NOTES:
(1) If 'First Year' is unknown we assume a year based upon research.
(2) Winning and losing seasons counted only if team plays at least 5 games.
(3) All State players counted for the all state teams we have in our database. We must have an entire team for the appropriate classification to make additions to the teams. Only ASWA teams are recognized after 1982.
(4) NFL Players counted for any player that participated in a regular season game.
