At First Site Where You Can Find Information about High School Sports on the World Wide Web


1. www.EdgyTim.com

Who runs the site: Rivals.com football expert Tim O'Halloran.

The site's best features: Want video of top football recruits? It's here. Want game analysis? Here. An intelligent forum to speak your mind? OK, you get the point. If it's relevant to Illinois high school football, it's on this site.

Why go to this site: Not just a football recruiting site, "Edgy Tim" O'Halloran consumes the sport in all facets. Whether it's an in-depth player interview or an editorial piece about the state of the game, O'Halloran fully shows his passion for the sport. A proud disclaimer: "Edgy" is also a Daily Herald contributor in the fall.

2. www.IllinoisMatmen.com

Who runs the site: A request for information was not answered.

The site's best features: While clearly a high school wrestling fan's dream, this site doesn't go dormant when the season ends in March. The best part about Illinois Matmen is that it follows the action year-round at the youth, high school, college and club levels. Everything from rankings to camp information can be found here.

Why go to this site: As much as they'd like to be in 10 places at once, wrestling fans can only attend a certain number of meets. This site has ample information on the statewide scene. Previews and wrapups of top tournaments are right at your fingertips.

3. www.statsandgo.com

Who runs the site: Web site founders Al Miller and Mike Stevens, former coaches in Iowa.

The site's best features: A well-designed format for looking at statistics packages in a variety of sports. Break it down by teams, games, individuals - just about any way you wish. The free service allows coaches to track their stats as often, and as detailed as they wish.

Why go to this site: While a handful of area coaches take advantage of the terrific services offered by Stats & Go, it's still a relatively underused Web site. But think of the possibilities, coaches. Every player has his own her own page where you can find compiled or game-by-game stats. Team stats are organized the same way. Heck, you can even put your picture on there.

4. www.ihsa.org

Who runs the site: The Illinois High School Association and webmaster Scott Johnson.

The site's best features: Ever wondered who has the record for most consecutive state titles won in football? This is the place to go (although we'll let the cat out of the bag - the answer's Driscoll with five straight and counting). A glorious record book, the highlight being a detailed history of the original March Madness. All IHSA announcements are found here, including recent historic memos about the multiplier and the upcoming plan to add classes in several sports.

Why go to this site: The grandaddy of all Illinois high school Web sites, this is where it all begins. All official post-season information is posted on this site first. The Score Zone is a great place to find up-to-date playoff scores. And the football pairings timetable information - who's in, who's out, all the matchups - is just a blast.

5. www.ihssca.com

Who runs the site: The Illinois High School Soccer Coaches Association.

The site's best features: Sounds simple, but thanks to a solid redesign it's one of the best organized high school sports Web sites you'll find. Timely with its news - especially the IHSSCA's postseason honors in the fall and spring - the site also offers photos from their events. Offering a little bit of everything, even the links are quality.

Why go to this site: Because it gives you entertainment in addition to the nuts and bolts. Sure, you can find coaching openings and teams looking for games. But you'll also find a bunch of fun pictures now and then. Also, this is the place to go if you want to see the names of the 11 different Daily Herald writers named Media Person of the Year since 1981. Sorry, shameless plug. …
