Caballeros coach Larry Hart had lost five state championship games before winning it all in ’75. He was asked if he felt jinxed. “Hogwash,” he said. “There’s no common sense to it.” His team beat Snowflake 14-13 for the long-awaited title, as John Bray rushed for 1,133 yards and 23 touchdowns over the season.
