Caldwell scored 35 first half points Oct. 9 to hand Salado Eagles their 19th straight loss under coach Brent Graham by the score of 56-13. The last time Salado varsity Eagles won a football game was on Oct. 11, 2013.
While it seems an eternity since the Eagles have won a game, Salado is not even close to the records set by other Texas high school football teams in terms of losing. Houston Scarborough, earlier this season, broke a 59 game losing streak. Last year, at 0-10, Houston Scarborough actually went to the playoffs because their district only had four teams.
Dawson was 0-43 until it beat Texas Win in September and Grand Saline broke its 31-game streak beating Kerens.
Salado has three chances left to notch a win in 2015 and one of those is on the road against a top 10 team, LaGrange on Oct. 30.
The Eagles will host Giddings this week with kick off at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 16. The Giddings Buffaloes are 6-0 coming off of a bye week before they open district here in Salado. The Buffaloes beat Gonzales and Wimberley on the road 28-0 and 35-24 respectively. In their first home game, they escaped Bellville 28-26 and then shellacked Columbus 69-31 in a home game. Giddings got past Sealy 38-35 and beat Cuero handily 45-26 on the road.
Caldwell’s Joseph Crnkovic had touchdown passes of 33 yards and 45 yards to get the Tigers out to an early 14-0 lead.
