Sandusky writes history; Marine City’s streak turns 18 | USA Today High School Sports

Kids, sit down for a history lesson — Sandusky style.

On Friday night, the Redskins took it to Capac, winning 56-0 in front of a home crowd. With that win, Sandusky earned its second perfect regular season in program history, going 9-0 for the first time since 1985.

Want more history? Alright, here you go.

Sandusky has also scored 365 points this season, which is the most in program history. On the other side of the ball, the Redskins defense has allowed just 94 points — the lowest since the 1991 team that allowed 79 points.

“We don’t really look at that type of stuff, this is 2015,” Sandusky head coach Craig Jacobson said. “But we brought (the 1985 team) back to honor them against Harbor Beach and a lot of those guys got to watch them play, so we knew about that team.”

While the team history doesn’t really shake up Jacobson, a record set by senior running back Chase Tucker earned his praise. By scoring twice on Friday, Tucker set a single-season scoring record with 22 touchdowns.

“Chase is a hard runner, he’s a competitor and he’s part of this team that have a lot of guys that block up front for him,” Jacobson said. “We really don’t pay attention to the records, but anything he accomplishes is well deserved.”

The next team in Sandusky’s path will be determined during “Selection Sunday” at 7 p.m. on Fox Sports Detroit. Until then, the Redskins can take a minute to look back and use the history they’ve written as motivation.

“I’m extremely happy,” Jacobson said. “I’m really happy for our kids and community — this has really brought the community together and our kids have felt and witnessed that. They’ve worked hard every day.

“Now we just got to go into playoffs and take care of business.”

Marine City’s streak turns 18

If Marine City’s playoff streak was a person, they could now legally vote, smoke, enlist in the military and play the lottery.

After erasing a 21-7 deficit to Division 2 Warren Cousino (5-4), the Mariners won 42-27 for their sixth win and a guaranteed playoff spot. Not only have the Mariners reached the playoffs 18 straight seasons, but they’ve been in the postseason 23 of the last 25 seasons.
