We have heard everyone's opinion on how they think there school has the best rivalry, but let's get real now. How many games can claim over 30,000 people annually, and year are year after year competing for the state title??

I live here in Louisville, KY and I believe our rivalry is second to none other than maybe the Jenks vs. Union rivalry. There have been over 30,000 people to this game every year for the past 20 years and before that it was over 25,000. Last year the game brought out 38,500. people tailgate from around 4 till gametime at 8. people cut work early to tailgate for this game. There have been many collegiate and pro athletes that have competed in this game. As of now Brian Brohm former USA today high school player of the year is a top heisman candidate played for trinity. Most of these kids know each other and played grade school ball together and that is what makes this game so special.

How bout East Grand Rapids versus Catholic Central. EGR has won 5 championships in a row and CC has won 5 in the past six years so this is the best. CC vs EGR

In Michigan, the biggest rivalry is the 4 way rivalry between Clinton township Chippewa Valley, Macomb Township Dakota, Shelby Township Eisenhower and Utica Stevenson. They all belong to the most powerful conference in Michigan (MAC Red) and generally the winner of the conference goes on to the state finals for Eastern Michigan. The total attendence from all 6 games is about 120,000 all together, and few teams can match the amount of city pride these rivalries hold.

However, this probably isn't the largest rivalry in the country.

The rivialry that I took part in all 4 years of my high school career was "The St. Paul/Monreoville Game".I played for St. Paul. It was big as OSU/Michigan for the people of Huron County as well as the players. If you went 1-9 and only beat SP or Monroeville the season was a total sucess but if you went 9-1 and lost only to SP/Monroeville the season was a complete waste.

Valdosta, GA

Valdosta Wildcats (Valdosta, Ga) rivialry with Lowndes Vikings (Lowndes County)is one of the biggest, most talked about games for years. We average about 20,000 fans. Its known as the Winnersville classic.

Come on now you know the best football is played in Florida. The best High School rivialry in the country is Bradenton Southeast(Seminoles)and Bradenton Manatee (Hurricans)need I say more! Ask any college coach at any level, and I bet they have been to the game, or caught it on pay-per-view.

The second best would be Bellglade vs Bellglade Central.

I think it's Cincinnati Elder vs. Cincinnati St. Xavier. We have always been duking it out against St. X every year they beat us this year but we still get turn outs of over 15,000 per game, and more for games against St. Xavier, La Salle, and Moeller.

Austell, GA

That's all fine and dandy, but by far Miami Northwestern vs. Miami Jackson is the best rivalry in the country. This game alone brings over 50,000 people each year. If the game happens to have any playoff implications, it may sell out the Orange Bowl. (need I say more)

Lubbock monterey and Lubbock cornado is a huge game around here last year we won "monterey" by a 1 point but if you want tradition you go with the spurs game wich has ben played for 52 years now and thats got monterey against lubbock high but monterey has dominated that series with a record of 43-9 spurs look good in our hall way
