    They may be 3A now but they were 5A when I was wandering the halls so I still claim 5A status by means of the grandfather clause

    You are way over the top in your research efforts and I always enjoy perusing your work.

    Thank you!
    Isn't your school like 1A?

    From a sociological perspective it is truly interesting to see how this reflects the dramatic emergence of the Lone Star State from a rural orientation to an urban/suburban and now exurban nature. What's also interesting is how so many of the older 4A programs were at one time 5A, how the more stand-alone mid-size cities such as Longview, Tyler, San Angelo and the like have remained static in many ways, and some fo the original urban powerhouses in terms of size and power, such as some of the DISD, HISD and SAISD schools, have actually declined (in more ways than one, unfortunately). What is probably fascinating at the 4A level is the number of schools that have emerged in the "exurban" areas along the I-35 corridor (and other major transportation corridors), such as Steele, Hays Consolidated, Lehman and the like, and to a certain extent (at teh 5A level) schools like Judson, SLC and Katy which in many ways were arguably rural, then exurban and now suburban. From a purely sociological and historical perspective, I find all this truly fascinating

    I agree... if you look at where most of the new school openings have occurred over the decades you find that Houston and DFW have essentially been alternating in the lead over the past 50 years (Houston in the 60's, 80's and 00's and DFW in the 70's and 90's) with the RGV having a real surge in the 1990's and the I-35 corridor in the 2000's.

    The category listed as "Other" consists mainly of schools in smaller urban areas such as from Laredo, Corpus, the Golden Triangle, the Panhandle and the Permian Basin.

    2000-2008 School Openings (among the current 246 schools classified as 5A)
    Greater Houston - 19
    DFW - 10
    CenTex - 6
    Greater San Antonio - 6
    Other - 3
    RGV - 2
    El Paso - 1

    1990-1999 School Openings
    RGV - 7
    DFW - 6
    Greater Houston - 5
    El Paso - 3
    Other - 3
    CenTex - 2
    Other - 2
    Greater San Antonio - 0

    1980-1989 School Openings
    Greater Houston - 12
    DFW - 3
    CenTex - 2
    RGV - 1
    Greater San Antonio - 1
    El Paso - 1
    Other - 1

    1970-1979 School Openings
    DFW - 10
    Greater Houston - 9
    Greater San Antonio - 3
    CenTex - 2
    RGV - 2
    El Paso - 0
    Other - 0

    1960-1969 School Openings
    Greater Houston - 9
    DFW - 8
    Greater San Antonio - 5
    El Paso - 4
    Other - 4
    CenTex - 1
    RGV - 0

    A large amount of data was compiled today and the original post now contains very nearly the complete histories of over half of the current 246 5A schools (134 to be exact).

    It's amazing that the 140 schools that have opened in the past 45 years since 1964 have only won a combined 9 State Titles in the largest existing classification, with Trinity being the only program to have more than one...

    whereas the 10 schools that got their start in the 3 season period from 1961-1963 have won a combined 15 titles in the largest classification, with 5 of the 10 schools each having won at least one.

    UPDATE: At least the framework of the complete histories of 150 programs has now been posted on the initial post, with the majority of them 95-100% complete. I rearranged them in to the current district alignment for greater ease in finding particular programs.

    Let me know of any errors or if you happen to know missing results and I'll gladly update the posts.

    Also... let me know if any of the 150 links are not working as I typed them all in by hand, so it's quite possible a missed keystroke here or there could have made a link or two invalid.

    As I have no idea what's going on over on texashsfootball.com where the majority of my historical files are posted... I'm adding in all of my histories for the 5A programs on to this post so that they will be accessible to those who want them.

    If there's a year listed after the school name it means the history extends back to the initial varsity season... if not the history is incomplete

    Links to my histories for all 246 Current 5A teams are now available on the original post.

    Let me know if any of the links are incorrect as I typed them all in pretty quickly.

    Don't know why you have Lewisville Hebron? It's just Hebron. You don't have Lewisville Flower Mound or Lewisville Flower Mound Marcus. Why Lewisville Hebron?

    Thanks... like it says at the top of the original post, only those histories that have an actual year listed after them go all the way back to the inaugural seasons. This is a project that has been 4 years in the making and I still have quite a ways to go.

    Your browser is shrinking the images down to fit on the page.... move your mouse over the image on the left side of the page and click on it and it should zoom out to original size.

    Here's the list of all current 5A programs, their inaugural seasons of 11-man varsity play and their all-time win-loss records through 2007. Conroe actually started playing back as early as 1912

    I have found records showing Ball High actually played football as early as 1892 so the above table needs to be updated in several spots:
