Tippah Sports History

Welcome to the digital age

Tippah County is home to a long, rich athletic history. Football, baseball, basketball and everything in between. We have produced state champions, record holders, NCAA and NFL stars. Super Bowl champions. Memories that will last a lifetime, played out in packed gyms on Tuesday nights and under the Friday night lights, whether you were on the field or in the stands. Some of my personal favorite memories were long bus rides to and from baseball games back in the oft used “good ole days.”

That is why Tippah County Sports is on a mission. We will be digitizing the records of every county school, including stats, scores, pictures and more from as far back as we can get. We will be working with the local schools and local sports historians to gather as much information as possible. Do you have video, pictures or anything you want include? E-mail tippahcountysports@gmail.com.

Oh, and one more thing……

 

Tippah Sports Hall of Fame

We want to preserve these memories and accomplishments of Tippah County athletics. But we also want to give special recognition to the teams, coaches and players who provided so much enjoyment for countless fans over  the years. So we will be presenting the inaugural class of the Tippah County Sports Hall of Fame, December 1st, 2017. We are taking submissions on who you feel is worthy of this honor, and those can be sent to us via e-mail (tippahcountysports@gmail.com) or on Facebook .

 

Nominees can be teams, individual players, coaches or administrators. Please submit who you are nominating and a reason you feel they are worth of inclusion. We will have no minimum or maximum number of members of each class, and we hope to make this an annual event. Contact us with any questions or comments on digitizing records or the Hall of Fame.
