It has been one of the top rivalries in Northwest Ohio because of the winning tradition of both schools. The rivalry really took hold in 1996 when Patrick Henry won 22-20 on the way to a 10-0 regular season. It was Liberty Center's only loss and prevented the Tigers from reaching the playoffs despite a 9-1 record. Liberty Center won the state title the following year even though it lost to Patrick Henry again in that season.
