It's finally here: Football 2012 can be found in today's Daily Record. Sixty-four pages chock full of team previews, schedules, columns and more. You can find the whole shebang here on GameTimePA.com.

It took many hours of manpower to put the 2012 edition together (read more about that here. So in honor of its release, here's a look back the tab covers that I unearthed from the dusty shelves of my boss' desk.

And if anyone has any updates about where our cover story subjects are today, post them in the comments section!

2011: The cover boy was Red Lion's Tanner Klinefelter. Our story that year focused on how Klinefelter was thrown into the role of starting QB during his sophomore season and how he turned himself into one of the YAIAA's best QBs.

2010: The headline was "Bearcat on the loose." We were referring to William Penn's Kelvin Parker, who gave opponents fits with his size, speed and athleticism.

2009: Central York's Kyle Baublitz was our "Imposing Panther" for the '09 edition. I'm not sure how we got the OK to have him jumping over teammates.

2008: Headline: 'Cats are back (with reinforcements). That's Dallastown's Kole Krout at the head of the line ... the Wildcats had more depth heading into the '08 season than previous years.

2007: In his first year on the job in 2006, West York's Ron Miller, who replaced longtime coach Terry Bupp, took the Bulldogs to the district playoffs. The '07 cover reflected how hungry the Bulldogs were to repeat that success: "Back for seconds." (That's RB Jay Hess in the middle of the main photo.)

2006: "The Ultimate Warrior?" Could only mean one person: Susquehannock's Chaz Powell. He had already committed to Penn State before his senior season.

2005: The cover story featured William Penn coach Matt Ortega, who was heading into his second season at the helm. Ortega is now coaching at Coatesville and will play the Bearcats on Friday to open the 2012 season.

2004: The YAIAA added three teams for the '04 season: Bermudian Springs, Biglerville and Fairfield, turning the league's name to the current York-Adams Interscholastic Athletic Association. On the cover were (clockwise, from top left) Fairfield's Kyle Wachtel, Bermudian Springs' Jon Hade and Biglerville's Jacob Showers.

2003: That's former York Suburban coach John Knowles in the huddle. When Knowles became coach in 2001, the Trojans hadn't had a winning season since 1995. In 2002, Suburban went 9-2 overall. Impressive turnaround!

2002: "Out of the Shadows: Spring Grove finally a force to reckon with." The previous two years, the Rockets had put together their first back-to-back winning seasons since 1990-91. In 2001, the won their first Division I title since 1991 and their gained their first district bid since 1983. There wasn't any ID for the player on the cover ... Anyone have a guess?

2001: Dallastown quarterback Matt Hildebrand was the Wildcats new go-to guy, a year after they went 8-2.

2000: "The face of the YAIAA" that year was Central York's Phillip Musselman. The Panthers, and other AAAA and AAA schools, were frustrated by the league's poor performance in the postseason. Since the District 3 playoffs began in 1983, big-school teams from the YAIAA had gone 2-15 with no titles.

1999: Our feature that year was on Dallastown's Chris Moore, who was an avid reptile collector. Again, I can't find an ID on the South Western player walking out of the Corral. Any help?

Here is a closer look at Moore. He was a big kid:

Oh, and the entire tab in 1999 was 24 pages. The 2012 version was 64. Here is what the York Catholic 'page' back in 1999 looked like:

And here's what it looks like today:
