The Cavalier football team has yet to allow an opponent to score a point. They wrap up the season at Four Winds on Saturday, October 19th.

Brock Robbins, Cavalier junior linebacker, "Our coaches say if they don't score, they can't win.”

It’s one of the most impressive stats in high school football. Six games played, zero points allowed.

Ryan Chrest, Cavalier senior safety, "We've been really working hard on our defense, trying to make sure no one scores and that has really been a vocal point. Everybody has been working hard and grouping together on tackles and really working hard to make sure they don't even get a first down."

Sandy Laxdal, Cavalier head football coach, "They've really been a focused group. They come everyday, they're a blue-collared bunch of kids that really work hard, day in, day out."

With one game remaining, the 2013 fall has been a magical one for Cavalier, ranked number one in nine-man throughout without giving up a single point.

Laxdal, "That is something that they really stress each Friday night when they go out. That's something they want to do and so far we've been very successful in doing that."

Justin Gibson, Cavalier senior defensive end, "Play hard. Keep one thing in mind is the shutout. Keep that zero up on the scoreboard and do that to every team."

Although the shutout is nice, the ultimate goal for the team remains the same.

Jeff Stith, Cavalier junior defensive end, "Winning that state championship, we all dream about it, we all strive to get it, we feel like we can get it this year and we feel like we have the potential, that we will get it this year."
