Texas high schools play 12 overtimes on Friday night 

By Jeff Greer

How’s this for an instant classic?

A pair of Texas high schools took a tightly-fought football game all the way to a 12th overtime on Friday night. Jacksonville High beat Nagodoches, 84-81, with a 19-yard field goal.

The game lasted 5 1/2 hours and broke nine-overtime record held in the National High School Record Book by two Washington state teams.

Boy, I wouldn’t want to pay that Nagodoches High electric bill this month.
