Other Team Sports

Following years of research, in June of 2007 the AHSFHS.org website became a reality. Many people have gotten involved to assist with the research of the schools and teams to make this possible.

In 2012 other team sports 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.

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
