Fan Feedback: Sealy won its 4 championships in a row (1994-97) when there was only one state champion. Today, it is much easier, much more watered down.
LSG Response: We agree with you but in this day of "everyone gets a trophy," that is the way it is. The "Quad Squad" as they were called went 63-1 during their run of four consecutive state titles.
SEALY "Quad Squad" STATE CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES
1994 3A - Sealy 36, Atlanta 15
1995 3A - Sealy 21, Commerce 20
1996 3A - Sealy 36, Tatum 27
1997 3A - Sealy 28, Commerce 21
Overall, they have won 5 state championships in 6 appearances.
Sealy only has two Brotherhood Members and both were a part of those championship seasons:
- Jaylon Johnson - WR, DB, KR, PR (1994)
- Chris Noble - OL (1997)
Did you play football at Sealy (any year.) If so, sign up for The Brotherhood!
Now, each year there are 12 State Champions across the 6 classifications with 4 teams going to the playoffs from each district in Class 2A-6A. Before 1982, only one team per district went to the playoffs.
Separate Division I and II Championship were first played in 1990 but only at the 5A level (largest level at that time). Class 4A (2nd largest at the time) began playing the split championships in 1996. Class 3A and 2A started in 1998. Class 1A and 6-Man started in 2006.
Since the split championships started, Celina tied Sealy with 4 consecutive state championships.
1998 2A Division II - Celina 21, Elysian Fields 0
1999 2A Division II - Celina 38, Elysian Fields 7
