McClintock's main rival in football has been Tempe High School since 1964. Tempe and McClintock have annual, non-conference rivalry games. While McClintock is the historical favorite in the matchup, Tempe High has won in the past three years.[4]

The Chargers' first state football title came in 1977, when the team went undefeated and captured the championship with a 14-9 playoff victory over Phoenix's Washington High School. Three years later, the Chargers posted a 12-2 record and won their second title by defeating Phoenix's Trevor Browne High School in the 1980 championship game. Their third state title in 1989 capped a 13-2 season that ended with a 42-14 playoff victory over Mesa's Westwood High.[citation needed]
