The De La Salle High School football team of Concord, California lost its first game in 12 years this Saturday. It’s streak of 151 consecutive wins ended against Bellvue High School of Bellvue, Washington, and was the longest in American football sports history. De La Salle beat opponents by an average margin of 38.2 points during the streak. The amazing streak created cult following for Bob Ladouceur, the team’s coach, who now has a 287-15-2 record at the school in the last 26 years. The program at De La Salle, a private all-boys school located in the San Francisco suburb of Concord, has inspired a Wheaties box, two books, a documentary, and national telecasts of their games. Last month, the streak also earned the Spartans a seven-page feature article in Sports Illustrated.
