The Top Ten

1 Valdosta High School (Valdosta, Georgia)

We have the stats to prove it, we were the first High school football program to reach 900 wins.

no doubt

Home to the winningest high school football program in the United States, with a record 907 wins, 220 losses, and 34 ties. The Wildcats have won six national championships, 24 state championships, and 42 regional championships.

Best high school football team anywhere bar none!

2 De La Salle (Concord, California)

I Believe that this school has the best winning percentage in high school history. If I am wrong they have to be at least in the top 3 winningest high school programs by winning percentage just based on the record of 95% winning percentage of Bob Ladouceur. Valdosta winning percentage is a mere 79.6%. Hell if you play for over 100 years or you should get to 990 wins. In 100 years DLS will have probably 1150 wins.

Winning six national championships and appearing in 16 California State Championships and having the longest undefeated streak in high school football history winning 151 strait games from 1992-2005. They also produced player such as Maurice Jones-Drew and D. J Williams

Numbers speak for themselves.

Truly the Best of the Best. This school constantly seeks challenges outside their state to compete against the top schools in other states as well.

15 South Panola High School (Batesville, Mississippi)

Under-rated! They had 80+ win streak in early and Mid 2000's. Not to mention only games lost on both ends of that streak were state title games. They have had a number of players to go on to the NFL. At one time, it was stated that they had more speed than Ole Miss with 25+ players running 4.6 or better in the 40 yard dash. Hence the name, "University of South Panola."

They have had some great teams

16 Northwestern (Miami, Florida)

I'm from Pittsburgh pa so I have no clue about this team but just because AB went to this school Ima vote for them

Their most impressive win came in 2007 by beating Southlake Carrol and producing wide receiver Antonio Bryant

17 Clinton (Clinton, Oklahoma)

Winningest program in Oklahoma

16 state titles, including 13 in past 20 years along with 17 state title appearances in same time span
