It’s been more than 1,500 days since Houston’s Scarborough High School won a football game. That’s 44 losses in a row, stretching back to September 2009. The seniors on the team have never won a high school football game; they were in eighth grade the last time the Spartans notched a win.
But for a team that hasn’t won a game since before the iPad was invented, the Spartans remain calm and, you could even say, oddly confident. They’re convinced that a win is coming and the streak will be broken.
