A few months ago, I picked up a copy of A Century of Utah High School Football, which chronicles the Beehive State’s football history from 1893 to 1993. It’s a great resource, thoroughly researched by author George B. Felt. If you have any interest in high school football and/or Utah, it’s a great book to grab.
I can’t help but think that if I had begun this project 15 years ago, I’d have done the same thing — put all my research into a book. Hey, maybe it’s still coming. We’ll see.
Anyway, ACOUHSF has helped me fill in a few gaps in my research, but even more so, it’s created more questions. I double-checked all my Utah scores with the ACOUHSF book, and while most of them matched up, a few didn’t. On top of that, ACOUHSF listed some games that I don’t have.
I’ll start chipping away at answering some of these questions when and as I can. As I find/change any errors or inaccuracies, I’ll post them here.
The Utah experience only helps solidify a growing frustration I have with this research — out-of-state games. Take a look at my missing games list, and you’ll notice that a good portion of them are out-of-state games.
But that’s another rant for another time. For now, here’s a huge shout-out to Mr. Felt and ACOUHSF. Great work. Thank you.
