Portsmouth Trojans Currently 8th On All-Time Wins List

In reviewing the OHSAA list of all-time wins for schools, Portsmouth High School has moved up to 8th place on the list with 1,417 wins. I have the year by year records for the Trojans since 1913, but records such as these are not an exact science, since they are normally compiled from several different sources........newspapers, yearbooks, etc. The OHSAA lists the time period for the 1,417 wins as from 1916-2014. Because the OHSAA is the major source for records such as these, the total of 1,417 will be used and considered official; however, the year by year records I have listed previously on this website will not change.

Here are the top 30 all-time winningest programs in the state of Ohio, courtesy of the OHSAA records website:
