St. Edward High School pitcher Jaret Edwards pitched what has to be one of the greatest games ever Thursday, striking out every batter in a perfect game. 

Edwards, a senior and George Washington commit, struck out all 15 batters he faced in the five-inning game, 11 of which went down swinging. His performance led St. Edward to a Division I championship over John Marshall. 

“He wasn't ahead on every batter. It takes extreme concentration because if you miss a pitch, it's a walk,” Eagles coach Matt Rosinski told Cleveland.com.

Edwards is no stranger to such kind of performances—he opened his season with a no-hitter.

“I usually don't smile on the mound, but when I got the last strikeout, I smiled,” Edwards said. “It was a pretty relieving moment.”
