Best OOS records ever .

I honestly wonder what happened to MA,CO and NY.... 

What caused the drop off... Back in the 20s-50s NY and MA used to be  on par with GA and FL but then... 

Something happened... 

The answer is probably demographics and year-round training.

Florida was the least-populated Southern state in 1940, 80 years later and it's the 3rd most populated state in the US. Once the post-war period hit and home A/C got cheap and practical, people realized they'd much rather live in warmer climates. At the same time the population of the Northern states has been shrinking as the heavy industries that dominated those states have closed or moved overseas and people weren't tied to those locations due to their jobs. Almost all the other Southern states are growing very fast as well.

A huge number of people also migrated to the more industrialized states during the Great Depression in the 1930s, which I'm sure helped bolster the football rosters of the Northern states and could be seen as a reverse effect to the trend from the 70s until today.

Throw in the fact that nobody, not even the NFL, did year round football workouts until after the 50s and it nullifies the advantage the South has, namely the weather in the Winter/Spring is conducive to working on football skills outdoors while it's still freezing cold up North. Once the Southern population started booming and year-round football training became commonplace, the inherent advantages of the South let them overtake the Northern states rapidly.

Certainly true for some northern states but it wouldn't have applied to MA...most of the industrial towns there were already in decline by 1930, it was very much built around "old industry" like textile mills and tanneries and turning whales into soap.

I wouldn't draw many conclusions from a limited number of postseason OOS games in the old days, but I feel like there was something a little different about the makeup of those FL and GA teams relative to now...

The makeup was all white teams because it was all before integration. 

I wonder if those Northern teams were all white back in the 30’s and 40’s. I know teams from the South back in the day would sometimes have issues if they had colored players.

This, but I was too lazy to type it.

The area where I grew up was once one of the largest centers of manufacturing of fine machinery and metal-working tools such as taps, dies, and drills in the world.

Now the towns are, if not ghost towns, certainly on life support.

They used to regularly field teams with rosters of 40 to 50.  Not big by Allen TX standards, for sure, but pretty good for towns with populations  of 10,000 to 20,00.

Now several towns have to pool players just to get the minimum number of players to field a team.  And I’m talking about 14 to 18 players.

They play hard but lack of depth is a killer.  It’s depressing to see what has happened.

What happened in the 60s?

In part, but certainly not the whole problem:

Drugs, hippies, and a general breakdown of respect for basic social decency.

Easier to screw off than to bust your ass on a football field.

They were most definitely not all white.

Several games were cancelled or simply not scheduled because the Southern teams would not, or were not allowed to, step on the field against a black player.

Race issues were in large part why the Peanut Bowl games between Georgia and Western Mass  were discontinued.  The Northern teams would not exclude their black teammates.

Who are some of the teams with a great OOS record all time? I wanted to highlight one team from back in the day. The Miami High Stingarees. From 1924-1962 they posted a record of 92 wins and 33 losses as well as 7 ties. Pretty stellar. Any other teams with something like that? 

If anyone want some to know about a specific game, let me know 

Bosco OOS since 1958 is 37- 18-1 with an average score of 24- 15...

Hmm, surprising you remember the school from Colorado but not the GA school, however, it does sort of make sense in that...

There's lots of history at East. It's been around since the late 1800s, and remains the most sought after high school for those living within the Denver city limits. Known primarily for academics, basketball, and the arts, some of East's alumni include Philip Bailey, Larry Dunn, and Andrew Woolfolk of Earth, Wind, and Fire fame; actor Don Cheadle; Apollo 13 astronaut Jack Swigert; Jackie Brown actress Pam Grier; former NBA all-star Joe Barry Carroll; Silicon Valley actor TJ Miller; current Memphis Grizzlies coach JB Bickerstaff; former First Lady Mamie Eisenhower; singer Judy Collins; rock band Flobots creator Jamie "Jonny 5" Laurie; silent movie star Douglas Fairbanks; etc.

