10 high school football teams of the MaxPreps era
MaxPreps breaks down the top single-season team performances over the last 10 years
The 2008 Aquinas squad was a team without a weakness. Explosive on offense and punishing on defense, the Raiders opened the season with an 11-point victory on the road against Elder (Cincinnati) and won each subsequent game by more than 20 points.
Quarterback Ryan Becker had plenty of offensive weapons at his disposal, including receivers Duron Carter and Dwayne Difton as well as running backs Giovanni Bernard and James White.
Led by linebacker Vincent Mauro and defensive back Cody Riggs, there was no shortage of talent on the defensive side of the ball either.
George Smith's squad capped off its perfect season with a stunning 56-7 drubbing of rival Lakeland.
