Points scored, single game
   It's not all that unusual for a player to outscore the opposition all by himself in a high school football game, but Nick Finger took it to extremes on the first weekend of October in 2008. Finger scored eight touchdowns and added five two-point conversions as Millbrook fought off Tri-Valley 66-57.

   The senior running back carried 41 times for 485 yards, which ranked second in state history at the time of that monumental effort.
