One of the goals set by the Calipatria High School football team for the 2001 season was to go undefeated.
That was a goal that ended Friday as Calipatria lost 22-20 to Antelope High School of Welton, Ariz.
While it was a heart-breaking loss, one of the bright spots for the Hornets was 17-year-old senior quarterback Jacob Steele.
The 5-foot-11, 160-pounder accounted for 155 of Calipatria's 289 total yards, rushing for 137 and scoring two touchdowns.
"I was really surprised that I rushed for that many yards. Our line isn't as big as it was last year, so I thought we'd throw a lot more this year," said Steele. "There were a few times when I broke to the outside where I was just amazed with how well we were running."
Down 16-6 in the third quarter, Steele's running helped Calipatria eventually take a lead.
With 2 minutes, 55 seconds remaining in the third, Steele capped a 20-yard scoring drive with a 3-yard run.
