High School Football's Active Win Streaks

by Jeff Fisher
The High School Football Huddle


With South Panola (MS) and Maryville (TN) losing on back-to-back days last December, Smith Center of Kansas owns the nation's longest active high school football win streak. South Panola's streak, which is the third longest all-time in high school football ended at 89, while Maryville ended at 74.

Next month, you'll be able to learn a lot more about the Smith Center Redmen when New York Times write Joe Drape's book Our Boys comes out on August 18th. Drape moved to his family to the small town of 1,931 to do the book. You can learn move about Drape's book at www.joedrape.com.

Thanks to Stephen Spiewak at MaxPreps for catching the fact that I missed Wayne Hills in Jersey with the second longest active win streak in America. 52 straight for the Patriots!

Does anyone have a list of the longest losing streaks? If not, what are some of the longest steaks still going?
