Best HS Football Team in Indiana History?

Recommended Posts

Here's another fun topic that can distract us from what's going around us. But who is the BEST team in Indiana HS Football History? 

Ben Davis Twitter account posted a thread of their 1991 Team, who ended up as National Champs. https://twitter.com/BenDavisFB/status/1243172114724786179

It might be fun to talk about the best teams by individual class as well (1A-6A)

Reitz, I believe it was 61

 

Ben Davis 91, Ben Davis 17, Warren 06 are the best 3 in my opinion, with Ben Davis 01 trailing slightly behind.

I know the 1983 Penn team had a defense that gave up less than 7 a game. 

As far as the best team, I would say the 2003 Warren Central team would be the best one I have seen.......with the 1984 WC team a close 2nd, of course. 😁

What about smaller classes? '18 Pioneer team w/Kizer, any of the LCC teams during their run.... Who else?

Sheridan had a couple in 1A in 1998 and then 2005-2007, Bishop Luers had many as well.

Webo in 18 & 19... Undefeated in 18, but would argue the team in 19 was more dominant.

Bombers in 2014 for class 2a really put on an offensive show 

2013:  We had 13 defensive touchdown returns

2014: we had 5 safeties on the year.  

I would put those dudes in 2014 up with anyone in class 1a-2a being bantered about, however, I am clearly biased, just know how darn competitive that group was.

It was a tough group and I think there are about 20 groups that could argue for their spot amongst history in the last 100 years. I love the debate here but I think it’s too broad to come up with 1 best team

I would love to see the 06 Warren Team Vs. The 17 Ben Davis team. 

Calpreps says 2017 Ben Davis takes a single game match-up.

  •  Pioneer '18 35-34 LCC '09
  •  Pioneer '18 35-31 LCC '10
  •  LCC '11 35-28  Pioneer '18
  •  Pioneer '18 31-28 LCC '12
  •  LCC '15 35-31  Pioneer '18

Would definitely make for some good football.

Hard to pick between the 1997 and 1998 Jimtown teams.  I would probably lean 1998. Finishing off back to back undefeated seasons (30-0) including wins over state finalists Northwood and Concord in the regular season.  Although the 1997 team did win 63-0 in the state championship game.

Would be a good match-up. Think it would be closer that 11 points

I bit earlier than the 70's, Snider gave up 39 total points in 1966.

In terms of smaller school, I would throw the 2015 Monrovia up at the top as well. 

That group was special.