Based on this, it's probably safe to say they came away with the win in football against that long-forgotten GA school.

Home of the Denver East Angels...

Excluding East vs Tech here's all the GA vs CO games: (That I know of I'm still looking) 

Pomona 14 @ Glynn Academy 33 

Thunder Ridge 19 @ Tift County 55 

Valor Christian 28 @ Greater Atlanta Christian 22

Miami has some battles with the best teams from Georgia at the time. Boys High, Tech, Lanier, and Savannah were all the big dogs before 1960

http://donboscofootballhistory.com/out-of-state-history/

Great history. Great program!

Bosco has travelled 20 times OOS.

And have played in 11 different states.

I haven’t done the research on which of these games could have been considered “risk games.” But undoubtedly many of them were.

Risk games, great title.....I would say that STA, DLS, Prattville, Manatee, St Ignatius, St Zavier, Bishop Gorman, Mission Viejo, every game vs BC and Centerville in that Curt Herbstreit game in Ohio....Also the game against AHP.

The big schools from Ohio have the most impressive resume of OOS wins. I believe that the OHSAA currently bans all member schools from traveling beyond a non bordering state. So these records mainly consist of games vs teams from MI, IN, KY, WV and PA. Also included are games from the Herbstreit classic (RIP). The Herbstreit classic started in 2005 I believe. The recorded OOS wins don’t mean that they were risk games. But for me it is proof that OH plays the best brand of football in the Midwest. 

 

Ohio OOS record from 2004-2018 (source Maxpreps)

Colerain          16-1

Washington   16-2

Steubenville  69-5

St Edward      43-5

La Salle          30-9

Elder               30-9

St Ignatius     35-9

Moeller         33-10

St Xavier       39-14

Dematha has a record of 90-17 vs OOS teams since 2004. And have played teams from 9 states in that time span. DC, VA, DE, PA, NJ, OH, FL, NC and NV. On the surface this seems like an amazing record because the Stags are a national power. But 60 of those wins are vs DC teams. Except for the recent growth of St John’s (2017 & 2018) this state never before had a national power team.

@NicholasMalibu @BigDropplease correct me if I’m wrong about DC.

Another 19 OOS wins are vs Bishop O’Connell and Paul VI from VA. Two horrible programs. So the bottom line is that their OOS record is inflated with easy wins. I’m not trying to bash Dematha because they do have my respect as a program that goes out to find the best competition. I’m using their OOS record as an example of why we should not glamorize random OOS games. 

 

Risk Games > OOS games

DeMatha 38 Miami Central 7. (USA Today #2 at the time)

DeMatha beat AHP at AHP.

Most significant loss came in 1980 to Gerry Faust’s Moeller (national champion) 35-0.  DM’s only loss of the year.

I agree. The WCAC is composed of teams from Maryland, DC and Virginia. This league/area is a rare situation. DeMatha is located a couple miles away from the three DC schools, Gonzaga, SJC and Carroll. I’ve actually went for runs between the schools. DeMatha is located 15 miles away from the two Virginia schools. All of these schools have students from MD, DC and VA. I hate the term, but the “DMV” is the area that includes DC, MD, and Northern VA. I can’t think of another area in the country beside maybe New England boarding schools where crossing state lines is the norm for league play. For that reason I’d take any WCAC school out of the OOS record conversation. 

Best OOS wins for DeMatha are Miami Central, Brockton and AHP. 

Worst losses are SJR and STA. 

As for the area, Good Counsel(WCAC) has a few national top 10 teams in the last 20 years. DeMatha would always play nationally ranked Gilman(MIAA-Baltimore) teams also. So the MD/DC area has had a few other “national powers” than DeMatha.

Forgot about the Brockton game.  DeMatha won at Brockton when they were ranked in the top five in USA Today.  (They played Brockton two years in a row.) There was also a significant victory over Chambersburg, PA who were preseason PA #1 in 4A that year.
