By sheer numbers of teams and players Texas would win that argument. But if you are looking at rankings there isn't a Texas team in the top ten! Allen and DeSoto are 13 and 14 respectively. I'd put Ohio's best against any other state.

There is a difference between best TEAMS and best players.Texas has the best PLAYERS year in and year out.

And this can be proved and is proved every year.If you can't figure this out I feel bad for you.

Texas has the best players by far!

Every year it is proved that PA has the best wrestling in the nation and Ohio is 2nd.

You can't go by who has the best COLLEGE teams,but what State has the best college wrestlers(What State they came from)

And how many wrestlers get a Div1 scholarship.

Well you can do the same thing with football PLAYERS bird brain.

I've seen 185 different Ohio teams play. 158 different PA teams play. And 73 different Texas teams play.

I've seen 208 games in Ohio, 210 games in PA, and 58 games in Texas. Most of the Texas games have been state championship games either at Cowboys/AT&T Stadium, NRG Stadium, or the Alamodome. Only 2 games at SMU in the playoffs, a playoff at Plainview, Texas and a regular season game in Memphis, Texas.

Compared to comparable championship teams in Ohio in the same year to championship teams in Texas... Texas wins more often than not. You may scoff at Allen because of their 800-member marching band, 50,000-attendance championship games, $62 million stadium, etc. But they also are really really good. Imagine if the entire city of Cincinnati had one high school and every player of any significance inside the district attended the public school. That's what Allen would be. A city that should have 8 or 10 high schools has only one. And it's by design. Frisco to the west has 8 high schools and is in line to open three more over the next few years. Meanwhile Allen sends almost 5,500 kids to the high school and freshman annex.

So, yes, they're going to be better most of the time than anyone Ohio can put up. Even big parochial from Cincinnati or Cleveland. Then you have Katy. In a district with 10 high schools and also building their third stadium, one to put Allen's to shame, is the juggernaut of their district. Just north of there is Cy-Fair ISD which has over 10 high schools as well. One, Cy Ranch making the state playoffs against Allen just a few years ago. Even lowly San Antonio Brennan, who was only in their third year of varsity football played and lost to Allen in a state title game.

And that's not even mentioned the original stalwart of Texas 'big time' football in Southlake Carroll who have been overshadowed by their much larger and more impressive DFW area monstrosity, Allen.

Well, so much for that.
In wrestling PA and Ohio are no.1 and no.2 every year for the last 10 years.

Lets take Ohio.....

How many kids are wrestling at Div1

How many kids are wrestling at BIG TIME Div1 schools

How many kids qualify for the NCAA tournament(PA and OH are way ahead of everybody)

How many kids are All-American(Top 8 in the nation)

How many kids are National Champs

PA and Ohio are No.1 and No.2 in every category.

You go by what State they wrestled in,in High School

In the 70's and 80's Ohio was no.1 in the Nation almost every year.

You can do the same thing in Div11 and PA and Ohio are no.1 and no.2

You go by what state they wrestled for in HIGH SCHOOL!

You can do the same thing in football.Texas is No.1 almost every year.

Except they aren't. Sorry, you can keep saying it over and over but the stats, facts and numbers say they aren't. How about using something other than your opinion to back your claim?

Feel bad for me...what is that all about! I could care less how you feel about me. Your discussion about the topic is what matters. You raise some great points. I've seen Texas football, been to Allen High School and many of the teams you mentioned are very good programs. At the time I posted my comments I made my point based on the rankings at that time. Right now I'd put Ohio's best DI team year in and year out up against any big school team from any state played in a neutral location. At the end of the day it's all about the best 40-50 kids who will play most of the game. I believe Ohio's big school champion has 50 football players that will match up pretty well. I think that's true for most states.

nation's best teams are the states of Texas, California and Florida. But which state, on the average, has the best teams?

Using the MaxPreps Freeman Rankings, Texas tops them all with a 55.8 average ranking. The average ranking is produced by taking the top 50 ranked teams in a state and averaging their computer rating. Texas comes out on top, but just barely. California is a close second with a 55.7 ranking. Florida is farther back at 50.2.
