Skyline, Bellevue crack MaxPreps list of top football dynasties | Prep sports news

The Spartans came in at number 20, while Bellevue was ranked 10th by

Only two prep football programs from Washington made the list of top dynasties since 2003, and they should come as no surprise.

Skyline, winners of four of the past five 4A WIAA titles, came in at number 20 with an overall mark of 116-16 since 2003. The Spartans lay claim to seven total state championships including back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012 and came in on the list in front of storied St. Thomas Aquinas from Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Bellevue was the highest ranked team from anywhere west of Texas, coming in at number 10 on the list with its eight state titles and 127-8 overall mark. The Wolverines were just behind Warren Central from Indianapolis and one spot in front of Mission Viejo from California.

The list was compiled by MaxPreps based on wins, state championships and strength of schedule. De La Salle, which had a 151-game winning streak snapped by the Wolverines at Century Link Field in 2004, was the top team on the list, followed by Don Bosco Prep (New Jersey), Southlake Carroll (Texas), St. Xavier (Ohio) and Colerain (Ohio). Euless Trinity, which Bellevue beat in 2012 to open the season, came in at number 12 and Katy, another former Bellevue foe from the Longhorn State, entered the rankings at number 12.

No other team from Washington or Oregon made the list and only seven of the 25 teams came from the West Coast.
