How impressive has John Curtis been over the years?
Here is a mind-boggling stat. Well, at least I thought so.
John Curtis, playing arguably one of the nation’s toughest schedules, dropped to 3-2 after Friday’s 29-28 loss toSt. Augustine.
How rare are two losses in the regular season for Curtis?
The last time Curtis lost two games in the regular season prior to this year was 2007. Prior to that, you would have to go all the way back to 1974.
It’s only happened four times total since Patriots’ coach J.T. Curtis began coaching in 1969. His first team went 0-10 and his 1972 squad went 6-4. (There was also the 1971 team that had the two ties and went 7-1-2.) Every other Patriots team has lost just one game or been undefeated in the regular season.
Curtis plays St. Charles in a District 11-3A game Friday. The Patriots have won 31 straight district games dating back to 2007.
