KANSAS CITY, Mo. — For the second year in a row, a Kansas City area high school football team has won a national title.
The Christ Prep Academy Patriots (12-1), a team made up of homeschooled students from Kansas City, defeated the Noah Jaguars from Tulsa, Oklahoma, 21-13 Saturday at Vernon High School field in Florida in the National Homeschool Football Association Championship.
During the last two seasons, the team has compiled a 22-3 record, including a 5-1 mark during tournament games.
The win notched two milestones: The Patriots became the only team in the history of the tournament to win back-to-back titles, and Patriots quarterback/cornerback Noah Blair took home MVP honors both years, which is also a first.
The Lenexa-based team started in 2003.
