      **Alabama Prep Football History Society
      Alabama is a state with a long, rich history of high school football.
      The Alabama Prep Football History Society is a group dedicated to
      researching and documenting the details and history of the state's prep
      football past. The purpose of this group is to provide a forum for the
      exchange of historical information about the high school teams in
      Alabama, including the results of individual games, season records, the
      recording of various polls, all-state teams, coaching records and
      championship results. Ideally, we're out to collect the result of every
      football game ever played played by every high school in Alabama. We are
      dedicated to collecting this information with the greatest accuracy. If
      you can provide reliable information about any team or anything related
      to any of these other topics, we encourage you to participate in this
      group.
