  • River Valley Football

The River Valley High Mustangs, in the southwest Michigan town of Three Oaks, lost eighteen football games in a row from 2003-2005. But it’s not just the number of consecutive games the Mustangs lost, it’s how soundly they were beaten. During this stretch, River Valley was outscored by its opponents by a total of 949 to 38, or an average of 53 to two per game. For a stretch of games in 2005, the team went 25 quarters without scoring a single point. Long Haul attended the Mustangs’ last game of the 2005 season to see how the team, and their fans, held up under such adversity.
