VHSL-Reference - Football State Championship Team Traits

1920-16 List
1999-16 Team Summary1999-16 Championship GamesChampionship Team Traits


 

In my study of the 102 VHSL state championship teams from 1999-16, I found that there are certain traits that state championship teams have during their championship seasons.

Knowing these traits it's possible to create a system to eliminate teams from state championship consideration if they do not have the championship traits.
