There have been many advancements in football through the years.

In 1900, Auburn sent John Heisman (an early advocate of the forward pass) to Clemson to elevate the football program there, setting the foundation so that Clemson could take down - over and over again - Alabama more than 100 years later.

THURSDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK: Week Zero gives some an early season start

Later leather helmets were added, with improved designs every generation or so. In more recent times, the NCAA has set up the College Football Playoff, which everyone from Ohio State to the aforementioned Clemson and Alabama programs have enjoyed at the end of the past five seasons.

Now, the first SCISA Football Media Poll in history has been released.

In the T&D Region, Dorchester Academy got votes in Class A play, while Summerton's Clarendon Hall School (with many players from Orangeburg County) is at No. 2 in the 8-man ranks, followed at No. 3 by Andrew Jackson Academy.
