Tennessean: HS Football numbers healthy statewide

By Maurice Patton for The Tennessean

After losing an average of just more than one player per school over a five-year period, Tennessee high school football saw a participation increase of nearly 500 players last season.

According to numbers submitted by the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association to the National Federation of State High School Associations, 23,003 students played 11-man football for 349 programs in 2013.

That number was up from 22,504 in 2012.
