Why is it that when state championships are mentioned in terms of making it to them, winning them, losing them etc.. that those teams from '40 to '68 who were part of the PVIL are never mentioned, like the UIL teams are?
And for those that dont know, the PVIL is the Prarie View Intershcolastic League. It was the negro league during the days of segregation.
Like for instance when Houston Yates state titles and appearences are talked about, only the '81 team that lost to Lake Highlands and the '85 team that killed everyone are the teams that are mentioned. But Houston Yates actually played in 9 title games and won 5 when you count PVIL and UIL titles and appearences.
Anyone have any thoughts as to why this is?
