DID YOU KNOW - VHSL has conducted football championships since 1920, when Newport News High School defeated Jefferson Senior High School of Roanoke, 14-7, in VHSL's first title football game. Since that time, Hampton High School has won a VHSL-record 17 championships, four of them consecutive (1995-98). A six-division format and power-ratings system were put into place in 1986 to promote more equitable competition between similarly sized schools.
Football is the most popular VHSL sport for boys. In 2011, 25,476 boys and 21 girls at 306 schools played football.
