Smith Center Remains Undefeated, Unscored On

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

The Redmen of Smith Center High School not only dominated their season, they shut out every team they faced, becoming a pig skin powerhouse.

"We all have the same goals in mind, so it's a team deal, not a me deal," said senior Joe Windscheffel.

"We've basically been going for a shut out each game and we've done that so far," said another Smith Center player.

The Redmen have had a very good year. They're three-time defending state champs, but the year, not one team has managed to score a single point on them.

"It's not necessarily our goal, we're just playing hard and what happens, happens, " says Windscheffel.

10 games, 704 points to 0. The team launched onto the national stage after outscoring Plainville 83-0 last weekend. They scored 72 points in the first quarter alone, breaking a national record for first quarter points set in 1925.

But you won't hear this team bragging because, for them, it's not about shattering national records. "We know we're going to get scored on eventually and it's no big deal," said Roger Barta, Smith Center head coach. "It's about playing hard and playing together."

In Saturday's game, they beat St. John 64-0. That win gave Smith Center it's 51st straight victory. The Redmen move on to the next round of playoffs, set for Friday.
