Beaver Falls Top Football Teams

The Larry Bruno Foundation is pleased to present our list of the top Beaver Falls High School football teams spanning their 113-year history. Being one of the most iconic football programs in Western Pennsylvania, we feel it's something worth remembering and preserving.

Compiling the list was a somewhat labor-intensive process, but was nothing less than a labor of love. We started out with the top 25 teams, but quickly realized that would leave out too many great teams. The list was expanded to the top 40 you see below. Much research went into compiling this list and it represents the opinion of the Foundation. We welcome and encourage feedback from our community on this top 40 compilation.

I dedicate this list to my brother, The Chief, who is most responsible with igniting my passion in Tiger sports. There is never a Beaver Falls sports event I watch without thinking of him. – Steve Higgins
