Are bragging rights ever firmly established?  My QB was hurt, the field was sloppy, the refs were bad, etc etc. are many of the sometimes legitimate beefs after games end and outcomes are decided.  But one thing for sure is that the scoreboard is indisputable.

On that note there were a number of Texas State Championships and high profile National Slugfests held around the country on December 17th.  Some folks are getting a lump of coal, while others are partying like it's 1999. Below are 7 of the most outstanding individual efforts that led their respective teams to victory.
