Chance Nevarez kicked 12 extra points to move six away from the national record by punctuating all 12 of Aledo’s touchdowns in the Bearcats’ dominant 84-7 win Friday over Fort Worth Wyatt at Clark Stadium.
Aledo (6-0, 3-0 District 6-4A) continued its torrid scoring pace and took a 70-7 lead into halftime, running away with it from the opening kickoff.
Entering the game, Nevarez was eight consecutive extra points away from overtaking Jerry Adams of Lowell High in Michigan to move into second place, but with Aledo’s offense in gear, it didn’t take long. He blew past Adams just 15 minutes into the game when the Aledo offense scored its eighth touchdown with 7:54 left in the first half.
He now sits only seven away from the 135th consecutive extra point he needs to break Kim Braswell’s record of 134 straight, set from 1965-68 for Avondale Estates High in Georgia.
With the pace at which Aledo is scoring, he’ll likely break the record next Friday when the Bearcats host Fort Worth Western Hills at Bearcat Stadium. Aledo has outscored its opponents 394-54 this season and averages 65.6 points per game.
Officials instituted a running clock for the second half.
