Irish Line Momma posted a topic in The Indiana High School Football ForumAfter compiling data since 2004, we have come up with the 20 best high school football programs in Indiana. It has been 10 years now that MaxPreps has put out football computer rankings, presented by the Army National Guard. That's plenty of time to come up with a solid list of which programs have been the most dominant during the MaxPreps era. For the purpose of the rankings, each team will be awarded points based off where it finished in the computer rankings after each season. For example, if a team finished No. 1 overall it receives 25 points. If the team finished No. 25 overall, it would get one point. A team also receives 30 points for winning a state title and 15 for being the runner-up.
