MaxPreps was founded in August 2002 by Andy Beal. According to Beal, his goal was to cover "Every team, every game, and every player in High School Sports." In 2007, the company was acquired by CBS Interactive.
As of 2017, MaxPreps covers a total of twenty-nine sports. They categorize sports into one of three categories: Boys, Girls, and Co-Ed. Five sports are exclusive to boys, five are exclusive to girls. Fifteen sports had separate male and female variants, while four were strictly co-ed. Below is a breakdown of the sports covered.
Every year MaxPreps awards an American high school the MaxPreps Cup, signifying that they are the #1 Athletic Program in the Nation. The most recent winner (2019) is Jesuit Portland. They have been awarding it since 2011. Before 2011, the award was just called #1 Athletic Program in the Nation.
