Virginia crowns first spring football champions in high school history
Like any other year, the Virginia High School League crowned six state football champions Saturday afternoon in six different classifications. But these were clearly different.  From all records MaxPreps has researched, Virginia is the first state to ever award football championships in the spring.

The Riverhead Gladiators were officially the first ones crowned, with a 65-29 victory over the Galaxy Maroon Tide in the Class 1 title game. A 34-point second-point explosion led the Gladiators to their 10th straight win of the season. They outscored opponents 483-119 on the season. 

Perennial East power Oscar Smith (8-0) followed with a 62-21 Class 6 title win over South County, and Stone Bridge (8-0) took the Class 5 crown with a 13-10 overtime win over Highland Springs. (See all the champions below).

The VHSL was one of 15 states to move the traditional fall 2020 season to the spring due to COVID-19 pandemic. Of those states, 11 decided on abbreviated spring seasons, with just three opting for playoffs. North Carolina and Rhode Island have scheduled state championship games next week.

According to MaxPreps senior writer and historian Kevin Askeland, no states have ever held football championships in the spring, although one in California was scheduled in 1919. That title game was called off when Orange League champion Fullerton disbanded a month before the scheduled contest.

Sierra Canyon freshman in action during 2019-20 season.

While powerhouse high school football teams and Friday nights in the fall generate major audience interest on MaxPreps.com, on an individual level it's all about the stars on the hardwood.

Basketball players occupy 20 of the 25 most visited player pages on MaxPreps from Aug. 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020.

Fans and site users are particularly interested in the Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Calif.) hoops team, which claims five of the Top 10 spots and seven of the Top 25. That means two players who came off the bench for the Southern California program are among the most recognizable names in high school sports.

Leading the way for Sierra Canyon is the freshman son of LeBron James — Bronny James, who piled up over twice as many player page visits as any other athlete on MaxPreps over the past 12 months. Teammates Zaire Wade, Harold Yu, Brandon Boston Jr. and Ziaire Williams also made the Top 10.

In addition to current prep stars, our list includes big names like Patrick Mahomes and Derrick Henry, who are still generating major interest on the site years after their respective high school careers came to an end.

See an expanded list of the high school athletes that are driving traffic below, along with a brief explanation of what made them compelling in 2019-20.
