High School Football is in full swing in Illinois, with teams across the state preparing for the second game of the 2017 season this week. With the start of the season, many sports fanatics where programs stack up with one another in terms of all time wins. Project 300 is a group that seeks to find historical records of each team in the state, and compiles a list each year of the top teams in Illinois.
Kev Varney is a historian with Project 300, and says one local school, Taylorville High School, has a long and rich football history.
It takes a lot of work to uncover early records of every program in the state, however one man involved in the project has gone far and wide to find out who’s the best.
Varney appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
