Super Prep History

Now in its second decade, the Tennessee Super Prep Conference continues to represent the very best in high-school football.  Begun in 1997, the league originally had seven members from across the state:  Baylor School, Brentwood Academy, Christian Brothers High School, Father Ryan High School, The McCallie School, Memphis University School, and Montgomery Bell Academy.  Because of the success and tradition of these seven institutions in the classroom and on the field, the league earned the moniker Super 7.  For nine years, this league established itself as one of the premier conferences in the country.  The member schools won over 75% of its games against non-league opponents and defeated powerful teams from neighboring states like Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Texas.  In fact, in its first nine years, the league had at least one school ranked in the USA Today  Top 25 poll in seven of those years, a truly amazing record.


Since 2005, the league expanded and, in addition to its original seven members, now includes Briarcrest Christian School and St. Benedict of Auburndale from West Tennessee and Ensworth School and Pope John Paul II High School in Middle Tennessee to form the Tennessee Super Prep Conference. The league will now be divided into two divisions: the West Division and the Mid-East Division.  At eleven members, the conference continues to exemplify the adjective super.  Therefore, no matter where you may be in the state, if you are enjoying a Friday night in the Tennessee Super Prep Conference,  you are seeing the best in high-school football.
