      This is a work in progress. There is still much research and work to be completed before everything comes together and teams are completed.

      We will be researching the teams in segments. Our first goal is to complete as many teams as possible back to 1950. We currently have most of the information for the larger schools who belonged to the Big 8 Conference prior to 1981.

      As more research is done, we will include scores and coaches for every team prior to 1950. So, bear with us while the project progresses over the next few years. It is a very time consuming process to find every score for every team.

      Our projections are that there have been approximately 130,000 games played among the Mississippi high school football teams over the past 100 years or so. We are nearing the point to where 88% of these scores are included in our records.

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.   *
