Missing Scores 

     Share on Facebook         

           Recently I received all the schedule books that the AHSAA printed between 1972 and 2011. They were also called "Fall Sports" books. Bill Plott was nice enough to share them with us. These books helped in finding some of the missing scores during this timeframe. Bill filled in all the scores each year.

           Since the beginning of the 1970 football season we are currently missing only fourteen scores. That is unbelievable to say the least since more than 92,000 games have been played during that time by the AHSAA teams.

           The most notable game is one that both Bill and I have tried everything we know to find without success.
           The 1977 game between Maplesville and Verbena is proving to be a tough find. We have gone to the Library in Maplesville and Clanton and neither have anything on the game. The Newspaper is missing an issue from that week and following weeks do not give us any insight into the score of that game. Neither has a copy of a yearbook for either school to my recollection. If they did the score was not in the yearbook.

           Since the beginning of the 1980 season we have every score of every high school football game played in Alabama. We have now completed the past 37 football seasons.

           We now have whittled down our list of missing scores since 1950 to a much more manageable total. The best guess for how many games are still missing would be around 520 since 1950. That means we about 99.7% complete.

           Only thirty-four AHSAA schools are missing ten or more games. Three schools, Stevenson, Bridgeport and Vina account for nearly one-third of these missing games.

           With that in mind I have put together a list of these missing scores in hopes that someone out there can assist us in finding one or more of them.
