Yes, there was a magical time in the 1960s when a public school representing a single town could have the best high school football teams in Southern California. El Rancho of Pico Rivera was that school and not only did the Dons have the most wins of any school in the state in the 1960s […]
This school’s 2016 team was close to being a CIF state champion and its all-time win total is getting close to 500. And if it weren’t for one bad decade — the 1960s — we might be talking about Fort Bragg as one of the state’s top all-time small-school, small-town teams. Since we’re still getting […]
This is one of the oldest schools that has asked us to compile its all-time football scores archive and it’s the only school in California that can say it has a graduate elected President of the United States. While Whittier’s football fortunes haven’t been that great since the 1960s, there were enough dominant decades (1930s, […]
Pacers weren’t the Pacers when they started in 1932 and their first head coach was known for going in the wrong direction.

If you’re looking for a school that’s trying and succeeding at erasing a losing past, then look no further than Buena Park. The Coyotes had suffered through some abysmal decades, especially the 1980s and 2000s, and then head coach Anthony White arrived. They’ve already won more games in one decade than in any other and […]
The Marin County school is well over 100 years old and hasn’t had much success in football with wins and losses, but a QB from there once held the state single-game passing record for 21 years. And there may not be a school with such a colorful cast of head coaches. This is the seventh […]
