Football: Granada Hills comes up with the drive of the year

November 7, 2010 |  3:08 pm

There have been long scoring drives, but few compare to what Granada Hills pulled off in its 17-13 win over Birmingham.

The Highlanders got the ball on their own 12-yard line following a punt. It was their opening drive of the game, and they ran off 27 plays and more than 16 minutes before scoring on a one-yard touchdown run.

"It was remarkable," Granada Hills Coach Billy Parra said.

Added Birmingham Coach Jim Rose: "It was three yards and a cloud of turf. It was the longest drive I've ever seen."
