  1. I’ve self published over a dozen books and would be more than happy to help with this process if you’re interested!
  2. Thanks but that’s my website. Trying to update for the book and will update these on the website too 😊
  3. Anywhere it says unknown. Several Win/loss records which would give a more accurate all-time win percentage. Also for several early seasons, I’m missing who the head coach was. Thanks!
  4. Doing research for the Indiana High School Football Record Book that will be coming out later this year. Any Miners able to help me fill in the gaps?

  5. Just for a little historical perspective, the idea originated with the SAC when the league started. From 1973 to 1979, the two division champions would play foe the conference title. http://www.almanacsports.com/football/conference.php?conf_id=summit The Fort Wayne City Series, the SAC’s predecessor, has one in 1971 and 1972 as well. Cool move though that could create some intriguing matchups. Rudy
  6. I'll scan the scores from Harrell's page, usually copy and paste and add them to my excel file using my format. I'll update the standings file too then upload via FTP to our server. Finally I'll run a php script that my brother created which updates everything on the site. Not the easiest way but done it that way for over a dozen years now lol Dan
  7. DM me your email and I’ll send to you. I don’t think it would be too hard I just don’t have the time right now unfortunately. Thanks!
  8. I use excel for everything. I'm happy to share the relevant files if someone wants to take this on. Should be a fairly "simple" task for someone who is really good with excel formulas 🙂 Rudy
  9. Hi all, Great topic. I love John Harrell's website of course but it only goes back to 1994. My ultimate goal for AlmanacSports.com is to document every game ever played by an Indiana high school football game (the earliest schools played in the 1890s). I love newspapers.com but it is a paid subscription. Lots of good stuff on there though so worth it to me. The Evansville-Vanderburgh Public Library has lots of Evansville newspapers archived in their microfilm collection, but I think you have to be a member to access. A great freebie is classmates.com/yearbooks. They have an amazing collection of old yearbooks and I check that regularly for my research. Also, does anyone know if Huntington North shares the same athletic lineage as Huntington High School? My research shows Huntington North opened the new high school in 1969 but they share the same nickname and school colors with Huntington. Are they the same or was it the start of a new school? Thanks, Dan
  10. I’ve begun work on this and hope to have finished by the start of the season. Would anyone be interested in writing a story on their favorite team and/or coach to include in the book? Thanks!
  11. Did a search on newspapers.com to see what I could find. I see Cathedral's first mention of the "Fighting Irish" nickname in 1925 (https://www.newspapers.com/image/104849923/?terms=Cathedral "Fighting Irish"&match=2). However, there's a 1911 article which describes Notre Dame as "the fighting Irish crew" (https://www.newspapers.com/image/6823056/?terms="Notre Dame" "Fighting Irish"&match=3). Would love to be proven wrong, and not saying that story isn't true, but these legends have a way of taking on a life of their own! Thanks and please let me know if you find any other information on this! Dan
  12. I've used this site countless times over the years. Definitely a great resource for Northern Indiana football history! Love this idea. @Muda69 this would go hand in hand with the GID history section.
  13. This would be really cool to feature in the book. Bios on the more infamous fields would be a cool addition too! That's really cool. I'll have to do some research and see if I can find out more about this. Thanks for sharing and definitely want to have a "Legendary Games" section
  14. Hello everyone! I've been thinking about creating an Indiana High School Football records book/encyclopedia. I would include info from my previous books (all-state players, tournament history, etc.) but would want to include other features, as well. conference standings coaching records state records for players list of state champs (including mythical back to 1800s) articles on legendary coaches and teams What else would you want to see included? Thanks, Dan "Rudy" Engler AlmanacSports.com
