Active High School Football Win Streaks

When the Game Stands Tall

by Jeff Fisher

With the film When The Game Stands Tall set to open nationwide on August 22nd, all eyes will be focused back on De La Salle‘s (Concord, California) incredible 151 game win streak that is at the centerpiece of the film.

Independence High School in North Carolina came closest the the nearly invincible record with a win streak that ended with 109 straight victories in 2007.

So with that as the backdrop, we thought we’d take time to look at the longest current active streaks, plus the Top 15 all-time win streaks in 11-man football.

Pahranagat Valley in Nevada, an 8-Man program, has the longest current streak at 69 straight. Regina (Iowa) and Ithaca (Michigan) currently are tied for the longest in 11-man with 56 straight wins apiece.
