Ohio's Highest HS Football Winning Percentages All-Time

I have updated this tables, showing the all-time highest winning percentage teams in Ohio HS football-- to reflect the results of games this weekend-- for Wyoming, Moeller, Massillon Washington, Steubenville, and Maria Stein Marion Local, and (last week) Mogadore-- and also added in the all-time results for Canfield South Range-- who moves into the Top Five all-time, in this updated table:

As one can see, if compared with the table before this weekend, the rank order did not change, but Wyoming, CSR, and MSML increased their winning percentages with wins this weekend, while Moeller, Massillon Washington, Steubenville, and Mogadore saw their winning percentages fall (ever so slightly), with losses.

If ties are excluded from results, Wyoming remains #1 all-time; if ties are included Moeller remains #1 all-time-- but Canfield South Range would now be #2 on that list (just slightly ahead of Warren Western Reserve).

South Range should be 5th on that list
 
Very impressive list, it is extremely difficult to withstand the test of time.

Here is the #'s for West Jefferson through 2022:
* 629 wins, 305 losses, 24 ties for a 66.91% winning percentage
* 96 seasons - 72 winning seasons, 21 losing seasons, 3 five hundred seasons
* Only 1 losing decade, 1950's
* Had a 42 consecutive winning seasons from 1958 to 1999 (322-86-7, 78.43%)
*** During this 42 year winning streak WJ had 21 league titles, 11 playoff appearances in 28 years and 3 State Titles in 1962, 1976 & 1982 with 4 different head coaches although the 4th only coached at WJ for one season.

Since the playoffs began in 1972 (51 seasons), WJ is:
* 393-158-4 for a 71.17% winning percentage
* 25 playoff appearances with the 2 State Titles in 1976 & 1982, losing to the eventual state champs 7 times and eventual state runner-up 5 times

It is so difficult to develop & grow a football program to a perennial power, it may be more difficult to continue it from one head coach to another. In the end, it takes the whole community. No one player or coach is bigger than the program. Congratulations to the players, coaches, administration, parents, family, alumni and communities of the teams on this list.

I rarely get involved in those discussions, just find it funny that they count for some and don't for others.

Carry on.


JLP - you want to come across as always a victim. The poll thing is only part of your beloved school fan base problem. The biggest problem(s) is the lack of class, character, how one conducts their business - ie recruiting…those are far greater problems with you & the some of the fan base of your beloved school.

You should read the Marion Local-Kirtland thread. You and a few of your buddies could learn quite a bit from those two programs…….and they play peewee football.

Don’t try & drag me into your pool of poo and keep this thread from being about you.

Ever read a "non protected" Massillon thread? Can't have it both ways sweetie.

Bingo! JLP trolls just to insult people. I for one have taken his bait and gotten out of character. This JLP dude represents the worst of the worst when it comes to posting on a public forum. The worst part is that he doesn’t represent what “True” Massillon fans are. Massillon fans are knowledgeable and passionate. No fan base is more loyal. Don’t let JLP paint a negative picture of a great group of people.

Do you feel you represent what "true" Steubenville fans are? I'm only interacting with YOU because of comments you made first. Without this derogatory comments I wouldn't even be aware of your existence.

You don’t get it bro. I admittedly acknowledged that you, and your words, get me out of character. You are the most abrasive, confrontational and bombastic fan this site has ever seen. And those horrible character flaws you have, cause folks to go on the offensive. The number and severity of your attacks and insults makes you nearly impossible to ignore. My Fathers lesson of “don’t suffer with fools” is hard to do where you’re concerned. You seem like a very angry man and it gets worse every championship weekend. I know it’s been over 50 years, but there has to be some good things going on in your life that trumps your Tigers winning a title on the field. I’m curious, we’re you even alive when WHS won their last AP Championship.

You didn't answer the question.
 
I didn’t see a question directed at me. Ask again
I did see a question …. No, I probably don’t represent all Steubenville fans. I’m probably a little too “fanatic”….. but your hate, and personal insults and juvenile attacks are way beyond just being fanatic or a rabid fan. You’re way too brutal and lack any true decency. But, you and your fellow Yappites are probably laughing your bums off at those attacks and insults. Hey, it is what it is. Hell, even I laugh at some of the stupid shet in your diatribes of insults.

This is a great table-- with some very useful data-- although, at the risk of re-opening Pandora's box on this again, Wyoming started playing in 1919. I'm not sure why the OHSAA only chooses to show Wyoming's record as going back to 1931 (it doesn't reduce Wyoming's winning percentage, to reflect the data back to 1919-- in fact, the data above almost certainly includes ALL of Wyoming's games-- but is simply mis-labeled by the OHSAA as being for the period from 1931-2019)... but, either way, Wyoming is currently atop the winning percentage list...

I'm not sure why Moeller does not appear on this list... and Maria Stein Marion Local is piling up wins at such a prodigious rate that I fully expect to see them topping this list, some time in the next ~decade...
