  The History of Davey1

(Continued from home page) 

Every season Dave and Dave work closely together to keep our schedules and game scores accurate and up-to-date.  During the 2018-2019 season our database included 2,075 games involving Northwest Ohio teams, and we provided a score for each of those games.  More than one person is required to keep all of this information organized and complete.

In the early days there was much more work involved to obtain the schedules we needed.  Dave Spengler would contact the schools by sending a letter, sometimes through the postal service and sometimes via fax, to each school (head coach or athletic director) to get their boys varsity basketball schedule.  Each year the response rate increased, and more recently we're able to find some of the  schedules we need  on the web.  However, every year, in September we send out e-mail requests to all head coaches requesting that they submit their schedule directly to us.  Many respond, yet some still do not.  We still persist and somehow find every schedule we need.

When the first schedules were published (2004-2005 season), for Northwest Ohio on Davey1.com, there was a schedule of games for each school, arranged alphabetically by league, and the name of the school.  That's all you got.

During the 2006-2007 season we added team nicknames, and we also added a notation so that you would know whether a game had overtime periods.  That may sound simple, but in the early years there was no way to know whether overtime periods happened or not.

Then in 2007-2008 we added to each schedule the OHSAA Division that each school competed in (1 through 4).  That gives the fans information about the relative size of each school.  In another section of the site is the enrollment numbers for each school that the Ohio High School Athletic Association uses to determine these divisions.

Another addition to the information we provide occurred during the 2008-2009 season when the name of the head coach was added to each schedule.  But we weren't done yet.

The 2009-2010 season included the addition of the Sectional Site where each team would play their first OHSAA tournament game.  Because of changes made by the OHSAA to their tournament drawing procedure this was changed to the District Tournament Site during the 2014-2015 season.

One of Dave Spengler's favorite additions, that he developed just before the 2010-2011 season, was the addition of hyperlinks for each teams opponents so that you could easily switch schedules just by clicking on the opponents name.  You would then jump immediately to that schedule.

At the beginning of the 2012-2013 season we enhanced our listing of League Standings so that they are ordered in the proper way to see which team finished at the top of their respective league.  Another major improvement.

As each season has come and gone we have kept all of our schedules archived so that they can be viewed all the way back to the 2004-2005 season, creating an extensive history for each school.  We believe there is no other single place where our readers can find this kind of information presented for each team.

One of the popular features found on the website is Trail Trash.  It is The Swami's commentary and predictions for the OHSAA boys basketball tournament in Northwest Ohio.  The first edition includes predictions for the Sectional and District Tournament, and the second edition includes The Swami's commentary and predictions for the Regional Tournaments throughout all of Ohio and the State Basketball Tournament.  It is known that the Trail Trash has been used by coaches to motivate their teams when the Swami has chosen them to lose a tournament game....

Issues of the Trail Trash on the website go back as far as 2000.

Alongside Trail Trash are the Boys Tournament Brackets.  These brackets are available as far back as the 2000 tournament.  They include all Sectional and District games played in Northwest Ohio, and all Regional Tournament and State Tournament games played throughout the entire state.  We're proud of the archive of information that we've built over the years.

There is also the Davey1 Hall of Fame, honoring boys teams that have been undefeated during the regular season.  This feature goes back as far as our schedules, to the 2004-2005 season.

We also include the OHSAA Divisional breakdowns, showing which division each team was in going back to the 2007-2008 season.

Be sure to check out some of the other features of our site that we haven't mentioned here.

Dave and Dave have also developed a network of contacts that they use to gather information to help them keep Davey1.com up-to-date and accurate.  It is these people that we have met over the years including coaches, athletic directors, other media people, and fans that have kept us motivated to keep doing what we do to promote boys high school basketball in Northwest Ohio.  We value these friendships tremendously.

We hope you continue to enjoy our coverage of boys high school basketball in Northwest Ohio.
