I know I went beyond the scope of the original question but it was the combination of events that really made the HD accomplishment special.  I can't think of the championship without putting it into the context of that time that I won it.
no, I mean winning the D1 title with Army is an achievement. I think the context is great.

When I first got to D1 I took Denver in Phelan.  They were really horrible.  In my 3rd season I had a losing record but won the CT and then upset #1 Texas in the 1st round.  That was about 3 years ago, and  I have sadly not achieved anything that good since.

When I created an alias called billy_graham, took over Nazareth, and only recruited players with names from the Bible. In the 4th year, we won the National Tournament. Also a 69 game win streak at Palm Beach Atlantic.

OK, the Billy Graham thing can't be true.  But if it is, that is the winner for weirdest/coolest approach I've ever heard of.

You deserve extra points for just thinking of it.

I remember Chapel talking about the Billy Graham thing in a thread a long time back.  Gotta believe it's true and had to be very difficult too, I'd imagine.

The 69 game winning streak would be (I believe) the second longest of all-time in HD (haven't heard of any longer and I'm sure if it had been done in the last few years, we would have seen a thread about it).  Way back when, Lostmyth put together back-to-back 35-0 seasons, so he won at least 70.  No telling how many he won to open the third season of that run, but I do know that he used the "superteam" approach to put together his run.  12 juniors for the first title, 12 seniors for the second.  Since he would have had a team of probably all freshmen the next season, I wouldn't think that he won too many more to start the year.  Considering that Chapel was playing under the "no more than 6 to a class" limitation, in retrospect, his winning streak may have (and probably was) more impressive than LM's.  Fine, fine job of coaching AND team building.  Just my opinion....
