Football: 1964 West

In the long history of Rockford Public Schools, the district has had just five undefeated football teams over a full season. West in 1964 was the first since a Rockford High School team went 8-0 in 1910 before the NIC-10 was even created. West needed a couple of last-second wins early to get its motor running and the team peaked with a 49-6 thrashing of defending conference champion Freeport. Since there were no playoffs in high school football until 1974, West had to rest on its 9-0 laurels when the season was finished.
