31 Game Winning Streak

From September 2, 1977, through September 21, 1979, Mayfield High School put together a 31-game win streak that ranks today as the 6th longest win streak in Kentucky high school football history. The streak began with a 28-0 defeat of Ft. Campbell and was ended September 28, 1979, with a 14-7 loss to Paducah Tilghman. Mayfield averaged 29 points per game during the streak and held their opponents to 8 points per game. The streak included 12 wins over schools that were classed higher than Mayfield by KHSAA, and two large out-of-state powers, East St. Louis and Memphis Douglas. While most wins were big, the streak included a 20-19 win over East St. Louis, a 14-13 win over Corbin for the 1977 State Championship, and a 22-6 win over Somerset for the 1978 State Championship.
