The History of High School Football in Tennessee


      Welcome to AHSFHS.org. We are proud to have joined efforts with tennprepdb.com to bring the history of high school football to the sports fans of Tennessee. Much of the research has been completed by our friend at tennprepdb.com and it will simply take some time to get everything entered and onto the website. A special gratitude goes to tennprepdb.com for sharing their many hours of dedicated research over many years with us and all the Tennessee high school football fans.
      Our goal is to chronicle a complete history of high school football in the state of Tennessee. We provide important information including coaching records, state champions, playoff and bowl games, region and district records and much more. If you can provide accurate scores or any other information related to our efforts we encourage you to contact us. We appreciate your patience and be sure to check back often as updates are made almost daily.

      The progress in completing schools 1950-2019
   Our Progress. 

     It is a daunting task to figure out the schools and how they all fit together. It will be a tough process until all the schools have been researched. If you can assist or have any information on schools that have closed or been consolidated with other schools please feel free to contact us.

      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. With the research already completed we have about 88% of the scores back through the 1950 football season.

      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 140,000 games played among the Tennessee high school football teams over the past 100 years or so. We are nearing the point to where 75% 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.   *Answers.com
