HOUSTON, Tx- It's quite an accomplishment to earn a boy scout badge but scratch that, how about every single merit badge offered by the organization?

Houston Christian High School senior John Stoetzer Gray did just that by earning all 138 Boy Scout of America merit badges.

"I got to 100 merit badges and I said, I got this far might as well get them all," said Gray.

Boy Scouts of America has been around since 1910 and in that 100-year history only 271 other scouts have earned every badge.
