Kenosha would have been a good choice. I decided to try and include all-black schools so that meant I had to knock out a few contenders. Plus California had a very good year in 1956 and so did Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas, which warranted including a couple more schools from those states. I am going to start working on 1955 this week. We will definitely keep Kenosha in mind.

Another great blog. I enjoyed it very much.

Not to be a "homer" but if there was a #51 it should be Kenosha WI, 8-0-0. They won the state title for the second consecutive time.

Give us MORE!!
