Le Grand already in state record book

By By Mark Tennis

Win or lose on Friday in the CIF Division IV state bowl game against Sierra Canyon of Chatsworth, the 12-0 Le Grand football team already can go down as one of the highest scoring in state history.

The Bulldogs enter Friday’s game averaging 58.5 points per game, which would be fifth-best on the all-time state list, produced by ESPNHS and Cal-Hi Sports. That average, however, is likely to go down after a state bowl game.

Ironically, Le Grand is part of the state-record total of 64.7 points scored per game by Central Catholic of Modesto in 2005. During that season, the Bulldogs lost to the Raiders 61-13.

For total points scored, Le Grand still needs 30 points to move in front of Pleasant Grove of Elk Grove as the highest scoring team of the season in the state. The state record of 880 points by Bloomington, set in 1994, is safe for another year.

Here is a look at where Le Grand stands in the Cal-Hi Sports state book:
