Eleven Streaks for 2010

1. - Longest winning streak. Patrician Academy comes into the season riding a 24 game winning streak. The Saints could run the tables again this season to extend the streak. There is not a team on their schedule that would be a clear favorite against them.

2. - Longest losing streak. Carver of Birmingham owns this by losing 30 in a row. If the Rams play well in the opening week they may have a shot at ending this thing against B.T. Washington, who have not beaten the Rams in three previous tries. The Rams do play two other teams that failed to win a game in 2009 when they meet Jackson-Olin and Talladega later in the season. Look for this streak to end this season.

3. - Regular season wins. Linden owns this mark by taking their last 22 in a row. Look for the big showdown in week four against Sweet Water to be the biggest test for the Patriots. If they get past this hurdle they should be in good shape the remainder of the season until they get to week ten with a rematch against the last team to defeat them in Brantley. This streak will be difficult to maintain for the Patriots with their tough schedule. Look for this streak to end somewhere this season.

4. - Region winning streak. Brantley sets atop the list with an amazing streak of 56 consecutive wins in region play. The Bulldogs have not lost a region game since the 2001 season and realistically they should have little trouble winning their region again in 2010. The game against Georgiana will be the toughest test they face this season. Look for this streak to continue.

5. - Region losing streak. Hazel Green owns a 32 game losing streak in region play. The Trojans will once again have a difficult time winning in region 8 as the other teams appear on paper to be better than them. The games against Sparkman and Grissom are the most realistic chances the Trojans have of breaking this streak and getting their name off this one. Look for this streak to continue.

6. - Longest home winning streak. At 20 wins in a row Handley owns the longest winning streak at home coming into the 2010 season. The Tigers play Clay County, Sweet Water and Leeds this year but all are on the road. That is a tough road schedule for any team. They should be in much better shape at home against competition that is less daunting. Look for this streak to continue.

7. - Consecutive winning seasons. The Clay County Panthers have had a winning record in 27 consecutive seasons coming into 2010. They move to a much tougher region and up to 3A this year but there is little reason to think they will not win. Look for this streak to continue.

8. - Consecutive 10 win seasons. Russellville holds on to this streak with ten straight seasons of ten wins or more. Everyone knows of their dubious record in title games but give them a lot of credit for getting there. They are always well coached and have plenty of talent so there is no reason to think this streak will not continue this season.

9. - Consecutive playoff seasons. The last time the Colbert County Indians missed the playoffs Reagan was starting his first year in the White House. Most of the current player's parents were in middle school. At 29 consecutive playoff appearances this one is simply amazing to say the least and with the return of Jackie Ferguson to guide the Indians who knows when this one will be broken. Look for this streak to continue. (Now where is that deed to the farm anyway.)

10. - Consecutive first round playoff wins. The UMS-Wright Bulldogs have won 16 consecutive first round playoff games. During the streak they have played in 3A, 4A and 5A and it doesn't seem to matter to them where they are but this season they settle into class 4A for another run at the title. During the streak they have won four titles and have an overall playoff record of 46-12 and have only lost twice in the second round. They play in a tough region with Thomasville and Jackson but look for this streak to continue in 2010.

11. Consecutive games scoring. At an amazing 293 games there is a possibility that this streak could go on forever. Well, maybe not but with the way offenses score in today's game it will be a monumental task to shutout the T.R. Miller Tigers. Realistically it could be years before this one falls.
