There’s an obvious school at the top of the state’s list for best football win-loss records so far in the decade of the 2010s. After that, though, there are many just above or almost at 90 percent. State’s best for every decade back to 1900 and best record since every decade ended also presented in this post.

Note: The following lists are mostly taken from updated totals that will soon be placed on this site as part of the Cal-Hi Sports State Record Book. Our founder, the late Nelson Tennis, began compiling state records in 1975 and continued his work until his death in 2004.
