Is there an achievement missing from ourrecord book? Has an athlete in your school turned in a notable per-formance? Do you have a suggestion for us? You can contact theeditors at the addresses below. The book includes records of schools that belong, or previouslybelonged, to the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference(CIAC). We do recognize varsity games that Connecticut schoolsplay against non-CIAC members and out-of-state schools.One of the sources of information is MaxPreps, the official statisticianfor the CIAC. This project is independent of the CIAC and MaxPreps. The editors consider multiple sources when gathering information ordeciding on submissions for the record book. To the extent possible, the record book uses figures compiled inaccordance with the statistical manual of the National Federation of State High School Associations, which is derived from the NCAA'smanuals that cover compiling statistics for football games. NFLrulesfor statistics do not apply for high school games. The Connecticut football record book is not a Hall of Fame or areflection on the lifetime achievements of players or coaches. It is astatistical record of what high school athletes and coaches haveaccomplished on the field in varsity football games. This record book project was launched in 1997 by the late Bohdan"Bo" Kolinsky, a long-time scholastic sports editor of the HartfordCourant, and Tim Sullivan, then offensive coordinator at Weaver HighSchool in Hartford, and in recent years a Hartford school administra-tor. The present editors took over after Bo's death in 2003, incorpo-rating their own research and that of the late John Ryan of NorthHaven, a pioneer historian of Connecticut scholastic football.If you have information that belongs in the record book, pleasecontact the editors:
