The Best QB in the History of Texas High School Football?

You can't say enough about what Kyler Murray has done over the past three years at Allen High School, but the conversation begins and ends with 43-0 and 3 straight 6A State Titles. 

Murray ends his magnificent career with 10,366 passing yards, 4,267 rushing yards, 185 total TDs, while being the only two-time National Gatorade Player of the Year.

But stats are just stats, especially in a day and age where it is hard to control for types of offenses and quality of defenses, but one stat will never in the history of Texas High School Football be eclipsed: wins. As a sophomore, Murray came off the bench (due to injury) in the middle of the 2012 season to defeat the defending state champs, Southlake Carroll, 24-0. Since then, he has led his team to victory in the next 42 games straight, finishing off 2012 undefeated and State Champs, and then rounding out his junior and senior seasons with a pair of undefeated State Championship runs.

Kyler leaves High School never having lost a single game in three years of Texas 6A football. That has never been done and likely will never be repeated. 

Oh yea, and did I mention he's committed to play for Texas A&M???
