I posted this to the "Scores" section, but then I saw that scores are listed in the description for "8 Man Football" so:

8/14/2018 - In a match that was delayed for one hour due to lightning, the New Life Christian Eagles defeated the Lighthouse Homeschool Warriors at the Pinson Youth Sports Complex in a non-conference matchup by a score of 24-14.

In the 2017 Season, the opponent on Fri. Sept. 8 is listed as "Webb School TX". That is actually "The Webb School TN" which New Life also played in 2012 and 2014. The 2017 win changes the Border Wars stat for "vs Tennessee" to 1-2-0.

I'm not sure how you will resolve this, but the easiest place to see the problem is on New Life's "Opponents" page: http://www.ahsfhs.org/Teams2/Opponents.asp?Team=New%20Life%20Christian

New Life has historically played two different schools named Victory, often both in the same year. The more common opponent is Victory Christian Academy in Columbus, MS, and with playoffs New Life has even faced them twice in one year a couple of times.

Less frequently, New Life has played Victory Baptist School in Millbrook, AL; this is made more confusing by the fact that VBS has officially changed its name to Victory Christian Academy for the 2018-2019 school year.

I apologize that this list is a bit confusing, but since HTML code is off, I can't paste an actual table, so the spacing went haywire.

Date Opponent Correction
Friday, October 14, 2005 Victory Baptist Victory Christian Academy (Millbrook, AL)
Friday, October 21, 2005 Victory Christian MS Victory Christian Academy (Columbus, MS)
Friday, October 06, 2006 Victory Baptist Victory Christian Academy (Millbrook, AL)
Friday, October 05, 2007 Victory Baptist Victory Christian Academy (Millbrook, AL)
Friday, August 29, 2008 Victory Baptist Victory Christian Academy (Millbrook, AL)
Friday, September 05, 2008 Victory Christian MS Victory Christian Academy (Columbus, MS)
Friday, August 28, 2009 Victory Baptist Victory Christian Academy (Millbrook, AL)
Friday, September 04, 2009 Victory Christian MS Victory Christian Academy (Columbus, MS)
Friday, August 27, 2010 Victory Baptist Victory Christian Academy (Millbrook, AL)
Friday, September 03, 2010 Victory Christian MS Victory Christian Academy (Columbus, MS)
Friday, September 02, 2011 Victory Christian Victory Christian Academy (Columbus, MS)
Friday, August 31, 2012 Victory Christian Victory Christian Academy (Columbus, MS)
Friday, August 30, 2013 Victory Christian Victory Christian Academy (Columbus, MS)

I gave you so much yesterday, it was probably easy to miss this one.

I do what I can. You're listing NLCA Overall Record Progress @ 88% Complete. Can you tell me what sorts of data would fill in the gaps? I can't promise they have good records, but I'll give it a shot.

I don't know if you want to go back and make corrections to the Season Preview pages or not. Many of the corrections I have already supplied will change the info on these pages, and since you manually created them, that may be a bigger hassle than it is worth.

We are missing scores for every season between 1990 and 2002 except the 2000 season. Most of those years we do not even have a complete schedule.
One thing if you can find it would be what years Bobby Carr coached at New Life. I have always wanted to figure that out to complete his record. That would be huge.
We need coaches for other seasons too. You can see what we are missing on the coaches page for the school.

Carr still remembers his first team at New Life in 1996. He was two years removed from a three-year professional baseball playing career that topped out in the Rookie-level Appalachian League and ended with the independent Amarillo Dillas.

Before New Life's first game, a 14-8 loss to Kingwood, there was New Life's first practice.

"We had seven players show up and three quit after we ran a few sprints," Carr said. "The four left went through the halls begging people to play. We ended up with 13 players and won four games.

"That may have been the best coaching job me and my staff have done."

You can merge "The Webb School TN" and "Webb School TN" into one program. It is actually called The Webb School on their website, so the former is technically correct.

I spoke with David Camp last night. He told me that he was head football coach for New Life every year that Ike Thompson or Bobby Carr weren't from the days of flag football through the 2006 season.

The other names (Drew Watts, Mark Norris and Keith Baker) were either assistant coaches or didn't stay for the entire season.

Sorry, I should have clarified, David Camp was also the coach from 90-93.
