Now, in 2012 other team sports have joined football as a part of our research. Initially AHSFHS.org will include information about the state tournament, all state teams, all tournament teams, player awards, coaches and team records. The additional team sports will include Basketball and Soccer for both boys and girls, Volleyball, Baseball and Softball.

Tales from Alabama Prep Football

Ron Ingram and Rubin Grant have covered High School football in Alabama for many years and have produced a great book on the sport. A must read for every high school football fan. If you haven't read it get a copy today. It was during high school that players such as Bo Jackson, Pat Sullivan, Bobby Bowden, Bart Starr, John Hannah, Kenny Stabler, Pat Trammell, Terrell "T.O." Owens, and Carnell "Cadillac" Williams-to name but a few-began their ascent to stardom.

Another good book on HS Football in the state is the Complete History of DeKalb County/ Ft Payne Wildcats Football. Larry Hancock did much of the research and put the book together. Copies are available through the school.

The Beginning

The game of American football as played today by high school, college, and professional teams grew out of rugby-style football which in the mid-1870s replaced a largely kicking game known as association football. Although initially played on village greens and on college fields, the first intercollegiate game took place on 6 November 1869 when Rutgers defeated Princeton 6-4 in a soccer-style game. Five years later, Montreal's McGill University playing at Harvard introduced rugby football, which would be rapidly adopted by eastern teams.   *Answers.com
