Greenwood High School has the nation's fourth-longest active win streak following its 41st consecutive victory last Friday.
The Bulldogs beat Shiloh Christian 55-24 last week to finish their nonconference season undefeated. Through three games, the team has outscored its opponents by a combined score of 151-34.
Greenwood, which last lost a game in 2010, will open 7A/6A-Central play Friday at Fort Smith Northside. The Bulldogs' win streak is the third-longest in state history, just shy of Shiloh Christian's 44 straight wins in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Barton holds the state record for most consecutive wins with 63, snapped in 1990.
Ithaca, Mich. and Regina, Iowa hold the nation's longest current win streak for 11-man football at 46 games. Bellevue, Wash. has won 43 straight games.
Pahranagat, N.M., which plays 8-man football, has won 61 straight games. Clairton, Pa. had a 66-game win streak snapped last weekend.
Greenwood is a three-time defending state champion. The Bulldogs won Arkansas Class 5A championships in 2010 and 2011, and the Class 6A title last year.
The western Arkansas school has won seven state championships since 2000.
