Millard North (Omaha, NE) has been in the state championship 7 of the last 12 years and have won four—the latest was this year going 13-0, along the way the beat the best of the best in the state and some they had to beat twice: round 2 (7th rated team) & 3 (3rd rated team) of the playoffs were rematches and the championship game was a rematch against the #2 rated team---the states all-time leading rusher was MN’s QB Iaasac Aakre, also Gatorade player of the year for the state. He has also lead the Mustangs to two championships 2010 & 2012---This team is one of those for all-time greats( right there with MN’s 2003 team)

Thank You!!!!!
