    Collins High School can break out the history book in a big way.

    The school opened its inaugural football season Friday with a 48-16 thrashing of Sheldon Clark.

    Wide receiver Tavis Elzy said the dominating performance left him speechless.

    "Just unbelievable," he said. "I'm at a loss for words."

    The first football victory in school history came before the kickoff, when school namesake and former Gov. Martha Layne Collins herself flipped the coin that came up in favor of the Titans.
