Ah yes I was at this game. The Amarillo Globe News did an outstanding job covering sixman during these times. It was a huge deal because it was FE’s first time making the playoffs and winning a district championship. Then upsetting #1 Whitharral in the second round.

They did have a picture on the sports page of when the QB let go of the ball and he was clearly behind it. Im sure the article and picture of it are lost and can’t be found now. Regardless it was a great game to watch!

You’re probably right about it being lost. I’d love to see it if it was floating around somewhere, though. I’ll be the first to admit that video I posted isn’t the best footage.

No luck so far, but I did find this interesting article from January 2003 in The Wheeler Times. “Ft. Elliott Shocks Six-Man World”

Winston school of San Antonio beat Town East Christian School 122-120 i believe it was about 2010. I believe at that time it was the highest combined score of any two teams.

According to the archives, it was in 2011.


I'll work on building something that makes it easier to find the highest and lowest scoring games in the database at some point. I'm wondering how many other games are 220+ points scored, but then I'm also wondering if there have been any 6-0 games scored. Assuming those games are listed in the database, though, we will find out soon enough!

So just to get a break from other things I've been working on, and also to satisfy my own curiosity, here are a few new pages to the site:



I'm wondering if the 2-0 games were actually forfeits that went in as 2-0 instead of 1-0, or if those were safeties. If anyone knows for sure, before I have a chance to look into them, please let me know and I'll get them fixed.
