Best Players from the Old NIL (Nashville Interscholastic League)

Recommended Posts

gator    0

Who were some of the greatest high school football players from the old NIL (Nashville Interscholastic League), what schools did they play for (whether the school is still open or not), and what years did they play? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

wow, that list would be huge!

A question I would have- what year did the NIL go out of existence?

 

Some I remember were Fred Fisher, Barry Burton, Lonnie Sadler, Jimmy Gaylor, and Ralph Carnahan.

What about Jeff Peoples? Didn't he win the NIL MVP in football and baseball?

Wayne Bush-Glencliff

Kenny Johnson-Donelson

Bonnie Sloan--Litton

Bill Wade--MBA

Chuck Boyd-Madison

Austin Denney-Donelson

Alex Gordy-Litton

Tom Moore-Goodlettsville

Richard Fulton-East

Maxie Runyon--Cohn

Kenneth Duke-Litton

Bobby Tillman--Litton

Mike Jones-Stratford

Preston Brown-Maplewood

Tom Marshall-Mt. Juliet

Greg Gaines-DuPont

George Volkert-Litton

Johnny Tomlinson--Litton (one year anyway)

Chuck Steagald--Donelson

 

There are way too many to mention. Maybe the best back and lineman from each team would be more like it, although that would still be hard to do.

The NIL still existed through the '78 season, although the district set-up had made it a bit irrelevant. The '70 season, when MBA played Two Rivers in the Clinic Bowl, is probably the last time the NIL had real importance.

 

Some that I would list (and I'll go for the obscure here)

 

Danny Hunley (Cumberland)

Terry Potter (Goodlettsville)

David Belt (Madison)

Walter Herod (Hendersonville)

Walter Overton (Pearl)

Jeff Woodcock (Maplewood)

Anybody who lettered (MBA, '66-'68)

E.J. Junior (Mapelwood & University of Alabama) was All-Pro in the NFL

Lester McClain (Antioch & University of Tennessee)

"Jefferson Street" Joe Gillam (Pearl, Tennessee State, Pittsburgh Steelers)

 

Mike Wright (Father Ryan) was probably the best QB from Middle Tennessee until Ingle Martin (MBA) started to play. Is it true that one of Wright's daughters is married to Martin?

Yes, his daughter Jennifer married Ingle a year or so ago. She pitched softball for Alabama for four years. His other daughter, Amy, has dated Matt Frieje (Vanderbilt basketball) for years as well.

 

What about Carlton Flatt, head coach at <a href='http://www.coacht.com/inside/team.cfm?SchoolID=37&SportID=1' target='_blank'>Brentwood Academy</a>? Didn't he play ball in Nashville?

Carlton Flatt played at the old Cumberland High School in North Nashville.
