Today is the final day for our list of the 50 greatest high school football programs in Kentucky history. In this article we are looking at the top seven programs and they'll be released over the course of the day. As was mentioned in each of the previous threads, this is based on a formula that awards teams a certain amount of points for playoff wins, district championships, appearances in state championship games, and state titles. These rankings begin with the 1959 season since that was the first year the KHSAA sponsored a playoff.

In case of ties, the team with the most state championships gets the better ranking. If that number is the same, then I moved to playoff wins. Also, regarding district championships, between 1959 and 1972 some regions were not divided into districts. In those cases, a region championship is awarded as a district championship.

Check back throughout the day as the top seven are revealed.
