Circleville, Westfall make lists of top football teams of past decades

The Columbus Dispatch posted an article last week listing the top central Ohio football teams by winning percentage over the last six decades. Both Circleville and Westfall made the list over the time period.

Circleville dominated the county football scene in the 60’s and 70’s compiling a whopping 140-59 record and placing in the Associated Press’ Top 10 several years. Westfall’s success came in the 90’s and 2000’s, much behind former Coach Scott Bartholomew’s success, before leaving to coach at Logan Elm.
