Texas Six-Man Records

I have been working on this a long time and while I am still needing to research a few things and leads this is what I have for Texas 6-Man Records (and most would be National 6-man Records)

These have been printed in the back of the Dave Campbell's Magazine for several years now and in the State Game Programs by the UIL as well..

I am asking all coaches, former and current and former players to please look over these and if you think someone has better stats from the past please let me know and help me locate that info...MOST coaches I trust not to pad their stats just to set a record so I might ask for confirmation just to be on the safe side.

And I have a much more detailed Records list so PLEASE send me info if any player is even close to these numbers as they will still fall somewhere in the Top 25 in each category.

I also have a few other catagories that I have not shared here as more data is needed to help determain the record (like Total Points Scored in a single season by an Individual which is Dewayne Miles but the number is not 100% accounted for yet as I am missing some of his games PAT kicks)

***Please notice that some single game records were set this year!

A good example of something I have been trying to track down is 2008 Star Football Game Films, Newspaper articles and Stats...because their RB Orlando Bell rushed for some crazy numbers that season...but Star didnt have a stat keeper! If you remember Star didnt even have a Head Coach until about the 2nd day AFTER 2-A-Days started!

Bell might have rushed for over 4,000 yards that season but there is no way of finding out unless I can get every single game film which I have been trying to do for over 6 years now...and I only have 2...

I know some guys probably had better stats/records than this (career Interceptions come to mind) but unless I can get some kind of verification I cant qualify the claim

I have always and are still willing to transfer any and all VHS tapes sent to me to dvd for free for anyone who wants that done...and who know your films just might help confirm a record!
