Hubbard Stadium, Smith Center, Kansas — The Redmen won five straight Kansas State High School championships and 67 consecutive games, which is a state record as well as the nation’s longest active winning streak. The Redmen faithful in this town of more than 1,600 begin taping their blankets to the grandstands to hold their seats on Wednesday; by Friday afternoon pick-up trucks circle the field. Each home game begins with an all-town tail gate sponsored by local businesses. By 9 p.m., folks retire to “fifth-quarters,” a series of post-game parties held at churches and homes around town to relive their kids’ glory.
