All-time highschool soccer wins in the direction of 2021

There’s a tightening at the top of the all-time American high school football wins list.

Louisville’s Male High School is now within 15 wins of No. 1 Valdosta, Georgia after being forced to lose seven wins in 2020 after using ineligible players. The Bulldogs, who won eight games in the fall and finished second in the Kentucky 6A standings, now have 914 all-time wins, putting them second all-time after Valdosta’s 929 wins.

Massillon Washington, runner-up in Ohio Division II, won his 900th game in 2020 and lost Valdosta’s lead with 10 wins. The Tigers, ranked 48th in the 2020-21 National High School Football America 100 rankings, have won 909 games since their first game in 1894.

The list below is based on the National Federation of High School State Associations record book combined with the results we found from the 2020-21 high school season. And before everyone reaches each other across the list, we acknowledge that there are other sources that have different amounts of winnings. We’ll be addressing that among the NFHS Top 50.

Two other Kentucky teams round out the top 5. Mayfield ranks 4th with 908 wins and Ft. With 906 W, Thomas Highlands is No. 5 in the overall ranking.

Pennsylvania has the most teams in the top 50. Keystone State has eleven teams on its list of all-time high school football wins, followed by Kentucky with ten.
