The crowd was chanting "We want a hundred" as it watched Centennial (Corona, Calif.)
rout Upland (Calif.) 86-56 in a California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section Inland Division semifinal Friday night.
What the crowd got was actually more than it asked for: 943.
OK, so the fans were talking about points and we are talking about yards. But the number is extremely significant, as Centennial set a national record for total offense, according to tweets from Eric-Paul Johnson of the Riverside Press-Enterprise
and the NFHS Record Book
The Huskies possibly broke the record of 937 set by St. Stanislaus (Bay St. Louis, Miss.) in 2012. The state record of 912 (which is now fourth all-time) was held by Happy Camp from a game in 1967.
Leading the way was star running back Tre Watson
, ran for 519 yards on 40 carries, including six touchdowns from distances of 29, 14, 93, 2, 4 and 57 yards. Earlier this season he ran for 465 and seven scores. Quarterback Robert Webber
threw for two scores and ran in another three.
Losing quarterback Tyler Hilinski
threw for seven touchdowns for Upland.
Centennial will face Vista Murrieta for the Inland Division title next week. See the MaxPreps national football playoff brackets
