title game was hosted in Thomasville....  where they played their crosstown rival Thomasville HS in a packed stadium with over 38K attendance. 

Central Won in a low scoring knock down drag out fight 14-12.

'94 was supposed to be a tough year for the Jackets and thanks to having Colquitt County as game 1 for the 4th year in a row it would seem that way...(Colquitt would finish Nationally ranked in the top 10 this season) the Packers Trampled the Jackets in their own stadium 27-6. 

Central would rebound after this and finish the season 12-3 beating Dalton (GA) for their 3rd consecutive state title 32-7. 

1995 they got upset in the 2nd round by Kendrick (Columbus,GA) another program that was once pretty good but started sinking because their coach left and more schools started opening dipping into their already limited talent pool... but that's a story for another day... 

1996 Central won another state title beating Lakeside (Dekalb/Atlanta) which is surprising I didn't even know that till today... because Lakeside now is... welll.... a schedule filler... but Central went 14-1 with their lone loss being to Colquitt 28-14... they beat Lakeside 42-9 

1997 they went 15-0 beating Marist in game 1 of the Corky Kell Classic 34-16,beating Spencer from Columbus 53-0 in game 2  and Colquitt 10-7 in game 3.

After that they would beat every team they played by atleast 2 TD's until the state title game they narrowly avoided being upset in OT by the Burke County Bears. 

After that they wouldn't make anymore deep runs until 03.... 

In 03 they got upset in the semi-finals by Marist. They finished 12-2 losing to Valdosta and Marist

Valdosta that year went 11-4 losing in the state title game to Camden County.

Hoover and Rush Propst really shit the bed in 2006......Hoover had so much hype that year and it was probably Rush's most talented team at Hoover. They were loaded with Alabama and Auburn commits, 6 or 7 of them, if I remember correctly. They didn't even win state....lost to John Curtis and Prattville.

Rush was more interested in hamming it up for the MTV Two-A Days series than coaching. He let Hoover down in a big way.
